About Stephanie Caballero

 

stephanie

Hello! My name is Stephanie Caballero and I am Marriage and Family Therapist Intern who works with individuals and families of all ages. I am fluent in English and Spanish. I believe that providing a warm and safe environment is key for clients to explore their challenges and discover their healing.

I received my education at University of California, Irvine in Social Science: Multicultural Studies and Literary Journalism. UCI provided me with experiences that shed light on different cultural issues that affect people of specific backgrounds. I received my graduate education from Azusa Pacific University in Clinical Psychology where I discovered my passion in working with children, adolescents and families by helping them discover their individual uniqueness while strengthening the bond within the family.

During therapy, I allow conversation to flow naturally and I integrate a gentle curiosity about the present and your past. I would like to understand how relationships within your family and experiences affect your every day life, while going at your pace. I have worked with adults suffering from depression, life changes, marital or couples issues, anxiety, self esteem, job loss and exploring the effects of past events. I have experience working with children and teenagers. I often include non-directive play therapy with children to promote a healthy form of expression through play and talk therapy with teenagers, to help them communicate issues related to bullying, ADHD, bereavement, family relationships, break ups, divorce/ separation, trauma and self esteem, oppositional defiant disorder and anxiety.

I hope to have the opportunity to meet you and provide help.
