About the Therapist

I am Irma E. Llanes and I would be honored to have the opportunity to work beside you in a forum that I believe to be rewarding and powerful. It is through my strong belief in people, that I can help you find your answers and help guide you to the paths you seek.


I bring to you over 20 years experience in promoting wellness and the work of healing.   I specialize in working with women, children, adolescents, couples and families.  I have extensive experience in a multitude of issues including depression, anxiety, grief, domestic violence, healing from abuse/emotional trauma, marriage/relationships, emotional difficulties related to pregnancy, the postpartum period, adjustment/life transitions, acculturation, parenting, behavioral problems, stress reduction and personal growth.  I also conduct mental health assessments for immigration cases.

While I have adopted an approach that is collaborative, I approach you, my client from a strength- based perspective. You are the expert in your life, and with my guidance and support, I trust that you can discover your path to a healthier, more satisfying life.

My academic accomplishments include an MA degree in Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in Child-Adolescent Psychology, from Lewis & Clark College, and a BA in Clinical Psychology with a minor in Child Development from San Jose State University.

I am bilingual (English & Spanish speaker) and bicultural.
