Hi! I am Elaine Mains, a Licensed Marriage & Family therapist in California. I have over 9 years of experience, including being at Rady Children’s Hospital, working with families, children and teenagers. I have a compassionate, authentic and down to earth approach to therapy; I want to meet you where you are at. I focus on providing short-term therapy because I believe a lot of growth can happen in a short amount of time. My approach to therapy is evidenced-based, person-centered and strength-based. I have experience in depression and anxiety disorders, trauma informed care, grief and loss, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and restoration therapy. I am looking to build strong therapeutic relationships with people I work with in a non-judgmental and safe space. I look forward to helping you navigate life’s stressors and walk with you through the healing process.

Elaine Mains has been very helpful to me. My family had a terrible tragedy. Left me with anxiety and panic attacks. Elaine was very calming and gave me some things to do to manage the anxiety and I am no longer having panic attacks. She has helped me to understand and manage what is happening to me. She is also a great listener I can ramble on for awhile and she will address every one of my concerns.
I am looking forward to our next session.
