Angelina Gutierrez, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in the State of California (#15820)

I have a decade of experience supporting youth, adults, and families in a variety of therapeutic settings including middle schools and high schools, family homes, group homes, juvenile halls/probation camps, hospitals, and community clinics. My past clients include children ages 5-17 as well as adults 18-45, many of whom have experienced significant trauma, grief/loss, challenging life transitions, and cross-cultural issues.

I work with children, families, and adults who are struggling with:

  • Trauma (physical and emotional)
  • Grief/loss including death, divorce, and medical diagnoses
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Impulsivity
  • Self-esteem/self-worth
  • Immigration & acculturation challenges
  • Relationship issues
  • Cultural identity
  • Behavioral Problems in children and adolescents

As a bilingual, bicultural (Cuban/Mexican) clinician, I find it extremely important to include all parts of your cultural identity in the healing process. Together we will create a realistic plan to overcome your challenges and enhance your overall mental wellness. I can use a variety of evidence-based, culturally sensitive techniques tailored to you or your loved one including:

  • Normalizing experiences and differences
  • Fostering corrective emotional experiences
  • Play therapy for creative and emotional expression
  • Somatic techniques
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Strategies for intrusive, distressing thoughts
    Increasing coping mechanisms (more tools for your tool belt!)
  • Teaching self-care practices
  • Helping identify strengths
  • Incorporating cultural and spiritual practices

I strongly believe that healing and growth are fostered through first forming a safe, trusting relationship between client and clinician. It is both an honor and a privilege to walk side by side with people through some of life’s most difficult moments. I will use my skills and life experiences to provide you or your loved one a welcoming self-paced therapeutic environment to process what you are going through, collaboratively set goals, and learn new wellness skills.
