Lisa Sloan, LMFT #100507

I have a passion for working with people with a wide range of therapeutic goals. I generally use cognitive behavioral techniques as well as mindfulness and a client centered approach that uses the therapeutic relationship to help be an agent for positive changes. One of my biggest goals for myself is to help all my clients feel welcome and comfortable to be open and be able to process their feelings, secrets and fears. I have vast experience working with young children and adolescence and in these cases will use play therapy and artwork to help process feelings. I also enjoy working with adults with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, grief, and many other issues. I look forward to meeting you and helping you meet your goals.

Chau Prentice, LMFT #90975

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 10 years of clinical experience with a deep commitment to helping others. My clinical background includes serving a broad range of clients with mild to severe mental illnesses working through issues including anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, relationship issues, domestic violence, parenting difficulties, divorced/blended family issues, and stress management. My theoretical orientation draws on psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral approaches, focusing on a balance between both current and past events. My approach also combines a blend of psychoeducation and personal life experiences. My goal is to help provide clarity, self-awareness, and support so clients are able to overcome personal barriers and become empowered to make positive and healthy changes in their lives.

Stephanie Mora, LMFT #116684

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of California, and I have been working in the mental health field since 2012. I have experience working with individuals in residential, community based, school-based, and outpatient settings experiencing depression, anxiety, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Eating Disorders, interpersonal relationship issues, teenage issues, and parenting issues. The clientele that I have worked with also had a variety of different challenges including trauma, self-injurious behavior, suicidal ideation, abuse, grief/loss, transitions and changes, and difficulties adjusting to life stressors.

My approach with my clients is empathetic and supportive. I believe the most important aspect in the therapeutic process is developing a strong rapport with my clients. I cannot expect my clients to share with me their biggest challenges or fears if there is not a therapeutic relationship based on trust, and this begins with utilizing open communication and empathy in getting to know my clients. I want to create a space that is safe and free of judgment.

I specialize in working with children, teenagers, and young adults. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy modalities. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative, Solution-Focused, and Motivational Interviewing. My main goal is to find what will work best with each individual client even if it means using certain interventions from different modalities. This is about what will work best for you not a one size fits all.

You are the expert on you, and your life. I want to work collaboratively with you to identify your needs and develop your goals. You already have some of the tools, but may have difficulty accessing those tools due to stress or other life difficulties. I am here to assist you in accessing the tools you already have, and providing you with new tools to add to your toolbox. We are on this journey together. I take this seriously because I know how nerve wracking it can be to share intimate details about your life with someone.
