About me

I received my Master in Social Work at University of Southern California in 2006. I have fifteen years experience providing therapeutic services to youth, teens, adults and families in different settings including clinics, hospitals, and private offices.

I struggle with depression and grief, and started better help to get support and guidance with the emotions I was going through. Mauricio was an amazing counselor, giving me worksheets and tips to try. He helped give me different perspectives and guidance on how to live with my grief. I really liked how he had life stories that helped relate to what I am going through. I’m very happy with the entire experience.

Mauricio Mairena is kind, thoughtful, professional and an all around great resource. He challenges me in the best ways and I actually look forward to our sessions. My original therapist canceled on me the night before I first session and I was totally bummed. However, looking back now. It was all apart of Gods plan and I’m so grateful it worked out the way that they did. “All things work together for the good of them that love the Lord.” Amen.

Mauricio is very kind hearted and non judgmental. I was scared to open up about my situation and being perceived in the wrong way but I never felt that once. Mauricio listened and gave me feel a sense of relief and clarity regarding my predicament. If your looking for a therapist, look no further.
