Mary Barbour, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Santa Monica CA
Initiating therapy is the first step toward actual change. Sometimes, it will feel like your walking through quicksand. Other times it will feel you’re sprinting toward your goals, jumping over hurdles like an Olympic track star. Whatever the pace, I’ll be there with you every step of the way – sitting with you through the painful moments, guiding you through resolving past traumas, and celebrating the victories of the “a-ha” realizations. You’ll start to notice changes. Becoming more present. Feeling more grounded in your choices. Coming away with a renewed sense of faith, resiliency, and courage that give you the confidence to tackle any challenge.
