Hi, I'm Brandi Walker, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and owner of B.O.L.D.L.Y. Therapy (BT). BT was created to help clients obtain and retain quality mental health by providing useful psychotherapy services delivered with empathy, authenticity, flexibility, and professionalism. At BT clients get a safe confidential therapeutic space to discuss concerns, feel valued, and supported.
Your fears, your anxieties and your self-doubts come from a deep desire to be seen, known and loved. When you can quiet that fear and connect to your story, you can find a path to what you most need in life. The story you tell yourself has the power to motivate you, transform you and move you to action or it can limit you, undermine you and close you off to future possibilities. Telling and owning your story and loving yourself through the process is the bravest thing you will ever do. More importantly, it frees you to write a new ending.
There are many forces mitigating against your marriage or relationship We all have vulnerabilities, sensitivities or wounds that are inevitably triggered in intimate long-term relationships. For example, for one person, it may be feeling criticized; for another, it may be not feeling adequately cared for, etc. Those sensibilities emerge and develop from woundings in family relationships with parents, siblings and important others. When triggered, vulnerabilities can at times manifest like allergies; even a small dose can trigger a reaction, a defensive or protective response.
I strongly believe that every human being is worthy and should be living their best life. Therapy should be a safe place where one can explore our deepest emotions, thoughts, and feelings without judgement. Together, I believe we can help you heal from past emotional wounds that are not allowing you to be who you truly are. I am a bilingual Spanish speaking Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience. I have worked in outpatient mental health programs, non-profit agencies, field-based community programs, and private practice.
I specialize in working with complex behavior problems related to traumatic experiences in school aged children and their parents/caregivers. We will work together to address behavioral challenges related to Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, anxiety, depression, and trauma related behaviors such as suicidal ideations and self-harm. Together we will develop the skills to improve relationship quality, restore healthy functioning, and maybe even have a little fun in the process.

** Accepting New Clients (Optum and Private Pay) March 2022**. If you are struggling with sadness or worry, you feel that something isn’t right, maybe you know the root cause, maybe you don’t. Having a supportive professional by your side can help you peel away the layers, learn how to cope and get your life back on track. I specialize in teens and young adults (18-30 years old) that are struggling with a variety of issues including trauma, depression, anxiety and low self-esteem.
We’ve all experienced life transitions. Some transitions are smooth and others trigger inner dialogue that lead us to ask ourselves questions like, “Is this really what I’m supposed to be doing? What if I can’t do it? Am I good enough?” Left unanswered and without direction, these questions are enough to make anyone anxious enough to reach for the nearest distraction or depressed enough to give up. This is where I come in.
I wholeheartedly believe it’s my role as a therapist to assist my clients in realizing, cultivating, and accessing internal and external resources to make positive change in life. I work collaboratively with individuals, couples, youth, and families as they address life’s challenges and transitions. I am versed in treating individuals, couples and families in the areas of substance abuse, sex and love addiction, trauma, grief/loss, depression, anxiety, family transitions, domestic violence and child abuse recovery, LGBT+ issues, relationship and partner conflict, and perinatal issues.
As an interactive, solution focused therapist, my approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I assist clients to find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. Blending conventional and alternative approaches, I use a variety of clinical styles which will be most helpful to each client to assist in building the strength to identify and achieve their goals.
I believe that therapy should be accessible to all and aim to provide a safe, empathic, and comfortable environment that allows an individual to address their mental health needs at their own pace. I have worked in acute medical settings, homeless services, community mental health, and HIV+ case management.
My name is Tanisha Simpson and my clinical experience includes working with children, teens, and adults with severe mental illnesses and individuals in crisis.

Parents dream of supporting their children as they develop and pursue their dreams. Many times parents can help them with the daily decisions and encourage them to develop habits that will shape their character in order to ready them for their future living these dreams. However, when problematic behaviors or when a learning/cognitive disability poses a threat to shatter future dreams, an expert who understands behaviors and the school environment can be key in providing a path to keep those dreams alive.
"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly " -Buddha. We seek total happiness by chasing a dream, fixing the past, or preparing for the future but we forget to enjoy the moment. Total wellness whether physically or mentally comes from making healthy choices, accepting the past, shortcomings, and troubles that may plague your mind. I invite you to take this journey of self-exploration and learning to live in the moment.
My mission is to walk alongside individuals and families as they strive toward connection. I believe that connection comes from finding hope, from authentic communication, and from learning to trust one's self. Humans are wired for connection. Connection leads to lower anxiety and depression, higher trust and empathy, and consequently, higher intimacy. Lack of connection is the source of pain that can cause addiction, infidelity, depression, anxiety, and a host of mental disorders. Connection has even been proven to improve physical symptoms. I can't wait to explore with you and to see what connection can do for your life!
My name is Shannon Walker and I began providing therapeutic services out of the calling to help those who truly want to heal. By taking a holistic approach to traditional therapy, I have come to discover that healing comes from the desire to change...because staying stagnant is no longer an option. I want to help you help yourself. If you are someone who likes a direct approach to understanding, connection, and communication, set up a free consultation and I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
I am a clinical psychologist licensed in California with several years of experience providing psychodiagnostic assessments and mental health treatment. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, acquired and congenital disabilities, grief and loss, career challenges, PTSD and aging issues. I also helped many people who are first responders, military, and veteran personnel.
Asking for help and opening up can be a difficult process but allowing yourself to share troubling and stressful experiences can help you to regain control over your life. Learning to improve safe coping skills can help one to release stress and anxiety and better deal with life circumstances in a more positive way. Releasing hurt and pain is a healing process and promotes growth which can improve relationships and overall life satisfaction.
