Shanel Rodriguez Castrejon, LMFT
My name is Shanel. My approach to therapy is client-centered and collaborative. I am passionate about helping my clients build resiliency to life’s difficulties through empowerment practices, mindfulness training and cognitive restructuring. I offer teletherapy and in-person sessions, and am based in Costa Mesa, California.
Education & Experience
I have a BA in Linguistics from Cal State Long Beach and an MA in Psychology from California Southern University. I am trained in EMDR therapy and TF-CBT which focus on helping you discover your inner working models and radically change them so you can repair and heal past trauma. I also collaborate with Journey Clinical to provide Ketamine Assisted Therapy. I have experience working in residential treatment facilities, community-based mental health, and private practice, working with individuals with substance use disorders, anxiety and depression, trauma, veterans as well as elite athletes.
