I am privileged to have the opportunity to supervise Marriage and family therapist associates in my private practice. As they gain hours of supervised, post graduate experience and develop their own private practices, they bring their own wonderful passion and creativity for this work. Each one has unique training and areas of focus they prefer. Currently they are taking new clients and can do so at a reduced fee based on a sliding scale. If you are interested in working with either of them, please feel free to contact me for more information.
Maybe you’re suffering from an experience that has been with you since early childhood, or with a current relationship, recent break-up, or a harsh inner-critic. Perhaps you struggle with setting healthy boundaries, worry that you are too sensitive, or get easily overwhelmed. As your therapist, I can help you discover the value of simply being you. Rather than seeing these feelings as a weakness, you will come to see how they can be used as a strength.
Psychotherapy is brave and a sign of your potential to heal and thrive. My goal is to help you overcome perceived limitations, and bring awareness to your strengths, values, and overall true authentic self. I specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, addiction, as well as trauma due to intimate partner violence and sexual assault. My therapeutic approach is rooted in modern attachment theory, mindfulness, and I will often utilize tools from CBT, DBT, solution-focused psychotherapy, and existential psychotherapy.
I’m passionate about working with adolescents and young adults to help them transform their pain. It’s not uncommon to be stuck with feelings of depression, anxiety, low self- worth. Often past experiences leave us with pain that alters our ability to experience joy. Do outside pressures to be a certain way leave you with feelings of guilt and shame about who you are? These are just some of the roadblocks that keep us isolated and block us from trusting and loving ourselves.
We aren’t meant to figure it out alone and there is no one size fits all in this process. I work eclectically and collaboratively so we can explore your suffering to uncover your unique gifts as you learn to heal yourself. I believe it can be helpful to understand our pasts, and how it has informed who we are and what we believe. I am also trauma informed and utilize somatic and mindfulness techniques to develop resiliency. Ultimately healing doesn’t just happen in the mind, for true release and freedom I believe it’s important to connect with our bodies to find safety and confidence within ourselves.
I also work with clients who have had or are preparing to have an experience with psychedelic medicines. These experiences can be catalyst for deep revelations and healing.
Creating an intention is an important way to prepare for and deepen your work while in the experience. Having a psychedelic experience can be one of the most powerful and profound unveilings, yet the experience itself is just 10% of the healing process. The biggest opportunity for transformation awaits in the other 90%, the integration. Support with integrating is helpful to guide you in transforming whatever makes you feel stuck, lost, or not good enough so you can connect with your true self.
I’m a Santa Monica native and graduate from Antioch University Los Angeles, where I completed my Masters in Clinical Psychology. I completed my traineeship at Antioch Community Therapy Services, a free therapy program initiated in response to the impact of Covid-19 for both clients and therapists. I had the privilege of working with a wide range of clients, ages 23-68 focusing on anxiety, depression, trauma, substance issues and sexuality. I believe community is a necessary part of healing and something I hope to help cultivate in my work. Outside the therapy room, you can find me hiking, dancing or laying under the sun, more often than not with music in the background.
I’m Anikke Fox, an empathetic therapist with a background in the arts, education, and community outreach. My journey as a storyteller, writer, and teacher has taught me the healing power of creative expression, shaping my approach to therapy. If you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, disconnection, or grief, know that I’m here to support individuals and couples in finding vitality and connection.
Cultural humility is important to me; I approach each client warmly and professionally, respecting their unique backgrounds and identities. Life has its ups and downs, and I’m here to walk with you. Together, we’ll work on healing from trauma, rediscovering your true self, and improving your connections with others. My passion is in addressing trauma and relationship issues, with a focus on gentleness and self-connection.
My practice combines psychodynamic and mindfulness techniques with methods like parts work, CBT, DBT, narrative therapy, and somatic interventions. I also have experience supporting individuals through the integration of psychedelic experiences and exploring spirituality. Storytelling isn’t just art; it’s a powerful healing tool. We’ll explore your personal narrative, uncover inner strengths, and nurture resilience, especially during times of change.
My commitment is to create a space for you—one capable of holding the full spectrum of life’s beauty and challenges. Our journey will foster empathy, acceptance, and empowerment, all guided by the principles of connection, creativity, and insight, enabling you to embrace your life with newfound confidence and resilience.
Health and wellness have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember and I have ALWAYS been a girly-girl. Growing up in a house of 5 boys, I had to bring all the feminine energy!
My journey to becoming a meditation and breathwork coach began a few years ago. It started with the graduation of college which lead to huge life changes, moving to a new city, and starting my first job. During this post-grad life, I started to become anxious and fearful and did not recognize myself in the mirror. I lost interest in all things I loved, became numb to my emotions and started having panic attacks every day. This was my body telling me I needed to change my life.
Yoga soon became an integral part of my life. It felt like the one hour of the day where I could relax and release that “fight or flight” mode I was constantly in which lead me to getting my 200 hr yoga teacher certification.
During my yoga training, I noticed my anxiety creeping back in and my fears start to overpower me. I began feeling like I did not have control of my life and was seeing everything from a very negative perspective. I needed to release the harmful thoughts. I started to research deeply into natural ways to cope with mental health struggles and all the signs were pointing me to breathwork and meditation. I decided to get my certification in breathwork and meditation. I was totally captivated by the science and findings and knew I must share it with the world.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted to help others feel their best. Here I am, ready to help as many people as I can become the best versions of themselves whether that is through breathwork and meditations or moving their body. I have completely transformed my life and all I want is to encourage others to do the same. I believe with my whole heart that we can be filled with happiness and happiness while balancing the other more negative emotions we may feel. The world deserves to see our superpowers.
