About Me

Reaching out for help when life gets overwhelming can be difficult, so I would like to applaud you for taking this first step towards seeking support! I believe that you are the expert on your own life, and I'd like to help you uncover your own individual strengths and potential to help you meet your goals. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 7 years experience working as a mental health counselor in California. I have worked with many individuals and families to address a wide variety of common life issues, including depression, symptoms related to Bipolar Disorder, low self-esteem, grief and loss, anxiety, trauma, family conflicts and relationship problems.

I enjoy working with a diverse range of individuals from many different backgrounds and I strive to create a comfortable, non-judgmental environment for anyone and everyone to discuss what is bothering them. I tailor my therapeutic approach to each individual depending on their unique needs and goals, using a Solution Focused, Humanistic framework as well as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) tools and skills.

If you are currently feeling stuck, I'd be honored to help you get moving again towards the life you want.

I’ll be vacant from the app for several months, but just dropping a message on any random day, she responds back within 24 hrs no matter what.

Mindy has been so supportive. Even when I couldn't afford the service, she checked up on me and sent me messages that made me feel really cared about.

Mindy Edwards is very easy to talk with. She listens and offers support without judgment. It's almost like talking with a close friend but is there to listen to what others might not want to hear. I feel as if I can unload my issues on her and focus on my work and personal relationships and responsibilities without carrying all the negative energy.

Written by I.S. on Jul 19, 2018 after counseling with Mindy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

She's been very dedicated to assisting me and things happening in my life. If she ever notices I am not active for days or weeks at a time, she will check up on me to let me know she is still here if I ever need to talk or vent or anything. She has been very supportive.

Written by J.A. on Feb 22, 2018 after counseling with Mindy for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and grief

Mindy has been great to talk to about my Dad's death. She reminds me to be gentle and kind with myself, which doesn't always come easy especially during this time of grief. I am fortunate that is she knowledgeable, trustworthy and kind. Talking with Mindy comes easy; it's like talking with a friend.
