Therapist in Pasadena, California Ernesto Cruz, LMFT

Ernesto Cruz, LMFT

I was born and raised in Northeast LA. I traveled to the Midwest for my undergraduate education, before returning to the Valley to finish my graduate degree in Psychology. In my practice I work with adolescents, adults, couples and families. I provide services in English and Spanish. I serve a diverse clientele including members of minority communities like BIPOC and LGBTQ. I have worked with issues of acculturation and racial trauma. I also work with clients facing generalized anxiety. I have experience helping survivors of sexual and physical abuse. I also serve survivors of domestic violence, trauma, relational abuse, and emotional abuse. Additionally, I work with clients struggling with depression and mood disorders.

I started my journey in mental health first as a client and now as a therapist. I know first-hand how hard it can be to find the help you need. I believe in the healing power of relationships, I strive to connect with the aspects within a person that have been shamed, neglected, and rejected by the rest of the world. As an Existential-Humanistic therapist I seek to create an accepting, empathic, and authentic relationship that empowers you.
