I am licensed in California with 20 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients on a spectrum that ranges from mindfulness, anxiety disorders, depression, grief and loss, compassion fatigue, to crisis management, homelessness, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and overall coping with life changes. I am heart centered with a warm approach and make every effort to help my clients reconnect with what matters most to them in their lives. I have experience with working with clients that ranges on a spectrum from individuals, couples, domestic violence, children, teenagers, veterans, military families on deployment, older adults, LGBTqia, and groups. I am open minded, have good values, and I am well versed in theology and spirituality. I have an understanding of the struggles of immigrants, and a deep respect for the need for multicultural and ethnic integration into our society. I believe in treating everyone with dignity, sensitivity, and compassion. I have traveled and lived in multiple countries. I have survived a war and know how to thrive and overcome trauma through Meditation and Mindfulness. I am trained in Mindfulness, Meditation, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have also found that reading and skill building homework can be very powerful resources to add to therapy. I am the author and illustrator of the book “Being With Heart: How to Thrive in Life With A Tender Heart.” I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. Thank you for reaching out to me.

Pascale was exceptionally insightful. She helped me through a period of acute depression and gave me the support I needed to get into a more positive and balanced emotional space. I felt the benefit of her wealth of knowledge and experience, but also appreciated that she brought her own humor and personality to our conversations.
