About me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with seven years experience providing psychotherapy at a community mental health agency. I worked with diverse populations in Orange County and Long Beach, proving individual, group, and family psychotherapy.

As a humanistic therapist, I maintain a positive approach to psychotherapy by focusing on strengths and positive attributes. I assist my clients with developing a stronger, healthier sense of self, and with making rational choices towards achieving their maximum potential.

My hope is to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic environment, which is vital in helping clients overcome mental health issues and various problems in their lives. My foundation is in humanistic therapy; however, I do use interventions and techniques from other therapies (e.g., psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy) when appropriate.

I graduated from the University of California, San Diego with Bachelor's degrees in psychology and political science. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Since I started working with Fabian Clavijo I have developed some concrete strategies for addressing family conflicts and issues with my depression and I can see the improvements. It is sometimes slow going for me but he is a therapist who I know will keep me focused on making progress and not giving up on the possibility to make change for the positive in my life.

Great therapist. This was my first time doing therapy and immediately developed a trusting therapeutic relationship.

We went over my goals and he partnered with me to find a way to address the specific issue I came to therapy for. I really appreciated how he asked me about what kind of approach I wanted to try and tailored his approach to that.
