Rhona Rosenblatt is an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) providing psychotherapy to children, teens, adults, and couples. In addition to talk therapy, I incorporate aspects of somatic work, which is mindful attention to what is held non-verbally in the body. If you are interested, we will explore physical patterns in the body, whether from trauma or other life experiences, that may be impacting you in the present. Clients often tell me that learning to pay attention to the body provides an additional path toward healing that talk therapy alone has not.
I currently see clients to consult on parenting, adjustment to changing circumstances, low mood, depression, anxiety, panic, OCD, PTSD and related disorders. In addition to my private practice, I see clients at a treatment center for people experiencing unresolved trauma symptoms which are interrupting their daily lives.
My most recent past experience includes working as a therapist in Santa Monica and Malibu schools. Before that, I worked for ten years in the field of domestic and international adoption with prospective parents, new parents, multi-racial families, birth mothers, and adoptees, and spent many years working with foster children who were victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect. I have presented in the community numerous times on the subjects of adoption, foster care, and infertility. I earned my Master's Degree (MSW) from UCLA in 1999 and became licensed as an LCSW in 2001. I draw primarily from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Integrative Body Psychotherapy practices and principles.
I am married and have two wonderful children and a dog. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and breathing in fresh mountain and ocean air.
