I believe as humans we desire to connect and align with our true selves and I am committed to providing a space where folks can be who they are, explore their identity, and work through difficult emotions and life experiences. Life can bring on unexpected challenges and worries that make it difficult for us to be the best versions of ourselves. I believe you are not defined by your past experiences or childhood traumas, but rather how you choose to heal and forge your own path. My goal is to support my clients with achieving their version of happiness through a healing and non judgemental therapeutic space.

Counseling doesn't have to be scary. Throughout our lives we all experience difficult situations that need a second set of eyes and ears to offer a different perspective. Since friends and family are unable to be objective, that is where the counselor's role comes into play. Whether you are having family conflict, relationship issues with your significant other, or just need someone to talk to because everything just seems to be falling apart, I am here for you.
The evidence is clear that one of the most important components in having positive results from counseling is the therapeutic relationship. By collaborating together and having open and honest dialogue, we can make positive changes and develop tools that will help you for the rest of your life. This is a team effort and we are in this together.
I am experienced in delivering both Psychotherapy as well as Pastoral Counseling and I like to focus my care on the client's needs. Being highly flexible and adaptable makes it easy for me to tailor my care to what your personal needs are. Let's team up, and do this together.
I provide therapy to people age 13 and up in Armenian and English - and I’m passionate about supporting individuals, couples, and families with the following issues:
I practice the following therapy models:
Hello and welcome! I'm Rose.
I am a therapist dedicated to delivering culturally sensitive and nurturing support. My belief is that everyone should have access to a secure and supportive environment for navigating life's intricate challenges.
My therapeutic style is anchored in the recognition and appreciation of the diverse cultural influences and life experiences that shape us all. I work with individuals, couples, children, and families from all backgrounds. I value the unique narratives, experiences, and challenges that each client brings to our therapy sessions. Additionally, I prioritize collaborative work with clients, aiming to foster a therapy partnership in the pursuit of well-being and personal growth.
As a trauma-informed, attachment-focused therapist, I'm trained in several evidence-based modalities, including:
• EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
• AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy)
• EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy)
I also incorporate mindfulness, play therapy, and art therapy to help clients access their emotions and explore vulnerable aspects of themselves through a gender-responsive lens.
About me: I have a BA in Art History from UCLA and an MA in Couple and Family Therapy from The California School of Professional Psychology. When I'm not working, I love spending time at the beach, knitting, and traveling.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me! I'm looking forward to working with you.
Hello there, my name is Jessica Rivas. Welcome and thank you for taking the first step toward healing. Life brings many challenges and triumphs, but we do not have to go through it alone. As your counselor, I will work with you to help you identify the negative patterns and behaviors that may be impacting your life, and together we can help you achieve the changes and/or the healing you desire. The journey may be difficult, and sometimes, even a little uncomfortable but I am here to collaborate with you and support you through the entire process.
I believe that even when things become difficult, we can overcome anything as long as we are willing to put in the effort to work through it. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive space that will allow you the opportunity to dig deep and express yourself without judgment. I am passionate about mental health and helping others and I have made it my personal mission in life to break the stigma surrounding therapy and mental health. Because your mental and emotional health are just as important as your physical health and you are not alone.

As a therapist, it is my goal to provide a comforting, empathetic, and non-judgmental setting that will provide you with a safe place to speak about what is impacting your daily life.
My background includes working with Transitional-age youth (18-25) and adults in specialty mental health community outpatient settings for the past 4 years.

Much can happen in life that we never saw coming and/or that never wanted for ourselves. But I am here because I believe that in spite of this, there is still a greater hope. As your counselor, I will collaborate with you in your journey to regain and nourish that hope as you seek healing, clarity, and change. Together, we will establish a safe environment to explore the issues that are consuming you, set goals toward change, learn more about yourself and your values, find clarity, and establish with the tools you need to keep going.
I like to incorporate a person-centered approach and use interventions from different modalities, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. I also have experience with faith-based counseling.
About me: I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree of Social Work with a focus on US/Mexico Border Issues and a Master Degree of Social Work. I have worked in the field of social work by helping individuals and families of individuals going through chronic illness, grief and loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, caregiving, communication issues, relationship issues, financial stressors, burn-out, and self-care. My experience has been with adults, ages 18 – 80.
Outside the clinical field, I enjoy spending time with family, reading, learning more about my faith and continuing to nourish my hope, hiking, taking walks, visiting the beach, having good ice cream, and exercising.
I would be very honored to start this new journey with you to regain the hope, strength, skills, and clarity that you are seeking.

My passion is to help individuals heal from trauma.
By creating an open, safe, collaborative, engaging, and supportive environment the process of healing from trauma can begin.

I would be glad and honored to welcome you, to assist you on your path toward self-discovery, growth, learning, healing, and recovery.
We all come from different walks of life, and our experiences can shape who we are and how we connect to others around us. Sharing our story in a therapeutic space can heal us from childhood/generational trauma and make us feel seen and heard. Although our past can mold who we are, we are not defined by it. My commitment and passion are to support the development of youth and young adults (ages, 13-30) struggling with an array of issues.
I provide a safe space to discuss, explore, and address difficult issues and life events. I offer a nurturing, empathetic, non-judgmental, and confidential space. You are the expert in your life, and I am here to provide tools, hope, and support. I offer individual therapy that is strength-based and is rooted in Narrative Therapy, Solution Focus, Gestalt Therapy, Mindfulness, and Trauma Informed.
I specialize in working with BIPOC communities in the following areas of focus and approaches: stress, anxiety, family conflict, depression, trauma/PTSD, school issues, criminal issues, self-esteem, career challenges, burnout, identity, intimacy, and relationship dynamics.

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 goal during a therapeutic process is to create a safe and supportive environment that empowers you to create the change and growth you desire.

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 against: 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 specialty 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.

I believe that we have everything we need inside of us and it’s the inner work that heals us so that we can align with our higher self and embody our fullest potential. I also believe that it’s through the inevitable difficulties and challenges that motivate us to make the necessary changes in our lives that lead to self transformation.
My goal is to guide you to that place of healing and personal liberation within you so that you may experience harmony in all your life’s affairs. I utilize an integrative approach with therapeutic interventions such as (CBT, psychodynamic) and holistic practices such as (mindfulness, breath work, sound healing, self-care) to support your overall wellness. Together we will explore and identify unproductive behaviors, limiting thoughts/beliefs and replace them with healthier coping skills.
My personal experiences and professional background have been divinely set up to facilitate my own healing journey and have equipped me with the ability to support yours, especially if you have concerns regarding: depression/anxiety, relationships, spirituality/religion, childhood trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, overall self discovery and sexuality/gender identity.
A little bit about me, I earned my BA in Psychology from Cal State Long Beach and my Masters in Social Work from Cal State Dominguez Hills. I am trained in sound healing and breathwork. In my free time, I engage in experiences that bring me joy such as being a part of wellness communities, spending time in nature, traveling, practicing yoga, reading, and engaging in self-care.
