Loretta Lopez Herndon is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, whose professional work has been specifically focused on treatment and care for vulnerable populations -- including children requiring trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, foster youth, people in the cycle of domestic violence, and the unsheltered.
My therapeutic approach is trauma-informed care while using the lens of attachment theory and integration of skills for regulation, healthy communication, and boundaries.
I work with clients who have experienced all types of trauma in their lives and are looking for support and empowerment.
My communication style
I am even toned in my communication and provide empathy for my clients. My philosophy is strength-based and non-shaming. I will work where the client is at and without an agenda.
My journey to mental healthcare
I have been a lifelong advocate for marginalized people due to my own life experience. I am driven by helping those in need of more support and empowering them to get their needs met.
My goals for you
I like to be direct with asking clients what they want out of therapy and collaborate in creating goals for therapy.
My first session with you
The first session will be assessing the client's needs, behaviors, and symptoms that brought the client to therapy.
