My Approach to Helping
Hello! My name is Whitney McGillicuddy. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California with 8 years of experience partnering with adolescents, families, adults, and couples who are facing mental health struggles relating to life stress, trauma, grief, addiction, and spiritual issues. I completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Wheaton College, IL, and a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy at Fuller in Pasadena, California. I have specialized training in couples treatment as a Level II Certified practitioner in Restoration Therapy.
I am passionate about helping others develop self-awareness through frameworks like attachment theory, psychodynamic theory, and cognitive behavioral theory. My approach utilizes prioritizing practical steps to get relief including mindfulness based stress reduction.
Working together, you can expect to experience genuine compassion, connection, and collaboration (and probably a few laughs) along the way to building a life you’re proud of and relationships that are thriving.
