About me

Hola! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Southern California and I've been practicing for over 6 years. I received my master's from the University of Southern California in 2012. I specialize in Trauma-Informed Care, meaning that I recognize that people can have many different types of trauma in their lives from childhood or more recent that impacts their day to day life. I've worked in community-based organizations, with children, adolescents, adults and older adults dealing with depression, anxiety and various other mental health and emotional challenges related to unresolved trauma.

In my practice, I have found the best way to collaborate with people in their healing journey is to listen, be empathetic, remain objective and use a cognitive behavioral approach to reflect back patterns that could be contributing to unhappiness. My focus is strength based, recognizing the individual's ability to make positive changes through the therapeutic process. I also like to incorporate expressive arts into my practice as a form of healing from trauma. I believe that through creativity and encouragement we can activate a ripple effect of happiness in others and ourselves.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Mirna Beltran. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

She is a wonderful listener and knows when to interrupt, give advice, refocus, or helps me to dig deeper into whatever I need to share. Mirna has tremendously helped me to reconnect with myself and has provided a safe place to explore that without judgement.

We’ve been working together for about a month and I feel so relieved to have a therapist as supportive and caring as Mirna! If I’m having a tough time, I can count on her to give me an exercise or encouragement to help. She’s amazing!

Mirna is a God send. I honestly can't emphasize enough how wonderful it has been to have her listening and supporting me. She is very professional and sympathetic. If there was anyway I could recommend her for more praise I would.
