Juanita Guevara

LCSW

About Me

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California for four years and have over seven years of experience working for child protective services. I have worked with a variety of child(ren) and adult clients struggling with a variety of issues including, but not limited to: family conflict, childhood trauma, parenting problems, sexual abuse/exploitation, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse/ addiction. I have worked with various populations of people, including foster youth and incarcerated clients and have a lot of compassion for the circumstances that lead to working with those clients.

My therapy style is empathetic, empowering, and honest. I practice treating everyone with respect and use a trauma-informed approach that includes sensitivity and compassion for understanding behavior. Although my line of work includes diagnosing those seeking help, I do not believe people should incorporate their diagnosis(es) as a label on their identity, instead, mental health is sometimes an obstacle that can be overcome and managed. We all need some help throughout our lives and therapy can either be a short- or long-term tool used to work towards stability and self-actualization. My therapeutic approach utilizes cognitive-behavioral and solution focused therapy. I will work with you to determine your specific needs and create an individualized action plan to help you reach your therapeutic goals.

Seeking out help in a time of need is a very powerful step one can take to working toward changing life circumstances and moving toward more positive outcomes. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She takes days to respond & didn’t offer much help with the issues I had
