More about Isabella Pazmino, MFT

She originally pursued a career in therapy and mental health as a path to self-discovery. She wasn’t sure who she was and what she needed and found herself in isolating relationships. What interested her in the world of psychotherapy was the possibility of building a new way of connecting with herself and others and a better way to exist. She continues to focus some of her work on relationships, supporting patients to not only build safe and vital relationships but also helping them through divorce, separation, break-ups, infidelity, trauma, etc.

Her working style is client-centered and systemic. She integrates Cognitive Behavior Therapy into her classes, small groups, and one-to-one sessions. She believes the dynamic between therapist and client is a place that can facilitate growth and healing. In working together with her patients, she honors their process and needs and creates a space that celebrates their courage, invites them to discover what fulfills them, and supports them in healing. She works from a non-judgmental stance, recognizing that growth embraces all parts of ourselves. 

Isabella knows that some patients may not find relief from psychotherapy alone, and with Mindful Health Solutions, her patients can connect with an integrated approach to healing. To her, Mindful Health Solutions honors that healing exists in community and that attending physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual needs is important for an individual to heal.

Personal Interests

Isabella has a passion for learning and resting. Outside of her work, she focuses on rest- and rest for her has many faces, spending time with those she loves, connecting with nature, attending to her plants, sleeping, etc- and learning (reading, taking classes, watching documentaries or movies, etc.) She also paints. She is passionate about creativity and believes therapy is one of many forms of art.

Education & Experience

Isabella completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Spanish with a Minor in Journalism from Flagler College in Saint Augustine, Florida.

She completed her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Graduate School of Education and Psychology from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. During her studies, she was a Teaching Assistant for the Latinx Society and Psychology Course.

Following graduation, she worked for the Department of Mental Health and a non-profit agency providing therapy in Spanish to the underserved Latinx communities. She worked with survivors of violence and with people that engaged in violence towards others. In working with the Latinx community, she worked with families, same sex and straight couples, and people in poly relationships, supporting them to build safer and vital relationships. She also worked with teenagers and provided crisis counseling. She got a certification in gender studies and feminist theories and began a certification in sex therapy.

She is experienced in working with individuals who struggle with disconnection in their relationships, desire, sexuality, sexual dissatisfaction and intimacy issues, co-dependency, women’s issues, body image, gender violence, grief, immigration, discrimination, stress, and trauma (physical, verbal, sexual, psychological, and emotional).

Most recently, she served as a marriage and family therapist at CALA Psychological Services, Inc., in Pasadena, CA, providing individual, conjoint, couple therapy sessions to young adults, adults and older adults to address a wide range of needs and concerns around mental health, relationship distress, co-dependency and other struggles.
