Who We Are

Life Compass is the collaboration of Carmen Isais, AMFT and Lee Ockenden, LMFT. Carmen and Lee are a husband and wife partnership, focused on facilitating and bringing forth the innate human capacity for healing.

In 2009 Lee Ockenden and Carmen Isais merged their private psychology and coaching practices to work collaboratively in Davis, California. For the Ockenden-Isais family, it was the beginning of a decade of personal psychological study and growth. During this time they invested whole-heartedly in their training in Psychodynamic and Depth Psychology– and formed a non-profit to take on associate counselors and therapists to pass on what they had learned.

Always moving forward and building off of science-back research, Carmen and Lee purchased a yoga studio in nearby Vacaville, California, in order to promote the healing benefits of Mind-Body practices. Akasha Yoga and Wellness offers traditional yoga classes, as well as trauma-informed yoga and yoga psychotherapy.

From the Ockenden-Isais family:

“Life Compass is the result of not only our life’s work– but also a reflection of our life together.  As part of our extended family we are honored to work with a group of passionate, caring counselors who believe deeply in the healing power of psychotherapy. We have carefully selected our clinical team to reflect not only a foundation in researched-based therapies, but also a heart-centered and purpose driven approach.  Ultimately is our therapists’ gifts compassion and kindness that support the collaborative feeling of our practice.”

Please contact us with any questions you may have, and we look forward to meeting you!
