Lourdes P. Estrada

Founder & Clinical Director

LMFT #93409

Hi guys! My name is Lourdes P. Estrada. I am a Bilingual (Spanish/ English) speaking therapist. ​​

I am an alumni from California State University Dominguez Hills and Azusa Pacific University. I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapist. ​

I am a wife and a mother to three boys. I identify myself as a Christian therapist. I believe in the integration of spirituality and mental health. I have been a sole proprietor since August 2016. I have worked in community mental health since 2005. 

I am trained in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Managing  & Adapting Practices (MAP), Trauma, Motivational Interviewing, CORS, FOCUS, Assessment and Diagnosis of children 0-5 (ICARE), Couples Therapy using Gottman Method and Relationship Enhancement skills. I am also trained in using Sand Tray Therapy. 
My approach is integrative. I pull interventions from various models to find your own, unique treatment plan to suit your needs. Therapy is not a "one size fits all" it is very unique to your needs. If  I have to choose I would say I tend to incline to "Client-Centered Therapy".  I believe in working as a team. You are the EXPERT of  YOUR life. 

My goal is to assist you to achieve your highest potential. In life, we have seasons. Some seasons are easier than others. I strive to provide a unique treatment for you. To work in partnership with you and achieve your highest potential.
