I have worked in educational settings, healthcare settings, and clinical settings. I was born in Corcoran and raised in Central California. I currently reside in Rocklin CA, and enjoy horseshoe pitching, long walks, the ocean, and family and friends. My historical area of focus ranges from challenges in school to overcoming childhood traumas, depression, anxiety, social isolation, and conflict within family units. These are common things that we all face as we grow and evolve into our adult selves.

*Specializes in working with Adults ONLY* Do you have counterproductive behaviors that create more issues than they solve? Do you recognize maladaptive thought patterns that disrupt and hinder you from reaching your goals? Only by taking the time to explore your inner-workings, can you begin to identify and eradicate what doesn’t work by developing strategies & moving towards what does, allowing a healthy authentic adult version of you to emerge. I personally believe it's the struggles we endure and the obstacles we overcome that build our character. It was my own personal traumas and difficulties experienced earlier in life & adolescence which initially started me on this path of whole person wellness and recovery. As a result, I've spent decades not just improving myself, but helping others reach their full potential as well. I've been a personal trainer, competitive kickboxer, consider myself a Christian Buddhist Wiccan (which I can explain- I swear), sound healer, breath work instructor, among others. As a therapist, I utilize a cumulation of MI, CBT/REBT, DBT, ACT, Schema Therapy, and EMDR, depending on client's needs and goals. Congratulations on taking the first step (or continuing) on your wellness journey!

Hello, I’m Wanda Earl, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in California with over 15 years of experience providing mental health services to adolescents, adults, and families primarily with diverse backgrounds. As passionate as I am about helping people, I’m even more compelled to help people help themselves. I believe in providing a safe space that encourages unfiltered communication and self-reflection, both of which I believe are vital for one to heal and foster growth. I acknowledge that life is precious but at times hard and a professional’s assistance with helping navigate through those challenges may be needed. Just like a scale, life has its ups and downs, and only the sturdiness of the scale (the scale being the individual) can determine its ability to carry the weight that is placed on it. If you feel that I can potentially be of service, please check my availability.

Healing through self-discovery is a powerful means to uncovering your full potential. The relationship starts with yourself. The healing journey is defined by you creating a life you want to live as I work as an aid, the vessel to support you. Are you struggling with complex trauma, chronic stress, anxiety, depression, or life transitions? Is your body storing pain? Are you questioning your purpose, career, and relationships? Are you searching for balance? Is work or family obligations stressing you? Are you feeling disorganized, or are criticizing thoughts getting in your way? Have you held onto a dysfunctional narrative of who you are? Welcome. I am glad you are here. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California, Florida, & Utah. I offer video teletherapy. A little about me. I am a wife, mother of two young adults, and a free-spirited traveler. I know what it is like to feel stuck, yearning for that something. Connection is critical in our search for support.

Choosing a therapist can be challenging and confusing and one might ask, what does therapy involve? From my experience Therapy involves developing a very special relationship between a professionally licensed practitioner called a therapist and one or more people seeking to collaboratively define and achieve constructive change. This relationship is referred to as the therapeutic bond and is considered one of the most important parts of successful therapy. As such our first step in therapy is, from day one, to form that bond by establishing a trusting, non-shaming environment where any child, adolescent, person, couple, or family will feel safe and sense the therapist is on their side, listens and understands. Therapy on my behalf will involve empathy, genuineness, and mindful acceptance while we collaboratively establish therapeutic changes / goals you feel are both desired and are ready to achieve. Our sessions will involve the language of change as perceived by you the client(s), and constructive finding of solutions. You will be able to present your story without fear of rejection or shame. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families, and am very effective with middle schoolers, adolescents young adults, and people working in the stressful world of business, hi tech and active military service members, and veterans. During my time as a therapist I have built a reputation as caring, effective and someone who has my client’s best interests at heart. If you feel a connection or that contacting me could be of value, I would be very happy to hear from you. Until such time I wish you the very best in your quest. Sincerely, Mike Michael Durrigan Ca. LMFT (131635)

Cross-training in Clinical as well as Counseling Psychology with state & national Addiction Certification Counseling allows for a flexible, integrative approach to a range of issues; mood disorders (depression/anxiety), relationship, occupational, grief and loss, and health-related concerns. For most, a practical, supportive, solution-based approach is the best way to work through more immediate, real-life problems, e.g., interpersonal conflict or chronic symptoms, but, depth-psychology is a good approach for those who may be seeking deeper meaning.
