Sometimes saying life is challenging, doesn’t even begin to describe the issues we face.
Most of us will often try to avoid our problems, overthink them, or reach for a temporary fix, in
hopes that things will get better. I believe healing and change occur within the safety of a
healthy therapeutic relationship, one that provides a safe space for exploration and self-
discovery. My approach to therapy is client-centered and goal-oriented, which means I utilize
therapy models based on your unique needs, such as cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based,
and psychodynamic therapies. I focus on helping you discover your strengths, build resiliency,
and develop the coping skills you are looking for.

 I have experience working with adolescents, adults, and couples, and my areas of focus
include trauma, anxiety, depression, domestic violence, grief and loss, relationships, life
transitions, and spirituality. I have also worked with autism, and ADHD, and incorporate
expressive play therapy with children and adults. My work with couples focuses on
communication and attachment, relational conflicts, and infidelity.

 My specialty is helping clients overcome the effects of trauma and abuse. Whether you
have witnessed violence, experienced physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, or feel you are
living with psychological abuse and control; by working together, we can recognize the patterns
of behavior and thinking that follow the cycle of abuse and help you discover a balance of
self-acceptance and healthy boundaries. By learning trauma-focused interventions like
TRM, individuals can learn to identify and respond to the biological reactions that often
occur after experiencing a traumatic or stressful event and acquire skills that can empower
them to decrease their level of suffering.

 If any of this sounds familiar, then welcome, I am glad you are here. My name is Linda
Bronzan and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have a master’s (MS) degree in
Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University, and a bachelor’s (BA) degree in
Psychology from California State University Channel Islands. I have additional training in the
somatic-focused Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy
(EFIT)-with an emphasis on trauma. I am a member of the California Association of Marriage
and Family Therapists (CAMFT) and the Ventura Chapter (VC-CAMFT). I have spent some time
leading recovery groups for codependency and addiction and obtained training in the 40-hour
domestic violence certification for DV advocates.
