About Smadar Salzman

As a Licensed Psychotherapist and Certified Complex Trauma Professional with 15+ years experience, I'm passionate about helping individuals increase the quality of the relationships they have with themselves and others. I specialize in early attachment trauma, neglectful and chaotic upbringings, and painful relationship patterns that are repetitions of early traumatic experiences. 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. My therapeutic style is calm, deeply caring, and respectful of each person's unique goals, struggles, and strengths. LGBTQI+, Kink, & Polyamory knowledgeable. Telehealth via HIPAA secure video platform throughout California. Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, CA LMFT Lic. #47213
