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 engage in a gentle, yet deep self study process to explore inner experiences. This might look like using sensations, images, memories, or emotional reactions to deepen into the levels of the psyche. 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 might feel tiring. Reaching out might even feel overwhelming. But I see you. Sitting right here. Hello! I'm guessing that part of you needs more calm, balance or just a little ease in your life. Welcome! You're already here. This part is hard and I'm proud of you for finding your way here.

If you're already on the road, now what? I'm here to walk you through it. The most meaningful things in life are always hard earned and involve other people. This rings true for therapy. When you take the leap together with a therapist you're investing in your confidence and well-being. Amazing things happen when take the leap and start the process. Typically, a positive domino effect occurs. Your relationships can become richer, you’ll manage daily stressors easier and you might show up with more confidence. So how do you make this happen?

We'll start with that little voice that guided you here that says 'things can be different'. We prioritize your experience in the present moment. I practice somatic therapy and experience-based therapies like art therapy. They are both gently and direct. They can cut right to the core of wants, needs and beliefs and quickly solidify through experiential learning. 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 excited to hear from you!
