Mallory Mitchell, LMFT (#LMFT85706)
Eastern thought teaches us that pain is inevitable, suffering is optional; life and relationships have the ability to create struggles in everyday life that create pain, but it is through our attitudes and behaviors that we can create meaning in everyday experiences. My passion is for people and their relationships. I have a deep interest in helping people achieve their potential and it is my goal to empower individuals as they search for connection, intimacy, love, and success.
My name is Mallory and I am a State of California Board of Behavioral Sciences, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a decade of experience working in mental health. My clinical experience includes inpatient, outpatient and private practice work with individuals, couples and families in both private and public settings. My unique experience with various populations influenced my approach and ability to create a comforting and therapeutic environment for individuals as they navigate various life challenges. In therapy, I focus on increasing mindfulness of current situations and emotional experiences to help my clients meet their goals and created more meaningful interactions.
While completing a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at Alliant International University, I focused on treating Substance Abuse as well as Couples Counseling. My approach is eclectic, combining Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Family Systems, and Narrative Therapy with my training in EMDR. I believe in treating individuals and couples through focusing on emotions and the role of attaching to others. I believe it is through this focus on emotions and attachment that significant and long-lasting change develops.
By helping people find the tools to cultivate their unique skills, I believe we can find hope and fulfillment to overcome the struggles of everyday life. It would be my honor to be a part of your personal journey as we navigate life together.
