Welcome, I am Arlyn Mendoza. I am a Marriage and Family therapist (LMFT) licensed in California with 7 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, ADHD, PTSD, bipolar, schizophrenia, and personality disorders, I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma, domestic violence or emotional abuse. I have completed the Trauma Focus Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Polyvagal theory, EMDR, Griefs and Loss, and DBT for eating disorders trainings. As a therapist I worked with in both county and private practice community. My experience includes working with individuals, group, passionate about family therapy, and couples.
My therapeutic style is warm, interactive and strength based. However; I believed in a holistic approach to view the individual as a whole person (body, mind and spirit). I am also a Jesus Christ believer and without his guidance and his word I would not be here at this moment. I believe in treating anyone with respect, empathy, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, polyvagal theory, narrative, grief, EMDR, client center approach, solution focus, trauma focus therapy, and emotional focused therapy for couples, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I am a bilingual therapist (Spanish), I love to travel to understand the different Hispanic cultures, working with the Hispanic culture is one of my passions.
It takes love to seek a more fulfilling and happier life around your love ones. You just took the first step towards change. If you are ready to know more about yourself, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
