Tabitha Durr, LMFT
Iam a licensed marriage and family therapist born and raised in southern California. From a young age I always felt drawn towards supporting people and getting to know their stories, my passion for people is what led me to my work as a therapist. After completing an undergraduate degree in psychology in San Diego, I moved to the Los Angeles area to complete a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary. At Destination Therapy, I offer individual therapy online via tele-health to clients residing in Texas and California.
I support clients by creating a space and relationship in which they are embraced with unwavering empathy and non-judgmental curiosity.
Everyone’s identity is unique and I provide a safe therapy space so that every part of your identity is welcomed and respected. It is my hope that this warm relational environment will encourage you to set goals and take steps towards the healing you are searching for. I help clients further explore and understand their identity, as well as manage symptoms relating to anxiety, low self esteem, body image, depression, perfectionism and life transitions. While working with me, it is my hope that you will build healthy and impactful coping skills as well as work towards finding peace and confidence in who you are and how you can face life’s challenges. My approach is person-centered, trauma informed and collaborative.
A little more about me.
Attending Fuller Theological Seminary for graduate school was an intentional decision, as I desired to learn about how theology and psychology could work together in the process of healing. Our beliefs help us to make meaning of what happens in our life and how we choose to respond. They are a valuable source of strength and an important part of who we are. I respect the beliefs my clients hold and invite my clients to identify how these beliefs can support the therapeutic process.
As well as integrating faith and psychology in my work, I help clients navigate many aspects of their identity, purpose, and their understanding of themselves and their place in the world. By making space for my client’s questions and doubts, I help them overcome feelings of hopelessness, low mood and self doubt. I provide a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental environment for clients to explore their questions about who they are and what they believe about the world without judgment.
Much of my work to date has also been supporting clients in the exploration of self image, low self esteem and body image issues. In alignment with this, I have also been trained to provide counseling to clients who struggle with eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID). The process of recovery involves addressing the emotional, mental, physical, and medical aspects of these diagnoses. I value collaborating with the other members on a client’s care team (e.g. primary care physician, dietitian, etc.) and utilize a collaborative approach when supporting these clients as their clinician.
