Hello! My name is Marcellus. Do you find that you get "stuck" along your life's journey and could use a little support making your way? Do your relationships with others or yourself, past or present, get in the way or create barriers for you? The spaces and places we find ourselves in along life's journey can be distressing, problematic, and/or harmful. Being able to navigate those areas of life in an adaptive way can be beneficial to our well-being. I compare therapy to a car's navigation system, you know the destination and have to do the driving and the therapist offers routes and options for you to take. Working together, you can reach your destination safely and at your own pace.

I identify as queer, fat, femme and have a mixture of indigenous and colonizer DNA. I share this first because the way we identify matters. So many reasons and factors stop us from being ourselves around others and often, when we can't fully live who we are, our mental health suffers. If that's you, I'm here to help. We can work through body image issues, disordered eating, anxiety, depression, trauma, conflict management together if you're willing to do the work of honestly engaging in therapy with me. I grew up on the East Coast to immigrant parents from Colombia and lived in SoCal for 15 years and recently moved back home to be near my parents. I have a rescued pitbull that bring me lots of peace and joy and you might see him napping behind me via telehealth sessions. I enjoy hiking, cooking, reading (fiction for fun), and taking care of my indoor plants. I love learning about indigenous wisdom/practices from all over the world, herbalism, tarot, and other healing practices and beliefs that folks use to find meaning and wellness. Last but not least, I really love my job! And I do it because I believe in it and have witnessed so many people shift, grow, break patterns and learn new ones that significantly improve quality of life.

Feeling that nagging anxiety and panic right in the chest but can't slow down? That can be a LOT to carry, all of the time.

If you are needing a safe, nonjudgemental, open space to breathe and find clarity in your mind while learning techniques that will help to foster peace for your future self, then I am the therapist for you. If you are someone who is set out to gain tools and finally ready to tackle those patterns of imposter syndrome, burnout, anxiety around not being enough, and are finally ready to work on improving your self esteem & confidence then I'm the therapist for you. If you are someone who has been looking for an Asian American therapist or a therapist who works from a multicultural lens in order to talk about the ways in which family and cultural impact your current wellness, then I am the therapist for you.

Hello, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in California. I received my Master's from the University of Southern California (USC) and have been practicing for 5 years. I help adults and teenagers be able to sift through negative thoughts, practice coping skills, and provide insight into patterns or cycles that show up in your life to help you be the best you can be.

In our busy and chaotic lives, it's sometimes difficult to make space for ourselves. As a Licensed Clinical Social Work with more than ten years experience working with individuals and families, I can support you in finding that balance and making time for yourself. You deserve it! I offer holistic, client-centered, trauma-informed, and empowering support via evidence-based approaches and the arts to support my clients on their healing journey. If you're looking for someone who will support you in areas of your identify (race/gender/sexuality), relationships, faith, parenting, trauma, and life in general, I am here to support you. I have an extensive history working with survivors of trauma. From this experience, I aim to ensure that clients receive the services that they need and deserve by utilizing evidence based approaches (CBT, Exposure, Psychotherapy, Holistic). I also prioritize creating a space where clients feel encouraged, motivated, and most importantly heard and seen.

“What one person has to offer to another, is their own being, nothing more, nothing less” – Ram Dass. My therapeutic approach is a strength-based perspective that focuses on a person’s innate potential rather than pathologies and shortfalls. Consistent with this approach, my role as a therapist lies not in solving problems but in helping clients examine inhibited issues and biases, identify practical solutions to their problems and progress toward deeper wisdom. I have worked with adults, children and families. This experience has included clients of various ethnicities and addressed a range of mental health issues, interpersonal relationship problems, and life transitions. I draw on my experience of 15 years in travel journalism and Corporate America and this understanding helps me support my clients as they navigate the stress and success in their place of work, endure layoffs, reevaluate priorities, and make renewed efforts towards new beginnings. My therapeutic style is adaptive to the individual needs of my clients. I believe the process of change is an ongoing dialogue. This process can be brief or longer term, depending upon the needs of the client. Sometimes I use mindfulness techniques to supplement therapy.

Hello there! My name is Justin Altman, and I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. My approach to therapy is simple; I'm here to provide non-judgmental and positive support to my clients while occasionally applying a little gentle pressure to encourage them to grow and ultimately thrive. While my primary area of focus is working with individuals in the LGBTQ+, Polyamory/Open relationship, and Kink/BDSM communities, throughout my career I have worked with individuals from all walks of life to help them overcome the barriers keeping them from achieving their goals.
