Professional statement

Dr. Liza Auciello loves being a psychologist, and having the opportunity to connect and collaborate with individuals who want to make changes in their lives. She specializes in helping people to break patterns that no longer serve them and to develop new patterns that lead to satisfaction.

Dr. Auciello often says “what you believe about yourself is untrue.” Growing up, we pick up beliefs about ourselves that are often negative and impact the way we navigate the world and who we are with others. Dr. Auciello helps people to understand what drives their behavior and emotions. Her clients develop effective communication patterns, an increased ability to tolerate stress, healthy emotional expression and a deeper connection with their body, mind and others.

Dr. Auciello is well-versed in neuroscience and trauma. Her approach is holistic and tailored to your needs. She mainly uses somatic interventions, EMDR, positive psychology and cognitive-behavioral methods. If you work with Dr. Auciello, you can expect change and fulfillment.

Having been an executive in the business world, Dr. Auciello understands the pressure, stress and skill development that goes along with career growth. Her work in the mental health field has also made her quite skilled at preventing burnout and vicarious trauma.

Dr. Auciello provides virtual therapy through video conferencing in California and in-person sessions at a ranch in Malibu. The ranch provides a natural setting for therapy as well as equine facilitated growth experiences. Dr. Auciello also provides concierge therapy services, in the Calabasas and surrounding areas, for those who need a higher level of flexibility and privacy.

Dr. Auciello received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology. She is a licensed clinical psychologist and a certified mindfulness instructor. She also studied Qigong, Yoga, Reiki and many paths of meditation.

Message to clients

Are you living the life you want? Do your habitual patterns get in the way of you being present in life and relationships? I’ve dedicated my life to helping people find more fulfillment and meaning in their connections with others and in life itself. If you need a life reboot, I can help you to identify the hidden commitments you have with yourself and to overcome the blocks that get in the way of you achieving your life priorities. Our work together can help you to heal and nurture your relationship with your body, mind and spirit so you can address challenges more easily and live your life with greater self-confidence and self-love.

The foundation of my work is based in neuroscience. The methods you’ll learn will enable you to develop emotional agility, and to build a body and mind that supports the positive changes you want to see in your life. One of the many effective approaches I use, EMDR, can help you to process trauma, and to shift core negative beliefs you have about yourself to more positive and accurate beliefs. EMDR activates your brain’s ability to resolve deep wounds that negatively impact your relationships, life success and engagement with the world.

Therapy is one of many paths toward healing and personal growth. If you choose this path, I would be honored to guide you on your journey.
