Therapy In Santa Barbara

Located on the central coast of California, Santa Barbara is the biggest city in Santa Barbara county. With the Santa Ynez Mountains as the background and the Pacific Ocean as the front, Santa Barbara is known for its beautiful beaches and wonderful hiking trails. 

Downtown, Mediterranean-style white stucco buildings with red-tile roofs reflect the city’s Spanish colonial heritage. Restaurants and shops are located on famous State Street which the city  decorates with weekly flags display  to celebrate Downtown’s major festivals, cultural attractions, and local non-profits

Iliana Gelles Therapy is centrally located in the historic Lobero Building known as a landmark of downtown. Offering in-person and online therapy, I am committed to helping Santa Barabara women heal from relational trauma, anxiety, and relationship issues. My approach to therapy comes from a place of collaboration and curiosity based on the latest trauma and neuroscience research. 

My clinical training is on Somatic Therapy and Attachment EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing) which have been proven treatment methods to help clients heal the root cause of their struggles for lasting results.
