Telehealth Update: Please note that at this time and until further notice, I am making the transition to full-time telehealth permanent. This means that remote therapy via HIPAA secure video will remain my primary mode of conducting therapy for all clients, both new and existing, even after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. If you are interested in working with me virtually, you must reside within the state of California due to current licensing restrictions. Contact me to learn more.
Individual THERAPY For complex Trauma (CPTSD)
With direct, proven approaches to helping you process and resolve trauma, I don't just help you “get past” the past. I help you to understand the trauma and its impact, make sense of what happened to you, and restore your life so you can feel safe, secure, and whole again. I specialize in helping individual adults heal from the damaging effects of abusive and neglectful relationships, whether in childhood or adulthood.
HIPAA Secure online therapy
Online teletherapy can be as effective as office-based therapy, eliminates time spent in traffic, and decreases time away from family and work. In today's world, teletherapy just makes sense. It's the qualified therapy you need, delivered in a modern way. You choose the day and time that fits your schedule and connect via secure video using your phone or computer.
I'M SMADAR SALZMAN, LMFT
Do you keep finding yourself in relationships that hurt and can’t figure out why? Do you feel it's a struggle to get the love and stability in relationships that you so crave? I can help you. Our early, formative relationships have a big impact on how we relate to others and ourselves. If those relationships are somehow lacking (due to emotional or physical neglect) or disrupted (due to abuse or loss), it can profoundly affect fundamental aspects of our sense of self and our ability to form satisfying relationships.
I'm a psychotherapist in private practice since 2008. I specialize in supporting people with interpersonal and complex trauma backgrounds in navigating a variety of life and relational challenges. I began offering online therapy in 2014, and was one of the first in the field to provide video based online therapy as an option.
I look forward to helping you learn to trust yourself and others, feel safe and secure in relationships, and build a greater sense of self-worth. I welcome diverse populations in my therapy practice, including all sexual orientations, genders, and relationship structures.
GETTING STARTED IS EASY
Schedule an initial therapy session to get a sense of what our working relationship might feel like, or send me an email if you have questions about how I work and if we would be a good fit. Teletherapy via HIPAA secure video is available for California residents.
