Pillow Talk Therapy

Jodie Shea, MS LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist


Jodie was born and raised in Connecticut. She attended the University of Connecticut and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She then moved abroad to Seoul, South Korea to pursue personal interests and explore next steps in her career. It was there that a friend helped her discover her passion for couple therapy. Two and a half years later, Jodie began the Marriage and Family Therapy Master’s program at Central Connecticut State University. While a student at CCSU, Jodie participated in a Level 1 training for Internal Family Systems that was being run by the university.

Jodie moved to Los Angeles after graduating and began accruing hours toward licensure. Her experiences while pursuing a professional license included working at a youth service bureau/senior center, a large community mental health agency seeing children and families, a residential treatment center for eating disorders, and a group private practice. While in private practice, she treated individuals, couples, families and both children and adults with a range of diagnoses including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and others. It was at this time that Jodie was able to clearly develop a niche in couple and sex therapy. She had already begun pursuing additional training in both these areas (Gottman Couples Therapy, American Association of Couples and Sex Therapists course, sex therapy through The Beuhler Institute) and saw the need for more sexually informed couple therapists. Jodie became a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in June 2019 and immediately entered private practice.

Jodie currently lives in Orange County with her husband and three cats. She returns to Connecticut twice a year to visit family. Most of her time is spent with loved ones, watching TV/movies, going out to eat, and building her business. She currently operates her private practice strictly online due to COVID-19. Jodie is a professional member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapist (CAMFT), the Orange County chapter of CAMFT, and the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).
