Sara E Sedlik, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Manhattan Beach
I specialize in couple's therapy and individual wellness, helping those who want to make lasting changes. Learn why you're stuck or feeling lost -- heal what's been blocking you or your partner from feeling fulfilled. I am passionate about helping you tune into your inner voice or "gut feeling" -- that piece of you that lights up when you're listening to what you really need in the moment or doing what you love. Often that part of us gets stifled by a desire to please, avoid pain or guilt, which can result in conflict, anxiety and health issues.
I am passionate about helping couples identify their repetitive, negative cycles and want help finding new ways to engage, build trust and intimacy. Communication, premarital challenges, divorce matters, and parenting support are common topics among couples. I also help individuals manage stress, make decisions, process emotions or heal from trauma.
My style is authentic, direct and creative - tapping into approaches or interventions that meet you where you are in the process. If are ready to strengthen yourself, or your relationship, and uncover what's holding you back, I'm here to support you with compassion and guidance.

Parenting Support Group

A support group for parents who have challenging children or those with strong will, intense emotions or may bring an added level of intelligence, energy or even developmental challenge. Do your friends drive you crazy when they tell you what works for them and you know it won't work for your child? Find those self help books don't ever apply to your kid?
