Dr. Alexandra Agar, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Dr. Alexandra Agar is a licensed marriage and family therapist and a certified sex therapist specializing in sexual health and wellness. She became interested in a practice focus on sex and sex therapy while earning her MS at California State University, Northridge and completed her doctorate in Clinical Sexology at the Modern Sex Therapy Institute. During her graduate studies she was a member of an award-winning team who developed psychoeducational curriculum for adolescent boys with problematic sexual behavior and as her graduate thesis, created a proposal for a hands-on sex and sexuality workshop in the Los Angeles area for people with disabilities. Alexandra interned at the Ness Center in Los Angeles where she counseled adolescents, families and couples with issues ranging from intimacy and self-esteem to depression and addiction. Alexandra’s therapeutic philosophy is rooted in the belief that every individual has the right to achieve full sexual citizenship, incorporating sexual expression, sexual health and well-being, no matter their age, gender, physical limitations, or sexual preference. Working with Dr. Shannon Chavez at the SHAPE Center, a space dedicated to sex positivity and inclusion focusing on both the mind and the body, is a unique opportunity to connect with clients experiencing sigma, exclusion, or a lack of confidence in their ability to claim or reclaim their sexual health. Alexandra offers a safe, sex-positive environment for PWD/kink/poly/LGBTQIA+ couples and individuals, along with CBT, addiction recovery, behavioral & mind-body interventions.
Vincent Lombardi, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
My approach to therapy is collaborative and experiential. We will work towards your goal by using internal wisdom and life experience to build on the existing resources in order to help you find a more satisfying life and relationships. I specialize in mood disorders (anxiety, depression, bipolar), relationships, family difficulties, LGBTQQI issues and PTSD/trauma. I have over seventeen years’ experience with counseling men on how to be better in their relationships and have extensive training working with couples. I value both evidenced-based techniques and the therapeutic connection. I am available for Saturday sessions (by appointment only) and offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to discuss if we could work well together.
