I developed my areas of expertise in couple therapy and women's issues at APA-accredited training at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine, Texas A&M University, and the highly regarded VA Hospital in Palo Alto, CA.
I have spent my career working with couples and women experiencing stress, anxiety, and depression - and helping them to build healthier relationships and work on common painful issues. These include: infidelity, trauma, transition to parenthood, perinatal concerns, infertility, sexual problems, difficulty communicating, past sexual abuse, and other stressors. Many of my clients are high achieving professionals in entertainment, art, law, finance, medicine, and sport that have challenges juggling identities at work, at home, or in love.

I also specialize in women's issues particularly related to life transitions such as aging, adjusting to motherhood, changes in career, and health.
All therapy sessions are held virtually. For more information visit Tana DeSouza.com. I Have been working in the community for over 20 years. My clients are individual adults and couples often experiencing depression, anxiety, work or life stress, and relationship challenges. I am LGBTQ+ affirming. As a therapist, I am very interactive, warm, nonjudgmental and confident in my abilities. I often say that the most courageous people I have ever met are the ones who walk through my office door. Asking for help in a time of need takes great strength and vulnerability. (You can find me on Instagram & TikTok @tanadoestherapy).

Something isn't quite right lately! Things feel off and it's time for a change. Whether it's creatively rebooting, overcoming imposter syndrome, feeling more resilient, or navigating a new transition there's a way to change the patterns that aren't working anymore. When stress hits or we feel stuck we tend to revisit coping that doesn't serve us well. We may feel motivated to change, but lost as to the next steps. I work collaboratively with clients who are curious about their struggles and eager to collaboratively problem solve. We work together to uncover the patterns that aren't working anymore and explore solutions.

Carl Rogers once said, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change" meaning once someone can sense that a relationship is safe, the opportunities for self-exploration and change appear. I believe that once a person is truly seen, it is then that they can blossom into their truest self. My approach with each session is a warm, curious, and open attitude in the hopes that, ultimately, you arrive at a place of self-understanding and peace.

I help you release old patterns and work through uncomfortable emotions to create more space in your life. By developing a healthier relationship with yourself you will be able to create healthier relationships with others.

Do you need a place to be yourself? To be seen and fully accepted for who you are and encouraged to take leaps and risks to craft who you want to be? The fear of failure and judgments, our own and others, often holds us back from exploring the edge of our possibilities. I am passionate about creating a nurturing relationship where you can begin to practice and embody the changes you want to create in your own life. I work with individuals, couples, children, adolescents and families. I specialize in women who are reinventing themselves and family members of individuals with mental illness.

Part of our work together will center around separating who you think you "should" be from who you are. We will collaborate to cultivate an integrated acceptance of self, promoting a rich landscape for change to occur. Our society prioritizes individualism and fleeting connection over deeply intimate relationships. Together we will consider ways to cultivate more meaningful connections that inspire vulnerability and intimacy and build greater awareness around fears and conflicts hindering your ability to do so. We will clearly identify your needs and further develop the skills needed to communicate them to others.

Your overall wellness extends beyond your physical health and, by taking this first step to find a therapist, you are showing yourself love and compassion. Thank you for making your emotional and mental well-being a priority. Change takes time, is difficult, and can be scary but is ultimately, liberating and transformative. When we make changes in our lives, we open ourselves up to growth and new possibilities. Ghandi believed “the future depends on what you do today.” I believe each of us can overcome the obstacles that impact our relationships, happiness, quality of life, and keep us from being our most authentic selves.

You're an artist, an activist, a breaker of generational cycles who is looking to deepen your healing journey. You dream of having an integrated life where your emotions, intuition, and spirit can coexist. A life where healthy relationships flourish and your contributions to the culture are seen. You may feel exhausted by the experience of being a person of color, and you might be hungry for a safe space where you can show up as your full self. Perhaps you overthink and seek an embodied experience, a space where healing moves from the intellect to the physical. Welcome. You're home.

Every person has inherent creativity and a capacity to thrive. My role is to help connect you to your existing strengths and to help you try out new tools. When words are not enough, we can turn to more creative processes. Art therapy and EMDR are modalities that engage the body and mind, what we feel and think. Both modalities help us not only think differently, but also feel something new and healing.

I believe creating safety within a non-judgmental environment is crucial to begin the journey of self-exploration, recovery and healing. Each person has their own unique set of beliefs, experiences and needs. Working together, we identify the goals and direction of therapy. In my work with individuals and couples I use a feminist, empowerment-focused and collaborative approach. As a guide in my clients' journeys, I help clients face their challenges and find ways to move through them. I know the path can be difficult at times, and I look forward to working with those ready to explore those next steps.

To put it simply, I love people. And what inspires me as a therapist is the opportunity to serve others through authentic connection and collaborative insight into clients' thoughts, feelings and actions. While drawn to cognitive behavioral and Mindfulness interventions, for me, providing a safe, warm and open relational component is key. Whether working with couples, individual adults or adolescents, and issues ranging from anxiety, depression, trauma, or sexuality, intimacy and interpersonal functioning, it is a privilege to hold your confidence and assist you in your journey towards integration and wellness.

The human spirit has an amazing capacity for resilience, but sometimes it's too hard to access it on your own. When we encounter challenges and problems in relationships, in our workplaces, in our families, we can feel overwhelmed, hopeless, & stuck. It's not uncommon to feel depressed or anxious, or seek out unhealthy ways to function that mask the hurt. It's in situations like these that it takes great strength to reach out and ask for help--to seek someone to come alongside and enter into your experience; help shoulder the burden, and rediscover and connect with that resiliency.

What type of South Pasadena 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in South Pasadena?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
