23 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hello! I am Dr. Efrain Zepeda. I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Social Worker. In the past 23 years of working as a mental health professional, one important lesson I have learned is that the most powerful therapeutic intervention is found in the interpersonal experience that occurs in the client-therapist relationship. Together we can analyze the past to co-create a new meaning to achieve healing. I strongly believe that therapy is not about labeling or judging, but rather about personal discovery.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Throughout these years I have worked with individuals, families, and couples using an empathetic and compassionate approach. This approach has allowed them to pave the path toward self-growth, self-agency, and self-efficacy. I specialize in attachment dynamics, trauma-based conditions, and behavioral as well as cognitive challenges.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

Additionally, I am a Certified Sexual Compulsion Specialist, I implement behavioral interventions to decrease compulsions and maladaptive behaviors. I am also a certified Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Practitioner who has also been trained to use Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

One of my strengths is the ability to combine interpersonal therapeutic skills with emotionally-focused treatment to increase awareness and empathy.
