My name is Megan Jimenez and at Sunny Hills Behavioral Health I focus my treatment on the needs of each individual client. I have experience with young children as well as adolescents that respond well to my varying modalities in therapy. I use creativity and diversity in my therapy to allow children and adolescents to stay focused and make positive progress. I have had training in ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) in my work with those on the Autism Spectrum and have also gained experience in crisis intervention from my time working in a Level 12 group home for adolescent females.

Hi! In a world where so many of us regularly get the message that we are flawed, I think it is important to start by saying something that we might not hear so regularly, which is, that it is okay to be you. But if I’m being honest, being yourself is not always an easy thing to do. As a therapist, I place priority in creating a therapy environment where clients feel safe to share the most authentic versions of themselves without fear of judgement. In addition to a safe therapeutic space, my goal is to assist clients on their paths towards self-expression and self-acceptance no matter where they are in their journey.

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist with more than 7 years of experience working with individuals who have been diagnosed with developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety disorder and depression, as well as providing crisis management in critical situations.
Taking the initial step towards seeking a happier and more fulfilling life can be challenging, but you don’t have to navigate through the process alone. One of my passions in life is helping individuals to learn valuable tools for creating stronger connections with other people in their world. Through my warm, empathetic, and interactive counseling style, I respect and honor every individual’s growth process, and believe the foundation of exceptional therapy includes trust, emotional safety, and collaboration. My therapeutic approach is strength based and combines cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and solution-focused counseling.

I have worked with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

I also provide psychological evaluations for children and adults who exhibit challenges due to suspected developmental disabilities, Autism , or mood disorders.
Everyone experiences times in their life when they feel at the end of their rope. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to seek support, whether it be for yourself or for your child. You are experiencing anxiety, depression, isolation, feeling stuck, or struggling to find a different path. Your child is struggling with emotional outbursts, aggression, defiance, or behavioral challenges. These difficulties have caused relational problems, impairment at home or at work, and seem like a never ending battle. My goal is to help you find a way to a healthier and more fulfilling life.

I work well with teens and adults, individuals or couples and families, and I specialize with ethnic minority issues and LGBTQIA+ issues. We can work on current issues such as adjusting our thought processes to combat unhealthful or inaccurate thoughts. We can work on relaxation and coping skills to get you through the tough times. We can also work on past issues, revisiting memories from the past and childhood. We would reprocess those memories, use new words to accurately describe the memories, which then foster a new relationship with the memory, hopefully making it less impactful in your current state.

I believe that one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Beginning in therapy can be a way for you to start to put together the pieces of your life and who you are. And ultimately, you deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning. If you're someone that struggles with depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, LGBTQIA issues, and past trauma, I'd love to help you work through those challenges. I want to be the therapist that helps you along that journey.

Life gets hard sometimes and unfortunately the world we live in doesn’t equip us with the tools needed to take on problems when they arise. Problems can get too big for us to handle, at times infiltrating themselves into various aspects of our lives, taking our agency while making us believe there is something inherently wrong with us. Within my work as a therapist I lead with compassion and empathy, knowing that problems live outside of us and not within us—always staying aware and away from pathologizing practices.

Are you feeling unfulfilled in your relationships, choices, and just life? Those who feel detached from those around them often believe they're a burden and bring no value to those around them. If any of that resonated with you, you may feel disconnected from different areas of your life, such as work, relationships, family and interests. Many individuals go through life never feeling like they belong, lack fulfillment, joy, and a sense of identity. You're here looking to finally put yourself first, to find a sense of satisfaction in your life, and I'd love to be part of that journey, so you no longer feel alone.

Life can throw us some pretty crazy curves! Often we try every solution from our “playbook” and still end up “losing the game.” We’re unable to pull ourselves out of our current life circumstances because we are trying to escape from the issues unable to face them, move on and heal. Married couples blame one another, parents and kids resent one another, and society provides very little to help us through life's struggles and trauma. I team up with you as we work together to uncover the core issues keeping you "stuck" in life and your relationships and replace these stuck areas with strategies to develop the life you deserve!

No one should have to feel alone or unsupported during life's difficulties. Many of my clients come to therapy because they are experiencing depression, anxiety, or loneliness. These difficulties are often related to their relationships, identity struggles, trauma, or major life transitions. I enjoy working with individuals who feel overwhelmed/stuck, and/or disconnected from themselves, peers, or significant others, in order to help them regain confidence and connection. Additionally, I often work with couples (engaged/dating/married) who are distressed and struggling to connect, communicate, and find peace in their relationships.

Therapy can help you overcome challenges such as addressing negative feelings, making behavioral change, managing a transition, or dealing with grief, loss, and trauma. Therapy is also a great place to learn about strengthening relationships, setting goals, and challenging yourself to be the person you want to be. I have been working with and advocating for individuals, children, and families since 2005. I welcome all clients, but found my techniques to be particularly helpful in working with anxiety, depression, life transition, trauma history, PTSD, grief or loss, and couple & family dynamic issues.

What type of Fullerton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Fullerton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
