DR. KARLA ARRIARAN 

EdD, California Licensed Clinical Social Worker#63633

Are you successful on the surface, but anxious or unhappy underneath? Are fear and stress robbing your ability to enjoy life and be present?  We’ve all been there– overloaded, struggling to make decisions, wanting a work-life balance, feeling like an imposter, or having difficulty managing relationships. My clients are often overachievers who constantly add to their workload until they reach the point of total shutdown. I enjoy working with young adults, working professionals and working moms who are successful but need support to prevent burnout. Additionally, I am passionate about working with clients dealing with generational trauma as well as multigenerational family dynamics. 

In sessions, I am warm, compassionate, and conversational. Clients have described me as easy to talk to, non-judgmental and adding the right amount of levity when needed. Using a Cognitive-Behavioral style, with strengths-based and solution-focused techniques, we will work together to develop strategies for a more manageable and enjoyable life. My intention is that our sessions will help you feel heard, understood, and confident in moving toward your desired goals.  I look forward to the opportunity to work together!
