Meet the Therapist!
Hello, my name is Sergio Felipe Hernandez and I am an Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have spent the last 3 years gaining experience with a wide range of clientele and different presenting issues that have helped me prepare to best serve and support you!

I have a strong interest in helping individuals who have noticed an obstacle (i.e., anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship issues) in their life that may be impeding them from living the life they want to live. My training has provided me with extensive experience working with those issues listed above, in addition to working with families and understanding how cultural/spiritual factors can help or cause us some difficulty reconciling certain aspects of our lives.

How Can I Help You?
My job is to help explore what goal will best serve you and where you would like to be in life. Once we have created a goal together, I will make sure to tailor the therapeutic interventions to best suit your goal and your way of learning. I utilize elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Systems Therapies, and Motivational Interviewing, among others, to help you learn tools and skills to apply in your day to day life.

While I may have gone to school to learn all those fancy interventions listed above, I will not hold myself as all-knowing in the therapy room. I believe in combining what I have learned and experienced with your knowledge and strengths to work together to help you get closer to your goals. I am also fluent in Spanish and am happy to provide services in Spanish.

My Philosophy on Mental Health:
I know how difficult and intimidating considering and coming to therapy can be. As your therapist, I will make sure to provide a comfortable and trusting space for you to open up and hold onto those concerns for you. I will always meet you where you are in terms of being ready for change/growth, and only challenge you when you are ready to be challenged to make that jump.

More About Me…
I am a first generation Hispanic college graduate, so I can understand what it’s like going through life in uncharted territory! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my significant other. I love visiting new restaurants, traveling, and trying out new dinner recipes (and dirtying one too many dishes in the process).

Fun Fact!
My Spotify playlist is very eclectic. It will have you going from Vicente Fernandez, to Creedence Clearwater Revival, then Bad Bunny in just 3 taps of the “next” button.

Scheduling Information:
Sergio provides both in person and virtual sessions. He is approved to accept Tricare, TriWest, Kaiser, Cigna and Aetna insurances.

We look forward to working with you…
