About Mixed Emotions

Mixed Emotions is a Los Angeles based psychotherapy practice that specializes in couples therapy and trauma recovery from a systemic lens - meaning we take into account how family systems and social systems impact our clients. Our team is derived of deeply empathetic, intelligent clinicians who have specialized training in trauma recovery and relational approaches. We are dedicated to providing safe spaces of healing without judgment. We seek to help you find inward attunement, authentic expression, and effective relational tools. Additionally, our team views trauma recovery and relational work as a lifelong ebb and flow. We help you ride the waves of these ebbs and flows with more ease. This encourages a reduction of bothersome symptoms and relational conflict while promoting an increase of flexibility, inner peace, and relational satisfaction. 

At Mixed Emotions, we envision a world that embraces equity and works to decolonize therapeutic spaces. We strive to educate ourselves on marginalized life experience with cultural humility and embrace a highly individualized approach that takes into account the unique experience of every client we see. We see clients as experts in themselves. We understand that healing is best done in community and from a holistic approach. We believe that change needs to occur in our society's larger systems in order to provide grander healing for marginalized communities and vow to empower this change via advocacy and community action.
