Ann Alsaadi, LMFT

Philosophy of Care

Hello my name is Ann Alsaadi. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California (LMFT) since 2007. I have conducted groups for Parenting, Anger Management, Domestic Violence, Sexual Offenses and Victims of Crime. I also worked in the foster care and adoption field through both the social work and mental health perspectives for many years. Through this I gained experience with working with several issues in regards to children, families, infertility, adoption issues and issues related to foster care from the perspectives of the foster children and youth, resource parents and birth families. 

My passion in all the work I have done is to help people reach their goals, heal from trauma related issues and issues related to different phases of life. I provide non-judgmental and open hearted support for people in my work and feel honored to be a part of each person’s journey. I work from a person-centered approach in the therapeutic relationship with my client. I strive to meet each client "where they are" and to provide support to each person in his or her individual process of self-discovery and path towards self-actualization.

Talking through your feelings and receiving an alternative viewpoint can be therapeutic in itself. I am interested in your personal story and will provide support, guidance, and understanding throughout your wellness journey. In working from a relational lens, I help individuals form better relationships with themselves and others. We will explore your unique story, discuss attachment and discover the underlying thoughts and feelings that may contribute to discord and conflict. Also, as a brainspotting practitioner, I can help you to process unresolved traumas and work with you to expand your heart’s desire within yourself. 

In therapy, the client is the expert and the path and pace of therapy is the choice of the client. My role as a therapist is to provide structure and support while holding space for my client on his or her own personal journey towards healing and self discovery. 

Sometimes people just need someone to talk to. Therapy provides a warm and safe place to explore issues and clear emotional and mental obstacles so that you can live your best life. Transformation is not easy. It is a brave and difficult choice at times to make the decision to seek help for anything, including and sometimes especially, when it comes to mental health. Contact me if you feel I can help you.
