Daria Balling

(M.A., LMFT)

About Me

Hello, and welcome! My name is Daria, and I’m a licensed marriage family therapist in the state of California, with an M.A. in clinical psychology. I have been practicing counseling for 15 years. I love getting to know people in a genuine, intimate level, and I enjoy watching them uncover their possibilities, and move a little closer to getting what they want. My style is gentle, collaborative, and catered toward each individual. I often like to incorporate solution focus, narrative, and Rogerian Humanistic orientations. I’ve worked with clients who struggled with social anxiety, depression, and childhood trauma, and have helped college students and adults of all ages work through career, relationship, and academic issues. I also enjoy collaborating with introverted and highly sensitive people on embracing their unique strengths and navigating the social world.
Sometimes therapy is a lovely way of discovering you are not as weird as you thought you were, and problems, once shared and examined, can seem less catastrophic. If you’re feeling stuck or stressed out, want to reshape your life, or need to unload pain or grief in a safe place, connecting with a therapist might help. Feel free to contact me, if you’d like to give it a try. I look forward to meeting and working with you. Cheers!

She is very supportive and lends an ear when I am stressed and just need to get things off my chest. She listens.
