Hi, I'm Justina.

I am an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor and National Certified Counselor. I believe every client has a story to tell and I am passionate about helping people tell their stories and stand in their truths. Standing in your truth and accepting your story can be a very painful growing process. I am here to support you in finding yourself by growing through your struggles and pain.

 

My counseling style is humanistic, client-centered, and integrative. I use a mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), art therapy, cinematherapy, and strengths-based approaches. I specialize in working with the military veteran community and clients who identify with experiencing substance use and addictions, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, and stress related to work/academics.

 

I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Social Behavior from the University of California, Irvine. I have worked in many different settings and with different populations including a dual-diagnosis residential facility, outpatient narcotic treatment center, college campuses, intensive outpatient/partial hospitalization program, and virtually.

 

In my spare time, I work on building my non-profit to support combat veterans and wounded warriors who experience suicidal ideations through the use of outdoor therapy, spa therapy, and creative arts. When I’m not in the office, you can find me baking, collecting recipes to preserve my cultural heritage, taking photos, and searching for the best dumplings and beef noodle soup in LA.
