A Little About Me
Hi! My name is Corinne (kuh-rin) (she/her)
I am a licensed therapist in Los Angeles here to help you move from being lost, confused, overwhelmed, and stuck to a place of purpose, strength, calmness, and joy. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, lack of self-worth, or self-doubt, you are in the right place.
I help people to uncover the root causes of their issues and help them find a way out. It can be difficult, but it will eventually lead to that heavyweight feeling coming off your chest, allowing you to breathe easily for the first time in a long time. For those who feel like they have been holding their breath, therapy can help you finally experience deep healing breaths, starting with a large sigh of relief.
If you are ready to put in the work, you will be surprised by how much positive change therapy can make in your life. It not only has the ability to create more happiness in your life, but it can improve relationships and your ability to be more successful in your career.
You have been struggling for too long and have not found relief.
You need an expert who truly knows what it takes to help you find relief and get back on track with your life and career. I am ready to help!
My Approach To Therapy
As a therapist, I am actively participate in the therapy conversation, providing feedback, teaching skills, and helping to work through problems or unhealthy patterns. I teach coping strategies and boundary setting and help clients build stronger and healthier relationships with themself. I like to do deep foundational work that will not only help you find more happiness in your life but can significantly affect relationships, your career, and how you feel about yourself and how you fit in the world.
In therapy with me, you will feel supported and safe while also challenged in ways that will help you grow. Healing can include feeling difficult emotions and memories. I provide the calm, compassionate, and grounding force to help you weather the storm and the light in the darkness to find your way out. Therapy can sometimes be difficult emotionally, but it can also be a place to laugh, be silly, and explore life in humorous ways. I am always ready to talk extensively about the most challenging topics, but I am also ready to engage in the healing that laughter plays.
Inclusive, Affirming, and Informed Therapy
I am a body-positive, sex-positive, LGBTQIA+ affirmative, consensual non-monogamy-friendly, and kink-informed therapist. Our relationship with our body and our sexuality is an integral part of the human experience. I enjoy helping people develop healthier relationships with themselves and their sexuality and have more satisfying relationships with others. I welcome all clients regardless of their sexual orientations, preferences, practices, identities, and relationship styles.
I continually work at being a culturally sensitive counselor, respecting the beliefs, perspectives, and values of my clients that are different than my own. I am always trying to do the internal work in continually assessing my own bias and assumptions and educating myself on cultural and identity issues, so I can help my clients in a way that supports their values and beliefs. I do my best to consider all aspects of my client's background, beliefs, values, and worldviews when selecting treatment approaches.
Theories and Techniques
Research shows that the therapeutic relationship (how connected you feel with your therapist) is one of the strongest predictors of successful treatment, but for those who are curious about what theories I use in therapy:
- Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT)
- Holistic Therapy
- Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
- Attachment Theory
- Motivational Interviewing
- Humanistic/Person Centered
- Existential Theory
Each client is unique; therefore, I tailor my approach to use the most effective strategies that will best meet each client’s individual needs, strengths, and therapy goals. I also continue to assess the progress of the treatment and vary my approach based on client feedback and outcomes. If clients are interested, I like to incorporate mindfulness, medication, relaxation exercises, and other coping techniques in treatment.
