My Background and Approach
I am Maria Guerrero, a California Board of Behavioral Sciences (CA BBS) Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT #115692) located in Lafayette, CA. With a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA and training in clinical psychology, I empower my clients to overcome their challenges and support them in finding the peace and healing needed to thrive in life. As a therapist, I help individuals develop an understanding of their emotions, cope with anxiety and depression through the use of helpful tools, teach them how to effectively communicate, and provide grief and crisis management. I specialize in working with all genders, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, bodies, and sexual orientations. Depending on my client’s needs and goals, I incorporate a range of interventions from various modalities such as Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution Focused, Emotional Focused Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy.

Every day is a fresh start, a new opportunity to reset, and I am excited to witness your growth, healing, and development. With me, you are always welcome and have a safe space to be who you are.
