Professional statement

Davida Price, LMFT, is a psychotherapist and Board Certified Music Therapist in Southern California. Davida’s clients are creatives, technologists, first responders, helpers, parents, seekers, and folks of all ages who find themselves struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship conflict, life transitions, parenting, chronic illness or pain, or creative blocks. Davida is trained in trauma informed care, including EMDR, polyvagal theory, and ego state parts work. Davida is also trained in and uses ACT, CBT, DBT, mindfulness, music therapy and yoga.

Using a trauma informed lens, Davida learns about a client’s story, and uses a warm and collaborative approach to offer suggestions for healing.

Message to clients

You are so brave right now. Looking for a counselor is vulnerable and it can be hard to find someone who is a good fit. I am very client focused and collaborative, I can provide structure and a specific plan, or I can be flexible and provide a space for catharsis. I am happy to offer traditional talk therapy, but if you are interested in engaging in other approaches, you are welcome to come to your telehealth session with an instrument, journal, yoga mat, and/or art supplies.

This is your process and your healing. I look forward to joining you on your journey.
