Serenity Trauma Healing Center

The creators of the original SERENITY METHOD.


Serenity Trauma Healing Center is at the forefront of mental health care. At our Malibu-based facility, we treat a variety of conditions, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, emotional trauma, and substance abuse. Patients are treated in individual or group settings on an outpatient basis, but we also offer a Partial Hospitalization Program.

Our mental health professionals include medical doctors, nurses, and social workers specializing in adolescent and adult mental health issues. Day treatment and intensive outpatient programs, as well as custom treatment options, are available to provide focused care that targets the patient’s individual needs. A wide range of therapies and techniques can be applied to healing and recovery and help individuals deal with stress and pain.

Serenity Trauma Foundation provides highly specialized services to servicemen and women in the military who have suffered from sexual trauma and other forms of abuse. Our treatment options extend well beyond Malibu. We even partner with organizations to provide sober living housing for clients who come from out of town, or who prefer to stay close by.

Therapies at our center address various types of mental health issues. We can target behavioral health factors and prescribe medication when necessary. Our mental health care professionals understand the far-reaching impacts that trauma can have.
