Heather Bustos, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Murrieta
Often times life's challenges signal the need for a helping hand. My goal is to facilitate a gentle therapeutic process where together, we may unearth and remove the blocks that have kept you from living the life you desire.
I enjoy working with clients within in the following domains: life transitions (especially related to becoming a mother and navigating the transition to motherhood), pregnancy loss, personal growth, spiritual development, grief and loss, fears, relational problems of all kinds, mindfulness, and parenting.
I find it very rewarding to support MFT practicum students/trainees and MFT Interns in the process of becoming clinicians. Some educational programs require the completion of a certain number of personal therapy sessions. I am happy to assist graduate students with this requirement. I also enjoy working with other therapists/clinicians.
