Hello, my name is Dr. Evelyn DeLaCruz-Jiron, I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Licensed Addictions Counselor. I hold a Doctoral Degree of Education, with a strong emphasis on organizational psychology and systems family therapy. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including crisis intervention, trauma hospitals, intensive outpatient, private practice and tele-behavioral health. While spending the majority of my career providing clinical supervision as an AAMFT Approved Supervisor, my favorite part of my job is building rapport with clients and working collaboratively to individualize your goals for treatment. I provide both short-term counseling and complex care management so together, we can find the best solution to fit your needs. My specialties include psychotherapy for children/adolescents, families and couples and I'm certified in Experiential, CBT, ACT and DBT interventions. Our initial time together will be geared toward assessing your needs and identifying your goals for treatment. I generally ask some questions to gather more collateral and together, we can determine next steps. Sound good?
Throughout our time together, I encourage you to be honest and open about your needs, your goals and of course, your progress! I have a whole bunch of “tools” to manage and regulate emotions, process frustrations, ground your mind and cope with difficult situations that we can “add to your tool belt”. If a “tool” isn’t working well, please feel free to share so we can discuss and try a new “tool” as there is more than one way to get things done! This is a collaborative process and I’m always interested in your thoughts and ideas. I'm glad you contacted Better Help and I look forward to working with you.

I also have experience in Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Coping with life changes, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, ADHD

When I signed up for BetterHelp, I didn't honestly care who my therapist was that got assigned to me. I felt like my world had been destroyed and I just needed anyone or anybody to be by my side as I waded through the rubble. As the days went on I am so thankful that I was paired with Dr. DelLaCruz-Jiron. I couldn't be happier with my experience with her. She provides everything I need in a counselor, and has helped me in a magnitude that I cannot quantify. She has provided me with a perfect balance of listening when I need to talk, providing great feedback, and giving me access to helpful resources. She makes amazing suggestions and allows me to formulate my opinions on my own. Dr. DeLaCruz-Jiron has respectfully earned my highest level of recommendation.
Dr. DeLaCruz-Jiron is a fantastic therapist. She helped me find out some things about myself that I found hard to admit, and gave me a lot of good coping mechanisms to get better. I feel stronger now than I did when I started, and will continue to use the techniques that she gave me. She is very skilled, very prompt in replying and helps when she can.
I have seen a few therapists over the years, but none were quite as helpful as Evelyn. She listened and kept me on track and so I was able to make progress. She definitely helped me help myself!
Evelyn has been a fantastic listener and source of wisdom these last few weeks. I so appreciate her help and will definitely plan to work with her again the next time I find myself needing to talk through things with a third party.
I am very happy with her. She seems to understand what I need to help me get better. She seems to understand what I’m going through
She has really helped me start to come to terms with things. I can always message her and it helps knowing someone is there, she provides a lot of support and help. Also, provides a more chilled/relaxed chat and is very understanding :)
