It can be overwhelming as a parent when your child is experiencing emotional and behavioral concerns. My focus in my practice is working with children, families, and adolescents on a variety of difficult topics. My areas of expertise with children include neglect, divorce, trauma, aggressive outbursts, anxiety, grief and loss, and abuse.
My goal is to offer a safe space to openly express and explore these areas. I use a humanistic/ attachment focused approach and I utilize a variety of interventions (Play Therapy, Parent Child Interaction Therapy, mindfulness, sand-tray and Trauma-Focused CBT) to best fit each individual client I work with. I have extensive experience working with young children (0-5) and have training in several modalities for this population (Watch, Wait and Wonder, Preschool PTSD, Theraplay).
I received both my BA in Psychology and my MS in Counseling from California State University, Fullerton. I have experience working in school based counseling as well as community mental health.
Hello my name is Mayra, I am a bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family
Therapist located in Rancho Cucamonga, California. I received my
master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from University of La Verne. Most
of my work has been through non-profit organizations, including community
mental health and school-based treatment. I have worked in the social
services field for the past 14 years.
In the last four years my clinical focus has been children as young as 8
years old into young adulthood as well as families. It truly has been a
privilege to work with children, adolescents, young adults as well as entire
families struggling with life balance, work or school problems, stress, loss,
trauma, depression and anxiety. The impact that these life problems have,
can be overwhelming and difficult to manage. I provide support to help
manage these feelings, and barriers to the wellbeing of individuals.
I am a compassionate, warm, and direct therapist. I am committed to
helping individuals, and families live an enjoyable and fulfilling life. My
approach is tailored to each individual needs, and also utilize evidence-
based practices to treat trauma, depression and anxiety. I strive to help my
clients unlearn the behaviors, patterns, and beliefs that brought them into
therapy by learning new ways of coping; to help them reach a place where
they are emotionally healthier, more authentic, and better prepared to take
on new challenges.
I look forward to meeting you, collaborating in enhancing your autonomy in
a safe place where you can find the healing you have been looking for.
With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.
A special Message: As we enter into a new way of life of social distancing our typical support systems and activities that once kept us functioning and sane are now altered. This brings a new set of challenges that none of us could have predicted or prepared for. Although these challenges we face are unprecedented I believe it is in our genetic makeup to overcome them. During this time I am happy to offer live video or phone sessions that are HIPPA secure.
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (License Number 114926) and a member of CAMFT (California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists).

Welcome! I’m so honored to share this space with you. No matter the reasons that bring us together, I recognize the privilege it is to connect with you and create a therapeutic alliance to reach the goals you have for your life. Whether you are seeking growth, change, healing, or life clarity, I invite you to join me in experiencing valuable life transformation. My counseling approach is rooted in the belief that people experience growth and change when they are supported, empowered, heard, and felt. I know how important these dynamics are and I aim to provide a space for you that is healing and affirming. Together we can help you access deeper emotional intelligence and move through troublesome issues, discovering your own valuable and unique solutions.
With a 10+ year background in counseling, trauma, youth work, and domestic violence, I remain passionate about mental health and making a difference in the lives of children, individuals, and families experiencing psychological trauma and distress. Supporting historically marginalized groups through culturally responsive services and interventions is a significant part of my life’s work and it fuels my passion both personally and professionally.
As a therapist, I have appreciated working with clients of all races, gender identities, and backgrounds and I also honor the comfortability that some clients feel in working with a fellow person of color. I am here for you. I identify with the LGBTQ+ community and look forward to working with clients in need of a safe space to process with a therapist that understands the unique needs of LGBTQ+ community.
As a Black and Native therapist I incorporate many healing practices and clinical interventions in my sessions. I believe in saving space for spirituality as appropriate and while I do not ascribed to one specific religious practice, I recognize the therapeutic relevance and connection to spirituality and self-identity. I can incorporate mindfulness, mediation, and affirmations in session with you.
I am a California Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC #7498) and a Northern Illinois University graduate. I attended NIU for both my undergraduate degree in Family and Child Studies and my Masters degree in Counseling with a specialization in School and Mental Health Counseling. I have significant experience in the areas of trauma, relationship issues, self-esteem needs, women’s issues, anxiety, depression, emotion regulation, racial trauma, youth counseling, and domestic violence.
One of the biggest things I’ve learned in my years as a therapist is that therapy is a meaningful alliance. It’s a connection and shared experience that can prove to be life changing with a shared commitment and solid therapeutic relationship. I look forward to connecting with you face to face and I send all the love, light, positivity, and support in the meantime.

Hey there and welcome!
I am a body-positive, sex-positive, culture, race, belief-system, LGBTQ+, you positive therapist. It is my
goal to really see you and understand everything that goes into where you are right now in life. I use my
personal experience as a person who feels things (no robot therapist here) and has experienced trauma
to help me understand you and to help you understand you. I believe shaming you won’t get you where
you are going – only empathy, grace, and understanding.
If you are looking for a perfect therapist, I might not be the therapist for you. Have I locked myself out of
the office before a session? Yes. Could it happen again? Also, yes. It is this humanness that I bring to
therapy. For some of my lovely clients, I am the only one they can share their humanity with because
they have been shamed so long for having feelings, needs, and opinions. I am looking to have a space for
you to be who you are – the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Also, I am not going to tell you how you should feel or what you should do in your situation. How you
feel is valid and let’s look into what you authentically want and how to get you there using your beliefs,
needs, cultural experiences, and personal barriers.
I love supporting people who have experienced trauma, attachment injuries from their past, imposter
syndrome, anger, and anxiety. My style is to find out how to meet the needs of your emotions to help
you work with (instead of against) how you feel and to help you nurture parts of you that were
wounded by loved ones, society, and maybe even you. I use humanistic or person-centered therapy
approaches with emotionally-focused and internal family systems interventions and a dash of cognitive-behavioral mindfulness techniques.
Feel free to reach out so we can start supporting you back to you. Looking forward to meeting you!

I am amazed at the resilience of the human race. We are incredible beings that learn to adapt, resolve,

process. It is my desire is to be a guide in your journey towards wellness.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a little over 14 years’ experience providing mental
health services to a variety of populations, ranging from young children to older adults. While I have a
wide array of experience working with different populations, my specialty is working with children,
teens, and women. I have experience working with children, teens and adults who struggle with
behavioral issues, suicidal attempts and ideation, Attention-Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Depression,
Anxiety, Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Intellectual Disabilities, and

I believe relationships are the most powerful tool we can use for change and healing. I use a person
centered approach because I believe that supportive and empathetic understanding fosters growth and
healing. I also use a variety of tools from other theoretical approaches as supplements to enhance
treatment, including play therapy, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy, because
I believe in using what works best for my clients.
Thank you for taking time to get to know a little bit about me and my approach. If you would like to
meet with me, I would be honored to have the privilege of working alongside you.

Meaningful, healthy connection is the yin to the yang that is the internal self. Research supports that when we do not receive secure experiences around intimacy we develop a higher risk for developing psychopathology and physical disorders. My approach to therapy entails utilizing the Interpersonal Process by providing a collaborative partnership and a secure space that will allow you to explore, understand, and work through the underlying core conflicts that contribute to disconnect, avoidance, self-sabotage, anger, unhealthy coping strategies, anxiety, and depression.
I have over 5 years of experience helping individuals, couples, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds with a variety of needs and concerns. I value the principle of client response specificity and work to mold therapy around your unique self and needs. Every individual is different and must do this work at their own pace and time. It is my goal to join, support, and contribute to your process of growth and wellness in evidence-based ways that empower your autonomy and sense of self.
I have experience in the following areas: Life transitions, Identity development, Complex and attachment trauma, Child and adolescent development, Shame and self-compassion, Communication and conflict resolution, Grief and loss, Anxiety, and Depression. In 2014, I graduated from the California State University at San Bernardino with my Master’s in Clinical/Counseling Psychology. Since graduating, I have focused on developing into a dynamic and resourceful clinician. I will utilize any and all research supported techniques and strategies in helping you to reach your goals.
