Rebecca Macias, M.S. is a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist practicing under my supervision. She graduated from San Diego State University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and hold a master’s in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from San Francisco State University.

While attending graduate school, she discovered her interest in the way culture impacts individuals, specifically in the therapeutic setting. She spent time providing psychotherapy to disadvantaged communities in Quito, Ecuador and learned more about the ways culture informs clients' belief systems. She also provided psycho-education to medical staff in community clinics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After her work abroad, she completed her training and practicum at Ohlhoff Recovery Center in San Francisco, CA, where she provided group and individual therapy to individuals struggling with substance abuse and a range of other mental health diagnoses.

After moving to Los Angeles, she worked as a Mental Health Specialist at St. Joseph’s Center in Venice, California helping the homeless population access services for mental health, substance abuse treatment, and housing options. She spent  nearly two years working as a Primary Therapist for KLEAN Treatment Centers, providing individual and group therapy.

Rebecca incorporates mindfulness into her work with clients recovering from substance abuse, past trauma, and other mental health issues. Rebecca is trained in the Trauma Resiliency Model and Brainspotting. She believes that individuals have the power to heal their minds and bodies through exploring their experiences  with a mindfully attuned therapist. Her own mindfulness practice  influences her work.
