Fernando ' Fred' Gutierrez, EdD, JD, Psychologist in Pasadena
My style is to provide a safe environment where you can focus on areas where you want to grow. I enjoy helping individuals, couples, and families become independent, assertive problem solvers so that you can take charge of your life. I offer a setting where you can learn to negotiate and compromise and to ask for what you need without imposing your will on others. You can also learn to set limits and boundaries with others. You can replace self-pity with self-esteem; let go of resentments and replace them with serenity; replace fear with courage; despair with joy.
I utilize an eclectic approach to tap into the treatment modalities available and fit the modality to the client's needs as opposed to fitting the client to a treatment technique, whether for depression, panic attacks,anxiety, anger management,co-dependency or other issues.
Qualified by Santa Clara County Superior Court as an expert witness in the areas of psychological evaluations of adults, children, and chemical dependency issues. I also have a forensic psychology practice. I have several published articles on counseling LGBT, Hispanics, African-Americans, and conducting immigration psychological evaluations.
