About Me

My experience as psychotherapist and my background related to psychotherapy begins in 1999 when I graduated as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) at Chapman University located in Anaheim, California.

I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in California, LMFT 46696. I have over 19 years of experience working as a psychotherapist to include life coaching. I have working experience with clients of all ages with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, lost issues, parenting problems, emotional abuse, victims of crime, ADHD challenges, or simple transitory issues that prevents any productive person from accomplishing the best of self.

My counseling style is friendly, interactive and structured, with special sensitivity to my client's emotional needs. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion always available to discuss my client's concerns and priorities. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is eclectic combining cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and psycho-dynamic counseling with a strong inclination to family systems. I will approach our interaction and therapeutic needs by tailoring the treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I do speak Spanish for those of you who would prefer to have their sessions in Spanish.

I am ready to take this therapeutic journey with you towards a more fulfilling and happier life.

I look forward to working with you!

I feel Gonzalo really cares about what I am going through. I have been going through a lot in every aspect of my life and I feel he is sensitive and responsive. If I forget to write to him, or get too busy, he pops in and says hello, which I like. I am dealing with ADD, relationship issues, work/professional issues, investing challenges, self-esteem, setting healthy boundaries. Also, I am a very ambitious person, but needed someone available and flexible, so this emailing works well for me.
