Yvette A Aguayo, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Diego
As a San Diego native, I am familiar and sensitive to the needs of the military, families of all cultures, as well as the court mandated client. I'm committed to the uplift of my community and am a child activist at heart. I'll empower you to lead YOUR definition of a successful life. Whether you're a veteran, anxiety-filled parent, or facing marital challenges you don't have to face this difficult time alone. I have 15+ years of experience to offer, including working with those who have been reluctant to initiate therapy in the first place.
I specialize in problem gambling, addictions, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma/abuse, and men's issues. I am an authorized Problem Gambling Counselor, and can offer treatment to the gambler and/or their loved ones at NO COST to you!!
I bring a personal and professonal understanding to blended family issues and the unique demands of biracial/bicultural issues. I have worked as both a CPS worker and Correctional Counselor and can provide resources and guidance if needed. My office is in Mission Valley, centrally located to serve you.
