What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Hello my name is Ann Alsaadi. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California (LMFT). I have led a variety of groups. My passion in all the work I have done is to help people reach their goals, heal from trauma related issues and issues related to different phases of life. I provide non-judgmental and open hearted support for people in my work and feel honored to be a part of each person s journey. I work from a person-centered approach in the therapeutic relationship with my client. I strive to meet each client "where they are" and to provide support to each person in his or her individual process of self-discovery and path towards self-actualization. Talking through your feelings and receiving an alternative viewpoint can be therapeutic in itself. I am interested in your personal story and will provide support, guidance, and understanding throughout your wellness journey. In working from a relational lens, I help individuals form better relationships with themselves and others. We will explore your unique story, discuss attachment and discover the underlying thoughts and feelings that may contribute to discord and conflict. Also, as a brainspotting practitioner, I can help you to process unresolved traumas and work with you to expand your heart s desire within yourself. In therapy, the client is the expert and the path and pace of therapy is the choice of the client. My role as a therapist is to provide structure and support while holding space for my client on his or her own personal journey towards healing and self discovery. Sometimes people just need someone to talk to. Therapy provides a warm and safe place to explore issues and clear emotional and mental obstacles so that you can live your best life. Transformation is not easy. It is a brave and difficult choice at times to make the decision to seek help for anything, including and sometimes especially, when it comes to mental health. Contact me if you feel I can help you.
