Hello. My name is Kristin Cantella. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience helping couples reconnect and rediscover the love and passion that they once shared. I wholeheartedly believe in the power and benefits of therapy. I am continually in awe of the ability we all have to look inside of ourselves and bring about change in circumstances that previously felt unmanageable.
Some of the areas that I help couples with include:
- Effective Communication
- Coping after a breach in Trust
- Intimacy Issues
- Working through Past Traumas that Impact the Relationship
- Understanding One Another's Love Languages
- Premarital Counseling
- Parenting Issues
- Coping with Stress that Impacts the Relationship
- Addiction Issues impacting the relationship
- Co-parenting during and after a divorce
- Helping Individuals through the Divorce Process
I am a graduate of Phillips Graduate Institute where I received my Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I utilize techniques and modalities that have been proven to be most effective in helping couples to heal and achieve the relationship they desire.
I am a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist with a straight forward, compassionate style. I provide an objective approach in helping you discover the answers you search for. Together, we will focus on you, your history, and how it relates to the current challenges you face. Through the process of self-awareness, we will discover ways that you can make different choices to lead to a happier more fulflling life.
Other populations served include individuals, adolescents, children over 7 and families. I have extensive experience in working with depression, anxiety, addiction, co-dependency and grief and loss issues.
I am a member of the California Marriage and Family Therapy Association and the San Gabriel Marriage and Family Therapy Association.
