Yolanda Padilla, LMFT

I enjoy working with teens and adults, with a special interest in BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ mental health. I provide a safe space for clients to identify feelings and utilize EMDR therapy to help clients process past traumas. I have a passion for working with adults struggling with anxiety, depression, difficulty saying "NO" to others, and childhood trauma. I have experience working with young adults as they work towards finding their identity while transitioning towards the exciting and sometimes scary transition into adulthood.


I am especially sensitive to the experiences of marginalized groups and am passionate about working with clients from diverse backgrounds, cultures and sexual orientations. My approach is tailored to meet you where you are at. Each person has a unique reason for choosing to begin therapy. Whatever your situation is, I would like the opportunity to walk alongside you as you take the brave first steps into your healing journey.
