Hi! I'm Lynette Alarcon I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Southern California. I have been in the field for 5 years treating Individuals with depression, anxiety, interpersonal issues, trauma, and addiction.
I place a lot of emphasis on therapeutic rapport. I strongly believe that a good therapeutic bond is a key intervention in helping clients reach their goals. I also enjoy implementing CBT, Solution Focused and DBT aspects into my work.
I enjoy working with different demographics that may be struggling with anxiety, depression, thought disorder, self-image, and interpersonal issues.
My communication style
I typically prefer to learn what best suits the client. In my experience communication style is part of culture. When needed I am comfortable being direct yet supportive to assist clients in reaching their goals.
My journey to therapy
I really enjoy learning about and getting to know people from different backgrounds. I have learned that taking the time to try and understand someone with empathy and active listening can change that person's world.
My goals for you
Goal setting is always collaborative and should take into consideration the clients' life stage, developmental level, cultural and or spiritual needs, and family dynamics.
My first session with you
Clients feel as though they are sitting down for a warm cup of tea.
