As a compassionate therapist, I strive to support individuals in gaining empowerment in their lives. I believe that you are the expert in your life, and my goal is to meet you where you are and walk with you as a partner through your healing or growth journey.
I understand that humans are complex and can face a variety of challenging experiences throughout life that create difficult or unwanted thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to manage. I approach mental health from a compassionate, and holistic perspective.
I am passionate about creating a supportive, liberating, and non-judgmental space for all individuals, with an emphasis on the liberation of people of color, women, and women during pregnancy and their mothering journey.
I am trained in Cognitive Therapies, trauma-focused modalities, Brainspotting, parts-work, and Maternal Mental Health. In addition to practicing traditional therapeutic models, I enjoy providing alternative methods to healing such as guided meditation, breathwork, and other holistic approaches.
About Me: I am a California native! I received my Master of Social Work Degree from Indiana University and have worked as a therapist and an advocate for individuals and families in need of resources and support.
I believe that we all have healing power within each of us and I am here to support you in accessing this power. I look forward to connecting with you.
Hey I’m Ace and I’m glad you’re here.
Life isn't always easy and sometimes we find ourselves feeling lonely, confused, and unsure about the future. Dealing with feelings and balancing the pressures of life can be overwhelming at times, but if you are reading this, you are taking a step toward relief. Breath. You’ve arrived at a safe space where you are free to come as you are. As your therapist, my purpose is to support your journey toward mental wellness. Together we will explore, process, and dive into the challenges of your life to overcome obstacles that stand in your way.
As for me, I’m a first-generation Nigerian-American, queer, woman, born and raised in Northern California. I studied Women’s and Gender Studies at Sacramento State and earned my Masters of Social Work at California State University, San Bernardino. I’m currently pursuing my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Fielding Graduate University. I love traveling, reading, listening to music, and relaxing in front of the water as often as I can.
My purpose in life has been to heal myself so that I can assist others who seek to do the same. My personal experiences, cultural identities, and professional background have guided my own journey, and have equipped me with the ability to support yours, especially if you have concerns regarding:
· Sexuality · Gender Expression · Relationships (platonic, romantic, and non-monogamous)
· Family Dynamics · Trauma (personal and intergenerational) · Cultural Influences (ethnic/racial issues, immigration, first-generation American status, transracial adoption, privilege/oppression) · Academics/Career · Substance-use · Eating/Weight · Grief Loss · Dying
· Overall self-discovery
You are a unique person with personal experiences that make you who you are, so my therapeutic approach prioritizes acceptance, non-judgment, and growth by drawing from psychodynamic therapy and other evidenced-based practices with holistic/alternative frameworks.
I can’t wait to get to know you and see where you’ll go on your journey!

Hello and welcome! I’m Isiah Green. I am a Black Man with a passion for working with individuals and couples including Men/Women/Trans and Non-Binary clients ranging in age from 13-80. The choice to begin therapy is a testament to your strength and courage. The weight of your issues at times can be tough to carry; especially when it’s too heavy or no one has taught you how to bare it. Some of us have been taught to “be strong” and just “make it work”, and to never complain. However, this can leave you feeling overwhelmed or confused about your own emotions.
My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive space that will allow you to openly express your thoughts and feelings.
I specialize in assisting clients with relationship/couples’ issues, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, domestic violence, trauma, and grief.
My therapeutic approach includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused, and Gottman’s Couples Therapy. I believe that there is no straight path to fixing all our problems as we are all unique. I use all my knowledge and resources to assist every type of client I encounter.

My specialty is working with individuals who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, self-harm, self-esteem, ADHD behavioral, and development challenges.
My therapeutic approach includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Therapy, Solution Focused, and Motivational Interviewing.

Change is possible when we have the tools to create that change.
My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive space that will allow you to open and express your thoughts and feelings freely, with a mission to support you in achieving the life and things you desire.
A little bit about my background, I have worked in the field of counseling for many years helping adolescents and families manage behaviors, anxiety, and trauma-related issues.

Hello there and welcome! You have already begun a courageous step in your journey by seeking out counseling services. My name is Sarah and I am passionate to help individuals find their inner strengths as well as find ways to protect their inner peace. I have experience in working with a wide variety of ages ranging from eighteen to seventy-five. I have learned over the years as a training professional that mental health has no bias aganist: age, sex, gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and religion. Therefore, I am devoted to helping individuals create a path of hope, success, love, and growth.
My speciality is marriage, couples, and family counseling. When asked by others why I specifically chose this direction, I simply stated 'because in one way or another we all yearn for a relationship.' We seek relationships with others whether it be through friendship, romance, co-workers, family, within ourselves, or just a smile from a stranger walking down the street. I have found that if I can help facilitate mending a broken relationship, ending one peacefully, or working on strengthening the relationship in oneself, that is the greatest reward of all. I also have experience working with clients with anxiety, trauma, depression, psychosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
My therapeutic approach consists of Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person Centered Therapy, Mindfulness, Family Systems, and Rapid Resolution Therapy. It is also important to build a trusting therapeutic relationship that consists of empathy, a non-judgemental atmosphere, and a supportive space. By utilizing several different techniques it allows the capacity for each client to have their own individual needs met.
My background in the mental health field consists of obtaining my associates of arts in psychology from Citrus College, where I then went to Cal State Long Beach to obtain my Bachelors. From there I further pursued my masters of marriage, couples, and family counseling from Walden University. Since obtaining my masters, I have experience in private practice as well as a mental health hospital.
I look forward to helping you find your inner strengths, peace, and balance.

In a world that can feel increasingly isolating and hard, I hope to help you make space for connection and softness.
I came to my role as a therapist after working as an arts educator and artist for many years.

My passion is to work with adolescents and adults who have experienced anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, and post-traumatic stress.

I believe that we as human beings naturally strive to heal and survive. Like how a wound, uninterrupted, scabs over and becomes new skin, so does the human mind and spirit work to repair itself in the face of trauma.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” - Maya Angelou
I believe in practicing a holistic approach and treating the whole person when comes to counseling. Our mental health is affected by a combination of physical, psychological, and environmental experiences. Addressing all aspects of a client’s life, allows me to personalize treatment specific to the client’s needs rather than focusing on only treating symptoms of a deeper issue. Ultimately, I work to create a positive, warm, supportive, and constructive environment where clients feel free to say whatever is on their minds without fear of judgment. I strive to create an atmosphere in which clients feel accepted, learned, protected, and understood.
My areas of focus are anxiety, depression, grief & loss, and trauma. I specialize in working with adolescents, teens, and adults of all ages and CBT, DBT, and strengths-based therapy. Currently, I am working toward certification to provide EDMR.
A little bit about my background is I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Arizona State University. I am now pursuing my Master of Social Work degree from the same university specializing in Health and Behavioral Health. In my free time, I like reading, painting, watching sports, and cooking.

His aim in his work with couples is to provide evidenced-based tools and ways of thinking about things within the relationship which have been shown to work when applied effectively, not to point out who is right/wrong or referee arguments.

I'm DeAndrea. Most people call me, Andrea.
It is a pleasure to have you here! And, I am excited to help you create the life you desire.
Here's a little about me: I have dedicated my life and mission to help individuals eradicate stress, worry, fear, sadness, guilt, regret, depression, trauma, and relationship problems. I have spent the last 10 years learning and implementing the best and most effective services to help women, men, and teens from many different backgrounds, cultures and identities. Over the last 10 years, I have helped hundreds of individuals, just like yourself, overcome difficult life circumstances, create the life they desired and achieve happiness.
Therapy is a journey that starts with creating a unique, individualized treatment program tailored to meet your specific needs and geared towards helping you transcend your life. Yes, we use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) interventions, as well as Acceptance and Commitment interventions. However, true relief begins when you feel heard and understood as well as when you build real self-confidence and strong, supportive connections and relationships with others.
My goal is to create a warm and inviting space of radical acceptance and empathy, where you can express your deepest thoughts, suppressed feelings, pain and true desires . My goal is to facilitate growth beyond your past and beyond your pain. My goal is to offer fresh, new perspectives and support change within you. My aim is to help you overcome all of your challenges and become resilient, plus happy.
