Mae McAleavy, Associate Clinical Social Worker, ACSW 102980
I believe each of us carries an inner healing intelligence, and that healing and growth are possible no matter what experiences have brought you to this moment. Providing a warm and compassionate space for clients to develop wellbeing, I offer acceptance, deep listening, and curiosity. I work with individuals who deal with a range of concerns and diagnoses, including depression, anxiety, traumatic experiences (sexual abuse, PTSD, war trauma), relationship challenges, and chronic illness.
I earned my BA at University of Southern California, and my MSW at California State University Northridge. Prior to private practice I worked at the Department of Veterans Affairs providing individual and group psychotherapy to Veterans.
Utilizing holistic approaches to help you create the changes you seek, my work integrates insights from mindful self-compassion, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Gestalt, Hakomi, and Neuro-Affective Relational Modeling. I am trained in EMDR for the treatment of trauma, and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) for treatment resistant depression and PTSD. My work is grounded in the research on the neurobiological basis of trauma and healing, and in attachment theory.
