Karen Alonso, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Newport Beach
My approach is warm and relational fostering self-expression and enhancing coping strategies. Creative expression is encouraged and invites individuals to in vision options and possibilities by shifting perception, expanding awareness, and strengthening a sense of well-being. Dialectical and Cognitive Behavioral strategies are collaborative by nature and through these modalities I will guide you to the answers you hold within, allowing natural healing through the power of the therapeutic relationship.
I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, an effective evidence based treatment for emotion management difficulties, and the Behavior Therapy Training Institute in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Exposure Response Prevention, gold standard treatment modalities for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. My profile can be found on the International OCD foundation site.
I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families, in multiple settings that include; group private practice, crisis stabilization units, substance abuse rehabilitation facilities, domestic violence programs, court mandated programs, and public school settings.
