MICHELLE GARCIA LMFT
Specializing in trauma recovery, relational therapy, and play.
Do you find yourself struggling with low self esteem, developing unhealthy relationships, or chronic depression/anxiety? Does your child struggle with difficult or regressive behaviors? Maybe you have symptoms such as feeling restless, on edge, or having nightmares or flashbacks. All of these symptoms can be signs of unresolved trauma, and there is a path to healing.
Many people seek out therapy to manage symptoms such as stress, difficulties in relationships, and anxiety and depression only to find out that these issues have a deeper root. I can help you or your child learn coping skills, build strong relationships, and experience your emotions in a healthier way. I can also help uncover and resolve the underlying causes of these concerns. I offer a variety of evidenced-based treatments to support you in feeling better today such as EMDR, Theraplay and DBT. Additionally, I incorporate CBT, mindfulness, and trauma-informed yoga to help you feel better in the here and now.
Whether you're a teen or an adult, everyone deserves a trusted person to vent to. I offer 1:1 counseling so that you can get to the core of your issues and live the life you want without fear of judgment.
COUPLES AND FAMILY THERAPY
If you're struggling with communication or building healthy relationships, what better way to address these concerns than through relationships directly? As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have the training to help you develop the relationships you want in your life.
Play is the language of childhood. I use play therapy to help young children process trauma, work through behavioral and mental health concerns, and build self-esteem. Don't be deceived - your kiddo is is doing work in the play room!
