Hi, I'm Wendy Mark, LMFT, your Chronic Pain Therapist in Los Angeles, California. Are you feeling stuck in chronic pain and doctors have told you there isn’t anything more they can do? Have your activities decreased so much that you are no longer doing the things that you used to enjoy? Whether you have been dealing with pain for 6 months or 50 years, we can work together to help you decrease your pain levels and get you back to living a life filled with joy in a reasonably short amount of time. In my own journey through pain, I tried every treatment possible to get rid of the pain and I was desperate to find a treatment that worked. I was lost. Then I discovered Pain Reprocessing Therapy, and it was a total game changer for me! While my passion is working with clients with chronic pain, I have also had over 15 years of success in working with a wide range of mental health issues including ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, relationship issues, school problems, trauma and PTSD, and women's issues. I enjoy empowering clients to reach their full potential.

I am a curious, authentic, and a very human therapist. I love working with people who want to do the work. I am here to provide a safe space that will foster vulnerability and growth. Therapy is so hard sometimes. I am here to make that pill a little easier to swallow. We fall into times where we feel stuck, don't have sufficient self-love, or just have ran out of hope. I am here to support you in getting unstuck, changing your perspective, increasing your self-love, and remind you that there is hope. Just because we don't see the light at the end of the tunnel, it doesn't mean it's not there. In the nature of being authentic: If you're looking for a "cookie-cutter therapist", I am not the one. If you are looking for heavy homework/worksheets, I am not the one. I am very human. At times, I cuss. Because, at times, life just fucking sucks. I am very open to feedback: I have the mental health portion of my job down, but you are the expert in you.

Through my therapy journey I have gained much experience in working with diverse people.

Hi all! Have you ever wondered what life would be like free of anxiety and depressive symptoms? Are you feeling lost and in need of a purpose? I love helping folks recover from issues like anxiety, depression, OCD and complex post-traumatic stress. Healing and recovery are possible! I will work with you to establish small achievable goals we can take baby steps toward. I also believe in the importance of being able to explore and process feelings that were not safe to share in the past. Healing is a process that takes time and I will help guide you. I can help you get to the root of the issue and teach you skills you can use all of your life in various situations. I do inner-child/ inner-adult work for those interested, but I also use the more practical REBT to help shift rigid perspectives that keep us stuck. I know seeking therapy can feel scary and intimidating, you have already taken the brave step of seeking assistance. I will meet you with patience and empathy and help you realize the strength you never knew you had. Let's work together!

Are you looking for nonjudgmental listening, do you struggle with anxiety and worry over daily living, do you need support in a phase of life struggle? Through an initial assessment we will work together on developing your goals to support growth to better living. You will receive compassionate listening that provides a nonjudgmental space to work through challenges that you may be going through. I specialize in children, youth, and families dealing with depression, anxiety, ADHD, and mood disorders. I have been providing therapeutic services to youth and families since 2009 when I started working in the school system providing therapy to students through their IEP. Currently, I have been in private practice since 2018 providing therapy to adults and youth utilizing Solution Focused, CBT, and DBT therapy styles in my practice supporting patients with mood disorders, depression, anxiety and life transitions. In my teletherapy practice, I have moved away from working with patients under 12 as I find that in-person therapy is more effective for younger children. I received my Master's Degree from California State Long Beach and earned my licensure hours through the Los Angeles Unified School District. My hope for patients is for them to be able to learn skills that will help them move forward from current challenges on their own.
