Population Focus/About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with a masters degree in marriage and family therapy. I have a down to earth, warm, and compassionate style in sessions and enjoy working with young adults, adults, and couples, particularly from BIPOC communities.

I'm passionate about helping my clients enact the changes they want in their lives such as engaging with thoughts and behaviors in more helpful ways, processing and overcoming trauma, building more connected and healthier relationships and boundaries, and learning coping skills to manage stress, anxiety and depression. I love the work I do and consider it a great privilege to be part of someone's healing and growth, where they are free to be wholly human. I'm passionate about providing holistic, trauma informed, culturally competent, and socially conscious mental health care.

I recognize that seeking therapy can have stigmas attached to it among some marginalized and minority communities that might feel their values, experiences, or backgrounds are misunderstood. It is a commitment of mine to break through these stigmas and barriers coming from these communities myself as a Muslim and child of immigrants. Moreover, I provide therapy within a social justice framework and believe that the personal is political, and therefore, believe that therapy can not be inherently apolitical.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 16 years experience providing therapy. I have a passion for supporting people to work through life's various challenges. I enjoy working with young adults to adults in all stages of life. I believe the client and therapist relationship is key to creating a sense of safety, comfort and trust for my clients to open up, discover their true thoughts and feelings, begin to heal, and feel empowered to handle life's ups and downs. I work with clients to help them feel less alone and less helpless in their circumstances. It is important for me to build a genuine connection with my clients by listening to them, understanding them and gaining insight into their life experience, which allows me to more effectively support and help them through eclectic therapeutic approaches specific to meet each where they are. I want each client to feel heard, accepted and supported during our time together. Ideally treatment will help clients feel they have effectively addressed past and present issues and that they are equipped and capable to conquer any future obstacles as their life moves forward in a more healthy and fulfilling direction.

My counseling style is warm and empathetic. I consider it a privilege to be allowed to know your story and bring any tools I can to help you on your journey. I believe in being an authentic person in therapy sessions, as such my style is interactive and engaging. I believe in challenging the thoughts and patterns which can keep us stuck but always doing so in a respectful and inquisitive manner. My approach is eclectic; I primarily draw from a Client-Centered approach, with a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I do not limit your experience with me to these approaches exclusively, if there is a tool I believe would be of merit from other therapy styles I Iove to incorporate them. I really do believe everyone I meet has strengths and I like to amplify them in our work together. As a bilingual Spanish and English-speaking therapist, I have a passion for helping multicultural families.

I am so grateful to be allowed to help empower you and live the life you strive for.

Population Focus/About Me

Hello, my name is Amanda DeLoreto LMFT # 133634. In my practice I aim to support my clients through different transitions and stages throughout their lives. With all the information we are constantly taking in, it is easy to lose ourselves or feel stuck in different versions of our stories. As a result this can leave us feeling an array of different emotions and confused on where to start. However, the great thing about feeling lost is that it gives us the opportunity to find ourselves again. My goal is to help you disentangle yourself from those stories and embrace all the parts of your own, by reclaiming the authors pen and adding chapters towards telling a story that feels authentically yours. My humanistic and collaborative approach will allow us to connect and provide a safe space for you tell your story without fear of critisim or judgement. I value the therapeutic relationship and aim to help support you in exploring areas of change that help you reach your goals. I utilize various treatment modalities such as Narrative, Solution-focus, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialetical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I have experience in treating women's issues, body image, self-esteem, communication, gender and sexuality , eating disorders, learning disorders, life transitions, stress management, perinatal mental health and post-partum support, Anxiety, OCD, and Depression.

I believe that therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach and I strive to tailor a therapeutic approach to each individual’s needs in treatment.

Population Focus/About Me

As a therapist, I believe empowering the client by providing a safe, warm, collaborative, and culturally aware environment is essential for the healing process. I am passionate about utilizing each session to provide support and assist clients as they learn more about themselves, while also including activities, psychoeducation, art, and more to empower the client. It’s essential to find a balance between identifying ways to challenge yourself while also going at your own pace, so I hope that therapy can help guide that process!

My experience has included working with individuals who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem, self/body image, interpersonal (family, platonic, romantic) relationships, work-life balance, racial trauma, racial identity, boundaries, and assertive communication. I have worked with individuals from children, teens, adults, to older adults in both therapy settings and hospital settings. I primarily incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques with a psychodynamic approach that allow me to better understand how a person's upbringing, relationships, family, and more have impacted how they currently see the world. I also utilize Trauma-informed CBT, along with seeking safety interventions as a way to help clients process traumatic situations they have experienced, while encouraging them as they develop more coping skills to help with emotional regulation and processing trauma.

Jamie has worked for non-profits for over 20 years working with agencies, as well as her private practice in Huntington Beach, California. Bullying is a special area of interest to Jamie, as she has seen and worked with many young people who have been bullied, as well as those who have bullied, through the years. In working with teens and children, Jamie has helped several learn new skills to cope with bullies, and with the bullies to stop their negative behaviors, and their parents to help their children survive and protect them. Jamie’s agencies have included foster care agencies, out-patient mental health, probation department, and group homes working with both teen boys and girls, and their families.

Since recently working with adults in a psychiatric, partial-hospital setting, and doing research for her doctorate program, Jamie became interested, and wanted to help patients suffering from mental illness, such as chronic and persistent mental illness, such as schizophrenia, severe depression, bipolar disorder, and including substance abuse addiction, by focusing on how mental, emotional, and social factors affect a person's physical well-being. Jamie has had the opportunity to continue working with adults diagnosed with chronic and persistent mental illness in addition to substance use disorders at D’Amore Healthcare to assist patients in improving their insight, judgment, and symptom awareness to help prevent long-term hospitalization and transition them to a less structured environment.

Population Focus/About Me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with nearly 4 years of experience providing therapy in a community mental health setting. My experience in community mental health has allowed me to work with a variety of people ranging in age from young children through our older adult population, as well as with many types of different cultural and religious backgrounds. I am passionate about building a genuine, unconditional, and non-judgmental rapport with my clients. It is important to me to hold a safe space for people to let their guard down in efforts to start their healing journey through therapy. While in this journey with you, you are the one leading the way and I am there to walk the path with you as support.

Theoretical orientations I tend to rely on are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which encompasses the importance of our thoughts and how they influence our feelings and behaviors, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) which is helpful in learning skills for emotion regulation, communication, and mindfulness. However, once I was formally trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), I feel this was the last piece of the puzzle to help people to truly experience more inner peace and potential healing related to trauma history.

Here's to you, for starting your journey of healing.
