Dr. Laurie Margaritonda is a licensed clinical psychologist based in the San Francisco Bay Area who is currently accepting clients online anywhere in California. She supports individuals and couples invested in personal growth and healing. Her clients long to live into their fullest potential, however are often stuck in outdated patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving, and relating that cause pain and distress. They seek to know their true nature, but find themselves bound up by identities that feel inauthentic and restricting. Laurie helps her clients navigate these challenges while guiding them towards the creation of new patterns and ways of being that support their deepest desires and goals.
Laurie has over 15 years experience working with individuals, couples and groups and her approach to therapy is holistic, integrative, and collaborative. She empowers her clients to access the healer within and transform their limiting beliefs and self-defeating behaviors to live more fully, and to enjoy more satisfying relationships with themselves, others, and the world. She engages an integral approach to therapy that includes depth work, mindfulness, and behavioral strategies. Generating awareness and insight is critical for growth, as is grounding that knowledge in skillful, practical, action-based change.
Laurie’s style is warm and compassionate, while also engaging and direct. She meets you where you are at and assists you in moving forward. She believes in the power of healing and transformation to create lasting change, and is dedicated to maintaining an inclusive practice, honoring and welcoming beings of all backgrounds and identities.
