Hey I'm Mandy. I am a therapist committed to supporting others.

 

I am an open and empathetic listener who can help you gain insight and offer support. 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.  

Seeking therapy is a strength not a weakness.

 

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.  

 

In your corner.

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. 

Healing wounds and promoting well being.

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. For your safety and convenience, I offer in person and online services. I'm proud to be part of the West Coast Therapy Collective in Encinitas, California. 

 

 

                                                                                             I look forward to connecting with you!
