Alexandra Afanasyeva, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
I am culturally sensitive therapist with years of experience working with non-native speakers of different backgrounds. I believe that foundation of successful treatment is a connection between a client and therapist. To make the client-therapist relationship work smoothly, I strive to be caring, available, reachable, and consistent with services. I have degrees in psychology from both Russian and American Universities which help me to connect with you regardless of your level of acculturation and integration into a new society.
Through our work together you will get in touch with your emotions, feelings, and body sensations as well as thoughts and desires. Gradually you will attain a state of well-being through enhancing awareness, freedom and self -direction as well as mindfulness, positive thinking, meditation, and relaxation techniques.
I incorporate recent studies, concepts, and methodology in raising happy, healthy and successful children by teaching my clients to use nonviolent communication, peaceful parenting, positive discipline approaches. I believe that we all can learn to be skillful, strong and nurturing parents, regardless of the way we were raised.
