Ida Gardner


I completed my undergraduate coursework at California State University, Dominguez Hills. I went on to receive a Masters at the University of Santa Monica. My graduate school education was immersive and comprehensive. I especially enjoyed my coursework in family dynamics and couples. 

I continually work to stay current on the latest research and trends in psychology. I regularly attend conferences, seminars, and participate in training workshops. I am a member of the Next Level Practitioner Group, which gives me access to the most influential minds and cutting-edge practices in the field of psychology. Most recently, I completed an intensive certificate program in the Mother-Daughter Attachment Model through The Mother-Daughter International Coaching Institute.

A Letter to my clients-to-be

Thank you for reading this letter. Asking for help and being vulnerable is not easy. I feel truly blessed and honored that I can share this journey with you. I had the privilege of growing up in a big loving Argentinian/Italian family that shaped who I am today. I moved to the US in 1998 and now I call Los Angeles my home. It is the place where I belong. In my previous career, I was a wedding planner and I experienced weekend after weekend my clients living the most wonderful day of their lives. But now I am able to go a step further by helping my clients in their everyday lives and help them to find true transformation from their heart and their past.

As a wedding planner, I found that I often counseled, celebrated and grieved with my brides, couples and families.  With the majority I remained connected and continued to be a source of counsel. Through these experiences I felt compelled to expand my knowledge and raining to psychology in order to help navigate this beautiful journey of life.


I offer a 10 minute free consultation and would love to explore your needs to make sure I can be of the highest service on your journey.


Thank you again for reaching out, asking for help is not easy and you have already taken a powerful step on your journey.  Know that even if you feel scared or alone, there is always a way out of any situation, and one that can be win-win for any relationship. 


In love and light,


-- Ida
