Hello, and thank you for taking the time to invest in your mental health. Are you having a hard time balancing family, work, and life? Are you struggling with avoidance and anxiety about the future? Are you just ready for a change and aren't sure how to make a plan of action? It's difficult to grow without support and even harder at times to find the tools to carve your own path. If you feel ready to explore how to reach your unique potential; let's figure out some goals, what's in the way, and how we can work through those challenges so you can reach your goals. My background in research, crisis care, inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, in-home therapy, group therapy and outpatient therapy has given me exposure to several forms of therapy. I am currently practicing CBT, DBT, ACT and some elements of other forms of therapy. If you are curious how we could approach your challenges and goals, please reach out and we can discuss options.

When booking a session with me you can expect to be greeted with openness and comfortability. I am a very personable person and aim to ease you into our therapy journey. I provide a safe, relaxing environment where you will feel comfortable uncovering the issues you are experiencing. My approach is calming and kind, and because of my personality I focus on positive outcomes.

My experience covers adults and adolescents in areas of trauma, anxiety, self-esteem, grief/loss, educational and career planning, infertility, adoption, life transitions, and suicidal ideation/attempted recovery. I know therapy can be scary and intimidating, however with me you will feel like I really do care and understand what you are trying to say.

I work with women who are transitioning to motherhood and are learning how to be themselves within their new role. Many of my clients are experiencing a difficult transition to their new role as a mom. They are finding their way into their new identity, feeling as though they have lost their past self, identity, and freedom. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Therapist in California. I received my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of San Diego and my Masters of Social Work at Azusa Pacific University. I have been working as a therapist for 11 years and have experience working with children, families, and individuals to address mental health needs. I specialize in working with postpartum women. I have my Perinatal Mental Health Certification from Postpartum Support International. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which helps to address and heal trauma. I have worked with many individuals who have a history of traumatic experiences in their lives and utilized EMDR to assist in reprocessing their experiences. I use an eclectic approach working with my clients, focusing on person-centered and solution-focused care.

Hello. I'm Robyn, If you are here, there's a good chance that you have been trying your best to navigate challenges that feel like too much. You may be feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, or out of sync with the life you want to live. You may be going through a life transition, have become more aware of past or present traumas impacting you now, or have faced a recent difficult experience, and are ready to begin your healing journey. I help empower teens and adults to overcome past adverse and traumatic experiences to live fulfilling and meaningful lives. Adversity and trauma may have led you to experience anxiety, depression, PTSD, low self-esteem, or relationship challenges, that negatively impact your daily life. But these symptoms do not define you. Rather they speak to the hardships and challenges you have faced. Allow me to offer you a safe space to process your story and learn new skills to begin your healing journey, release shame, build self-compassion, and live authentically YOU. I look forward to working together.

Hello, I am Jennifer. I am a licensed therapist with over 25 years of experience supporting people of all ages through various transitions and challenges. I offer a unique approach to mental health that integrates clinical therapy with moderate physical exercise in the great outdoors. I focus on helping people with anxiety, depression, life transitions, stress/burnout, infertility and alcohol misuse while increasing nourishing habits such as exercise, sleep, nutrition, and other practices that reduce symptoms and calm the nervous system. Have you ever wished you could get in-person therapy without having to sit in an office with the therapist? Do you feel too busy to schedule both therapy and exercise into one day and wish the two could be combined? If so, then "walk and talk" could be a good fit for you. I offer the opportunity to receive counseling or coaching while outside in nature and moving your body. Research demonstrates that both exercise and spending time outdoors in sunlight and green spaces provides a reduction in symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and stress while improving mood overall. My unique "walk and talk" method addresses all three aspects of healing and growth: physical, psychological, and spiritual. Have you found yourself wondering if you are drinking too much and/or too often? Are you tired of experiencing low energy, anxiety, depression, disrupted sleep, sugar cravings, etc. and you wish you had a coach to support you as you navigate a new way of living alcohol free? If you are sober curious, I am here to help!

Do you worry about (or avoid) certain situations for fear of panic attacks/shortness of breath/stomach distress/intrusive thoughts of anticipated catastrophe? Do you stay up at night worrying about that thing you said/did/didn’t do/remembered/forgot/found on WebMD's symptom checker? Do you have specific fears that paralyze you? You may have an anxiety disorder. Anxiety sucks, therapy can help! I specialize in helping you put anxiety in its rightful place. Every emotion needs a place at the table, but when anxiety is the loudest (or only) voice life becomes out of balance, and our choices no longer feel like conscious decisions. My approach is based on balancing acceptance and change. I operate from a person-centered humanistic perspective. That means I offer a non-judgmental safe place to work on issues that don't always feel so safe, using warmth and humor. I incorporate EMDR, mindfulness based therapy, self-compassion, attachment work, and CBT anxiety reduction strategies. I believe in this work, and have seen the healing that is possible when people find the right treatment. If the time has come for you to move toward change and create some balance I would love to help! Please email me to set up a consultation call.

Hi there, I'm Alicia. Are you feeling lost or stuck in some aspect of your life and finding it hard to move forward? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? With your permission, I help to hold the container for deeper exploration and healing. I am a trauma-based therapist trained in EMDR, Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). I believe that each of us possesses an internal source of wisdom that can be cultivated through psychotherapy, psychedelic medicines, meditation practices, yoga and other connecting practices that link the brain, body and spirit. My therapeutic approach has a foundation of mindfulness and compassion, curiosity and respect. I often use EMDR as an evidence-based approach to working with trauma and other challenges. I am sensitive to the impact of one's social, physical and cultural environment as well as systems of oppression. Clients say my approach is warm, relational, collaborative, strengths-based and trauma-informed. I cannot do the work for you, but I can help you along the way, and it is truly an honor and a joy for me.

Hello and welcome! My name is Monique, and I am a clinical therapist. I am looking forward to meeting people where they are and becoming a small, but meaningful part of their journeys. I’ve been doing this work for a while now and I know the importance of research to finding an appropriate fit. My goal is to be of service and to help people that are looking to grow and heal. I have extensive training and experience in evidence-based modalities such as CBT and trauma-informed care. I have worked with several populations, including but not limited to; veterans, college students, people who struggle with addiction, couples, families, people struggling with marginalized identities as well as those looking to improve their quality of life, by way of personal growth, or trauma resolution. The approach that I employ is from a humanistic perspective. I understand the importance of respect and safety to the explorative process of being in therapy. CBT is utilized as a proven and effective way to treat a myriad of disorders, or simply to grow in perspective as an individual or as a member of a family unit/romantic partnership. I wish you only the best on your journey to wellness, even if our paths do not cross, best of luck. If you are interested in the services that I provide, please do not hesitate to reach out and start the process. I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi, I'm Wendy Mark, LMFT, your Chronic Pain Therapist in Los Angeles, California. Are you feeling stuck in chronic pain and doctors have told you there isn’t anything more they can do? Have your activities decreased so much that you are no longer doing the things that you used to enjoy? Whether you have been dealing with pain for 6 months or 50 years, we can work together to help you decrease your pain levels and get you back to living a life filled with joy in a reasonably short amount of time. In my own journey through pain, I tried every treatment possible to get rid of the pain and I was desperate to find a treatment that worked. I was lost. Then I discovered Pain Reprocessing Therapy, and it was a total game changer for me! While my passion is working with clients with chronic pain, I have also had over 15 years of success in working with a wide range of mental health issues including ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, relationship issues, school problems, trauma and PTSD, and women's issues.

Change is stressful and adolescence is a period of enormous change - especially so these days with the pandemic, social media, gender politics, and looming concerns about the future. Many, many teens today feel overwhelmed by pressure. Struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm, relationship problems, drugs, alcohol and academic problems is common. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that by 2021 49.5% of adolescents in the U.S. had a mental disorder, with females, LGBTQIA, and multiracial individuals at the highest risk. If you are a teen or the parent of a teen in pain and looking for a way forward, I can help. I began work as a counseling psychotherapist in 1994. Since then I've helped many adolescents, adults, couples, and parents ease their suffering and overcome problems such as these. My effectiveness as a helper comes from 1) listening carefully to understand your concerns and experience 2) non-judgementally accepting you as you are 3) knowing that you are the expert on you and planning treatment collaboratively with you to achieve your goals. 4) Providing the tools of skills training and coaching to empower you to heal and thrive For me, it's all about knowing that my clients don't need to be fixed. They need to be understood, accepted, provided with effective tools for solving their problems and trusted to overcome their difficulties in a way that works for them so they can feel better, function better and begin living life as they choose to. My approach is straightforward and built on compassion and evidence-based techniques.

I do not currently treat cisgender heterosexual males, children or adolescents, and court mandated clients.
