I am an LA native, first generation Thai-American and passionate about mental health.

I also focus on new ways to help Abundance Therapy Center grow, stay committed to helping our clients, and provide the best experience possible when visiting our office. I enjoy assisting our clients and staff, and always look forward to talking with familiar friends of Abundance.

KARINA DIAZ

Lead Care Coordinator

As the lead care coordinator at Abundance Therapy Center, I am grateful to be able to connect individuals and families with someone who can help! Should you ever have a question about scheduling, billing, or any other concerns regarding the practice please feel free to reach out.

 

My goal is to make sure every client of ours is well taken care of. During my time at Abundance, I have made wonderful connections with clients and therapists that have greatly impacted my life! I look forward to continuing my career in the mental health field.

 

I am currently pursuing my masters in counseling to soon become a Marriage and Family therapist myself! I am a major mental health advocate and want to give back to the community in any way that I can. During my free time, I like to meditate and take long walks with my fur baby. Self-care is key!

ERIN GARDINER

Intake Care Coordinator

I am delighted to be here at Abundance in my third year of living in the Los Angeles area. I became interested in working in mental health care after discovering how much mental health professionals have meant to me in my life. I am planning to obtain a Masters in Social Work to further my career, and hope to one day work with a diverse population of people in need of social services. I am particularly interested in urban housing initiatives and providing accessible healthcare to all.

As Care Coordinator, I will be assisting with scheduling and matching our new clients to a clinician that is right for them. I will also be helping to complete requests for records and letters, such as ESA Recommendations, from both clients and third-parties.

In my free time, my favorite things to do are hang out with my cat, Tilly, and try to bake everything I see on The Great British Baking Show.

Anna Arsenian

ANNA ARSENIAN

Intake Care Coordinator

My name is Anna Arsenian and I am so excited to be apart of the Abundance Therapy Center Care Team. I became interested in mental health the second I took a psychology class. My current aspirations are to continue my education and become a LMFT. I have been a Los Angeles resident all my life and love it! I speak Armenian, English and working on my Russian.

As a care coordinator at Abundance Therapy Center, I am grateful to be able to connect individuals and families with someone who can help. I connect clients with a therapist best suited for their needs, and assist in scheduling appointments. As Care Coordinators, we are the first point of contact for any new clients. We coordinate the intake process through screening new referrals, handling intake forms, scheduling new intakes, keeping client demographic info up to date, and assisting with any scheduling changes/reschedules. If you’d like to begin the process of finding someone specific to what you’re needing, I am happy to help.

My hobbies outside of work include the beach, history and spending time with my loved ones.
