Professional statement

Angelynn is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Los Angeles and online for residents of California. She provides individual and group therapy, and therapy for families and relationship partners. A social worker by training, Angelynn’s approach to therapy is founded on a recognition of the importance of relationships, those we have to ourselves, to significant and important others, and to the wider communities in which we live; so many of the struggles people experience are connected to ruptures in relationships and how we try to cope with those ruptures.

Angelynn is especially gifted in holding space for people to feel and process challenging or painful emotions, heal from traumatic experiences, and strengthen their natural capacity to form meaningful and rewarding relationships. Angelynn draws from her background in relational, feminist, and depth-oriented psychotherapies, as well as from training in EMDR, skills and behavioral-focused therapy and DBT, and trauma-informed mind-body tools. Each person’s needs in therapy are unique, and Angelynn seeks to create a collaborative and respectful relationship to support each person’s process.

With almost a decade of experience in anti-violence organizing and survivor advocacy, Angelynn provides a depth and breadth of knowledge and experience in supporting trauma recovery and building resilience for those affected by interpersonal & community violence, grief and loss, vicarious & medical trauma, acute or single-incident traumatic events, and chronic stress. Angelynn reserves some space in her practice to support the wellness and healing of LBGTQ people, sex workers, and care workers. As a clinical social worker in hospital, residential, and outpatient community mental health settings, Angelynn has worked with individuals and families navigating a range of mental health challenges including substance use, depression, anxiety, OCD, personality disorders, and grief and loss.

Angelynn provides online therapy only, via secure video platforms or phone.


Message to clients

Those who come to me for therapy are seeking to go deep, to process and heal past hurts, and to cultivate more meaningful and rewarding connections and relationships in their lives. Many of the people I see are navigating expansive and challenging experiences of intimacy, relationships, trauma, grief, sexuality, and gender, or struggles with mental wellness that have either arisen suddenly or been present for many years.

In therapy I seek to build a relationship that allows you to process and understand vulnerable parts of yourself and deeply felt emotions while we also look together for ways to shift patterns and behaviors in order to build the life and relationships you long for. For those looking to process parts of yourself and past experience that you may have turned away from exploring in the past, I am ready to go there with you, providing support in navigating challenging emotions and circumstances to find your inner resilience and most authentic expression of yourself.
