My name is Florence Soares-Dabalos and I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT) serving Northern California. I have a small private practice and am only accepting a few clients at this time both in person and online.  I love working with a diverse group of clients and approach my clients with cultural humility.  I understand people are influenced by many factors in their lives and therefore, I find it important to treat the whole person.  That is why I use the R.E.S.P.E.C.T.F.U.L. Model (D'Andrews & Daniels).  I also offer contracted (freelance) Clinical Supervision to BBS registered counseling associates who cannot receive supervision at their place of employment as well as providing mental health trainings to various organizations.  Whether you need counseling, clinical supervision or would like a training, I am here to support you!  Please call me at 916-633-1373 and I'll help you lift the heaviness from life's oppressive influences so you can feel like yourself again.

In this video from 2009, Florence Soares-Dabalos, LMFT, discusses the myths and misconceptions of counseling and encourages people to reach out for help.
