Registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist at Magpie Life Psychotherapy

Hi, my name is Carissa. I am passionate about empowering clients to be their best selves and to thrive. I enjoy collaborating with clients to facilitate strength-based discussions where clients can build insight and develop skills that enable them to grow, challenge their maladaptive thoughts, and create their preferred story. I am looking forward to learning more about you and the experiences that have shaped who you are today. As an African American therapist my therapeutic approach is based on authenticity and a cultural lens to develop meaningful connections with clients. I use various theoretical approaches including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, , Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative therapy. I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist as well as a Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor working under the supervision of a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I have provided individual, couples, and group therapy to under-represented populations within Los Angeles County since 2019. I graduated with my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy from Pepperdine University in September 2020. I love to dance and I enjoy playing video games with my family!
