Therapist in Marina Del Rey, California, Debra Schmid, LMFT

Debra Schmid, LMFT

I enjoy working with children and adolescents because they are so resilient and willing to try new things. I grew up competing in a sport, so I know the pressures of managing all the things kids and teens have to these days including the hours of practice for sports, academic challenges and navigating the social and emotional areas of life. All of which are occurring as kids are trying to find out who they are. It is hard and can take a toll.

I attended the University of Riverside and received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in History. I received my Master of Science in Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage, Family and Child Therapy from the University of La Verne. I have experience in community mental health, group homes, youth with dual diagnosis and on probation, foster families, and private/group practices. I am certified in the following evidence-based practices: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Seeking Safety and Triple P (Positive Parenting Program), MAP (Managing and Adapting Practice), and Aggression Replacement Training (ART).

I am a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Therapist (#79085) and I care deeply about clients receiving the treatment they deserve in a nonjudgmental and caring environment.
