Shalina Kumar, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 112148

I believe that everyone has the potential to realize the life they imagined for themselves. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I provide a safe and trusting environment where you can explore and process the ambivalence that often hinders you from realizing your ideal self and relationships. I believe it is the therapist’s role to really listen and understand first who you are and what your goals are in therapy. I understand how difficult it is to share personal and private information to a therapist. I honor and respect your decision to do so in order to overcome your current obstacles. My career has focused on people from all backgrounds and ages. I work with blended families with children dealing with trauma and teens with behavioral problems; as well as, adults struggling with a wide-range of depression, anxiety, trauma and relational difficulties. I use an eclectic approach to therapy starting with the person-centered (a warm, supportive therapeutic environment with genuineness and empathy), so I can really get to know my clients and help them where they’re at. I also do utilize evidence-based therapeutic modalities to treat depression, anxiety and trauma in all ages and cultural backgrounds.
