Anna McDonald, MA
Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #84980
Have you experienced abuse or violence? Are you struggling with the aftermath these traumatic events are having on your life? Let me help you learn how to cope with your symptoms, create more stability and structure in your life, and move from surviving to thriving.
I specialize in working with survivors of trauma, abuse, and violence, and have experience helping people who have survived these circumstances with rebuilding their lives. This often includes working through post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, panic attacks, depression, insomnia, anger, and other related issues.
I strive to work in a manner that reflects awareness of the intersections of identity that influence a client's life, using a culturally sensitive lens. I am passionate about working with non-monogamous/polyamorous, kinky/BDSM, and LGBT/queer communities. I am familiar with these communities and their unique issues.
I am a trained expressive arts therapist, using creativity and artistic activities in the therapeutic process, including somatic and movement-based practices. I obtained my Master's in Counseling Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies, and have trained at the Tamalpa Institute. I integrate humor and playfulness with professional knowledge in my psychotherapy practice. I work in a collaborative, relational manner, draw from social justice and feminist perspectives, incorporating restorative justice, narrative therapy, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and emotionally focused therapy (EFT).
Adults, adolescents, and couples/folks in any relationship structure are welcomed into my non-judgmental, open-minded private practice. Call or email me now to schedule your free phone consultation, and start on a new path.
