Marina Edelman, LMFT

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice in Westlake Village/Thousand Oaks area. I offer solution focused and evidence-based psychotherapy and counseling, including assessment and treatment for a range of emotional, behavioral and psychological difficulties. My philosophy is based on the belief that my clients already have most coping mechanisms. My aim is to help you re-mobilize and refine these coping strategies. The modern, collaborative and brief approach is time sensitive and focused on productivity. I take pride in my ability to empower clients to quickly move on from their problems by helping them to apply new ways of coping, from as early as the first meeting. From the initial consultation you will walk away with a sense of relief, understanding, and a plan. Months of confusion and suffering will disappear. Choosing a therapist you really connect to is one of the most important decisions you can make. I believe that the therapist should assume an active role throughout the therapeutic process rather than remain a passive participant, yet the session is not about me … it’s your time. Unlike many therapists, I believe that direct feedback is an essential part of the journey and when appropriate, I provide answers to questions as they are presented. If you’re not sure exactly what you need, or you want to talk more about how we might work together, I offer all new clients a FREE consultation. Contact me today for your individual, couples, or family issues.
