M.A. in Marriage and Family
My approach to therapy is to create a safe and supportive environment where clients have an opportunity for their voice to be heard. My ultimate goal is for clients to thrive and lead balanced happy lives. I provide support and guidance to individuals and couples dealing with a variety of issues: anxiety, depression, loneliness, grief, "feeling stuck", and adjustment issues. Life brings on all types of stresses such as relationships, career, parenting, aging, and indentity. My work is based on the understanding that therapy can be invaluable in processing many of life's transitions and challenges, both large and seemingly small. Whether you are in crisis or simply need support and a place to talk, we will work together to realize the positive and lasting changes you seek.
Aurora Graham, LCSW #84399
M.A. in Social Work
I am a licensed clinical Social Worker and have been providing psychotherapy for the past 8 years. My focus is working with people who have a history of trauma, and those struggling with anxiety, mood disorders, chronic health conditions, and life transitions. My practice is identity affirming and I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds. I use components of CBT, seeking safety, EMDR, and mindfulness to help reduce distress and a harm reduction approach when addressing substance abuse, self injury, or other coping skills the person would like to change. I bring a compassionate person-centered approach to my work and am excited at the prospect of working with you!

Starting therapy is a courageous step toward feeling better; making the choice to become vulnerable in front of another person in order to receive help may be one of the hardest things you ever do. Right now, by looking for a therapist, you're showing the insight that you're worth more.
I believe that everyone is capable of feeling better. I believe that humor has a place in therapy. And I believe that people have great amounts of strength that can carry them through hardship, which constantly humbles and amazes me. I look forward to helping you access your resilience and determination.
I treat all clients as individuals and the experts of their own lives; together, we'll find a way for you to move through your difficulties, and I will be by your side all the way. My approach for teens and adults is supportive, creative, and focused on exploration. We'll identify goals, navigate your issues, and capitalize on your strengths.

I spent two years training at Southern California Counseling Center where I had the honor of working with an extraordinarily diverse group of clients. During my time at SCCC, I witnessed the impact that unique forms of trauma have had on many of my clients. As a result, I was inspired to pursue means of healing trauma. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and TRM 1 (Trauma Resiliency Model).
As a therapist, I work from a place of unconditional positive regard for my clients and I work to provide a non-judgmental space that feels safe enough to deeply explore your complex inner world. I think it’s important to examine the stories we tell ourselves, challenge some of our thoughts and learn to begin to treat ourselves with kindness.
