A little about Jaimi…She is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#91559). She studied Psychology at UCLA and then Pepperdine University.

My name is Tiffany Falk and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#100143). I am currently working under the supervision of Curt Widhalm (#47333) at his private practice. I have my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy and received my degree from the University of Southern California (USC). I completed my undergraduate studies as a Psychology major from San Diego State University (SDSU).
For my traineeship/practicum, I worked at the Kortschak Center for Learning and Creativity (KCLC) on USC’s campus. KCLC was designed to provide enhanced academic support for the undergraduate students of USC. KCLC worked with many undergraduate students who may or may not have had Learning Disabilities such as, dyslexia, ADHD, and other learning differences.
I have a strong interest of working with athletes. Being someone who was once a competitive athlete, I understand the pressures that are put on athletes in and out of the sport. There are many social dynamics an athlete has. I hope to create a space where my client is able to discuss things that may be hindering their performance. I believe that anyone is capable of being better, with the right support and the willingness to try.
I am training in EMDR therapy, which has been shown to improve issues surrounding performance anxiety, including with athletes. I recognize that there are many things that could hinder performance that may not be obvious to the athlete or client. I believe that in using EMDR therapy, we could bring the unconscious to the conscious so that the client is more mindful and aware of what may be causing barriers to perform at their full capacity.
