My name is Jessica, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist currently practicing in California and Oregon. I have been working in the mental health field for about 9 years working with diverse populations providing varying levels of services from community based treatment to individual therapy. I have worked for 8+ years in the health industry in conjunction with my mental health work where I have supported clients in developing mental toughness, increasing self-esteem/confidence, working through health concerns and emotional eating.
Hello! my name is Aundriea Evans and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. One thing I know is that change is the one part of life that will always be constant and unavoidable. My goal is to help individuals get through emotionally draining life changes using healthy coping skills, adopting a positive mindset, incorporating self-care, and establishing a supportive network. It takes time to adjust to what life brings. So if you are currently struggling to cope with life transitions and would like support, let's connect.
Do you feel over sensitive or misunderstood, or that patterns keep repeating in your life? Therapy is a unique experience that gets under the patterns to see why and how they got you into a negative space-and then to help get unstuck. Working through your experience of loss can help make sense of the depression or anxiety that are taking too much or your time and energy. That unlocks the natural development of healthy self esteem. Therapy helps you reclaim yourself from the 'unfinished business' of life stresses.

I am dually licensed as an MFT and a Psychologist. I am also a hypnotherapist. I treat many conditions. Depression, Anxiety and PTSD for example. I believe that the therapeutic connection is essential; I respect my youngers as well as my elders. However, I believe that what differentiates a psychotherapist from a paid friend is a mastery of the unconcious. I therefore include in my practice methods that tap into a person's inner knowledge of self: EMDR, Natural Processing, hypnosis, inner child work and Gestalt dreamwork. I see the unconcious as the last frontier, and we are pioneers!
My psychotherapy practice is built around helping people create significant changes in the way they are able to live their lives. Those who have been challenged by the experience of becoming parents of a difficult child, those who have had their lives disrupted by trauma, those struggling with food issues, and those who desire to deepen their understanding of themselves are among the people who will find a welcoming space in my office to slow down and reflect. I believe that living a mindful and aware life is a true blessing.
I work with adults of all genders and sexualities in individual, couple, and group settings. I believe that any symptoms or behaviors currently bothering you served a purpose at one time; if they have ceased to be useful, together we can find ways to reduce or eliminate them. I draw most heavily from somatic, cognitive-behavioral, narrative and solution-focused therapies. I specialize in brief, focused work but can engage in longer term work, if this is more appropriate for your concerns.
I believe we are each born with an internal guidance system - a GPS of the soul that contains all the information we need to accomplish the breadth of our lives. But from the get-go, Western culture discourages our efforts to connect with it.
A favorite quote of mine is, "The truth always happens." Too often, our present truth is filled with suffering and anxiety. But we can shape our truth, to better cope with disorder or overcome pain and trauma. The therapeutic process provides insight into behaviors and actions that allows for growth in self and relationships. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and adults of all backgrounds, helping clients and families to understand a range of behaviors and disorders. Working together, clients learn to recognize feelings, relate them to behaviors, and develop tools to recreate their own truth.
Are you tired of trying to figure out how to deal with your feelings on your own? Not sure who to listen to? Thank you for visiting my site. I work with adults (18+) who are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, university challenges, both academic and social, and other difficult life events/transitions. My goal is to establish a positive and trusting connection with my clients while providing a supportive environment for the work we do together. I work collaboratively with my clients to find new ways of coping and managing difficult challenges that will ultimately lead to a more meaningful and productive life.
Therapy is an investment of time and energy towards self-awareness and transformation, creating balance and harmony, while instilling hope, and self-acceptance. In my work, the most common areas of focus involve relationship or self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, abuse, or those with self-defeating behavioral patterns. Separation, divorce and child custody can be a painful process for parents as well as children. I offer a safe, supportive and nurturing environment to cope with these challenges together while seeking the appropriate tools unique to your situation to facilitate conflict resolution and positive co-parenting.
I love my work as a therapist because it allows me to truly listen to others and pay attention to their needs. My objective as a therapist is to assist people in identifying and achieving their goals. Examples of some therapeutic goals include: improving relationships, reducing conflict, gaining clarity, improving self-image, becoming more confident, grieving a loss, reducing depression or anxiety, resolving past trauma, improving life satisfaction, etc. Rather than adhering to one specific school of thought, I utilize an integrative approach that carefully and thoughtfully selects from several useful models.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and am passionate about helping individuals create desired change in their lives while developing self-compassion and self-acceptance. My therapeutic approach is both warm and challenging to create a safe relationship that allows for exploration of what is causing pain or struggle, resulting in greater clarity and peace. I work from a client centered approach and utilize a variety of modalities including Brainspotting, Cognitive-Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Family Systems, and Narrative Therapy to help individuals heal, grow, and live more authentically.
