Ms. Bayer is a bilingual experienced therapist who works mostly with adults individually or in couples. Based on her own background as a Latin married to an Anglo, she specializes in working with mixed marriage couples, as well as parenting in a different culture. People who move away from their country of origin experience a series of adjustment issues that may result in specific symptoms such as depression, anxiety, confusion, hurt over loss of identity, family and friends. Addressing them helps people adjust and develop resources and coping skills to overcome the changes. She also works with trauma, abuse and grief.

I am honored to accompany you on your journey of growth and healing. Life is not easy, and often, people can feel overpowered by life-changing events and ongoing challenges. It takes courage to learn from life's challenges; we first need to listen and understand old patterns of thinking and core misbeliefs that can impact behaviors. I am here to support you. I am passionate about working with children, young adults, couples, and individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, academic and occupational stress, relationship issues, and life transitions.

Do you feel like past wounds are preventing you from moving forward? Perhaps you have a difficult time understanding why you continue to repeat unhealthy behaviors or feel ashamed for not living up to your own or others' expectations. You probably feel a mixture of emotions: motivated to change, but afraid of feeling uncomfortable and vulnerable. Maybe you doubt your ability to change or question if talking about painful issues can actually help you feel better. Having these thoughts and feelings is a normal part of the growth process.

Sometimes it can feel like the stressors of life are extra heavy. It can feel like no matter how hard you try to get through this season, there is no way out. Have you missed the old you? Are you feeling sad, stressed, and like no one understands what you're going through? You may be searching for a way to move out of the pain and hurt that have been keeping you from joy. A way to let go of the shame and guilt you have been carrying and learn how to cope with the big and small struggles of life.

If you are feeling trapped, your voice is not being heard, your life feels out of control and you are starting to lose hope, it can be overwhelming and scary. It can make you feel isolated, inadequate and stir thoughts that there is something wrong with you, while feeling powerless. However, have you ever wondered how would it feel to be heard, to know that your voice matters, to have control of your life and also the confidence and power to make the changes that you need and want? Can you imagine waking up and feeling hopeful about life, feeling calm and having the chance to start again and decide how you want to live your life?

As a parent or caregiver, you've noticed a change where your tween, adolescent or teen just isn't the way they used to be. Their smile is gone and they're more to themselves, stressed, unmotivated, anxious, sad, or angry and you know something has to change. You know they often feel misunderstood, are quiet, sensitive, don't easily trust adults, or have seen so many therapists they couldn't make progress with and you're not sure they will open up. You need someone to connect with your teen, join their world, and support them in regaining happiness and stability to meet their goal of having a happy, hopeful and successful life.

As a biracial female therapist, I value diversity issues, so I uniquely tailor treatment to each individual client. Establishing a therapeutic relationship is one of the most important treatment goals for me for client progress. I'm here to help clients who are searching for change with an authentic experience. Therapy shouldn't always be about "fixing" a person, it should be about helping you achieve the quality of life you really desire. No matter if you are a homeschooler, "crunchy-parent", vegan or vegetarian, spiritual or not, LGBTQ, my therapeutic approach will be open-minded and open-hearted.

What type of Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo?
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.
