Cibele Sousa

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #114383

My eclectic and collaborative approach is one that envisions empowering, strengthening, and encouraging clients to find their own path of self-contentment and personal growth.  With kindness, compassion, and mindfulness, I have the ability to create a safe and nurturing environment where clients feel heard and change is possible.


I am experienced in working with families, couples, individuals, children, and teens, that are undergoing a life crisis, experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault, or substance abuse.  I have an eclectic style that combines psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, CBT, solution focused, family systems, mindfulness based stress reduction, Reichian, Inner Alignment, and non-violent communication approaches. I am trained in TRE, Resiliency Tool Kit, and Neuro-affective Touch.  I am bilingual, and can do therapy in both English and Portugese.
