Finley is a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#145577) practicing in Los Angeles, CA under the supervision of Kate Behzadi, LMFT (#97100). Finley holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and a Bachelor’s of Science in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech. They have extensive experience working with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and adult children of narcissistic abuse, as well as supporting others in the LGBTQ+ community with their growth and self-discovery journeys at any stage. Finley approaches therapy from a non-pathologizing perspective, believing that everything we do is inherently protective in nature and there are no bad parts of ourselves, only parts that need a new way to accomplish the same goal. Finley enjoys helping others reconnect with their sense of self and find ways to feel safe that match their most authentic life. 


I am someone who became a therapist because I was the client. I believe that the most important part of therapy is human connection and understanding, and I know firsthand how relieving it can be to connect with someone who understands your experience. As a therapist, I see you as the expert and take a supporting role in your journey, here to share resources and help you connect with the strengths and experiences within that will guide you toward the path that best honors your authentic self. No matter where you are in your journey, I am here for you with judgement-free, shame-free support. Whether you are looking for specific support or just feel lost and don’t know what you need yet, we can start wherever you are. I am comfortable sitting with you in your darkest spaces, celebrating your victories, sifting through overwhelm when everything feels like chaos, and everything in-between. Together, we can find what works best for you, no matter what that looks like. 


    I believe that human connection is an important part of feeling safe, especially when sharing your most vulnerable feelings. It can be hard to open up to someone you don’t know, so here are a few things about me on a human level to break the ice: I am transmasculine, high-masking auDHD, love puzzles, am a huge video games and anime fan, grew up in The Netherlands, and my best friend is my big, lazy sheepadoodle named Bernoulli. Before entering the counseling world, I was an aerospace engineer working in robotic space exploration while processing my own healing journey on the side. I found that I was using many of my systems engineering skills in my trauma work, so once I reached a point where I felt secure and at peace within myself I decided to learn how to use those skills to help others find their unique path to inner peace as well. I would love to support you!
