I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience providing psychotherapy and counseling to the Bay Area Community. I am also an alumnus of the Marina Counseling Center, having completed my internship at the center in 2005. I have served in a variety of roles at the MCC, including administration, on the Board of Directors, and I have been the Clinical Director since 2014. I am passionate about this work and about creating community for associates working towards licensure.
I received my Master of Arts Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco in 2002. Prior to becoming a Psychotherapist I worked for 10 years in the corporate world.
Travis Robinson, LMFT
Assistant Clinical Director
I am a heart centered, relational, somatically influenced therapist and supervisor, and believe that healing is largely and purely informed by the heart, grace, love, compassion. I also believe that the body holds a tremendous amount of wisdom, and by working with that wisdom we grow, both as therapists and in our personal lives. Much of my work is informed by my spiritual practice of over fifteen years.
My tenure at the Marina Counseling Center began in 2007. Since that time I have worked as a supervisor, trainer, and consultant, both for the Marina Counseling Center and other Counseling Centers in the Bay Area.
Laurie Dievendorf, AMFT
Associate Director of Programming
I received my M.A. in Counseling/Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. My approach is humanistic and holistic. I consider the many intersections of our emotional health, including all forms of relationships, identity, sexuality, spirituality, and more. I offer tools and support to help you move through the difficult waves of life.
With over 10 years of experience in health and wellness, I have taught self empowerment workshops at Universities throughout the Bay Area. I love teaching, group work and training folks to help others.
Above all, I create a safe space for people to openly and authentically express themselves.
In my free time, I love to explore nature and embark on unexpected adventures.
