Hi there, I'm Alicia. Are you feeling lost or stuck in some aspect of your life and finding it hard to move forward? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? With your permission, I help to hold the container for deeper exploration and healing. I am a trauma-based therapist trained in EMDR, Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). I believe that each of us possesses an internal source of wisdom that can be cultivated through psychotherapy, psychedelic medicines, meditation practices, yoga and other connecting practices that link the brain, body and spirit. My therapeutic approach has a foundation of mindfulness and compassion, curiosity and respect. I often use EMDR as an evidence-based approach to working with trauma and other challenges. I am sensitive to the impact of one's social, physical and cultural environment as well as systems of oppression. Clients say my approach is warm, relational, collaborative, strengths-based and trauma-informed. I cannot do the work for you, but I can help you along the way, and it is truly an honor and a joy for me.

Welcome! I am a first-gen, bilingual LMFT (English/Spanish) based in the Los Angeles area. My work is rooted in empowering women who are called to heal generational patterns and traumas. I love working with first-gen Latinas and Xicanas who struggle with setting boundaries, communicating their needs, and experiencing difficult life transitions. I practice through a holistic person-centered lens that integrates ancestral knowledge and culture to assist in the healing of your mind, body, heart and spirit. I offer space for those who want to feel safe, seen, and heard so that you can be your authentic self. I also utilize EMDR therapy to help assist in processing events that are keeping you stuck. Once your first appointment is scheduled you will receive intake forms. All intake forms need to be completed 24 hours before your appointment date or your appointment will need to be rescheduled. *My practice is focused primarily on treating adults who identify as female as well as being a welcoming space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I do not currently treat cisgender heterosexual males, children or adolescents, and court mandated clients.

Have you ever asked yourself, "why don't I feel good about myself and my choices in life?" I want to help you explore those feelings and get to the root cause so we can reveal the parts of you that feel alive and whole again. Do you remember the hopes and dreams you had as a child? What happened to those dreams? It could be life events or circumstances, some that were out of your control and some that you made consciously or unconsciously. If you have experienced trauma, sexual trauma, this can contribute to your mental, physical, and emotional struggles. Sexual trauma is not easy to discuss, as it is a taboo topic, and you may not find you can share your story with your friends and family. Secrecy is part of the toxic shame that often leads to issues with self-esteem, relationships, intimacy, and other behavioral problems. Every person has the answers within themselves to reveal the shiny pearl in the bed of a sandy oyster. I can help you if you are ready to do the work of personal growth and healing.

Hello! My name is Yvette Weeks, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). My therapeutic approach is centered on fostering meaningful connections, emotional well-being, and personal growth. I work with individuals, children/adolescents, and families, focusing on a wide range of issues, including relationship difficulties, anxiety, communication challenges, behavior issues, parenting challenges, and life transitions. I'm committed to helping others through their challenges to discover their strengths, learn new techniques, and create positive change. I believe that everyone deserves to live a fulfilling and emotionally healthy life- in whatever way that looks like to the individual person or family. As a therapist who has personally experienced trauma, depression, and anxiety, I deeply understand the challenges and feelings that accompany these struggles. It is not always easy to seek support from others (believe me, I took a very long time to reach out to someone), and knowing that I can play a part in helping others feel better and do better, drives me to continuously learn and provide the best possible care. It is an honor to be a therapist, and I am dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those I have the opportunity to work with.

Welcome! My name is Albania Alegria and I am a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I identify as Latina and am bilingual in Spanish and English. I feel honored in supporting people to get unstuck and build their inner-healer inside them. The modalities I use require a slower pace where the client is an active participant inside and outside of sessions. We focus more on body-oriented practices, and minimal talking, so that your body gets a chance to heal in a slow and sustainable way (where talk-therapy can delay and sometimes not help with symptoms). I value co-creating, quality presence, respect, consciousness, radical responsibility, compassion, and warmth. ***Please note: Clients will be kindly referred out to specialized providers that do not align with the population I currently work with. I am NOT a good fit for historical or present conditions like: self-harm, risk of suicide, addiction of any kind, body dysmorphia/eating disorders history of current, personality disorders, depression, relationship violence, Perpetrator of violence or abuse (e.g child abuse, domestic violence, animal abuse, etc), and Personality Disorders.

You have always followed the norm to not stand out. You feel safe when you are in the background and blending in. Judgment and criticism have always been a part of your life. You are struggling with feelings of guilt and shame, and it has impeded you from living a life of authenticity- who you are at your core, but the fear of people leaving stops you. This fear has caused you to have your boundaries tested and crossed- leading you to bottle up your emotions for self-preservation. There has not been a time where you have not felt fear, anxiety, overwhelmed, and stressed. You are exhausted and want to begin to live your life for yourself. You want to honor the different identities that make you an individual. You are tired of this battle within telling you to ease everyone else’s pain over your own. You do not want to hide anymore and are ready to make choices for yourself without second-guessing. I’m Ligia, a BIPOC & LGBTQ+ affirming therapist. Specializing in BIPOC adults who struggle with identity formation & navigating feelings around guilt and shame. My role is walking with you through this process; not ahead or behind. To help you live a life as who you want to be and not told to be. Building your self-confidence, self-compassion, and self-awareness.

Thank you and welcome******* @@@@@@@Hola y bienvenidos (Hablo Español perfectamente) Por favor escoge cita a la hora ( 2, 3, o 4) y no a la media hora (2:30, 3:30 etc) ya que no puedo acomodarlas en este momento. Las citas los Sabdos son iniciales solamente. Las demas citas seran agendadas durante los dias de semana por las tardes. Gracias y Bienvenidos. @@@@@@@ I am so glad you are reaching out for some assistance with your challenges. My name is Blanca, and I can provide you with some feedback and objectivity when it comes to dealing with everyday emotional challenges. I am proud to have been certified in cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat depression, anxiety, and trauma by the Los Angeles County Dept of Mental Health through the Beck Institute. This manner of therapy challenges recurring negative thoughts that tend to influence mood and behaviors. I obtained my Doctorate in Social Work in 2022 from Tulane University, Louisiana, to further understand society and its effects on all of us. The depth of this degree allows me to fully understand other dynamics affecting the "masses", in other words, a macro perspective. I also supervise social workers needing to meet licensure hours. I am originally from Argentina, and I speak fluent Spanish. I came to the US when I was very young and remember struggling until I found my "space" in a new country with a new culture. I have two grown sons who, I feel, are amazing. We are very close and talk every day. I also have two cats and a small dog I adore! You might meet them over telehealth soon :) I hope to be of assistance with your challenges.

Hi my name is Brenda. I have worked in the social work field for the past 10 years and specialize in working with individuals, children, and families, in multiple settings such as in community based mental health agencies and community clinics. I have worked hand in hand with those struggling with depression, anxiety, and interpersonal struggles. We are currently living in very unprecedented times in which old patterns of behaviors are no longer suting us and it is time to take more accountability and control of our lives. Taking the first step towards making a positive change can sometimes be the most painful yet liberating thing a person can do. I am here to provide support and positive coping skills during these challenging times.

Hi there, I'm Christina. I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist that has been in practice for over 10 years. During our sessions, we'll work at your pace and where you are at emotionally. Creating a safe space filled with compassion and kindness is important to me, plus a mixture of mental health interventions. We'll set a goal and work towards achieving that goal. Don't worry, we don't have to delve deep into your past if you are not ready. Sometimes there is the need to process what you are going through at the moment and have someone to be there and listen and that's okay too. We can start there.

Welcome to my (safe) space!!! I'm a bit of a Fred Roger's enthusiast, so let me start by saying thank you for being you!! My most important value is to treat people with love and respect, no matter their background, no matter their circumstances!! I believe we all deserve it!!! My name is Jose-Santos Xavier Orozco, feel free to call me whatever makes you comfortable!!! Life to me is about being flexible, or like Bruce Lee said, like water, being able to bend and reshape whenever needed, while maintaining strength and purpose!!! I am a 36 year old male therapist who was born in SF and raised in Los Angeles! My early years were spent in the foster care system until I was placed into a permanent family at the age of 6. I am of mixed Ethnic background and have experienced culture/ identity difficulties since as long as I can remember. Life has naturally brought me to get a degree in Social work and work in this field. I would definitely consider myself a wounded warrior, although I feel like my injuries have been pretty well tended to by now. Learning to accept and love yourself has been my greatest achievement (on-going achievement) and I promise that when you get there too, it can be yours as well!!! I prefer working with ADULT population; I have very limited experience working with kids. Thank you
