Marriage and Family Therapist Interns

supervised by MARY KAY COCHARO, LMFT






An Integrated Approach

Jamie fosters connectivity, authenticity, and well-being in her work with individuals, couples, and adolescents. Jamie views each client as a dynamic and layered individual and tailors her integrative approach to their unique concerns. Deeply connecting with her clients, she creates a safe space in which to empower, explore, and discover the insights that lead to lasting change. She utilizes her wide scope of modalities and trainings in order to honor the multi-dimensional layers of her client’s intrapersonal and interpersonal lives. Jamie’s work with couples is heightened by her training in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy, as well as in the groundbreaking approach of Encounter-Centered Couples Therapy, which evolved from IMAGO Relationship Therapy.





Through Collaboration: Finding The Preferred Version of You!

Nikki works with couples, individuals and adolescents to find the best path to take for each of her clients within a safe encouraging environment. She encourages her clients to share their personalized stories in order to uncover their deepest hopes, dreams and truths, to which they can work towards. She approaches her clients with curiosity, great empathy and compassion, and works with them to uncover their strengths and move towards their preferred version of themselves. Nikki is a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator and integrates Encounter Centered Therapy, Imago Relational Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy, and The Gottman Method to approach her work with couples to foster deep connection, understanding and committed trust.





Through Connection comes Freedom

Kendra uses an integrative holistic approach in her work with couples, families and individuals by integrating relaxation and mindfulness techniques. She believes focusing on the mind, body and spirit is an essential part of the healing process and can open the door to acceptance and change. Drawing on her training in experiential and postmodern therapies, Kendra helps her clients become aware of how automatic patterns of behavior interfere with their ability to connect with loved ones. In addition to seeing clients in private practice, she continues to receive training in mindfulness meditation through the MARC Institute at UCLA.
