Sandra Shahrokh is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. She holds a Master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University with an emphasis in spiritual and depth psychology.
Sandra has experience working with children, teens and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, substance use, cultural issues, trauma, and relational challenges. She received her training in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic theory at Valley Community Counseling Clinic in North Hollywood. Sandra is passionate about offering a space where clients can bring all parts of themselves and their stories into the therapeutic space to be heard, validated and explored. From a psychodynamic approach Sandra believes that often our childhood experiences and attachments impact our present day feelings, thoughts, behaviors and relationships. Sandra believes in a collaborative space tailoring her approach to the unique needs of each client incorporating psychodynamic, CBT, parts work, and mindfulness based interventions.
Drawing from her own multi ethnic background Sandra is passionate about identities as it relates to multicultural issues and bringing cultural and familial roles into the therapeutic space. When not working, enjoys salsa dancing, traveling and hiking.
