My name is Marianna Aguilar, and I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #139892. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients learn how to improve their daily functioning and overall quality of life.
I utilize various therapeutic approaches but mainly draw upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy allows us to identify faulty/unhelpful ways of thinking, learning patterns/unhelpful behavior and helps clients create and utilize positive coping skills.
I enjoy working with individuals, adolescents, couples, and families. My areas of focus are trauma, depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, and everyday life stressors.
My communication style
I'm very passionate about creating a safe, accepting, and nonjudgmental space for clients to reflect, heal, and grow. Working with me feels like talking with someone you can trust and who will help you focus on your needs and goals.
My journey to therapy
I genuinely enjoy helping others learn how to navigate through this thing called "life" that we all experience but experience differently through our own unique experiences and circumstances.
My goals for you
I collaborate with my clients to help them determine what their goals are. Once that's determined, we work together to determine how the client is going to reach their goals.
My first session with you
A welcoming attitude and a genuine desire to understand things from your perspective and experience.
