About Me

I have 18 years of clinical experience in various community mental health, dual diagnosis, junior college, and private practice settings. I counsel individuals dealing with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, trauma, and relationship issues. I focus on helping clients explore and clarify their personal goals, recognize their strengths, regain a sense of control, and develop the tools they need to move forward in their lives. I utilize family systems and the cognitive-behavioral approaches when conducting individual, couples and family therapy. I also integrate Christian concepts, when appropriate, in assisting clients in finding more meaning and purpose in their lives. I know change is challenging and it takes courage and commitment to reach out for help. I believe that a supportive, compassionate therapeutic relationship is the basis for change. In the comfort and convenience of your own home, I will help you choose the best path to accomplish your goals and achieve a more fulfilling life.



I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) for the past 9 years. I received my Master’s of Science Degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from California State University, Northridge. I have been trained in Seeking Safety, TF-CBT, and Positive Parenting Program.

Reviews

Written by R.A. on Feb 18, 2020 after counseling with Priscilla for 5 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, and coaching

After just one session, I can tell that Priscilla is very kind, supportive and caring. Sometimes a person who is struggling just wants to know that they don’t have to struggle alone. I am very hopeful that she will be able to help me reach my personal goals. Thank you for being you Priscilla!
