Anadel Barbour PhD., LMFT
Trauma Healing Therapist
Because my life has been filled with challenges, I have a deep understanding of suffering. My journey to here was made up of years of family dysfunction and abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, mad passion for acting and punk rock, and many failed loves and lusts. My life changed when I decided to do things differently. I got sober. I began to heal.
My specialties are the result of my personal experiences:
-I focus on sex because my shame and guilt have healed.
-I focus on trauma because my fears no longer rule my thought life.
-I focus on addiction because hope has replaced hopelessness.
That is my wish for you. If you do things differently, things will be different.
My approach includes helping you choose the life you want to live. My practice helps find relief for those suffering from sensitive sex/sexuality issues, traumas, addictions, anxieties and depression. Using a combination of EMDR and Mindfulness, we work together to create the life you want to live.
With a PhD. in Human Sexuality, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I am a fully Certified EMDR Therapist.
My Doctorate Degree in Philosophy of Human Sexuality is from The Institute of Human Sexuality, San Francisco.
My Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology is from Antioch University, Los Angeles.
My certification in EMDR Trauma Therapy is from The Institute for Creative Mindfulness, in Ohio.
My certification in Mindfulness is from Insight LA, Los Angeles, & Spirit Rock, San Francisco.
My reason for doing this is that I love it. To watch people change brings me joy.
I still love punk rock, I still love acting, and I love to dance!
