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.

Hi! I',m Johanna, a first-gen, Latina, bilingual thera-mom and I specialize in working with women in the early seasons of the motherhood and adulthood. These seasons can be heavy and beautiful, joyous and anxiety-provoking, exciting and stressful. Unfortunately, many of us weren't taught how to navigate these emotions and instead learned to "just push through, push it down and be strong." I am here to remind you that there is strength in facing your real feelings and asking for help. In therapy, I can help you process the emotions that are part of the journey and help you learn skills to cope with the stress so that you can show up grounded in what matters most to you, with self-compassion and grace because you are human and perfection is a myth. I can provide you a safe space to be yourself and put down everything you're carrying so that you can identify what you need to heal to break cycles of anxiety, burnout and generational trauma, for yourself and your kids. There is power and courage in healing and I would love to join you on this journey. If you want to learn more about me & my approach, check out my website www.jleebre.com - If you are interested in services, please set up a consultation call first to ensure we are a good fit. If an intake is scheduled without a consultation call first, I will reach out to hold that consultation prior. Best!

You are grieving, heartbroken, or lost. You didn’t get the job, you broke up with your partner, someone important has died. Grief is normal and exquisite and painful. You want to talk about it, but you don’t want to burden anyone. Here you have permission to be a burden. To be messy, seen, repetitive, and stuck. I’ll meet you there, but won’t leave you there. We work towards managing the unimaginable. Reckoning with the stories we tell and the paths lost, in order to reconcile with where we truly are. There you will find possibility. New stories, new love, new hope. There you will find the courage to start again.

Welcome, for the past 14 years I have supported clients with processing through difficult thoughts and emotions associated with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, childhood complex trauma, adult traumatic experiences, self-esteem issues, grief and loss of persons or pets as well as many other concerns. I have supported clients with gaining insight into themselves and their circumstances/life events as to gain perspective, heal and live life more settled and balanced. I value using a variety of therapy modalities, such as Psychodynamic, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral (DBT), Compassion Based Therapy, Mindfulness and Somatic Therapies. I also come from a personal background of trauma and loss, which has informed my work as a therapist. I have gained first hand experience of how transformation and healing can happen with the right supports and guidance. I hope to bring both my academic understandings and learnings as well as real life experience to our work together to enable you to learn, grow and thrive in the ways you are hoping for.

Hi! I'm Estela, Do you ever feel stuck or just have too much going on? Are you in a transition, or having trouble coping with life stressors? A high number of people experience these things in different ways; often times, they just need a reminder of who they are to help discover their own potential to move forward in life. I describe myself as gentle, non-judgmental, and empathic. I Iike to meet my clients where they are. Together, we will identify your strengths, explore your emotions, thoughts, relationships and experiences and come up with coping strategies you can use to feel more confident moving forward in life. I know it can be intimidating even making the first appointment, but it is through your first step that success will come.

How have you been doing lately...really? I often find that we ask this question a lot to one another and often respond with a surface "fine". But we aren't always fine and this is why therapeutic support is so essential to all of us at various times in our life like any other essential personal maintenance that we receive on a regular basis. In my practice I enjoy helping people find their voice to speak to whatever obstacles are in their life with truth and personal power. Accessing this voice can transform lives and help people who feel alone, sad, anxious more connected as they are first connecting with themselves. I enjoy working with various modalities in my practice and operate from the belief that spirit in conjunction with physical and mental well being is a more holistic course of action to help people on their healing journeys!

I started helping those who are seeking to up-level their experiences and shine as their true and authentic selves in 2019. My journey first started in residential treatment facilities where I held space for those in early recovery from substance use disorders. This population ranged from men's only, women's only and LGBTQ+ Many of these individuals also struggled with anxiety, depression, trauma and eating disorders. I have also had the opportunity to work with adolescents at risk of sex trafficking. This work is extremely rewarding as the clients are at an age where they are most influential and willing. I am a deeply spiritual person and practice in the study of yoga and meditation and participate in somatic healings such as Kundalini Light Intergration (KALI) and breathworks. I am also a level two Reiki practitioner (training to become a master) and a certified personal trainer. When I am not holding space for healing, I enjoy being in the outdoors, surfing, climbing, reading and cooking nutritious and fun to eat meals. I hope to continue the journey of providing a safe space for individuals where healing can occur for years to come. I offer sessions both early in the morning (5am - 7am) and later in the evening (6pm - 9pm) to accommodate those who work nine to five or those who just prefer early morning or evening therapy sessions.

Few, if any, of us grow up in an environment that perfectly fits our needs. As we grow, we adapt to our surroundings in ways that may run counter to our vitality, health, and happiness. By exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological patterns that shape our lives, we are able to develop choice in whether to engage in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. As a psychotherapist, I provide a curious, and compassionate presence, lending my heart and mind to this process of self-exploration and self-understanding.

I am trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, applied behavioral analysis, neuropsychology, and psychoanalysis. My interventions tend to be inclusive and can involve one, or all of these methods depending upon what would be most beneficial for you. The fields of humanistic and Adlerian psychology have also greatly influenced my approach as a therapist. As a result, when I am asked what my theoretical orientation is, I identify myself as “eclectic.” My experience has taught me that there is no singular “best” approach. Only what would be best for the individual seeking help. The benefit of my diversified training is that I am able to cater my interventions to meet your unique and specific needs.
