Hi, I'm Mariana

I am a licensed psychotherapist in the state of California. This is my passion career path and I value quality and sound clinical work. I strive to nurture a highly collaborative, connected, present and engaged therapy relationship. I skillfully blend talk therapy, mindfulness, and creative arts with expert somatic trauma therapies. My understanding of your energy and emotions in the moment inform my choice of strategies to best meet your needs. 

My journey, like that of many professional and entrepreneurial women that have a "together life", hasn't been easy. I have experienced divorce, and all of the struggles of adapting and acculturating to living in the US, as I was born and raised in Peru. Therapy and a holistic and somatic approach to healing, have helped me face the challenges of being a woman, an immigrant, and a full-time professional while learning to heal and grow. 

More importantly, because of my use of holistic and somatic therapy as an adult, I have been able to learn about self-love, self-compassion, and creating a life that feels good from the inside out.
