About Briana Gonzalez, LCSW

*ACCEPTING NEW ADULT CLIENTS, TELEHEALTH-ONLY. Clients can be located anywhere in California*
As a therapist, I am passionate about emotional health, and strive to assist my clients in becoming empowered to be who they want to be in life by learning to become emotionally healthy. My approach will depend on your needs and personal goals. Additionally, I fully believe that personal empowerment comes along with understanding your hurts needs. I strive to listen, learn, validate in order to help identify your desired needs to heal and transform into who you want to be in life.

Sometimes, therapy can be a challenge because we deal with real emotions and thoughts that we deeply feel and experience everyday. Uncovering those emotions is not an easy process. But as your therapist, I commit to being a part of that process with you and empowering you to acknowledge those emotions, allow yourself to feel those emotions, and come up with healthy solutions on how to address those emotions.

Emotional healing is healthy, and the fact that you are taking steps towards your emotional health is a testimony to the strength and resilience you already have. I look forward to being a part of this journey with you.

I am especially passionate about:

*Working with adult survivors of childhood trauma and helping survivors become trauma-informed
*Working with Black women who have carried with them racial trauma and burdens placed by the constructs of white supremacy
*Working with people of the Christian faith after dealing with hurt and isolation that occurred within the Church; and
*Working with Multiethnic/mixed adults who have racial trauma, as well as challenges in racial/ethnic identity

However, these passions are not exclusive, and all are welcome to see if I am an appropriate fit for their needs. Other issues I work well with include depression, anxiety, life transitions, women’s issues, self esteem/body issues, and difficulties with boundaries.
