Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #121153 

Legal name: Dena Sara Schwimmer

Who we strive to be and the obstacles that get in our way can be challenging to explore. As a Mindfulness and Trauma trained therapist, I believe in creating a collaborative space for positive change, expanding communication skills, growing trust and resolving the obstacles that block your path to peace, creativity, and joy. I believe that you hold the answers to your own happiness and wellbeing. Learning mindfulness techniques and understanding how the body processes trauma can help you heal from the past and present. Together, we can find the pathways to access and fortify your unique gifts and unexplored talents allowing you to grow into the person you always imagined.


Working with individuals, couples, and families while creating a safe environment, allows for an authentic, compassionate, and non-judgmental experience. Helping you focus on your strengths to create positive change to become your best self with intention is a journey towards inspiration and healing.


I am the co-founding partner of growURpotential - a nonprofit agency.  We provide therapy for individuals, couples, and families. We passionately advocate for LGBTQIA and all vulnerable clients.  I welcome you to contact me for a consultation. 


We are a nonprofit community counseling agency, committed to expanding access to supportive services. With compassion, collaboration, and respect we provide affordable mental health care including programs that strengthen adults, youth, families, and communities. 


We believe mental health care is a right, not a privilege. By providing affordable mental health services and effective community programs we increase access and utilization of supportive services that contribute to improved adult, youth, and family functioning. We are certain this will lead to fortified communities in Los Angeles.
