Weeda is an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist (AMFT) and holds a Master’s degree from California State University, Fullerton. She has experience in the areas of anxiety, depression, self-esteem, PTSD, trauma, spirituality, life transitions, and relational problems. She is passionate about helping individuals, families, and relationships of any kind to help people more wholly connect with themselves and others.
Weeda works from a systemic, collaborative, strengths-based therapeutic approach to help clients acknowledge the various unique contexts which impact their lives, connect with their strengths, and
learn new ways to live in wholeness. Her focus in therapy is to provide a welcoming space where every person, regardless of what brings them in for counseling, feels safe unpacking their "stuff" throughout the therapeutic process. Her empathy and warmth help to create a safe, nonjudgmental space where clients can process and heal. She utilizes various therapeutic approaches including person-centered, attachment-based, and mindfulness-based approaches.
Weeda purposefully incorporates multicultural concepts into each case, because she feels culture greatly influences how we interact with those around us and can help is to define our strengths. She truly believes that therapy is for everyone, but not every therapist is for every client: therefore she encourages open communication regarding the process of therapy so clients can best overcome their obstacles.
