Karla Rodriguez, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Whittier
Do you feel like current or past situations have thrown your personal or family life off balance? Has the stress of personal, family, or parenting issues become overwhelming? When dealing with personal and family issues, I believe compassion, experience, and individual attention lead to positive outcomes and growth. My passion for working with individuals and families has been molded by over ten years of experience in an array of community outreach settings serving both children and adults. Consejería para individuos, niños y familias en Español. www.karlamft.com
Is your child having a difficult time after experiencing a life-altering event? I specialize in working with children who have experienced trauma. I utilize Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) in treating sexual abuse, physical abuse, PTSD, depression, anxiety and removal from birth parents/caregivers. www.karlamft.com
I am passionate about incorporating Play Therapy in treating children. Children use play to express difficult feelings and experiences. A successful therapy session is one where the child is allowed to use creativity and have fun, even while addressing difficult topics. Play is a critical component of positive childhood growth and development. www.karlamft.com
