Margaux Bonzon

(MA, LMFT)

About Me

I am a psychotherapist (LMFT#107651) licensed in California and have been providing mental health services for over 6 years. As an LMFT, I am trained to look at things systemically which means we value the relationship as a context for healing. ln a couple, each individual brings their history and idiosyncrasies into the relationship which creates a dynamic and interrelated system. It often takes a neutral third party to observe the patterns, unconscious behaviors, and ineffective communication which can lead to tribulations in a relationship.
As a rostered Child-Parent Psychotherapy provider and a fellow of the Napa Infant-Parent Mental Health Fellowship, I have extensive experience with parenting, pregnancy, fertility, and various family constellations (LGBTQ, adoption, foster care, blended families...). Throughout my childhood and adulthood I have lived in several countries, including France, Switzerland, Spain, Canada and the US. I have a personal and professional understanding of the impact of transitions, first-and-second generation conflict, the Expat experience, and the Third Culture Kid experience.

I use a combination of approaches that I tailor to the needs and strengths of my clients. These include person-centered/humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, attachment-based, and strength-based.
My therapeutic approach is nonjudgmental, open, and supportive with a touch of humor. I believe my clients to be the experts of their own lives who invite me in to help guide and support them to meet their goals. I collaborate with you by holding up a mirror to reflect on your past and present and by providing tools and strategies to overcome obstacles and challenges. Together, we can explore the way your experiences are shaped by your thoughts, perceptions, emotions, and behaviours to identify what no longer serves your relationship and to reinforce what does.

I look forward to our work together!
