Rima Jomaa

(MA, LMFT)

About Me

I am a marriage and family therapist from Southern California with over 9 years of experience working in private practice. Throughout my career, I've worked in different settings with many populations, including providing treatment to clients with depression, anxiety, addiction, Autism and other developmental disorders, relationship and family issues, issues of confidence, self-esteem and motivation, and I specialize in working with clients that are looking to find their path and purpose in life. In addition to being an MFT, I'm a certified yoga teacher and I promote an overall program of wellness through mental, physical & spiritual health and nutrition.

My clients enjoy the warm rapport they have with me. I approach each client from a unique perspective as each client is unique. I collaborate with them to understand their needs and goals, and from there I create a treatment plan that is special for them. I believe that each client has a story that can be retold in a new way, and a story that is still being written, so the middle and ending can change as the client transforms. The approaches I use are a blend of cognitive-behavioral and humanistic, as well as various techniques from other theories (as appropriate for the client).

The first step towards healing and living a fulfilling and enriching life is to reach out to those who can support you, and I'm always honored to provide that support to my clients. If you feel like I could be the person to help you, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Together, my clients and I create magic!

An update after talking to Rima for a couple of months. She’s truly amazing! It’s totally life changing experience for me working with her. She always listens, cares, but also asks the question right on point which helps me face the truth myself. Highly recommend, and also, her podcast is wonderful too!

I’ve tried therapy many times in my life but I have never clicked with a counselor quite like I have with Rima. She’s so wonderful and has made me look at therapy in a whole new light.

She’s very real, thoughtful, helpful and kind I’m very happy with her work and support.

Rima has been so helpful in guiding me towards self improving actions and understanding my own emotions. She has been instrumental in some huge steps in self reflection! I appreciate her and as a new comer to therapy never felt overwhelmed with her during this journey. She is so relatable and does not make me feel like I'm talking to a dry medical professional. She's easy to open up to. So thankful to have her.

Even I just started the first few sessions with Rima, I can feel that she does have the magic in her that I believe will help me get through what I am experiencing. I have great faith in her experience and expertise. And I trust her truly.

She is really good. I have had many counselors but I feel like me and her connect and can really get somewhere. Cannot complain! She is great!

Rima is very kind, proactive and honest. I appreciate her expertise, challenges and sound advice. She’s been the perfect accountability coach. I appreciate her guidance through this chapter, and am so grateful to have found her.

Written by D.O. on Sep 21, 2018 after counseling with Rima for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Rima has been a tremendous source of support for me, in the month that we have been working together. She has been amazingly responsive and intuitive about me. She has provided me with several strategies and resources to address my specific concerns and issues. She also responds to me very quickly, and that has helped during tough times. It is clear that Rima has had a lot of experience with other men that share the same issues as I do, and she helps me put my issues into perspective and offer potential solutions based on the experience of others. I have had a wonderful experience with Rima, and I look forward to our sessions together.

I am grateful I took the chance and got paired with Rima. She understood what was troubling me, really quickly had some supportive actionable suggestions, and asked the right questions to get to the heart of my distress. She is compassionate, practical, and understands the nuances of creative work. I am so relieved to be feeling better -- my friends and family have even noticed the change in me. Thank you Rima!

Written by M.I. on Sep 18, 2018 after counseling with Rima for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Rima has been great so far but my review should be taken with a grain of salt as I have only been working with her for a little over a week. For the week we have been working together though, she has been great and is giving me the tools that I hope will lead to a successful journey. She is very responsive and as of now, I believe she will be the ideal person to guide me through this process.

Written by W.I. on Sep 17, 2018 after counseling with Rima for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, eating, and self esteem

Rima is like a godsend for me! I was in a really dark place when she magically dropped into my life. I really appreciate her perspective and all the resources she’s been bringing into my life.

Written by B.R. on Sep 13, 2018 after counseling with Rima for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and eating

Rima has been completely thorough from the very beginning. She really listens to all my needs, worries, troubles, and everything I need help with. She's perfect for the job in every way possible. I would recommend her to anyone that needs their mental health addressed in any way.

Written by S.A. on Sep 12, 2018 after counseling with Rima for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I have just recently started working with Rima and she is absolutely amazing. I don’t know how BetterHelp could have paired me with a more perfect match. She is compassionate, patient, and honest. When I wanted to seek counseling, I was worried about being able to connect with a stranger on the internet but she has been so warm and welcoming from the beginning. I can’t wait to continue my journey with her!
