Profile Picture of Lytara Garcia, LCSW

Lytara Garcia, LCSW

Since 2016, I’ve provided therapy to children, adolescents, and older adults in non-profit organizational settings. As of 2018, I’ve worked strictly with older adults who are/were battling long term trauma, drug and alcohol addictions, dealing with homelessness, history of psychiatric hospitalizations and/or incarcerations. I’ve also had experience with assessing, providing a conscious diagnosis, and developing a treatment plan to develop positive individual habits that cater to the client at hand. Through my experience, I’ve worked with clients that suffer from unhealed trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, Bi- Polar and Schizophrenia. I feel that therapy was a calling more so than an interest. Starting from young adult years, I’ve always been seen as a trustworthy person. Strangers would meet me at random places and our casual conversation would end up with them sharing intimate stories of their trauma or current problems. Those experiences were very humbling and a privilege, and I felt it was a responsibility to become a healer/teacher.

I completed my AA credits in Social Work in 2008 at El Camino Community College, which led me to completing my BA in Social Work in 2010 at Cal State University of Los Angeles. I continued my studies at University of Southern California in 2014 (GO TROJANS!!) and in 2021 I earned my License in Clinical Social Work. I consider myself to be an eclectic practitioner, meaning I utilize various theories, interventions and skills. With your help, we will build a treatment plan to your needs and learning style by utilizing mindfulness, relaxation skills, effective communications, assertive communication, inquiry in journaling, and medication. We are a team: you are the captain, and I’ll be your cheerleader/consultant that has an unbiased and objective view of your reality. My ultimate goal is to support you while you/we find a healthy way to develop a better self.
