Irianna Montes


About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Play Therapist in California with over 15 years of experience working in the mental health field. Some of my work experience includes working as a Rehabilitation Specialist, an Anger Management Counselor and a Marriage and Family Therapist. I have worked in private and public settings and have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, trauma, and ADHD. As a Registered Play Therapist, I believe in the power of play and how play can help process emotions/events/experiences where words cannot, at any age.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. My strength-based approach helps find the shimmers of hope in dark situations. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and meeting them where they are at (emotionally). My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused and humanistic modalities, and I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Taking the first steps towards change and seeking a happier and fulfilled life is no easy task so for that, you should be proud of yourself! If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
