About Dr. Lena Axelsson

When human beings experience trauma, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. My great passion is bringing healing to people who have been through a traumatic experience. I help my clients, who include children, adults and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole and safe.
I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been trained in a range of modalities including Relational Gestalt Therapy, Gestalt Play Therapy and Somatic Experiencing. My educational background includes a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and a Psy.D in Clinical Psychology from Ryokan College in Los Angeles. I have a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Stockholm, Sweden and also earned a graduate certificate in Gestalt Psychotherapy from the University of Derby in the U.K.
I have been a practicing psychotherapist for twelve years in the United States, prior to which I practiced for two years in Stockholm, Sweden. I work in private practice in Los Gatos and downtown Santa Cruz at Santa Cruz Integrative Medicine. The focus of my practice is on both individuals and families,
