Thank you for valuing yourself enough to access support. You are on the right path. Much of my work has focused on supporting individuals managing the symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, family discord, school avoidance, body dysmorphia, and disordered eating.

My goal for working with you is to achieve the most profound change in the shortest period of time. Being influenced by body-based modalities such as Somatic Experiencing and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), we are able to go beyond traditional dialogue together and access trauma stored in the body.

Combining these practices with a relationship based in authenticity is what I have experienced to be the key to progress. My approach is especially beneficial when working with clients who are experiencing physical manifestations of their emotional suffering.

"Traumatic symptoms are not caused by the event itself. They arise when residual energy from the experience is not discharged from the body. This energy remains trapped in the nervous system where it can wreak havoc on our bodies and minds" - Peter Levine

I believe one of the bravest and greatest acts of self-care is to ask for help and support when needed. Through the use of an individualized and holistic approach, I encourage clients to recognize their wholeness; emphasizing mind, body and soul connection to support a person's overall well being. I believe physical and emotional wellbeing are profoundly interconnected. 

I am passionate about supporting folks who may be struggling with eating disorders, body image issues, anxiety, trauma, and issues related to gender diversity and acceptance through the use of CBT, ACT, mindfulness training, and trauma informed care. 

I was trained as a research assistant in the UCLA Marriage and Relationships Lab where I received my B.A. in sociology with an emphasis in psychology and then continued my education at California Lutheran University where I earned my Master's degree in marriage and family therapy. It was during my time in graduate school where I was trained to specialize in trauma and found my passion for working with the body and nervous system as it relates to ways in which trauma manifests within us. I now utilize Brainspotting in my practice for this reason.

I have worked in a community counseling center and private practice settings to support individuals, couples, and families of various backgrounds. It would be an honor to support you on your journey.

"My purpose is to guide individuals through their mental health concerns, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and relationship challenges using CBT and mindfulness strategies. I take a holistic therapeutic approach that is rooted in person-centered therapy, which means I practice empathy and non-judgement in every session. I work primarily with K-12 grade level children and promote mental health services within education to ensure their academic, social, and emotional success, as well as help navigate crises at school. I am excited to continue working with adolescents and further provide services to young adults.

 

I am deeply committed to helping others develop their identity, self esteem, and confidence by teaching them to identify their core beliefs, thought patterns, and the impact of their cultural backgrounds and personal experiences. I hope that, together, we can look inward and heal to create change in your external world where you feel worthy and empowered to live happier and healthier."

Life is about maintaining balance in all aspects, through love. There is so much out there to learn and grow from, so why not have fun doing it?
A little about me: I am a huge nerd, which looks like constantly listening to audibles and/or podcasts such as Huberman Lab and non-fiction books. I enjoy being outdoors, doing anything active: snowboarding, motorcycle rides, dirt biking, hiking, any movement really. I also love traveling. My parents are from Peru, so I visit there often. I also speak Spanish - Tambien hablo español!
Therapy can help your understanding of where your emotions come from,
connecting the past to the present, and decreasing the intensity by making sense of it. In order for others to understand you, you have to understand yourself first.
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human
freedoms—to choose ones attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose ones own way.” -Viktor E Frankl 
My therapy style is warm and welcoming, but I won't shy away from challenging you towards health. I want you to heal, grow, and flourish. Therapy does not always have to be serious; I incorporate humor and add fun into sessions. I will explain the science of therapy using psychoeducation, and predict the process to set you up for success.

My goal for you is to heal the root, it won’t be easy but it will be worth it and I will guide you every step of the way. Some measurable factors that therapy is working: increased quality of sleep, blood pressure and pulse regulated, clear mind, decrease in nightmares, and if you have a medical condition then the symptoms may decrease (pain, headaches, skin rashes, constipation, infections, high blood pressure or heart rate, etc), increase in immune response, ability to relate and connect, decrease in defensive
responses.Your life changes the moment you feel solidified in who you are and how to manage stress. Let’s do this!

Supervised by Elizabeth Weiner, LMFT #109510

My name is Zabelle and I have a deep passion for helping people understand and utilize the power they have within themselves to become the architects of their own lives. I am an out-of-
the-box and forward thinker known for my warm, attuned, honest and grounding presence. I strike a delicate balance between providing loving support and challenging clients to step outside their comfort zones in order to achieve growth and lasting change. I believe that your healing process should be as unique as you are. I blend an intuitive and alternative approach with evidence-based practices like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma and Solution-
Focused therapies. I believe in the importance of integrating a somatic focus, addressing the body and nervous system as well as strengthening our intuitive wisdom.
As a multicultural individual, I deeply value and respect the diverse and unique cultural and racial experiences of my clients and foster an inclusive and secure environment for diverse populations.

As a sex-positive therapist, I promote an open atmosphere for discussing and exploring issues related to sexuality, identity, and relationships. Much of my work focuses on trauma, grief and loss, end-of-life support, elderly, professional and personal relationships,
codependency, expats, creatives, and postpartum identity and adjustment. I know this process can be intimidating but I’m here to guide you through it with honesty, humor, and a warm, supportive presence. Together, we will explore your goals and challenges,
identify your inner resources and develop strategies for growth with confidence and grace. I collaborate with teens, adults, couples and families. I am committed to ongoing professional development to ensure my clients receive the most effective and compassionate care possible. It would be my honor to work with you.
