Rebecca Gutierrez, Psy.D.

I have worked in the mental health field for over 10 years. The majority of my experience includes working with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families; I also have experience working individually with adults. I provide therapy services, as well as psychodiagnostic assessment. I am passionate about erasing the stigma around mental health care and increasing access to care within underserved communities. When working with individuals, I understand how vulnerable it can be to share difficult experiences. That is why I strive to create a space where clients feel safe and heard. I take an empathic, compassionate, and strengths-based approach to foster a collaborative relationship with clients as they work towards their goals. My background includes treating the following areas:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Grief, Loss, Suicide Loss
  • Parenting and Co-Parenting

  • Trauma
  • Chronic Pain & Illness
