Altagracia Padilla “Grace” AMFT #125138

I understand that taking the first step in seeking help can be difficult. I will meet you where you are at and help you work on where you would want to be . Oftentimes, painful emotions and difficult histories make it hard to cope the way we would prefer to. Relationships can suffer, our self-esteem dwindles and we end up feeling lonely and isolated. Together we can work on helping you feel fulfilled and like you are back on track.

I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family therapy, from Pepperdine University and have many years of experience providing therapy to individuals, couples, families, teenagers and children. In my sessions I provide a nurturing environment with therapeutic approaches from either cbt, humanistic, solution-focused and/or family systems as a base, in order to tailor to your individual goals. Some of the services I provide include: Therapy for Depression and Anxiety, Couples Counseling, Family Counseling, Parenting Support, Grief Counseling, Work and Career issues, Stress Management and Conflict Resolution. I also hold over 5 years of experience working with individuals and their families in the spectrum and comorbid disorders. 
I hope to be part of your self care journey! To ensure that I am the right therapist for you, I am offering a complimentary thirty minute telephone consultation.  I may be reached at 818-396-7297 and  If needed, I can also provide therapy in Spanish. Life is not easy, but it sure feels much better when you have a therapist who is there for you, and who is on your team!
