Marina Talley Chatterton, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Los Angeles
I help people who feel blocked professionally, creatively, emotionally or in relationships. These blocks can arise from stressful circumstances, as well as internal dynamic factors like fear or coping with change. I provide individual psychotherapy using a flexible approach grounded in psychodynamic theories to understand problems, and bring about growth and change. I have been described as warm, authentic and direct. I have extensive experience helping people feel more confident and connected with themselves and others.
Specialties include: exploring expectations and disappointments in family, work/career and relationships, transitions & loss, women's health: body image, fertility & postpartum, as well as young adults in college, graduate school and beyond to find their purpose & path. I also help creative individuals (artists, actors, writers, musicians) integrate artistic ability into the demands of professional living.
Additionally I work as the on-site therapist for students at CalArts in Valencia. Call or email to set up a consultation
