My name is JoMarie Tyrrell.  I was born and raised in the Philippines and moved here to the United States when I was an adolescent.  I am fluent in both tagalog and English.  My journey into becoming a family therapist began when I was a 4th grade teacher in Richmond, CA.  It was here that I realized the necessity for emotional safety in order for my students to learn.  Then, I had personal events that led me to my own inner inquiry.  I was blessed enough to have been guided by a therapist who helped me uncover hope.  This relationship solidified my decision to further pursue my education to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.   On my way to becoming to a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I earned my Certified Substance Abuse Counselor.

The foundation on which I choose to practice therapy and live my life is in seeking truth, being authentic,  creating a safe space for those around me and being compassionate.  I work with individuals, couples, families and children ages 3-12.


Personal Mission Statement: “To create a world of peace, authenticity and joy by living in my truth and utilizing my talents, passion and wisdom.”

I look forward to meeting you!
