Hi! I’m Diana I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over ten years of experience working with people of all ages and backgrounds. I am based in Los Angeles, California and I work with clients statewide via tele-health. My approach to therapy is rooted in connecting you with yourself. I use a variety of treatment methods to help you gain a better understanding of your thoughts, choices, and emotions, as well as develop the tools to sustain a lifetime of well-being. My aim is to provide a therapeutic environment that is safe, comfortable, and malleable to your needs. In therapy, I will work collaboratively with you to help you explore your narrative, expand your perspective, and build skills that will help guide you to your personal goals. I have found that my approach is best suited for adults; often those suffering from anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship issues, environmental stressors, or unmet needs. With symptoms presenting in a variety of ways, I can help you build awareness of those symptoms, create tools to manage them, and most importantly, help you process your experiences in order to find balance and inner peace.

Do you want the best quality therapy from the comfort of your home? My name is Jordan Allan and I am a fully Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with 10+ years of extensive experience providing mental health services to individuals from all walks of life. Throughout my career, I have successfully been providing effective psychotherapy to clients who would not otherwise have access to services if they were required to go to an office and am here to provide you services at your convenience. Originally, I was born and lived most of my life in London, England where I was fortunate to receive the highest education at the best schools. Later I moved to California where I enrolled in Graduate School at The University of Southern California. I obtained my Masters's and PhD degrees both Summa Cum Laude and with full honors with academic and research-based emphasis on psychiatric practice, integrated care approaches and providing clinical psychotherapy mindful of each client's culture and self-identity. I dedicated myself to providing mental health services to the most at-risk on the streets of Skid Row, out of the JWCH Institute. I worked as part of a highly expert team of professionals to improve and advocate for the lives of all adults in need through psychotherapy primarily. After several years, I chose to gain experience working with children and their families did so by joining Wellnest (FKA LACGC). Working again in-field, I provided mental health services to children and teens while also coordinating with parents and other family members. I have experience and continue to work to provide various assessments, treatment plans, psychotherapy and more via Tele-therapy to meet with adults in a variety of settings remotely. I truly believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion and I make it a priority to do so in every client encounter and session, I always have. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique, specific needs to address how your current symptoms affect your health, relationships, job or any other major part of your life. It takes courage to seek out help to address your mental health and to take the first steps towards a more fulfilling life where your symptoms no longer affect your quality of life. I will be here for you every step of the way. I am looking forward to providing you or your loved ones with the help they need.

Hi, I'm Celina. We all face things in our lives that can be overwhelming. Whether we are challenged with traumas from our past or dealing with stressors of today, our stories matter. The good news is that we don’t have to face this alone. Taking this step isn't always easy, but it's worth it. I have dedicated many years to giving back to my community and have worked in a variety of settings which has allowed me to serve a diverse population. During my career, I have been honored to support the LGBT community, work as a therapist in a community clinic, and provided support to those experiencing tragedy during my time as a 911 crisis counselor. Sitting in a patrol car each day has also given me insight into what our first responders face on a daily basis. Throughout my work, both personally and professionally, I learned that we all have a story and each story matters. Whether you are challenged with relationships, trauma, depression, grief, anxiety, or facing other life situations, I will provide you with a safe space to share. We all hold the power to change our habits, patterns and to gain insight into why we do the things we do. My goal is to walk beside you in your journey toward wellness so that when you leave, you feel empowered, healthy and confident for your future.

I am client centered maintaining the philosophy that every client no matter their age is the expert at their existence and has the ability to heal.

I specialize in working with teens and young adults through difficulties with daily life challenges such as interpersonal relationships, family conflicts, life transitions, intimate partner challenges, and academic and career-related stress. I use a humanistic approach to my therapeutic style to explore what works best for clients. Some of the basic orientations I utilize are Mindfulness, Person-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Narrative Therapy techniques. The therapy journey helps individuals understand thoughts, feelings, reactions, and responses, aiding with healing and growth. This can lead to a life that feels more grounded, joyful, and meaningful. I have been working as a therapist for over 10 years. I have experience working as an intensive outpatient therapist providing individual therapy, group therapy, and case management. I have experience working with children, teens, and their families as an Elementary, Middle, and High School special education and general education therapist.
