About Me

I am a licensed marriage, family, and child counselor in the state of California. I have over 5 years of experience working as a psychiatric social worker in Monterey County. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar, trauma, relationship conflicts, parenting problems, career challenges, substance use, ADD/ADHD, and interpersonal issues. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and direct. I believe in treating anyone with respect, empathy, and compassion, and I believe people are the experts of their own experiences and life. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. I collaborate with individuals to discuss their needs, concerns, and developing treatment goals to help support and guide them through their journey to wellness.
You are not alone.
I look forward to working with you :)

She's great! Super kind, funny, keeps up with me, thinks about the things I say and then reacts to them rather than just going by a book with sets of questions to ask.

She has been a tremendous help to me. She asks me very insightful questions and provides deep analysis in our sessions. It is my first time doing therapy and I didn't feel awkward speaking my truth to her even from our first meeting. She truly embodies the goal that therapy sets out to achieve. 10 out of 10, would recommend her to anyone.

Noralyn has been such amazing support throughout my quest to improve my mental health. She helped me uncover a lot of feelings and trauma that I thought I had definitely overcome but had just buried deep down. She validated my feelings and concerns and gave me different sets of tools until we found some that worked for me. She is realistic about goal setting and honestly such a great person to talk things over. 10/10 would recommend.

Noralyn is amazing. She’s been wonderful and supportive and can speak in the way I need to hear even if I don’t realize it myself! She’s always been there and went well way above and beyond any job to really be helpful. I don’t know how she does everything she does, she’s basically a superhero.

Noralyn is the 3rd counselor I have been “paired” with on betterhelp. I immediately felt comfortable speaking with her! It was as if she was a long time friend. I feel She has a level of understanding that no other previous counselor has had for my specific problems and general struggles. I feel that she absolutely cares as a individual and truly wants to be part of a healthy healing process for not only myself but probably for all of her clients. I would absolutely recommend her to any close friends or family. Everyone deserves to be paired with a counselor that makes them feel comfortable and listened to the way noralyn does for me.
