I specialize in working with young adults with trauma and PTSD, anxiety, depression, dissociation, and depersonalization/derealization. I also work with adolescents and children facing life transitions, self-esteem issues, and emotional regulation.
My practice is dedicated to helping those who seek a compassionate and nurturing space. My approach is rooted in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and person-centered frameworks. Although my work is based in these approaches, I work collaboratively with each client to tailor therapy to best help attain their goals.My experience working with a range of different levels of care including residential treatment centers, intensive outpatient programs, and community mental health has given me the ability to gain skills and resources in varying therapeutic interventions, including but not limited to trauma-informed care and dialectical behavior therapy.
My educational background includes a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with and Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University.My therapeutic style can best be described as warm, compassionate, and empathic. I believe it is important to find a therapist who is the right fit for you which is why I offer a 20 minute complimentary consultation.
I offer daytime, evening, and weekend hours. I look forward to discussing your goals for therapy and ways to create a meaningful and fulfilled life.I am now accepting new clients.

I work with adults, teenagers, and children who struggle with PTSD, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and bereavement. I utilize talk therapy, expressive therapy, play therapy, and specific treatments like EMDR and TRM to offer comprehensive care in order to explore problems on a deeper level. I use attachment theory as my therapeutic orientation to help clients better understand how early childhood relationships, as well as current friendships and other significant relationships, can affect all aspects of one’s life and how one may navigate through the world.
I received my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy from Pepperdine University, and I am currently enrolled as a doctoral student at Alliant International University and hope to receive my PsyD in 2022. I am currently receiving training for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and am trained in the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM). I have taken and continue to take various workshops in play therapy techniques and different types of family therapy.
I am accepting new clients and have a wide range of availability during the week. If you would like to have a free 20 minute consultation, feel free to reach out to me at (818)422-7691 or email me at Rachel@marinaedelman.com
