About me

Welcome! My name is Yolanda Batres-Espinoza, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I received my Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy at Fuller Theological Seminary with an emphasis in Medical Family Therapy. I developed my passion for psychotherapy at the age of eight when I first had a therapist of my own. From then on, I was determined to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and help others as I was helped during my youth.

I am an LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapist and a member of the community. My career began with working in community mental health agencies and providing mental health services to individuals and families from underserved communities within East Los Angeles. I have helped many families break through the stigma of therapy, and I have experience in treating diverse individuals and families living with trauma, depression, anxiety, and many other issues. I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I believe therapy gives us the tools to take control of our lives, and I would love to work together with you to help provide the tools you need to take control of your life. I provide therapy in both English and Spanish, and I provide therapy to individuals and families from age 12 and up.
