Jennifer Mitchell, MA ~ Associate Marriage & Family Therapist
She/Her/Hers. I received my master's degree in counseling psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, with a focus in transpersonal, existential, and Gestalt psychologies. I have done training in EMDR, as well as extensive training in parenting/attachment theory. I have worked with adults and teens in psychiatric hospitals, residential treatment facilities, high schools and community counseling agencies. I have had a life-long interest in doing overseas relief work. I specialize in helping clients to discover and love their authentic selves, women's issues, depression, anxiety, trauma and spirituality.
Rachel Gardner, Psy.D. ~ Psychological Assistant
She/Her/Hers. My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, engaged, and holistic. In my work with clients, I bring curiosity, kindness, commitment, humor, an open heart and mind, and a deep guiding belief in our innate human capacity for healing and growth. My experience has taught me that the therapy relationship can facilitate deep transformation as well as support people in their quests to navigate life transitions, gain skills and self-acceptance, and meet a wide range of life goals.
I have extensive experience working with the LGBTQ community; and with people living with HIV, cancer, and life-threatening illnesses; complex grief and trauma; internalized oppression, and the challenges of relationships, depression and anxiety, aging and life transitions, and daily and existential stresses. My training in depth and imaginal psychology, somatics, conflict resolution, psychoneuroimmunology, and ecopsychology informs and supports my work, as does my own mindfulness meditation practice and time in the natural world.
A native New Yorker, I am a longtime resident of Sonoma County. I received my BA from Sonoma State University and my Master and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology from Meridian University.
