Domenique Harrison is a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #114951 and a Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor #6727, through the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. She is also a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) and the American Counseling Association (ACA). Domenique received a Bachelor of Arts in History from Haverford College, a Master in Public Health from New York University, and a Master in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family therapy from Pepperdine University. Since 2018, Domenique has supported clients in the community mental health setting of Los Angeles. And as a Black woman therapist, she collaborates with clients to build self and other awareness and understand how systemic oppression and individual disempowerment affect their everyday lives.
Domenique grounds her therapeutic work in empathy, justice, and racial equity and believes in owning the impact of our words and actions rather than our intentions. Her therapeutic approach integrates transgenerational family therapy, narrative and solution-focused theories, and trauma-informed practices that lead to transformative individual, couple, and family client outcomes. Domenique – a compassionate collaborator and truth-teller – "stands in the gap" with her clients as they realize their truths and actualize their goals and passions.
Domenique works from an embodied and relational approach to mental health and wellness. Her clients learn to connect to their minds, bodies, and souls and come to terms with how family, friends, and community see, hear, and experience them. More than anything, Domenique wants her clients to know they can shift from a "survive to thrive" mindset. Whether you are a professional woman of color discouraged by singleness, a multicultural couple wanting to set boundaries and improve communication, or a young adult desiring to develop your racial identity, Domenique will join with you on your path towards growth and healing.
