Who Are We?

We are therapists committed to making a positive difference in the lives of the people we work with. With a Licensed Psychologist and a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist on staff, we offer a variety of specialties, availability, and rates to meet your needs. We are based in Riverside, California, but thanks to telehealth we offer virtual counseling throughout all of California. This means that whether you’re in San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, or anywhere in between, we can help!

What We Offer

We offer a variety of counseling and consultation services. Our counseling services can help individuals, couples, and families navigate all kinds of concerns such as life transitions, anxiety and stress, grief and loss, relationship tension, and personal self-growth. We tailor our counseling services to fit each person we meet with and we’re happy to work with individuals of all backgrounds including age, gender, religion, and culture. In addition, we recognize that there are certain individuals who may desire a more specialized approach; for this reason, we are happy to offer a specialized approach in the areas of anxiety and stress, perinatal mental health (mental health concerns during pregnancy and postpartum), Christian counseling, and therapy for therapists. Don’t worry if these specialized approaches don’t fit what you need, we can still help! As we said above, we can help with all kinds of concerns- click here to learn more!

Consultation services are also available for supervision and/or clinical concerns. If you are a therapist interested in beginning or deepening your work as a supervisor or mentor, or if you are a therapist interested in seeking a clinical consultation related to your own work with clients, Dr. Rios can help. Dr. Rios is a licensed psychologist and CAMFT Certified Supervisor, and has a deep passion for supporting other professionals as they grow in their role. She also has experience working in a variety of settings with a wide range of clients and presenting concerns, and strives to uphold the highest standards in her work regarding laws, ethics, and clinical practice.
