Our services


Mi nombre es Joanna y soy psicoterapeuta licenciada en trabajo social. Recibí mi educación en las universidades de UCLA y USC. Mi manera de acercarme y trabajar con uds es de una manera relajada. Las personas con las cuales he trabajado me describen como una persona cuidadosa, compasiva y alguien que les brinda apoyo con un buen sentido del humor. Me gusta enfocarme en poder identificar sus fortalezas y propagar sus usos para superar sus obstáculos. Estoy aquí para ayudarte a navegar las cosas que encuentres difíciles ahorita y ofrezcas un espacio seguro en el cual pueden ser abiertos y honestos sin el temor de ser juzgados.

He trabajado con todas las edades, en diferentes capacidades en español e inglés. Mi especialidad es trabajar con sobrevivientes de trauma. Les brindo años de experiencia, buena energía, intervenciones interesantes y diferentes con una personalidad carismática. Yo siempre me aseguro de hacer todo tratamiento único y específico dependiendo de las necesidades del individuo. Ofrezco un espacio seguro en el cual te involucró, motivó y te escuchó sin juzgar. 


I am a Peruvian therapist that grew up in the city of Cudahy so I am grateful to be in position where I can provide services to my Spanish speaking community. I received my education from UCLA and USC and my work is rooted in mental health, personal growth, radical self-care and self- esteem. I advocate, motivate and educate on innovative healing to achieve a wholesome life.

Over the last 12 years I've had the privilege of holding multiple roles within the therapy world. I was at schools, foster care, adoptions, military bases, hospitals, non-profits, private practices, community clinics, family resource centers, inpatient, outpatient programs and even the substance abuse world. This allowed me to work with folks from all walks of life. I tailor treatment to each individual and offer a safe environment where I listen without judging you, motivate and engage you.​ I bring years of experience, good energy, and unique interventions with a charismatic personality.

My name is Kianté McKinley, I am an Associate Clinician Social Worker. As a Black Queer Male who breaks all social norms, I couldn’t find many safe spaces to heal, be myself, and be vulnerable… so I created one! I received my education from Azusa Pacific University and The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. I consider myself an active therapist, combining experience, education, creativity, and a sense of humor with a down-to-earth, realistic approach to therapy.

My role as a therapist is to provide a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment for clients to work through a wide range of problems. I work with clients as a partner and assist them in developing more useful ways of thinking and behaving. I am a trauma-informed therapist and assist with getting back in touch with the needs of the mind and body. I believe we all have inherited strength and power that we sometimes cannot see for ourselves. My hope is that with time and the power of human connection, we are able to learn more about ourselves and love ourselves wholeheartedly.
