Associates 

Mona supervises various associates in her private practice as they work toward licensure. If you're interested in working with one of her associates for ongoing therapy, please inquire with her or contact her associate directly using their website links below. Regarding supervision provided, each associate receives 1-2 hours of weekly supervision from Mona regarding their direct practice with clients. Associates are also able to provide sliding scale services to clients with financial limitations.

Mae McAleavy, Associate Clinical Social Worker ACSW 102980

Mae believes 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, Mae offers acceptance, deep listening, and curiosity. She works 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.

 

Mae earned her BA at University of Southern California, and her MSW at California State University Northridge. Prior to private practice, she 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, Mae's work integrates insights from mindful self-compassion, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Gestalt, Hakomi, and Neuro-Affective Relational Modeling. She is trained in EMDR for the treatment of trauma, and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) for treatment resistant depression and PTSD. Her work is grounded in the research on the neurobiological basis of trauma and healing, and in attachment theory.
