It is time to actually make those changes you have been really wanting. You know your past is holding you back, you just aren't sure what to do about it. The pain from the past, the old family issues, the failed relationships - they are dragging you down. Sure you have supportive friends, but at this point, even they aren't sure what to say. If simply talking about it was helpful, you would be on your way by now. The next step, toward actual change, is to do something - and that is where therapy can help. Let's figure out why and how you are stuck so you can make changes.

I work with BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples. Specifically, the people that enjoy working with me are people who struggle with anxiety, shame, trauma, and are often their own worst critics. The people I work with often have difficulty knowing how to connect and explore their inner emotional experience (aka feeling the feelings). Because of that, they are needing of self-compassion, curiosity, and guidance.

As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I have been practicing for over 18-years and traditionally from a psychodynamic approach. However, over the years I have transitioned to a multifaceted approach incorporating a Psychodynamic modality with EMDR, Performance Psychology, and Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy (HCH). This integrated approach is a much deeper process of psychotherapy and is achieved through a relaxed state of consciousness. HCH embraces the concept of self-determination and the belief that every client contains, deep within their own subconscious mind, the key to their own individual health and healing.

When we experience suffering or relational conflict, we often feel alone and disconnected in our distress. Karina understands this, and holds deep compassion and empathy for those in such pain. She attunes to her clients with warmth and tenderness, genuinely caring for their emotional and relational well-being. Her approach is collaborative, inviting authenticity within emotion-focused processing. Working with the neuroscience of attachment theory and a psychodynamic lens, Karina provides a safe space for her clients to process and gain insight as they journey toward healing, integration, and growth.

Welcome to my practice. I have been in practice since 2007 and have been featured on ABC, NBC, and KCAL as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

Hello, my name is Tina Williams and I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, based in Southern California and working with clients statewide via telehealth. I work with families, couples, children, and individuals, to strengthen their relationships hoping to help them find a healthy perception of themselves, to be peaceful, whole, complete, and safe. I'm most comfortable working with clients that are struggling with depression, anxiety, low-self esteem, and intrusive thoughts. I value cognitive behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy, though there is no single approach that is the right one for every individual.

Journeys Counseling provides professional psychotherapy, vibrant living coaching, and spiritual direction to the community. Our work is interdenominational, serving clients from many different backgrounds, including those who have little or no religious affiliation. As a Christian organization we believe counseling should address the whole person and be respectful of people’s faith. Individual’s beliefs are both an important part of their lives and a valuable resource when experiencing distress. Counseling should assist in developing those resources further. Often, people lack support systems that help deal with personal problems.

Struggling with addiction & feel rehab isn’t an option? Want to adjust your relationship with a substance instead of being told you must quit? Leaving your family, job, school or responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy & on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard-feelings of anxiety, guilt, & shame. You may have tried cutting back or stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.
