Rebecca Bruno is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Pasadena, CA. Rebecca supports both individuals and couples as they cope with anxiety, depression, grief, complex trauma, and general feelings of being emotionally overwhelmed. They are passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ community, including those who are gender diverse. They also enjoy working with artists and other therapists who want to benefit from what therapy has to offer.
Rebecca’s therapy approach draws from Jungian psychology and somatic therapy perspectives. Clients develop a deeper understanding of their unconscious, which can give them insight into their distress. Rebecca sees each person’s unconscious, including their beliefs and instinctive behaviors, as innate wisdom that can be leveraged for healing. Rebecca incorporates activities in their sessions such as active imagination work, somatic tracking, dream tending, and grounding tools. Clients leave therapy with a holistic understanding of their mental health and wellbeing, feeling heard and seen for who they genuinely are.
Rebecca earned a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute where they serve as a Thesis Advisor and Teaching Assistant. Their style is warm, compassionate, and based in curiosity. They completed a four year training program in trauma-informed, depth, and analytic care. They are also involved in eco-activism and enjoy collaborating with others through art.
