Hello, I’m Dominique Gillis a licensed psychotherapist in Santa Monica. Therapy in Color LA is a space for all people to start their journey towards healing. As a Black Woman I recognize that there may be spaces in which not all people of color see themselves reflected back at them. Therapy historically is one of those spaces. My hope is that if you are a person of color or a person who values diversity in your life Therapy in Color LA will be a space you feel safe, seen and heard. I received a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of La Verne. I have worked for over 10 years within community mental health settings and with young adults in college counseling centers. I specialize in helping women restore from issues related to relationships, self-esteem, career/life transitions, depression and anxiety. As a wife and mother of two I also know the value that couples and post-partum therapy can bring. I strive to bring my life experiences accompanied with an eclectic use of evidence based treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness based interventions into the session. I work in collaboration with my clients and believe that you are the expert on your life. My role is to be a guide that can bring about new ways of thinking and engaging with issues that may be standing in your way. Thank you for taking the time to explore how therapy can be beneficial in your life and I look forward to hearing from you.
