Professional statement

Marty Schwebel is a mental health therapist licensed to practice in California and Texas. He offers a comprehensive set of services that includes treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, addiction, and more. His clients are often typical high achievers, bright and ambitious on the outside, but silently struggling with impostor syndrome, painful pasts, traumatic experiences, and other challenges that keep them from truly being the creative, carefree, compassionate people they know they were meant to be.

Marty’s therapeutic style is centered on non-judgment, creating a welcoming space for clients of all backgrounds and walks of life to feel safe to share and explore. But more than that, he provides something essential that most people have too little of in their lives: a genuine caring presence who wants to know the real them, beyond the “invincible” exterior.

Marty works with adults of all ages and backgrounds, including individuals and couples. He primarily offers video and telephone therapy sessions, as well as a limited number of in-person sessions at his Petaluma, CA office.


Message to clients

With me, you won’t get the stereotypical therapist who nods silently from his chair, or peppers you with vague questions like “how does that make you feel?” Instead, we’ll focus on proven techniques, like EMDR, as well as other evidence-based approaches that lead to real and lasting change in your life.

The goal of our time together is to give you the support and tools you need to get better, with zero judgments. I genuinely care for each and every person in my practice. I want to join you where you are and listen to the deeper painful thoughts and feelings that are keeping you from living in peace.

As your therapist, I want to be the one who encourages you to grow and gives you the courage to make positive changes. I've seen first hand how much my clients grow as a result of therapy. You are taking one of the most important steps you will ever take in your life. Therapy simply works.
