You are tired of worrying all the time; whether it is about your relationship, your anxiety, or how you feel about yourself.

You wish you can trust yourself and feel more confident.

You are ready to go deeper and heal at the root.

Hello, I am Iliana Gelles, Santa Barbara Therapist

I will help you learn to trust yourself, reduce anxiety, and feel more connected in your relationships, healing the struggles from the inside out.

You've had this dream in your head for so long, but the reality of your day-to-day life just doesn't match up. Perhaps you wonder why relationships have to be so hard? Do you find yourself asking,” why do I feel overwhelmed”?  Do you wonder if your anxiety is affecting your relationships and your life? One thing is for sure, you are ready for a change!

I am here to help you! I am passionate about helping women heal through my therapy services in California. I believe that in order to create real change we need to address the root cause. I know this because I did it myself!  We are shaped by our earlier experiences in life, and these create patterns that affect our relationships and how we experience the world. 

I have made this work my mission because I believe that when women are able to heal themselves, their relationships and lives change for the better.
