Marilyn Ashley, MA, MFTI, Marriage & Family Therapist Intern in Hermosa Beach
Are you feeling are tired, stressed, or overcommitted? It can be so easy to fall into the routine of going through the motions of everyday life, feeling as if you're "just surviving." Your intentions are there, giving to others, so much so that we lose sight of ourselves. Are you in pain from a recent or past hurt? I provide therapy to many people facing similar concerns. My approach is focused on making meaningful changes by uncovering and understanding who you truly are, what works for you and what doesn't. I help people understand themselves so they can live happier, more productive lives.
My professional experience includes helping couples and individuals on issues including loneliness and loss, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, personal fulfillment, and relationship intimacy. In addition, I have extensive unique experience and training with working with First Responders and their families.
I offer a free 20 minute consultation to address any specific questions you may have. I offer secure online therapy for those who cannot make it to my office. Let me help you take the next step to a more meaningful life. To learn more call, e-mail, or visit my website.
