My Approach to Helping

My name is Nelida Padron and I am a bilingual (Spanish) psychotherapist and Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. I provide mental health services throughout the state of California, online via telehealth and specialize in treating Anxiety, Depression and Life Transitions. I also provide Forensic Psychological Evaluations for Immigration as well as Independent ERMHS evaluations for Special Education.

When looking at your needs, I take all parts of your life into consideration. This includes your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual experiences to help you identify ways to develop a healthier relationship with yourself and others. I also hold space for and invite conversations about how systemic and intergenerational cultural factors impact your presenting concerns while establishing a sense of safety.

At the end of the day, I meet you where you are “at” in life with an open mind and strive to provide you with supportive guidance on your unique wellness journey. Reach out and connect with me for more information or to schedule your free 10-15 minute consultation. I’d love to hear from you.
