Alexandra Agar, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Alexandra Agar is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She became interested in a practice focused on sex and sex therapy while earning her MS at California State University, Northridge, and ultimately plans to become an AASECT Certified Sex therapist. During her graduate studies she was a member of an award-winning team who developed a 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. Every human 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. 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 stigma, 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, and 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.
