Hola, thank you for visiting the site, I’m Juriana Hernandez, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and founder of Amor Therapy. I am based in Santa Clarita, California. I'm a fluent Spanish Speaking and proud first generation Latina and daughter of Mexican immigrant parents. I'm aware that culture plays an important role in my clients lives and in their mental health and I work collaboratively with you to help you reach your goals.
I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a B.A in Sociology and M.A. in Psychology, emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Phillips Graduate Institute. I obtained my training in non-profit community mental health agencies working with individuals dealing with an array of mental health challenges to include: depression, anxiety, grief and loss, panic disorders, trauma, relationship/family issues, and life transitions.
I have provided a number of specialized therapeutic services to individuals dealing with challenging life experiences and my philosophy in therapy lies in integrating: mind, body, and spirit. Mind: I collaborate with you and identify unhelpful thought patterns that lead to undesired emotions and behaviors by utilizing a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach. Body: I work on helping you pay attention to your body's needs and sensations by helping you identify where your body holds stress and tension. Spirit: I incorporate the role of spirituality in overall healing and beliefs about the existence of something greater than us.
I'm compassionate, warm, strength-based approach in therapy. I'm a certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist from the Academy of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and an expert in the area of recovery of Narcissistic Abuse. I also enjoy a good cafecito and believe that being in nature recharges your soul and keeps you connected to Source.
