About Me

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 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

Written by N.E. on Nov 11, 2019 after counseling with Evelyn for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, grief, self esteem, and anger management

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 :)
