Rosa Sicairos - The Malama Collective

I approach therapeutic work with openness, warmth, and a belief in the power of my patients inner strength and resiliency. By creating a neutral safe space, listening to their concerns, we customize a treatment plan based upon your needs and timeline.  My theoretical orientation focuses on a Person Centered approach as well as Psychodynamic therapy.   I am trained in both EMDR and somatically trained in the Trauma Resiliency Model.

I have had the privilege to work with clients living with Trauma, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Addictions, and  Dissociation. I am experienced in working affirmatively with Gender Identity exploration, transition, and associated adjustments for loved ones and partners . I enjoy working with teens, adolescents, couples and individuals virtually through telehealth. 

I started my journey at Pepperdine University Graduate school of Education and Psychology pursuing my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, where I am now an adjunct professor.  I  am pursuing dual licensure as both an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT) as well as an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (APCC).

Bozorgi Ehsan - The Malama Collective

I have a warm, understanding, and yet direct approach to therapy. I provide a nonjudgmental and compassionate space for you to empty your pain while developing insight and tools that can help support your journey of becoming a better version of yourself. Therapy is not one size fits all so we will collaborate during the first few sessions to find what will work best for you.

I put a special emphasis on your environment and relationships and will consider how an issue influences your internal world as well as external relationships with others. I have experience working with individuals, families, couples, and teenagers. My experience as a therapist includes working with individuals and couples who are struggling with substance use, anxiety, depression, anger management, personality and mood disorders, as well as stress management and miscommunication.

Maryam Obeyd Slater - The Malama Collective

Every session is approached with curiosity of your unique experiences and backgrounds. With an intersectional and social justice-oriented lens, I am committed to you being seen, valued, and heard. As a first-generation and Queer-identifying person, my journey has included moving from hiding and shrinking myself, to celebrating the wholeness and intersections of my identities with empowerment and dignity. 

Working collaboratively and relationally are values I hold dearly, meaning that we will work together to create a plan of care that is meaningful for you. Through our sessions, you’ll learn to recognize and voice your needs. Some of my experience includes working with trauma, non-traditional relationships, neurodiversity, grief and loss, disordered eating, identity, and with members of LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, diaspora, and refugee communities. 

Kai Lewis, LMFT


LMFT# 138111

I am a queer transmasculine nonbinary therapist specializing in LGBTQIA mental health care.  I work in both nonprofit and private practice settings to help bring affirming, accessible, LGBTQIA specific care to my communities by providing consultation, training, and affirmative psychotherapy.  I specialize in working at the intersections of multiple marginalized identities, with an intersectional and trauma informed approach that includes EMDR, mindfulness, narrative therapy, family systems, mindfulness, grounding and somatic work.  My approach is rooted in a trauma informed social justice lens.

I foster a collaborative space for my patients to connect & explore their life experience, deepen self knowledge, and create more positive outcomes. I hold and acknowledge the unique identities you have, when assisting you in navigating your experiences, and in discovering how the unique intersections and  complexities of your identities, may affect other areas of your life.
