People come to therapy for various reasons. You may be in crisis or you may want to work on long-standing behaviors that are no longer working for you. Maybe negative self-talk is getting in your way, or repeating the same behavior expecting different results and aren't sure how to make the necessary changes. Therapy is a process, finding the right therapist is important.

I believe that each person has a unique purpose. Life presents with situations where depression, addiction, anxiety, eating too much, eating too little, low self-esteem, and no self-identity can distract a person from finding this unique purpose. I like to explore a variety of issues that keep you from experiencing your purpose in life and help you find your meaning and make sense of that meaning.

Although fear, anger, shame, guilt, and sadness often prevent us from living each day to the fullest, each one of us is uniquely resilient. From a strengths-based approach, I work collaboratively with my patients to facilitate personal growth, healing, and the establishment of more meaningful and fulfilling interpersonal relationships. I utilize EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) as a primary intervention in the resolution of trauma in individual therapy.

Hi there, I'm Esmeralda! I've been practicing for the last three years. I graduated from California State University San Bernardino with a Master's in Social Work. Lately, I've frequently been working with dual-diagnosis clients and enjoying the work. My approach is client-centered and solution-focused. Motivational Interviewing is helpful when starting a therapeutic relationship to ensure the client's motive to seek treatment is understood.

Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.

My psychotherapy focuses on revitalization, moving forward, and cultivating deepening perspectives. An inner personality force--some call it soul--beckons us ever forward and ever deeper. Our work together helps you discover this innate healing force, allowing for a transformative reset that replenishes your vitality and awakens "positive" emotions like reverence, awe, and compassion. Misfortune can, with hard work, become a potent deepening agent that increases self-awareness, amplifies meaning in life, potentiates spiritual pathways, and elevates your capacity for presence and intimacy.

You were born with innate potential and natural abilities, yet it may be easy to forget your personal power if you struggle with depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, or overwhelmingly stressful life situations. Allow me to help gently guide you back to a sense of empowerment and together we can work on shifting your focus toward the personal strengths that give you energy. I am active in giving support and feedback and I will compassionately challenge beliefs and actions that no longer work for you. I believe you can change the way you think about painful experiences; seeing them instead, as transformative opportunities.
