About Me

Hello! My name is Olivia Ishak, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Chino Hills, California. I earned my Master's degree in counseling psychology from California Baptist University in 2014. I have seven years’ experience as a therapist, in community mental health, school settings, and private practice. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families to facilitate and promote healthy relationships.

You may not be able to control life problems; however, they may not define you. We can be our worst critics, especially when a problem arises. Despite your challenges, whether personal or relational, it's only one piece of a puzzle and it's beneficial to look at the picture in its entirety. Hardships can have an impact on you; nevertheless, you don't need to handle them alone. My role as your therapist will be to assist you in managing the stressors that come with day-to-day living and help you piece the puzzle together. I use a Client-Centered therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Solution Focused therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to help my clients. These tools are equally effective with addressing stressful and/or traumatic situations through problem solving and providing healthy coping skills that increase self-esteem and self-worth.

My passion is helping others though tough times. I understand that asking for help and starting therapy is difficult. I provide an open and non-judgmental approach to listen to your struggles. I’m here to help navigate through it all. You are not alone. I look forward working alongside you.
