Hello! I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in working with teens, adults, and families. I enjoy working together with my clients and listening to what they want to achieve. I support my clients by providing them with the skills they need to manage their daily struggles and ultimately reach their goals. My approach to therapy is person-centered as it allows clients to gain their own understanding of their experiences to help them with their personal growth. I use evidence-based practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and mindfulness techniques to support my clients in the healing process. I like to individualize each of my client's needs, and there is a vast assortment of many other approaches and tools that I use.

My name is Dr. Isabella Vidriales, a Doctor of Counseling Psychology. I also practice as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California, Arizona, and Nevada. My clinical approach is mainly trauma-informed as well as person centered, solution focused, and eclectic approaches customized to match the needs of my clients. Trauma is more prevalent than we think and its impact on an individual’s overall well-being can have devastating results. My holistic approach allows me the opportunity to explore and understand individuals as a whole. I work on empowering others so they can rebuild a strong foundation to fall back on when there are setbacks in life. I am passionate with helping clients on their journey of self exploration and personal growth. I am here to support you through this difficult process and to provide you with the beneficial tools to help you overcome this challenging moment. Life is a journey of our own and sometimes it leads us to a path of unfamiliar territory. Unexpected life events and circumstances often trigger our unresolved insecurities, fears, as well as relive past traumas. You don’t have to walk this path alone. I look forward to serving you. Together we got this!

Hello, I am Jennifer. I am a licensed therapist with over 25 years of experience supporting people of all ages through various transitions and challenges. I offer a unique approach to mental health that integrates clinical therapy with moderate physical exercise in the great outdoors. I focus on helping people with anxiety, depression, life transitions, stress/burnout, infertility and alcohol misuse while increasing nourishing habits such as exercise, sleep, nutrition, and other practices that reduce symptoms and calm the nervous system. Have you ever wished you could get in-person therapy without having to sit in an office with the therapist? Do you feel too busy to schedule both therapy and exercise into one day and wish the two could be combined? If so, then "walk and talk" could be a good fit for you. I offer the opportunity to receive counseling or coaching while outside in nature and moving your body. Research demonstrates that both exercise and spending time outdoors in sunlight and green spaces provides a reduction in symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and stress while improving mood overall. My unique "walk and talk" method addresses all three aspects of healing and growth: physical, psychological, and spiritual. Have you found yourself wondering if you are drinking too much and/or too often? Are you tired of experiencing low energy, anxiety, depression, disrupted sleep, sugar cravings, etc. and you wish you had a coach to support you as you navigate a new way of living alcohol free? If you are sober curious, I am here to help!

Hi, I'm Wendy Mark, LMFT, your Chronic Pain Therapist in Los Angeles, California. Are you feeling stuck in chronic pain and doctors have told you there isn’t anything more they can do? Have your activities decreased so much that you are no longer doing the things that you used to enjoy? Whether you have been dealing with pain for 6 months or 50 years, we can work together to help you decrease your pain levels and get you back to living a life filled with joy in a reasonably short amount of time. In my own journey through pain, I tried every treatment possible to get rid of the pain and I was desperate to find a treatment that worked. I was lost. Then I discovered Pain Reprocessing Therapy, and it was a total game changer for me! While my passion is working with clients with chronic pain, I have also had over 15 years of success in working with a wide range of mental health issues including ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, relationship issues, school problems, trauma and PTSD, and women's issues. I enjoy empowering clients to reach their full potential.

Hi, I'm Monica! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and have been involved in social work for eight years. Most of my career has been helping children, parents, and families in child welfare. Perhaps you know exactly what issue is popping up for you, but you might not! I am here to help you become more self-aware, build self-esteem, and bridge the gap between unwelcomed behaviors and the thoughts leading there. I am keen at picking up on patterns and relaying them back to you, which you may or may not have been aware of. I do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Also, while I'm able to meet you where you're at in life, I believe that you're coming to therapy for a reason, which is typically to grow in an area of your life. I may push you to think about your growth, which can be new and uncomfortable. I am always seeking to understand and hear you; I do not judge or make assumptions about you. ** I have additional availability, please reach out to me to see if we can match a good time. **

Hello there, I'm Susie. I'm a bilingual therapist who speaks English and Spanish. I have specialized training in Art Therapy and EMDR. In my work with individuals and groups, I am compassionate, collaborative, culturally sensitive and creative. I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. As humans, we create patterns and behaviors that may no longer be helpful for us when navigating relationships in our life. This can feel stressful, helpless, and anxiety provoking. Having space to acknowledge and talk about what is happening in your life can help relieve the intensity of those feelings and can help create new patterns and behaviors. *Currently ONLY taking adult clients (18+).

I am a curious, authentic, and a very human therapist. I love working with people who want to do the work. I am here to provide a safe space that will foster vulnerability and growth. Therapy is so hard sometimes. I am here to make that pill a little easier to swallow. We fall into times where we feel stuck, don't have sufficient self-love, or just have ran out of hope. I am here to support you in getting unstuck, changing your perspective, increasing your self-love, and remind you that there is hope. Just because we don't see the light at the end of the tunnel, it doesn't mean it's not there. In the nature of being authentic: If you're looking for a "cookie-cutter therapist", I am not the one. If you are looking for heavy homework/worksheets, I am not the one. I am very human. At times, I cuss. Because, at times, life just fucking sucks. I am very open to feedback: I have the mental health portion of my job down, but you are the expert in you.
