As a bilingual therapist, I use a person-centered approach in addition to cognitive behavioral, attachment-based and family systems approaches to facilitate the healing process.
Finding the right therapist can feel like a daunting process; however, I do believe that once you find a therapist that can provide a safe and comfortable space while honoring your beliefs and values, you can really begin the healing journey. If you are currently struggling with family or relationship issues, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, parenting or nervous about beginning therapy; I can help.

The fear and risk of deportation, your own fear and risk of your own status being taken away, and the difficulty of not only living your own life but helping your parents navigate systems that are not built for them.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Whittier view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
