Professional statement

Felicia Lepetri is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Los Angeles, CA. She has worked in many health care settings and has worked in the field of grief and loss for over 12 years. Grief can often feel isolating, overwhelming, and painful, which is why seeking out support can be beneficial to you or someone you know that is struggling with loss.

Life transitions and change often bring up feelings of uncertainty and worry. Although, these transitions are often expected or even decided by us, it can cause an overwhelming sense of doubt and sometimes feelings of grief. Felicia's goal is to support you through these changes and losses and begin to understand your experience with grief, making meaning of your losses and explore ways to help you feel connected and seen. Felicia also specializes in supporting clients who are experiencing challenges with life transitions, like motherhood, coming in or out of a relationship, or navigating challenges within your partnership. She also has expertise with cancer and chronic illness and working with LGBTQ+ adolescents and adults.

Grief and life transitions are often manifested in different ways, which is why Felicia utilizes a combination of modalities, from Trauma Informed Care, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Attachment-Based therapy. Felicia's priority is to create a safe and comforting environment for your healing. So, if you have recently experienced change or loss, anticipating loss, or have a history of loss, please contact Felicia for a free consultation.


Message to clients

My number one priority is to ensure we are a good fit for therapy and I always offer a free consultation call to assess your needs and for you to understand my services and approach. You should feel safe, comfortable and have a connection with your therapist. Building rapport is essential to the therapeutic relationship.

I want to be a collaborator in your therapeutic process, so working together on goals, understanding where you want to be and what you'd like to change is an important step in order for us to start making progress.
