Darrell Walters, LMFT, MDiv, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Monica
I work with kids, teens, and emerging adults. I enjoy collaborating with families to help them move through difficult challenges with intention and compassion. I frequently work with developmental and life-adjustment challenges. This includes executive functioning issues, like ADHD, moodiness and depression, or anxiety due to high academic pressure, life stress, or divorce. I also work extensively with technology-related issues: healthy-mind balance, boundary setting, as well as mindfulness practices for relaxation and expanding frustration tolerance.
In addition to my clinical work, I work with Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., and the team at the Mindsight Institute, developing resources based on Brainstorm, No-Drama Discipline, and The Whole-Brain Child, best-selling books on practical strategies for nurturing your child's developing mind.
I frequently speak on technology, creativity, and the brain, and I helped develop Tech Savvy Parents, a brain-based approach for parents to help balance the screen-time chaos at home.
