Maranda is a postmodern psychotherapist located in Los Angeles, CA who utilizes a truly holistic approach to embodied mental
health and wellness.
background & approach:
I am uniquely positioned in the mental health field because of my background in movement, art, and fitness. I have a handful of wellness certifications including: holistic health counseling as well as yoga and meditation. I bring this up because I can't help BUT think of us as a whole entity (whole-istic / holistic). It doesn't mean we'll be practicing yoga together in session or anything like that, but it does mean I'm going to be considering you from an emotional, biological, and spiritual stance. I consider my approach grounded and practical while also deeply philosophical, creative, and playful. (Yes, you absolutely can laugh in therapy!) Expect me to be deeply curious, open minded, and non-judgmental while also honoring WHO you are, WHERE you are, WHAT you are expressing you'd like to look at or work on, and finally HOW to safely, and effectively, begin to move you in that direction. The modalities (or approaches) I most frequently draw from are: existential, psychodynamic, transpersonal, narrative, and mindfulness-based.
Outside of health and wellness I am passionate about art, music, and social justice.
