Hi. My name is Amy Margolis. I am a licensed therapist and Co-Clinical Director of Santa Monica Counseling. With a background in eating disorders, addictions, anxiety, depression and adoption related issues, I work with individuals and couples and run groups for clients challenged in these areas. The purpose of my website is to help you learn about my practice philosophy and whether working with me might be a fit. Therapy is most effective when the connection between the client and the therapist is good. I know it can be overwhelming to make that choice. You get referrals from friends, medical professionals or insurance companies and you are already overburdened by the crisis causing you to seek out treatment in the first place. Feel free to contact me for a free 15 minute phone consultation before deciding whether you want to come in.
