Psychotherapy is a gift to yourself with the ultimate goal to gain the tools you need to have better relationships and flourish within yourself in a way that you feel proud, satisfied, and at peace with the life that you build as you age and look back on how you broke free from the feelings that were holding you back.
Fear of going to therapy may hold you back from taking the first step. No need to dread, you can expect a supportive and welcoming place where at the same time your therapist will engage you in the process of discovering new ways to deal with challenges.
Because no two people are the same and we all have different experiences in life, our approach is diverse and may take from different modalities our therapist are trained on. Our therapist will meet you where you currently are in your life so you can feel comfortable in the process. Our team of therapist are trained in several evidence-based treatments approved by the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health that focus on the healing of trauma, anxiety, depression, relational issues, parenting support, substance abuse, and many more mental health conditions.

What to Expect On Your First Session
During this initial session, we will have the opportunity to work together to begin to understand what is really going on in your world. Your therapist will get to know you by asking questions about your unique concerns. She'll help you identify what you want to work on in therapy and together you will start to develop a plan that will assist you to reach your goals. This will individualized your experience and have a sense that your personal story is well understood and in return, you can feel confident that you are in the right place.
