Charmaine Bridgens

Welcome! I believe that we all need a space to be ourselves, without judgement, prejudice, shame or guilt. We cannot do this life alone, we all need support and "our person". My goal is to create a safe place to be able to process, reflect, and work through the difficult times and spaces of our lives.

I was born in Kitwe, Zambia (Africa) and was raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. My family and I immigrated to California twenty five years ago. I have been married for 41 years and have three adult daughters, two son in laws and two beautiful grandchildren.

I am currently completing my Master’s of Clinical Psychology at Notre Dame de Namur University and previously graduated with a B.A. in Psychology at San Francisco State University. I volunteered at Rape Trauma Services for a year and a half and have a heart for working with people who have experienced trauma and loss, these often go hand in hand. My goal would be to give you that safe space, to provide you with the support and tools to find your own form of peace and courage as you move forward into the next chapter of your life.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern."

- Elizabeth Kubler Ross.
