"Growth is painful.  

Change is painful.  

But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don't belong." 

-Author Unknown 

Welcome to my practice!

It hurts.  It consumes you.  It doesn't allow you to live the life that you want to live.  I get it.  Depression and anxiety can take over and it feels like we are just existing.  It feels like it will last forever.  That things will never change.  


It is my desire to help to change that with you.  Therapy is less about curing and more about healing the pain and suffering that you are carrying on a daily basis so that you can thrive, and not just live.   When we heal we are invited to bear witness to our emotional pain so that we can move through it and live a life of integrity that we can be proud of.


It may get uncomfortable.

We may meet resistance.

But this is where we will see the growth and fulfillment that you have been yearning for.  

 

As your therapist, it would be a privilege for me to walk this journey with you and/or your loved ones, holding the relationship, supporting and guiding you along the way. I want to be the last therapist that you will ever need. 


Come along and let's create joy in the story that you are actually living and working towards.  

Hello, I'm Enedina A Robles 

As a therapist licensed to practice in California, I specialize in working with the following populations: 
~Perinatal Mental Health (Perinatal Mental Health Certification from PSI)

~Supporting parents during all stages of parenthood 

~Survivors of loss (including loss in pregnancy) 

~Survivors of trauma (Certified Clinical Trauma Professional)

~Young adults experiencing life transitions 


My goal is to help you to learn and understand your emotions.  In doing so, we learn how the reactions to your emotions fulfill you or hold you from living the life that you desire, and how to bring your emotions to focus to work with them and not against them.  Essentially, I want to help you to not feel "stuck" again.  


I use a variety of treatment approaches with my clients.  No one treatment modality fits all.  To better serve the needs of my clients, I continuously invest in training and certifications, and have given specific focus to the women/couples with depression/anxiety in the perinatal period, young children, trauma, and parenting.  I use an Eclectic approach to treatment in which I draw upon various aspects of Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trama-Focused Therapy Relational Psychotherapy, training in EMDR, and psychodynamic methods to create a custom-made treatment plan for you.   Therapy is at your pace, and I will walk with you through the process.  


I work with English and Spanish-speaking children, adolescents, and adults of all ages, in a safe and supportive environment.
