As a partner on your journey, I embrace an approach to helping you thrive in these unprecedented times. Whether you are 3 or 90 years old, I am confident that you can heal from all that currently troubles you. I am a certified clinical trauma professional and am dedicated to helping you recover from individual and collective trauma.

Dr. Shaffer is a licensed clinical psychologist in California with decades of experience in providing psychotherapy to culturally diverse clients and has worked in a great variety of settings with clients’ ages ranging from 3-90 years old. She is particularly interested in helping clients to build a sense of resiliency and confidence to establish and maintain a life worth living. In particular, healing modalities include the application of evidence-based interventions such as Francine Shapiro Institute’s Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), “FLASH” technique, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Biofeedback and somatic interventions (i.e. HeartMath), and more. In addition to being successful in applying these interventions that have been proven to work, Dr. Shaffer is skilled in connecting with her patients through the lens of each client’s unique worldview.
