Lizelle has been a social worker since 1991 and continues to enjoy partnering with people to improve their quality of life. For some this means managing longer standing mental health conditions and for others it can be more temporary as we struggle with bigger life questions. As we all have experienced during the pandemic, transitions can be challenging but also offer opportunities for growth. I have extensive experience in working with people who have experienced traumatic events, whether in childhood, as young adults, in their community or intergenerational. I can offer you a safe place that allows you to explore your sorrows,

I have extensive experience in guiding people to return to their natural state of psychological health and well-being. This state of equilibrium never goes away; it only becomes obscured through our learned patterns of thinking. As a practitioner of Integrative Medicine, my approach is wellness-based rather than illness-focused. Listening to physical symptoms can be very essential to the healing process. Creating a safe comfortable space I can be your guide to mental wellness. As you re-establish healthy thinking, you can tap into your own natural wellness.

Hi, my name is Kayla and my hope is to continue to support individuals in navigating the effects of daily stress and anxiety to more complex issues of depression and post traumatic stress disorder. Whether it's learning to understand our own mental health or just gain a better understanding of our own thoughts and feelings, I believe that each of us hold the ability to heal, and in doing so, find what helps us thrive. My approach to each session is to provide a safe space for clients to be at ease in the present and gain clarity while exploring, challenging and healing core wounds, values and behaviors.

I am an empathetic trauma-informed Associate Professional Clinical Counselor in California. I specialize in Grief, Trauma, and Eating Disorders, having worked with these populations in multiple settings. As you are reading this you may be minimizing various experiences you have had in life. Often, we tend to minimize our experiences as a way of coping with them and the world around us.  While this may have been necessary at some point in life, I am here to support you through the process of looking at those experiences once again and learning how to hold them in a way that you may have not felt was possible.

Coming from an Asian American background, I understand what it's like to have limited options for therapists. Are you looking for a therapist who understands the intersection of race/ethnicity, culture, and sexuality and its influence on your mental health? Have you found yourself more anxious around people, topics, or transitions in your own life? Are the ongoing disruptions from the pandemic or world events something that has made it harder to maintain connection with others? My goal in therapy is to navigate these complex stories and empower you to create meaningful change in your life.

Welcome! I consider myself to be a therapist that is genuine and kind with a grounded style.

I love helping my clients leave therapy with new realizations that create the deep shifts they have been looking for. If you reach out, I guarantee a call or email back on the same day you reach out so we can connect and see if we are a good fit. I am offering in-person and Telehealth sessions.

Movement and healing are possible! Sometimes we get stuck. I love working with people who desire to experience freedom from the impact of old wounds and unsatisfying relationship patterns. I provide short and long term therapy for people who are desiring to process trauma or disturbing life events, such as accidents, sudden loss of loved ones, and past physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. I also work with people who desire to navigate life transitions well, examine unhelpful patterns in their life that get in the way of thriving, and experience relief from anxiety.

Transpersonal Relationship Growth was founded by myself, Dr Cheryl Demalignon in 1987. I have been helping individuals, couples and families to better their relationships by having them improve their personal identity and increase their self esteem. We attract those relationships with others that mirror our love or dislike for ourselves. The quality of your life, the things you chose to do that provide growth and meaningfulness determine the degree of harmonious interpersonal connections you establish with others.

These are troubling times. We face unprecedented crises on multiple fronts, from ecological degradation to global health concerns (covid-19), the visible fracturing of societal/governmental institutions, and assaults on women’s reproductive liberty/sexual sovereignty. Feelings of instability, confusion, uncertainty, and anxiety are the new normal and we don’t know how to manage them. In fact, some of us may feel gaslighted when comparing our felt emotions/sensations with the perceived reality of the world - the business-as-usual paradigm encouraging us to keep our productivity high and our critical thinking/feeling low.

Depression, anxiety or addictions can happen to anyone. They may be an unconscious result of painful events, medical problems, stress, trauma or possibly a sign of a life out of balance. Are there behaviors that negatively impact your work or home life such as a drug/alcohol, gambling, internet gaming, pornography, exercise, sex/love or food preoccupation? Bringing these behaviors into balance will dramatically impact the quality of your life experience! As your partner in healing, I embrace all avenues you want to explore: Holistic health, EMDR, cognitive-behavioral therapy, 12-step or other religious/spiritual approaches.

What type of San Diego 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 San Diego?
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.
