Chasity is passionate about helping people unblock their hidden potential and resolve past trauma. She uses psychotherapy and certified coaching techniques to assist her clients in reaching their goals. Her strength is her willingness to meet the client where they are and support them in a way that is tailored to their needs and temperament. This one-on-one connection is crucial in encouraging a client’s awareness and behavioral change.
She received her Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy from Pepperdine University and her Bachelors of Science in Finance from the University of TN, Knoxville. Chasity is a member of California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists where she serves as a representative of the Diversity Committee and a former co-chair of the Speaker Committee in the Los Angeles Branch. She is also a member of American Psychological Association and Psi Chi International Honor Society.
Chasity’s experience includes counseling individuals of all ages, religions, and cultural backgrounds, including Armenian, African-American, Caucasian, Filipino, Latino, Jewish, Christian, and Catholic amongst many others. She also works with various presenting problems such as adults with persistent anxiety and/or depression, adolescents with behavioral and social disorders, families with high conflict, adults neglected as children, emerging adults with high anxiety, and middle-aged adults with transition or career issues. Throughout her therapeutic practices, Chasity has expanded her passion in working with clients who feel stuck in the past or present and need support to move toward their futures. She empowers her clients to choose the life he or she desires and provides support as they process traumatic memories, break through obstacles, and establish guidelines and boundaries. She uses integrative evidence-based approaches attuned to the client’s individuality.
Chasity also has school-based experience counseling elementary school students individually and in groups that present with ADHD and other social & behavioral deficits. Her creative approach with the use of experiential therapy through art, music, psychodrama, and mindfulness exercises guided the children in communicating their needs, understanding relationships, building self-esteem, and establishing boundaries.
Chasity is unique in that her core values of community, connection, and compassion promote a collaborative effort in developing relationships, fostering rapport, and providing a safe environment to begin the healing process. She holds the therapist-client connection in high regard. She believes that sustaining a healthy, positive relationship with at least one person can be life changing.
