Mariel Barcebal, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Whether navigating relationships, addressing trauma, managing career transitions, or exploring identity, I provide a compassionate and empowering space for folks to develop a deep sense of self-connection and self-trust. My approach is honors diverse voices and experiences while also utilizing highly tailored interventions, reflective dialogue, and impactful therapy modalities. I especially enjoy working with BIPOC folks who are looking to explore their identity within their communities and walk a path of liberation and decolonization. I empower my clients to reclaim their autonomy, cultivate self-compassion, and pursue fulfilling lives aligned with their values and aspirations. And beyond being just a therapist, I am a steadfast ally to my clients, championing their journey towards growth and transformation.
I am first generation Filipina-American liberation psychologist with licenses to work with folks residing in California, Washington, and Hawaii. I specialize working with diverse adult individuals seeking to navigate anxiety, life transitions, and heal from pervasive patterns perpetuated from intergenerational trauma. In addition, I have specialty in providing folks with psychedelic harm reduction and integration support, as well as treating individuals who are living with the effects of chronic pain and illness. I completed my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have extensive experience providing individual therapy, group facilitation, psychological assessment, and mental health consultation. Furthermore, I have seven years of experience instructing psychology courses at the post-secondary level.
I am offering the following services: -Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration Consultation -Short-term Psychedelic Integration Therapy -Long-term Psychedelic Integration Therapy -Individual Therapy *Disclaimer* - I do not offer guided psychedelic experiences. I do offer Psychedelic Integration Therapy which is distinct from psychedelic-assisted therapy in that it focuses on preparation for and integration of psychedelic work, as well as processing a psychedelic experience in a therapeutic context afterwards. Furthermore, Psychedelic Integration Therapy is also different from a guided psychedelic experience in which the facilitator is present while the client is under the influence of the plant medicine or substance.
