Professional statement

Chauney Peck is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Art Therapist located in Los Angeles. Chauney partners with individuals to help them move forward after trauma. Many of her clients’ trauma manifests into physical pain, restlessness, and sleep or eating disruptions. She also supports clients whose depression and anxiety get in the way of their everyday living and relationships. Her goal is to help clients grow their self-esteem and feel empowered to take a mind-body approach to their healing.

Chauney is a somatic therapist, which means that she teaches clients how to calm down their nervous systems, which tend to get stuck in the fight-or-flight patterns experienced during trauma. She helps clients identify how their bodies hold onto their stress or mental health challenges, and find ways to become grounded within the body. Through Hakomi therapy, Chauney teaches clients how to use a relaxed and mindful awareness to explore their trauma. This might look like using sensations, images, or memories to gauge physical and emotional reactions. Chauney also offers clients the opportunity to explore their emotions and beliefs through art therapy, using different mediums to tap into the mind.

Chauney’s style is warm, patient, and gentle. She encourages clients to become more mindful in their everyday lives, and gives them tangible tools to develop their sense of awareness. She supports clients as they learn more about their minds and their bodies, and as they begin to journey away from their trauma, anxiety, or depression.

Message to clients

Scrolling these pages can feel lonely. The notion of reaching out to someone might even feel impossible. But I see you right here. I see that part of you that wants more aliveness, fulfillment and ease. And here is a path. This is the paradox, your so close but feel so far. Starting therapy is a leap- of time, money, commitment, to be sure.

When you take that leap you invest in your courage and confidence. Honestly this is the harder path. But amazing things happen when take the leap. You will start a positive domino effect. Your relationships will become richer, you’ll navigate tour ups and downs and more confidence will carryover to your work.

Somatic therapy is unique, direct and cuts right to the core. If you’re curious about how I can help you take the leap to more ease, gentleness and connection, please reach out for a free consultation. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
