Under Clinical Supervision

Rebecca Sosa, Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, 142731 is practicing under the supervision of Lynne Rosen (California, LCSW, 19324) at Pasadena Therapy Collective.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

As a therapist, my journey began in the world of film, where I first recognized the profound impact of storytelling on people’s lives. I came to understand that storytelling extends far beyond the screen; it shapes our personal narratives, influencing our mental health and perspectives on the world. With trauma-informed care and narrative therapy training, I offer a heart-centered, collaborative, and empowering approach. My goal is to provide a safe space for us to co-explore and co-create the changes you wish to see.

What does a first session with you look like?

Although I specialize in trauma, it's up to you if we want to delve into yours. We can acknowledge your past to gain clarity and understanding while focusing on what you want for now and the future. I recognize the individuality of each person's journey. My approach is heart-centered, collaborative, and inclusive, incorporating different therapeutic techniques and customized to align with your beliefs, values, and goals. I integrate principles of narrative therapy, which sees problems not as personal flaws but as separate entities existing within larger social and cultural contexts.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

As a former journalism & film professional, I am attuned to the diversity concerns within these industries and the potential for retraumatization, particularly among BIPOC filmmakers and media professionals. I have experience with life transitions, questioning societal expectations, embracing ADHD/neurodivergence, and choosing a path of being child and marriage-free. I also welcome destigmatizing conversations on various topics, especially sex-positivity, harm reduction, and psychedelic-assisted therapy.
