Professional statement

Dr. Christopher Marquart is a licensed clinical psychologist in Santa Monica California. He recognizes that there is trauma in everyday life. Sometimes these traumas area easy to identify and the path to healing and growth is somewhat clear. But other times, the true causes of our pain are less clear and despite our efforts we cannot alleviate or manage this pain on our own. However, with help, time, and work our trauma can become something we still carry with us, but does not stop us from moving forward.

Dr. Marquart believes that because everyone coming to therapy has their own unique background and story, finding the best approach and fit for each person is essential. To that end, he utilizes an integration of different evidence-based treatment approaches including Psychodynamic, Humanistic, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, in order to provide the richest and most effective experience in therapy.

For Dr. Marquart, therapy provides an opportunity for exploration of who we are, what we want, and how we pursue it. He will earnestly and compassionately help you explore different factors and feelings such as isolation, helplessness, anxiety, sadness, hopelessness, emptiness, or simply feeling stuck which might be keeping you from going after or achieving what you want. Whether you are struggling in school or with peers, facing challenges in your career or relationships, working through a past or recent trauma, or entering into a new phase of your life, he will work to understand you, your experiences, and how together you can create a framework that allows you to live a happier and more fulfilling life.


Message to clients

Most people experiencing some kind of emotional pain want to get better, but may not know where or how to get help. Sometimes people seek therapy to address specific issues or problems that recently occurred such as a sudden illness, the loss of a loved one, or the end of a relationship. Other people may have been carrying their pain for many years and no longer want it to keep them from having the life they want. Whatever your reason for beginning therapy I am ready to work with you to create a framework that allows you to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
