Andrea Mikonowicz, MFT
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (MFC #52248) specializing in trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction and recovery, and helping clients develop corrective emotional relationships and healthy attachments.
I apply innovative techniques such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and I am certified in the Trauma Resiliency Model which may be used in treating depression and anxiety. In addition, I draw from many evidenced-based treatments such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Theraplay, and I employ a diverse body of proven interventions to achieve treatment goals.
At Pacifica Graduate Institute, I gained a creative depth psychology base while studying many cutting-edge modalities. By using dream work, psychodrama, sand tray, and sensorimotor therapies, I have enriched my practice beyond talk therapy as alternative methods to reach the unconscious.
I enjoy working with clients who have had therapy experience or no previous experience. Historically, my clients are creative, intelligent and responsible people who really want to come to therapy, and I work hard to cultivate a relationship built on trust and respect.
