Do you struggle with any of these?

I might be the right therapist for you

Esma Verma, LCSW

Hi, my name is Esma. I'm a licensed therapist, practicing for 10 + years with a Master of Social Work from the University of Southern California. I'm also a certified clinical trauma professional and a level 2 Brainspotting Clincian. 

Clients come to my practice looking for a therapist who can get to the root of their problem. 

I specialize in helping you overcome feelings of anxiety, process unresolved trauma and build confidence so that you can live your best life.  I will support you through life transitions and help you feel less stuck and stressed out. 

My style is caring, interactive and dynamic, focusing on the mind-body connection.  I have a nurturing, caring personality which I combine with practical therapeutic solutions and exercises  in order to help you reach your goals and achieve change. I understand that having a safe and caring connection with your therapist is  key in achieving healing, revealing hidden strengths and reaching your potential.

I often use tools like somatic therapy, brainspotting, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and memory reconsolidation. The goal of these techniques is to dislodge old patterns and bring the mind and body together so you can experience life with authentic ease. 

Having a dedicated and caring therapist who can walk you through improving your mental health can often lead you to the growth and happiness you are looking for.  

I'm able to gently guide and challenge my clients on their journey to healing and to create a life that allows for experiencing more love, abundance, aliveness and lasting change.  

I show up as my authentic self to each session because I know how important it is to be able to trust and relate to your therapist.

Sometimes all you need is a guide. A professional who has expertise not only through years of knowledge and clinical experience but also through personal experience. 

I've experienced anxiety and trauma myself and have developed a unique toolbox that I have used in my own healing journey.

"My therapeutic approach is one of wholeness

Rather than finding temporary relief of symptoms, I help clients find lasting growth and healing."

It's Your Journey 

You get to decide where to go from here

I support clients through processing unresolved trauma, enhancing  self-love, conquering anxiety, and clearing inner-child wounds by integrating mind, body, and spirit. This is a safe and dedicated container for deep, intensive work that sets the foundation for transformation.

I believe everyone can grow beyond past experiences and present challenges. You don't have to continue feeling stuck and overwhelmed, and you don't have to do it alone. 

I also specialize in complex ptsd C-PTSD and adults who experience relationship and attachment issues due to childhood trauma and emotional neglect. 


Somatic techniques can help you to detach from unwanted energy, emotions and negative core beliefs that may have attached to you during a traumatic event, inner child wounding or period of chronic stress. 

You’ve been living this way for so long. Consider what it could feel like to start making yourself a priority.

How I Work:

Integrative Therapy

I combine tried and tested techniques and personalize them into a unique approach to help guide you into your healing journey, learn to uncover root issues and let go of old patterns that may be keeping you from reaching your goals

My therapeutic approach is one of wholeness. Rather than finding temporary relief of symptoms, I help clients find lasting growth and healing.

Build Resilience by Tapping into Hidden Strengths

My goal is to help clients reach a happier and more balanced place, armed with a toolbox that they can use for the rest of their lives.

I work with clients who are feeling stuck and overwhelmed but have the desire to improve. Clients who are highly motivated to start working on themselves.

I work with clients to deepen their self-awareness and help them gain insight into their lives, work, and relationships, aligning their choices with their values, all while bringing attention and healing at an energetic level.

Learn to identify root issues that create unwanted patterns in your life and modify behaviors that are limiting your growth and life satisfaction.
