Krista H Renella, MS, LMFT, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Valencia
Krista H Renella, MS, LMFT is not currently accepting new clients.
Are you ready for a change? I am here to provide you with a nurturing place to begin. I truly believe that lasting, lifelong change is created through a trusting relationship with another person. In our sessions together, you will feel understood and encouraged while we explore what lies beneath the initial symptoms that you are experiencing. We will work together to determine your urgent needs while scientifically proven therapeutic techniques and coping strategies will be incorporated into your treatment. It is up to you to determine the length of time for your sessions: 50 or 90 minute sessions are offered.
Over the years, I have developed an affinity for numerous individuals. To name a few, I have grown to enjoy witnessing families and couples sort out relationship issues and watch their love grow. I also have a fondness for teenagers & young adults who are experiencing the 'ups-n-downs' of the adolescent journey.
Coming from a multicultural background, myself, I've gained an understanding of the multi-stressors that intercultural - not to mention LGBTQ+, actors/artists, and immigrant children & their families - must overcome. For those who wish to maintain their privacy, or who are unable to travel, I offer home visits and phone counseling. Visit me @
