Hello, my name is Paula Corano and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT # 83322) in the state of California. I graduated from Pepperdine University with a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology. I am also a certified to provide Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) by the University of California, Davis.
For the past 10 years, my focus has been to provide a strength-based approach to promote change and growth in individuals, children, couples and families experiencing functional impairment. I like to approach therapy in a holistic manner, supporting my clients in solving problems by defining goals and changing unhelpful thinking patterns, while also providing empathy and practical feedback. My awareness and appreciation of cross-cultural understanding grows continually and I highly respect and value individuals who come from different cultural backgrounds.
In addition to my specialty in the treatment of children with behavioral and emotional problems through PCIT, I also have extensive experience in helping individuals, families, and couples cope with a diverse range of issues, including stress management, relationship issues, difficulties in adjusting to major life changes, trauma, coping with loss, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.
My therapeutic approach is centered on what matters most to the client. My style is both empathetic and goal-oriented. I respect clients for their perseverance in navigating through obstacles of life, and feel privileged to take part in their journey of making positive changes and finding more personal fulfillment. You have already made the first step, and I would welcome the opportunity to help you in that journey.

So far things have been great with Paula. We have met twice now and I look forward to continuing with services.
Paula is incredible! I love my sessions with her. I wouldn’t have been able to get through a difficult time in my life without her expertise
Paula is great! We have been doing work together for more than a year now. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate. I feel comfortable sharing what is really going on in my life with her and we have made some real breakthroughs in our work together. I cannot recommend her enough!
Paula is the best. She’s been incredibly patient and kind in helping me work through my issues ad nauseum. I can’t imagine what I’d do without her support and I am so grateful to have found her on this platform.
I literally had to take a moment to congratulate Paula on finding her true path/calling after speaking with her for just two weeks. Paula is so in tune with where I am at and what I am trying to express even when I find it difficult to put into words. She is patient and encouraging and I genuinely feel supported and heard which gives me even more of a desire to continue on this path of healing.
Paula is so much more responsive than I imagined anyone would be. Her advice is always helpful, and she really seems to be looking out for what is best for me.
Paula is an excellent therapist she's very hands on and supportive.
I have had several experiences with counselors and Paula is fantastic!!! I’m so glad I was paired up with her. My experience using BetterHelp has been phenomenal!! Thank you!!!
Paula has been a great help. She is very quick to respond with very detailed questions, concerns, and analysis. If I was avoiding responding for any reason she would always reach out to make sure I always knew she was there for me. I never feel shy to share anything with her and I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need.
The best therapist I’ve ever had, you can feel her compassion and support through the phone. She’s dedicated, committed and focused on helping you through your goals. She always makes you feel heard and listen to. She’s really awesome!
Ms. Corano is exceptional. I couldn't have asked to be paired with anyone better. She goes above and beyond in working to understand who I am as a person. She speaks to be through wisdom but also grace. She always offers multiple approaches so that not only I can see the paths and make choices of my own but also I'm not being told what to do as the only way. I thought I would dislike speaking with someone or that I wouldn't get anything out of it but now I'm excited every time I hear back from her, which is more often than I anticipated. Even offering a kingdom to her could not fully express my gratitude. 11/10
