Feeling Crazy? Lost your peace? Struggling with thoughts and emotions? Are you having a hard time dealing with stress, relationships, and navigating through life? Sometimes life can lead us to a place where we want to “give up.”

My name is Jacinta Brown-Wade, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of California with over 12 years of experience as a mental health therapist and life coach.

I have extensive experience working with clients on a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, ADHD, low self-esteem, PTSD, abuse/neglect, developmental trauma, emotional/sexual trauma, relationships problems, parenting difficulties, attachment difficulties, coping with life changes, behavioral issues, grief and loss, addiction, and career and school difficulties.

I describe my approach as empathetic, warm, goal oriented and client centered. My therapeutic approach is drawn from: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (certified), Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy model, Attachment theory, Solution-Focused, Functional Family Therapy, Mindfulness, and life coaching guided by individual needs, which reinforces strengths and abilities to facilitate change.

Dr. Brown-Wade is THE best. She listens and has such a caring demeanor. She's very easy to open up to and offers approachable techniques for working through issues.

It is difficult to express the positive and overwhelming impact Dr. Brown-Wade has had on my life. I instantly felt at ease and respected during our first session, and her listening skills are amazing (she can pick up on my subtle use of vocabulary in certain instances and understand how I'm really feeling before I do myself).

What sets her apart from everyone else I've ever had is the practical advice and homework. These are, from what I can tell, life skills that I can use to overcome my issues. This is why I would recommend her without a doubt; everything she does and suggests pushes my life in the right direction.

She is phenomenal.

Jacinta is absolutely amazing. She has helped me through some of the most difficult times in life. Even through those moments, I always look forward to a session with her. She goes with my flow and is able to point out issues in a way that is comforting/accepting. The personal growth I’ve had while working with Jacinta this past year is unbelievable. All around a great person and therapist!

Jacinta has been a great therapist, advisor and an awesome source of support for me as I have gone through some of my recent life challenges. When I first started, I did not where to begin. However, Jacinta was always there to help me sort through my thoughts and feelings. She helped me make plans towards my progress in dealing with what life dealt me. She guided me with great methods and solutions on how to make decisions, deal with my stressors, and how to always incorporate self-care. My experience with her was everything I needed. I’m so happy that I was paired with someone who really has the patience and expertise help me along in my time of need.

Work with me!
