Professional statement

Dr. Willow Pearson Trimbach, PsyD, LMFT, MT-BC is a clinical psychologist, marriage and family therapist, and board-certified music therapist, practicing online with clients who live in California. She specializes in Integral Relational Psychotherapy, which centers on our interwoven relationships with self, others, and the world.

Dr. Pearson Trimbach sees adults in her depth-oriented practice. As a professor of clinical psychology for over two decades, who trains graduate students to be therapists, she specializes in psychotherapy for mental health professionals and other social artists, creative artists, and cultural creatives. Existential, spiritual, relational, entrepreneurial, and creative domains are first nature to Dr. Pearson Trimbach.

Her life as a musician and songwriter, as well as a music therapist, informs her integrative, empathic, psychodynamic, transpersonal work with patients as much as her decades of experience working in community mental health clinics and hospitals. Her life on the meditation cushion, on the yoga mat, on stage, in the studio, in the classroom, and in marriage all provide a rich background to and context for her dynamic presence in online psychotherapy sessions.

Message to clients

A strength I bring to my work with clients is the capacity for deep listening to your highest self and your most vulnerable self at once. A complementary strength I bring to my work with clients is the capacity for holding your past, present and future selves with a kaleidoscopic vision that notices and is also curious to know more about how those selves are linked. Your strengths are as important to me as your challenges, and I wish to learn about both. Your darkness and your light are welcome in my consulting room, and each aspect has a place in being fully human. The feedback I receive from clients is that I bring uncommon compassion and wisdom to our collaborative work together.

I look forward to receiving your message, to schedule a 15-20 minute phone call to see if it would make sense to set up an initial session, in order to then see if we might be a good match to work together. Thanks for taking the risk to reach out.
