Sean Love, PsyD
Life is a journey full of exciting changes and tremendous losses. As human beings, we work and play and love and grieve. Sometimes we notice unhealthy patterns in how we relate to others, or we feel stuck and unable to move forward in frustrating situations. Sometimes our lives are impacted by traumatic events. Our work may overshadow our lives and we may experience serious burnout. Anxiety and depression can be difficult realities we must deal with. We may question our self-worth, our identities, and our faith or spirituality. I have experience helping people work through these situations, assisting them in finding healing and wholeness on their life journeys. I provide a warm, safe place for clients to be themselves. This safe environment allows my clients to heal from trauma and loss, find healthy ways to relate to others, discover who they are, find healthy coping skills and self-care, and move forward in life.
I have a PsyD (Doctor of Psychology) degree in Clinical Psychology from Fuller Seminary’s Graduate School of Psychology, and an MA in Christian Leadership from Fuller’s School of Theology. I have extensive experience working with victims of trauma and abuse, as well as with clients who have experienced major losses. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy as a modality for working with trauma victims, and in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy for working with a variety of other issues. I enjoy facilitating the process of discovery and change many people experience in therapy as they improve low self-esteem and discover who they are. I help many of my clients find healthy self-care and recover from burnout. I partner with clients who are wrestling with concerns related to their spirituality and faith. I help clients recover from anxiety and depression. Additionally, I assist clients in discovering healthy relational patterns and working through unhealthy relational dynamics.
I have experience counseling clients of all ages, and many of my clients are young or middle-aged adults, couples, adolescents, and children. I also have experience working with clients who have concerns about their spirituality and religious issues. I have provided therapy to clients of diverse ethnic backgrounds, including European-American, African-American, Latino/a, and Asian.
