Raymond Hernandez, LMFT #115217

 

 

 

 

I empathize with my clients and try to walk alongside them, putting my feet in their shoes. What better way to help a person than to walk a mile in their shoes, see where they've been, and discover where they want to go. As your therapist, I believe that each individual has the strength to overcome what is hindering their life and to learn what they have control over.

 

My experience has been with children, youth, adolescents, couples, and adults. The specialties that I work in are special needs population, depression, anxiety, behavior modification, ADHD, Emotionally disturbed, Individualized Educational Plans (IEP), and parenting.

Kiavash Ebadat, LMFT# 125966

Many times we tend to hide our insecurities. When we feel worthless or hopeless we cover it by isolating, keeping busy, or we may become defensive or try anything to deny or avoid the issue. This is a way of coping that helps us survive in a world that is full of opinions and judgments. However it is the opinions and judgements we have of ourselves that can be more damaging as we are our own worst critics. We may have thought we have been handling our issues effectively by avoiding or hiding. But now we are at a point where we are overwhelmed with unresolved issues and they have become more complicated and difficult to overcome. We are being forced to confront our issues while in relationships with others, and that makes us feel very uncomfortable. 

 

However, feeling uncomfortable is how you begin changing and overcoming challenges in your life. Come join me as we embark on your life journey and see which parts you have avoided that are giving you a difficult time today. We will work towards helping you overcome your past so that you can finally move forward in a healthy and positive way. You will also learn to appreciate yourself and the experiences that made you the person you are today. Are you ready? Looking forward to meeting you.
