Are you working through a life stressor, building or redefining a relationship with a loved one, or trying to develop a deeper understanding of who you are? As a multi-culturally compassionate Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, I have helped adolescents and adult clients from diverse backgrounds develop the tools necessary to process anxiety, depression, grief, family or interpersonal stressors, and trauma in order to build a life of peaceful intention.

Since retiring from the military in 2017 I have made it my goal to help others learn the psychological skills they can utilize to empower themselves. I work collaboratively with my clients in order to strengthen relationships, foster understanding and acceptance, and promote personal growth. I integrate elements of ACT, CBT, DBT, EFT, and Solution Focused Therapy into a tailored treatment for my client’s specific goals. I take an intersectional, and humanistic approach to my client's challenges. What this means is that I understand and respect the fact that I am not the expert on your life, you are. No matter what path brought you to my profile, I am excited to help you figure out your next steps as we work together to develop tools that are tailored to your life, challenges, and goals.

I believe on a fundamental level, we are all searching for meaning. How we define and find that meaning within our lives is unique to each and every individual. I believe those differences are worth acknowledging and celebrating. We are all deserving of love, affection, and acceptance on our paths toward meaning. I have years of experience within the LGBTQ+ community and am passionate about working with families, individuals, and partnerships of all backgrounds. I have witnessed the transformative power of radical acceptance and want to help others find it within themselves.

Acceptance doesn’t mean that everything in our lives is fair, equitable, stable, or just. Acceptance is a tool that serves as a starting point on our personal growth journey.  By acknowledging where we are present, our unique circumstances, talents/skills, emotional/material support, and challenges we can begin to make our first steps on the path. Acceptance is a tool that empowers us to make meaningful changes in line with our values, toward our goals.

Life can feel overwhelming, especially as the people, relationships, and circumstances that support us through life, change. No matter how you find meaning or define love and family, I am excited to help you on your path. Let’s Talk.


I graduated from California Poly Pomona with my Masters in May of 2022. I received my undergraduate degrees in psychology and criminal justice from the University of Georgia in 2018. I have spent time as an elementary school mental health counselor as well as a community mental health therapist, and have experience treating individuals, children, and families from a wide range of populations and cultural backgrounds. 

I tend to employ a more person-centered style of therapy, using a multicultural lens to tailor treatment to each client's individual needs.  I draw upon elements of CBT and trauma-focused CBT to help individuals tap into some of the roots of their negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Life can be incredibly challenging and unpredictable, and my goal is to help my clients grow, progress, and manage the obstacles that life throws our way. Self-forgiveness and self-love are themes that drive my therapeutic work.

My practice is an insight-oriented approach. I tend to be a little lighter on the advice giving side, because you have likely had enough advice thrown at you throughout your lifetime. I use a trauma-informed, depth-oriented psychodynamic style and work with adults, teens, multicultural populations, LGBTQ, and persons with disabilities.   But I will be direct with you, as I believe the best type of care is one that is collaborative.

Our Therapists

Almog's Style of Therapy

I believe therapy is one of the greatest gifts that we can give to ourselves. It is an opportunity to explore and learn about the mysteries of our inner self. When I am working with a client both of us discover a vast new world that waits to unfold.

I studied at Pacifica Graduate Institute, a graduate school dedicated to discovering the inner contents of the self and the secrets of the archetypes of our humanity. I believe in working with my clients face to face, together, by sharing a journey in order to learn about the hardships of today while gaining knowledge about  past and present experiences. 

I believe in and encourage my client’s strength and ability to solve their own problems and become the healers of their own wounds. I work as a guide and as a fellow traveller in your journey toward self discovery.  With every step we take toward discovery, I work hand in hand with my clients, letting them lead in finding the sources of their suffering and their capability to heal them. 

Treatment Modalities: Person Centered Therapy, Post Jungian, Family Systems, Trauma Theory, Sex Therapy, and working within the Feminine Principle. I work with LGBTQ community and with all kind of diversity. At Eye Of The Storm counseling I specialize with Adolescents, Adults, Relationships, Individuation, Immigration, Life Changes, Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Sexual Issues,  Personal Growth and Development, Life Style issues, and Court referrals.

"Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity." - Carl Jung

"Sooner or later something seems to call us onto a particular path... this is what I must do, this is what I've got to have. This is who I am." - James Hillman
