Areli Guajardo, LCSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am a Licenced Clinical Social Worker. I provide psychotherapy to teens and adults struggling with life stressors, having difficulty adjusting to life changes, relationship problems, loss, self-esteem as well as people struggling with symptoms of depression, anxiety, and trauma. I use evidence-based practices that are effective in improving people's quality of life.
I believe that everyone should have a safe and healing place to work through life’s difficulties. I strive to develop a strong therapeutic alliance by using a client-centered approach. I provide a non-judgemental space where clients can feel safe and empowered to begin their healing process.
Sessions are tailored to the client's needs and what they are seeking from therapy. During our first visit, an assessment will be completed, we will start building rapport as well as a care plan which will include the client's goals and objectives. Clients will take away skills and tools to use on their day-to-day to cope with their symptoms and stressors. Clients will be able to process what is underneath those symptoms and behavior and develop healthier ways of thinking.
