Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #155135


Anastasia is specializing in couples counseling and sex therapy, and uses methods shown to be effective with helping couples successfully navigate or resolve infidelity, mental illness, and addiction.  She enjoys guiding couples from their struggles to a life with deeper understanding and love for one another.  Anastasia believes that when couples are able to find solutions and are more readily open to envisioning new ways of connecting they are able to see issues from various perspectives.  It is her ambition and training that uniquely helps couples improve their communication skills and strengthen their bond.

Anastasia earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy in 2015 and expects to graduate with a Doctorate in Psychology for Marriage and Family Therapy in 2019.  In addition to advanced education and providing clinical service since 2014, she offers clients a rounded perspective through her past direct experience working with children and adolescence while training at the Family Services at Burbank and the WhyTry/WhyLead program for young adults transitioning out of foster homes and certification as a coach in Mastering the Mysteries of Love.  As your couples counselor or individual counselor, she looks forward to using her experience and training of more than five years to help you live the life you envision.

People have always told me, “You are so comfortable to talk to, I can tell you things I would never tell anyone!” I have dreamt about being a therapist since I was four years old and my entire career has been devoted to assisting others in their growth, both personally and professionally.
In mid-life, I chose to pursue my dream of becoming a therapist.  I believe the client-therapist relationship is a special bond that honors and values your story.  When we work together,  my supportive, non-judgmental perspective will help us collaboratively explore your personal needs so you may achieve your goals.  I work within different modalities to assist me in our work, leaning towards experiential therapy, CBT, art therapy, mindfulness, and Jung dream analysis.
Known for my sensitivity, care, and calm demeanor I enjoy individual and couples counseling and sex therapy.
I will be graduating with a Masters of Arts in Marital & Family Therapy in 2019, and am currently completing certification with The Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH) on Advanced Training in Problematic Sexual Behaviors.  My clients are individuals and couples working through relationship and sexual issues (including ED and sex addiction), and mental health topics, such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, infidelity, trauma, communication, and conflict resolution.  Being married for 33 years, I draw upon my own personal and professional experience working with those who identify as LGBTQ, Polyamory, BDSM, swingers, and fetishists, as well as other topics of interest to you.
I look forward to working with you. 
Feel free to call me for a free 30 minute consultation or schedule an appointment below.



Associate Marriage and Family Therapist # 92571

You and your partner are my primary focus because life can be pretty challenging sometimes, and we all need someone who can listen without judgment.  I like working with all couples and those who want their relationship to be happy and healthier.  If you also know the challenges of adversity and diversity, especially if you or your partner are trying to navigate disabilities, and chronic pain or illness, then you how important it is to work with someone who will think before speaking and who has the ability to validate and even empathize with you.  I happily work with the LGBT community and have additional training in child and adult transgender issues. I also have experience working with issues related to bullying and its after effects, and have worked couples, families and individuals since 2013.

Helping you and your partner be in a healthier and happier place is my primary focus.  Improving your connection with your partner and loved ones is my goal.

Working with an array of clients has required my training and perspectives to be informed and aligned with a variety of theory and practice.  I also call upon my personal experience with adversity and disability.  I don’t believe that any one theory or practice fits all clients, nor do I believe that your experience is the same as mine.  In fact, I look for differences and try to tailor interventions to meet your specific needs based on training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Level 1 & 2; in addition, I like experiential therapy (like art and play therapy), Emotionally Focused Therapy, Narrative, Logo therapy, Solution-Focused, attachment theory.  Of all, I really find a lot of value in mindfulness and meditation.  If you would like to know more about me as a couples’ counselor or would like to schedule an appointment, please call and ask for me.

I believe that our relationships influence our overall sense of well-being.  Helping clients repair, create, or sustain supportive relationships is the focus of my work.  Whether working on current issues or wounds of the past, I want couples and individuals who have come to feel disconnected in their intimate relationships to become more in control of their destinies as well as to have deeper, more satisfying relationships.  My use of CBT, DBT, Psychodynamic and Mindfulness techniques aims to help clients who struggle with anger, depression, or anxiety become more aware of and safely experience their thoughts and feelings. I also work to help clients learn assertive communication and healthy boundaries so they feel more empowered and know that they are “good enough.”  As an individual and couples’ counselor, I draw from my academic training as well as my own experiences in learning how to manage the ups and downs of life and the difficulties inherent in personal connections.  I look forward to helping clients in their quest to heal and have the healthy relationships they desire. I look forward to working with you.
