Shyma El Sayed (she/her)

Accepting Clients

I am a psychologist by trade, artist by heart, and a guide in healing by spirit.

Clinical Psychologist in California

About My Clients

I love working with creatives and people that break the mold. You know who you are when you look around the room and no one quite looks like you, thinks like you, talks like you or feels the way you do. You're quirky with a lot of heart. Your story may have started with a rough beginning but you're choosing to alchemize your experiences into gold, make the most of your life and dream big. You're the first-gen'rs, the survivors, the creators, the alchemists ready to know their magic.

My Background and Approach

The vision of my practice, Alkeme Psychology, is that we all have the inner strength, magic, and wisdom to understand + heal from our past experiences. I envision healing as a natural, intuitive process and my role is to serve as a guide to connect you to your inner gold. Some core influences: Trauma-Focused, Creativity, Mindfulness, Eastern Medicine (meridians, chakras, tapping), EMDR + Psychedelic Integration Therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the arts, humanities + culture and how each of these elements inform how we move through the world. I believe in diversity. I believe that ease is a birthright. I believe that healing is possible. Curious by nature, I am often reading, learning a new skill set, and as a result making a beautiful mess. When I am not buried in my own mind, I enjoy being out in nature and moving my body. I also spend a good amount of time illustrating mandalas, creating clean candles, and dreaming up other items that support soul care.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
