About me

My name is Sylvia Fernandez Chamberlain. I have been a licensed Marriage, Family Therapist for the past 30 years. I have a B.A. in Theatre Arts from Humboldt State University. I graduated in 1982. I majored in dance and Native American Studies. I have a Master’s Degree from Antioch University in Clinical Psychology. I graduated in 1989. I supervised Graduate Trainees to be licensed as Marriage, Family Therapist through Antioch University from October 2020-December 2021
For years I struggled with my own early childhood trauma. After years of movement and studies in Native American Philosophy and Culture that addressed my personal identification, I felt more in control of my personal traumas. I was able to heal myself through movement and years of yoga meditation. All of which led me to believe that I could benefit others in their journey to heal.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Theory, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness, Trauma-Focused Therapy and Attachment Therapy to assist clients in recognizing their challenges and healing their hurt and pain. I am hopeful that I may do the same for you. I check my messages several times a day and will respond to your request within 24 hours.

Sylvia has helped me manage my anxiety and deal with my depression using a variety of techniques. She has also helped me to navigate my relationship with my partner during a very challenging time. We have not been meeting for very long, but I am grateful for her guidance and support which has already improved my life in so many ways.

Sylvia is the absolute best! She remembers even the smallest details about previous sessions, which shows that she really listens and cares about her patients. She is very insightful and knowledgeable. She is also very intuitive and can sense how you are feeling, even through a video call. She is very prompt at replying through the chat feature. She is so talented at what she does and anyone would be lucky to be one of her patients!
