Hello.
I'm Ashleigh Sorenson, LMFT #88863
Founder and Director

My approach to healing is always based on trust and the therapeutic relationship. I offer genuine compassion, curiosity, and care. I am trained in depth-oriented and trauma-aware approaches to therapy and trauma recovery, such as attachment, inner-child work, Jungian analytic psychology, feminist approaches, dream work, and somatic therapy. My professional and personal experiences have taught me that when the soul demands change, the journey can be both scary and satisfying. I'd be honored to help you learn to listen to your inner knowing!

I graduated from Vanguard University of Southern California with a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, have been practicing psychotherapy since 2010, and became a licensed psychotherapist in 2015. I specialize in working with young adults who have survived or are living with various traumas, anxiety, depression, identity struggles, and life transitions. I enjoy working inclusively with people from all walks of life and offer various forms of treatment to best fit each client. Aside from traditional talk therapy, I also utilize Somatic Experiencing therapy and Sandplay therapy for folks who are interested.

I am a huge advocate for trauma recovery and healing and am grateful to be able to pair my passion with a career. Aside from being a therapist, I enjoy traveling, camping, cooking, reading, music, photography, spending time with loved ones, and being a life-long learner!

Hello.
I'm Jamie Weir, AMFT #94443
Pre-licensed Clinician

Supervised by Ashleigh Sorenson, LMFT #88863

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from California State University, Fullerton and have been providing psychotherapy services since 2013. I help teens, adults, and older adults overcome challenges brought on by experiences of trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship and family conflicts, gender and sexual identity, as well as grief and loss.

My clients are individuals, couples, and families. My hope is to form a safe and trusting therapeutic connection to uncover underlying issues and cultivate inner strengths with my clients. I help my clients to become more self-aware and accepting as these are important components in the healing process.
