Hey I’m Mandy. I am a therapist committed to supporting others.
I believe therapy is a collaborative process between the client and the therapist. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker originally from Northern California. I have experience working with people of all different backgrounds and professional settings. I have practiced in mental health agencies, schools, non profits, and the juvenile court system.
Reaching outside yourself for support takes courage. Navigating and sustaining healthy relationships can be tricky. Learning to be kind and compassionate towards yourself is even harder. I believe therapy can be transformative and a powerful tool to help build a meaningful and purpose driven life.
As your therapist, we can work together to help you with issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma and relationship struggles. I offer an open minded and non judgmental approach. I believe that true change comes from a strong alliance between client and therapist. Therapy is not an action that is done “to you” but a journey we are on together.
My hope that together, we can get you to a place of peace, balance and happiness. I believe in the deep healing through EMDR and have seen first hand the amazing transformation in clients addressing distressing events or past traumas. I am an EMDRIA approved EMDR Therapist (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy) trained by the Parnell Institute which specializes in Attachment Focused EMDR.
I offer a BIPOC & LGBTQ+ Safe Space.
