Alana Gallardo is not currently accepting new clients.
Do you ever feel like you are hitting a wall when you are talking to your family and friends? Do you feel like no one understands the thoughts and feelings you are struggling with? I am dedicated to nurturing the hope, healing, and resiliency you need to not only survive, but to thrive through serious life challenges. I will take an engaging, empathic, and directive approach to empower you and your loved ones to thrive together.
I specialize in Emotionally Focused Couples therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and am currently in the process of becoming trained and certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). I completed training week 1 of EMDR in October 2017.
I have often heard strangers I have just met tell me that they feel like sharing something about themselves with me that they have never told anyone about. With that said, I consider it an honor and a privilege to be entrusted with your private internal struggles.
