Are you stuck in unhealthy relationship patterns? Are you coping with the stress of life in destructive ways- by bottling up your feelings or acting out through addiction or in toxic relationships? You do not have to struggle alone. During the different stages of our lives, our relationships, and our family life cycle, we can get stuck in certain places. As your therapist we would work together to help you find what you need so that you can move through these stuck places, experience healthier relationships, find hope and be free from destructive behaviors.
Discovering yourself can be a frightening journey for many individuals, but it is not a journey that you have to complete alone. For those looking to build their inner strength, increase their feelings of empowerment, implement boundaries and assert themselves in their life and relationships look no further. I realize that beginning therapy can be frightening especially for those who are the first in their family to do so. My approach as a therapist is to provide you with a safe and compassionate environment for you to explore and uncover. Together we can devise an action plan to assist you in becoming the person you wish to be.
Learn to sleep better from the comfort of home anywhere in California! Quality sleep is the bedrock of optimal health. It makes you happier, less depressed & anxious and better equipped to cope with stress. Sleep enhances memory and creativity, makes you look more attractive, keeps you slim and lowers food cravings. It also protects against cancers and dementia, wards off colds & flu and lowers risk of heart attacks, strokes and diabetes. I'm devoted to helping people get back to restorative sleep. I've worked for decades in accredited sleep disorders centers and now offer treatment via a secure tele-video conferencing platform.
I see all types of individuals, couples and families on a variety of relational issues. I work extensively with children/adolescents and their parents on many issues ranging from academic to behavioral problems.

I incorporate Solution-Focus/Post Modern/Cognitive Behavioral Therapies/Interventions in the way that I work with my clients. I also supervise Ms. Sara Chesters, IMF#64204 at Santa Ana Community Counseling.
Let's face it, the past few years have been rough! All of these new stressors have really taken a toll on everyone and have left many of us feeling anxious, depressed, or simply lost. Unfortunately, these feelings often come with negative thoughts about ourselves and our ability to overcome our personal challenges. Maybe we are feeling more worried about the future? Maybe we just aren't feeling like we're enough? Or maybe we can't even pinpoint exactly what's wrong but we know that something just feels "off." Whatever the thoughts and feelings are that led you here, it's important that you understand this: You're not alone!
My name is Anabella Lopez; I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). My philosophy is that I work in partnership with each individual to facilitate their healing and improve their quality of life. I am a therapist with experience of about ten years, mainly working in underserved communities. I am committed to helping children, adolescents, families, and adults. I have experience working with trauma, anxiety, and depression. I use a psychodynamic approach that allows clients to gain self-awareness and understanding of how their past can influence their current behaviors.
Do you feel difficult getting through the day without feeling nervous, angry or sad? Do you feel due to personal struggles, you isolate your friends and family? I have a passion in helping people through their pain and suffering by creating a space of acceptance and open respect. I strive to provide a nurturing and safe environment where my clients can receive encouragement and non-judgmental support as I walk alongside my clients to reach their therapeutic goals. My goal is to help people navigate their lives and improve relationships in a healthy way.
There are times when we need to explore some growth & healing work. Thankfully the ability to grow & heal is built into our human-nature, a nature that comes alive when receiving the support we need. Therapy is for receiving this support, and in a way that fits with you. And so I trust in this: Creating in your own expressive way a better life is what I know you are able—and meant—to do. Supporting you in discovering this for yourself will be a heartfelt privilege for me.

Fostering greater self-awareness, 2. Pursuing healing for deep rooted experiences and 3. Developing skills for healthy relating. Whatever brings someone to therapy, I believe that we all benefit from the journey of understanding our thoughts, feelings, and action.

I originally focused my practice on mental health issues in the health care setting.

Struggling with challenging emotions? Having difficulty in important relationships? You've found your way here because you dare to believe things can be different...better even. I have confidence that you have it within you to create a new and fulfilling way of living and relating to others in the healthiest and most authentic way possible. Courageously examine your concerns and issues (e.g., relationships, behavioral patterns/habits, thinking patterns, difficult emotions, fears, etc.) in a safe, empowering environment with someone (me) who can relate to you with no agenda except your happy and healthy life.
I thrive on stories and the people, who live, learn, and change their journeys one day at a time. I have extensive experience working with adults and adolescents in a variety of clinical settings. My clinical skills are demonstrated through a commitment to serving clients in a therapeutic and warm setting. My goal and passion is to help clients empower themselves to reach their individual goals. Empowerment is the belief that you have the ability to control the course of your life. Sometimes when life brings challenges and unwelcome stress, we may need a little extra support and clarity.
