Bianca Aarons, MA, MFT
Hello and welcome to my page. My name is Bianca Aarons, and I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist in the state of California, also known as a psychotherapist or a couples counselor. I work with Adults, Adolescents, and Couples in my practice. I use modalities such as Relational Therapy, Depth Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness together to create an integrative approach to treatment.
I have a master’s degree in Integrative Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies, and I have been practicing psychotherapy for the last 4 years. In our weekly 50 minute sessions, we will be examining everything in your life that isn't working for you. This includes your past wounds, such as a trauma that still affects you today, your present relationship issues, the things that you aren't happy about in your life, and how you would like your life to be in the near future.
What is the purpose of therapy, and how does it help us? It’s kind of like The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up, (By Marie Condo), but for your emotions. When we bring attention and awareness to our selves, our lives, and our relationships, we become aware of our habits and our defenses, and the purposes they have served us up until now. I intend to use the therapy as a relationship tool to help you identify how you are in the relationship with me, in relationships around you, and if you are able to be fully vulnerable or close to the people around you in the way that you would like to be.
Here are some emotional hardships that I am trained to work with:
The Effects of being Sexually abused, including betrayal, fear, depression, hopelessness, and PTSD.
Relational and Attachment issues, including having a hard time entering into and maintaining friendships and romantic relationships.
Existential feelings, do you overanalyze everything, including your own meaning and the point of your life? I understand this type of questioning and yearning for personal growth.
Self esteem, which includes being a perfectionist, judging yourself, putting the needs of others before your own, and letting people get away with treating you less than mutual in your relationships.
I like to schedule free 20 minute phone consultations with all potential clients to help us determine if we are a fit for each other. I look forward to speaking with you.
