Bonnie Mende


4 years of experience

Hello, My name is Bonnie. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California since 2005. I am also licensed as a Registered nurse and have worked in the field for 35 + years. I am a 58-year-old mom of 17-year-old twin daughters with plans for college in about a year. Yep, raising teenagers is no joke! Parenting has its fair share of hills and valleys. I have been married for 22 years. Are you finding that maintaining relationships is a struggle at times? Do you need someone to listen and hear you? I want to build rapport and understanding with each client. I have worked with clients struggling with a variety of issues and concerns. I have experience with clients who have experienced Anxiety, Depression, OCD, family and job stress, domestic violence, complex trauma, PTSD, child custody issues, teen issues, parent-child concerns, grief process, and people experiencing difficulties with substance abuse and use. My therapy is individualized according to what each client wants and needs. My goal is to align with my clients so they will experience being supported in their lives. I use therapy modalities that include: compassion-focused, solution-focused, multicultural, humanistic, strength-based, Christian, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, and dialectical therapies. My strengths lie in my ability to put people at ease. I am honest, straight-forward, down to earth, value authenticity, and enjoy getting to know all kinds of people while refraining from judgment. I enjoy music and I sing and play the piano. I enjoy my family, traveling, reading, and my dog Toto, and 2 cats. I look forward to meeting you. Let's talk!

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

Clients will feel heard, and will move toward finding their own answers over time. It is my job to support clients as they find their own solutions to struggles they may be having. At times I may make suggestions but I respect each client in their decisions.

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

My biggest strength is that I really care. I am empathic and authentic.
