A. Kamille Conanan — she/they

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

I believe connection in relationship is essential to a full and balanced life. Whether you’re looking to better connect with yourself, your chosen or given family, your friendships, your workplace, or even the world at large – I’m glad you’re looking for support on your journey. My goal with every person I meet is for them to feel seen and respected as a whole person and that through our work together they can continue to strengthen connection in their life. 

With my values rooted in multicultural and social justice counseling, I practice therapy with a collaborative, compassionate, and open approach, acknowledging the pressures and oppressions that exist in our society and their impacts on mental health. As a queer, Pilipina American, I am passionate about working with clients of diverse racial, ethnic, sexual, gender, and class backgrounds. 

I am trained in Multicultural Counseling, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, and Gender Affirming Care. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, trauma, identity, LGBTQ+ folks, life transitions, immigrant experience, relationship challenges, sexual abuse survivors, youth engaged in sexually reactive and/or abusive behaviors, youth involved with the juvenile justice systems, and more. 

I am available to meet in person and virtually. If you’re interested in working together, please feel free to reach out and schedule a 15-minute consultation call, free of charge.

Dennis Hong — he/him/his

Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, AMFT #122355

Are you looking for someone who “gets it”? First and foremost, I am a practitioner of collaborative therapy. I believe that you are the expert in your own life, and it is not my role to tell you what’s wrong and what to fix. Rather, I am here to listen to you and to help you develop the solutions that work best for you.

My professional focus is on relationships that fall beyond the norms dictated by our society.  Perhaps you and your partner decline to check the simplified boxes of “male” or “female.” Perhaps you are exploring consensual non-monogamy. Perhaps your relationship unit is more than a couple. Perhaps you are experimenting with kink or power dynamics. Or perhaps all of the above. I am polyam- and kink-aware, and an LGBTQ+ ally.

If your relationship preferences are non-conforming or just not labelable, you may face challenges in understanding and acceptance from friends and loved ones, counseling professionals, or maybe even yourself. My goal is to help you manage these challenges coming from the outside while working on and strengthening your relationship from the inside.

What are the differences between a coach, consultant, and therapist?

A therapist focuses on the past and delves into psychological issues that require specialized training in dealing with trauma or mental health issues.

A consultant is typically an expert in a specific industry or business sector. For example a marketing consultant might answer your branding questions and even implement specific tactics for you.

A coach has specialized knowledge on how to help clients focus on the future. They serve as a sounding board for you to define your wants and desires. With a coach as your accountability partner, you discover your passion, values, and strengths and create your best life.
