Dr. Margie Mirell, Ph.D., LMFT #25701

Margie’s journey to becoming a psychotherapist was built on a combination of many varied life experiences. Having a bachelor’s degree from California State University at Northridge, magna cum laude, in both Psychology and Art, she continued her education by attending many seminars and conferences. After college, Margie worked for 10 years as a Vice President of Marketing for a mid-sized computer company during the 1980’s.

After not having been satisfied with the business world, Margie decided to pursue her dream profession, psychology. The experience and process of this second profession has provided her with understanding. Her goal is now and always has been to help people in dealing with the everyday, the unusual challenges of life and to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.

She followed her dream at Antioch University and, after years of study, mastered the Jungian analysis she uses with her clients today. She also interned at North Hollywood Hospital specializing in eating disorders and Addictions. Most recently, she expanded her expertise earning a Ph.D. in Clinical Sexology from Modern Sex Therapy Institutes.


Margie has a passionate belief that a deep sense of resilience and personal happiness results from healing our past and dealing with present life experiences. This process of understanding our past wounds allows for new healthy relationships, communication and decisions. Old destructive patterns are transformed into safe conversations, positive relationships and healthy behavior patterns.
