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 and I'm here to guide and support you through life’s most complex and difficult matters. I'm a fluent Spanish Speaking and proud Latina and I'm aware that culture plays an important part in my clients lives and in their mental health. I truly care about my clients' well-being and 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 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 by exploring current nutrition, sleep routine, and exercise patterns. 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 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.
