***Not accepting new clients***   Hi! My name is Erika Garibay Malanowski and I am a bilingual (Spanish), bicultural licensed therapist in California. I completed my undergraduate studies at University of California, Davis and completed my master’s degree at California State University, Long Beach. I have 5 years of experience providing full time therapy services and 6 years of experience researching evidence based mental health practices. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and in Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) by the Interpersonal Psychotherapy Institute. I am also trained in other modalities including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive processing therapy (CPT) and motivational interviewing (MI). The majority of my work has been with populations of color and first generation people (for example, first born in the U.S, first to attend university, first to hold a professional job). Though I have a strong evidence based background, I also acknowledge that evidence based therapies come from westernized psychology, ideologies, and values-- which might not align with those of my client’s. For this reason, I think it is very important to engage my clients in discussing their intersectional identities and values in order to tailor treatment specific to their needs. I strongly believe that there is more to therapy that just processing the past. Therapy can also focus on setting goals and learning skills in the present to help you live the life you want AND deserve in the future. Are you ready to take action? I am here to walk beside you in this journey. Let’s do this!   *At this time I only offer evening appointments and occasionally Saturday mornings. Please contact me for availability. All of my services are via a HIPAA secure video platform.
