Hello. My name is Joselyn and I am a Bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.I graduated from Alliant International University where I received my Doctorate in Psychology, as well as my Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy.I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from University of California, Irvine where I majored in Psychology and Social Behavior, and minored in Chicano Studies.
Symptoms and behaviors I have worked with before are youth with depression, anxiety, oppositional defiant behavior, conduct disorder, ADHD, auditory or visual hallucinations, suicide ideation, self-harming behaviors, low-self esteem, family conflict, and trauma, among others.
As a therapist, I firmly believe the importance of being an ally and partner in this journey where my client feels supported, cared for, acknowledged, validated, and heard. I feel that one of the best qualities I have, as a therapist, is being transparent. Transparency builds trust and honesty. The therapeutic relationship I develop with my clients is crucial in the overall progress of treatment.
As a bilingual therapist, I primarily work with monolingual Spanish speaking parents and their children. Although I can provide treatment within different modalities, my main “lens” of treatment is through Functional Family Therapy (FFT). FFT is an approach to working with family with youth at risk. My main focus through the use of FFT is to strengthen relationships in the family by opening up communication and reframing negative behavior’s by putting them within a positive relational context.

Early childhood and pre-adolescence can be a challenging time for children and parents alike. Parents often feel unprepared or do not understand their role in supporting their child’s emotional development. During the early childhood years, the quality of the relationship that is developed between the child and the parents can greatly influence the growth and development of the child. Parents play a critical role in modeling how to respond to strong feelings. Children need help and practice to develop their capacity to cope with and manage a variety of emotions. Feelings and behavior are closely linked; therefore, when feelings are not well managed, children’s ability to think can be impaired and maladaptive behaviors can result which could negatively impact the relationship between the child and parent. Sometimes parents can feel lost or have a painful sense of not being a “good enough” parent, even a well-meaning and conscientious parent is not free from reacting with anger or frustration when their child misbehaves. I am determined to create a safe space to discuss these frustrations and insecurities about parenting in order to strengthen and foster the relationship between the child and the parent.
I specialize in treating children and young adolescents with emotional, behavioral, and relational difficulties. I provide individual and dyadic family therapy utilizing an attachment-based theoretical framework. With a collaborative approach, I treat a variety of concerns including, early trauma, anxiety, depression, parent-child relationship problems, developmental and behavioral concerns. My view of the therapeutic process helps to support the many needs of the child, including healthy development, family relationships, and social and academic support.
My training in Play Therapy, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, allows me to integrate various relational concepts and modalities into my work with families. The collaborative therapeutic work will facilitate development of stronger relationships, social skills and coping tools to confront life’s challenges.

It takes vulnerability and courage to reach out, especially when we are in pain. When working with clients, I do my best to co-create a safe containing environment that allows us to explore, integrate, change, and accept difficult aspects of our lived experience. This is accomplished through the exploration of how the past comes into the present moment and by working in the relational space between therapist and client. Therapy is an ongoing process that helps us build our reflective capacity, emotional intelligence, and innate resiliency.
I specialize in working with individuals, couples, families, adolescents, and children that have experienced repetitive and developmental trauma. I also specialize in the treatment of depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, and substance abuse which often co-occur with trauma. I have experience in working with individuals struggling with adult ADHD. I deeply understand the challenges of care-taking and being a member of the sandwich generation. I have a strong affinity for veterans, first responders, law enforcement, their families and the challenges that come with those chosen professions. I am also LGBTQIA friendly.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me and how I work. I look forward to meeting with you!
