I work primarily from psychodynamic and attachment perspectives.
Seeking therapy is often a reflection of significant discomfort in your life. Maybe you feel that your emotions have become difficult to manage, or perhaps you feel numb to them. You might feel stuck in your relationships or job, or perhaps you have experienced a significant event and are having difficulty adjusting to or making sense of it. These are just a few of the many situations that therapy can help you navigate by taking a curious approach to your thoughts and feelings and deepening your understanding of yourself, your relationships, and your mind.

My approach is psychodynamic and trauma-informed, and I utilize elements of CBT, ACT, DBT, family systems, and interpersonal modalities.
Pregnancy, birth, postpartum, parenting, loss, infertility, and coparenting are seasons of life in which deep transformation occurs for individuals, partners, and family systems. Our generational stories, trauma histories, social and cultural experiences, and personal goals all inform how we find ourselves in these threshold moments. Life is full of seasons of change that find us in these liminal spaces. Whatever threshold you find yourself in, there is time and space for you to pause and fortify before stepping forward on your path. It's an honor to share that space with you.

I'm mainly a psychodynamic therapist w/additional training.
Most of my clients have reached a point at which their lives have become uncomfortable & maybe even untenable. They may be nervous about embarking on the therapeutic journey with a stranger. Often, this is their first experience with therapy. Or, perhaps, they have been in therapy on & off throughout their lives. Because this is new & anxiety-provoking, we move slowly at first. My clients do not want to be pushed into talking about trauma or uncomfortable life events until they are ready. I respect & honor that. Most people want to move at their own pace & will tell me what that means. As trust grows, we are able to begin healing.

While the focus of psychotherapy is often on current issues, understanding the influence of past experiences and relationships is an important part of the therapeutic process. My perspective is that every individual has a purpose and a mission, yet sometimes we need objectively and professionally guided examination in rediscovering that purpose, and to identify goals and objectives to fulfill that mission. I approach my work with my clients with respect, humor, and utilizing evidence based practices to achieve meaningful outcomes.

Let's skip the catchy intro, no one wants to be talked to like a 3am infomercial. But wait! There's more! We all want to feel loved, understood, wanted and heard. Often times we find ourselves feeling lost and alone, desperate for a way "out". I use a variety of techniques to foster and growth for clients (individually and/or within their relationships). How do you explain to someone whats wrong when you don't know what's wrong yourself? My first step is providing insight to increase self-value and help you and/or your partner(s)/child understand the dynamics and core wounds at play. Second step.. healing.

Maybe you’re walking through life, going through the motions, and struggling to see why you keep going. Your mind races in circles. You’re easily irritated, angry, and panic. Or maybe you are struggling to fully embrace life in the ways you previously did. Anxiety is preventing you from being your true self. You try so hard but can’t get it right. It’s exhausting and you’re expected to do it all again tomorrow. What’s the point? Change, that’s impossible!

I enjoy joining my clients on their walk towards goals they feel will help them create the life they want to live. We can choose to take any obstacles we might face and examine them with a lens of curiosity, understanding, and compassion. I hold the personal and professional stance that we build resilience through diversity and honoring all parts of ourselves: past, present, and future. This helps to organize our goals and to make room for any potential growth edges that need to smoothened out. I lead with my whole self into meetings and I invite anyone I work with to do the same!

Calling to make your first therapy appointment can be a very intimidating step. Choosing a therapist that you can relate to and feel comfortable with, is also challenging. You ask friends and associates for recommendations, but, you realize that "one size fits all" actually doesn't apply in this process. Finding the right therapist is the difference between being successful in your personal mental health/relationship goals or not. There is a lot on the line. I have been treating individuals, couples and families since 1987. Select myself or one of my associates at MBCAreno.com for your personal transformation.

I am a LCSW providing virtual therapy in AZ, CA and NV. In my work, I believe that the true health and freedom we crave present themselves when we align body, mind and soul and return to the instinctual, intuitive wisdom that exists within us to guide us on our life journey. Through returning to ourselves and the sense of safety, security and love that come with feeling safe and at home in our bodies, we are able to open to life and live fully. Working with me requires a willingness to do hard, deep, but gentle, work.

My passion is to heal people...body, soul, mind, and spirit. I provide effective, non-medication solutions for trauma, stress, depression, anxiety, attention difficulties, sleep problems, and emotional regulation. I also help individuals, couples, and families overcome relationship hurdles, such as attachment and attunement imbalances, communication problems, and relational conflicts. I work with children of all ages in an environment conducive to their particular processing, developmental, and emotional needs. I consider it an honor to be invited into my clients' world and helping them overcome that which keeps them from good health, satisfying relationships, and school- or work-related success.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
