Lauren Dummit is an experienced psychotherapist in private practice in Santa Monica. She specializes in helping clients navigate the journey of recovery from trauma, substance abuse, eating disorders and behavioral addictions/compulsions.

Her unique style treats emotional discomfort and pain as an avenue for self-discovery and personal growth. As clients become better able to navigate their inner obstacles, they will rediscover their capacity to find balance and live a life that is healthy, joyful and free.

Lauren creates a comfortable atmosphere where the meaning of each individual's subjective experience is respected. She emphasizes insight, self-awareness, and empowerment to help her clients grow, learn about themselves, and lead more gratifying lives. Through an alliance of trust and collaboration, she works together with her clients to understand the meaning of symptoms.
