I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT# 101210) providing bilingual (Spanish) psychotherapy services in San Diego, CA. Itzel, helped create and currently operates as both a psychotherapist providing treatment and managing the behind the scenes operations of Well-Mamas Counseling. She works with individuals and couples in the prenatal and postpartum period. Itzel has a special interest in working with moms navigating their motherhood journey who may be struggling with depression, anxiety and past or current experiences of trauma. Itzel approaches clients with compassion and understanding, as those entering therapy are doing so in their most vulnerable moments. As each individual and family presents with unique needs she understand that a one-size-fits-all approach does not support meaningful change or healing. Itzel’s strength-based approach helps individuals and families uncover resources and inner strengths to help achieve therapeutic goals. Itzel is intentional and integrates holistic and evidence-based practices to help people heal and create meaningful change in the present time. Itzel is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) psychotherapy and uses this approach to help individuals heal from distressing life experiences. She also works with couples and parents utilizing the Gottman Method and facilitates the workshop for Bringing Baby Home a workshop series that prepares couples for life with a baby.
