Counselors in Residence
I work with individuals, couples, and groups who are wanting to form a greater understanding of themselves, their relationships, and their communities. I understand that healing and growth looks different for each individual and hope to provide the support necessary for your mind, body, and soul.
I strive to provide a safe, comfortable, and productive environment for my clients so that we may explore together the past, present, and future.
My approach to therapy is rooted in curiosity, incorporating embodiment, mindfulness, humor, and collaboration.
My specialities include: Sex/Sexuality, Intimacy, Relationships, Chronic Pain/Chronic Illness, Anxiety, Life Transitions
I specialize in couples work, sexual issues, trauma, and in Brainspotting where I am working towards certification. I have a collaborative approach with a body-centered awareness to our work in the therapeutic room. Couples work is done with a goal of helping you both to better attend to each other’s needs. As a Filipino-American, I celebrate the intersectionality that I myself experience. Immigrants can live with a multiplicity of diversity issues. I am interested and have first hand knowledge in helping the LGBT community, especially those coming out of the Church, the closet, and reparative therapy.
Keri Anderson, ASW
I credit my upbringing for propelling me into a world of social justice and psychotherapy. As a South Los Angeles native with an extensive background in community organizing, my personal and professional experiences have led me to using my gifts of non-judgment and empathy to address the social determinants of trauma, physical illness, anxiety, and depression. For these reasons, my focus areas are People of Color, Intergenerational Trauma, Chronic Illness, and Community Organizing.
My approach to therapy is rooted in curiosity and non-judgment, incorporating embodiment, mindfulness, and humor. In our work together, we will explore what an experience of wholeness and embodiment feels and looks like for you, collaboratively strengthening the muscles of self-soothing and self-accountability. Our work will also bring particular awareness to reconnecting the mind to the messages of the body and to the rhythms of nature. I have particular experience working with compulsive behaviors, life transitions, relationship to food, body image, spiritual exploration, and the Highly Sensitive (HSP). For couples, we will address challenges collaboratively, establishing effective tools and skills to communicate boundaries and needs, and deepen intimacy.
Jennifer Vazquez, AMFT
Hola! I am a bilingual therapist, I offer services in English and Spanish. I identify as a Chicana/Latina woman and I specialize in working with Latinx women. My intention is to be here for you and with you in the process of working with anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem, trauma, and relationships. I work from a holistic approach and believe that what happens in our body is just as important as what happens in our mind. I enjoy incorporating mindfulness techniques and breath work into the therapy room to help bring insight and self-awareness. My main focus is to create a space where you can be yourself and work collaboratively on your needs, strengths and goals.

Collaborative, transparent, embodied therapy focusing on supporting struggles related to shame, LGBTQIA identities and relationships, trauma (sexual, cultural, intergenerational), reproduction (infertility, abortion, miscarriage, adoption, etc.), and climate-related anxiety and grief. I love working with activists, artists, and teens.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” — Mary Oliver
Life: loss, grief, family, relationships, LGBTQ, and the challenges of being a working artist. I can help you do you, authentically and with — let’s dare to say it — joy.
