Hi there! I applaud your courage in reaching out. I am a Licenced Marriage and Family Therapist with 25 years experience working with individuals, children, couples and families. I am a Stanford graduate with a Master's in Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies. I offer compassionate listening, presence and guidance for people in crisis, transition, or who are seeking healing, growth, clarity, and connection. All communications are confidential.

My experience covers a spectrum of clients and settings. I have provided therapy in day treatment facilities, schools, hospitals, and in private practice.

I take a Humanistic/person centered approach to therapy and strongly believe that you have the tools you need to heal and achieve your goals, and that I can help support you in this process. I focus on your strengths and am a supportive and empathetic listener. My therapy style is collaborative in which you and I work together to discover creative solutions to presenting problems. My work draws from the counseling theories and styles of Carl Rogers, Virginia Satir and Murray Bowen.

Seeking help takes courage. I honor this and will treat you with the respect and warmth you deserve. I am here to help you "live well and be happy"!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Camilla had been there for me for all of my ups and downs. She has guided me to putting myself first and allowing me space to speak my truth and find my voice.

Camilla is exactly what you need in a therapist. An active and engaged listener, a challenger and encourager, as well as a reinforcer and perception shifter. Every meeting is stimulating, eye-opening, and extremely insightful. I always look forward to our next engagement and I feel real growth after every session.

E.R.·Feb 28, 2022


I'm thankful to have a therapist that supports my rather unconventional views on life. She even refers to books, psychologists, or philosophers who have similar ideas as myself, which just goes to show how knowledgeable she is!

A.M.·Feb 16, 2022

Camilla is a loving and understanding counselor. She has guided me back to myself. As the world got more and more scary, she helped me to see that I can Feel safe inside me, before I ever Have to deal with the outside. I feel as though she’s the friend that reminds you how to care most for yourself before you can love those around you. At last, I’ve come to be able to love others as they are and accept that it is not my responsibility to change anyone. This has released so much exhaustion from my usual anxious self.

Unbelievable, I’m incredible lucky to have met Camilla.

K.E.·Nov 22, 2020


Camilla is absolutely incredible, professional, and empathetic in the perfect way that fits my needs emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. I have had many counselors over many years, and Camilla is the perfect fit for where I am in my life as of right now. I’ve already recommended her services to a colleague that’s how much I have gained from our sessions together. I would have made it through quarantine, but I don’t think that I would have grown and worked on myself in the best way for me if it wasn’t for sessions with Camilla.

K.A.·Oct 06, 2020


Camilla is just wonderful. She truly listens and cares. Her advice is always candid and honest, which is good for me. After years of never finding therapy very helpful, Camilla showed me the power of finding the right counselor.

M.A.·Oct 06, 2020


Camilla has been the guidance I needed to get through one of the hardest phases of my life. Her tough attitude, some super useful techniques and those periods when she genuinely listens have been a major guiding factor through the last several months. She genuinely cares and makes sure to check up after tough sessions/days. I could never thank her enough for all her help.

A.K.·Oct 04, 2020


Couldn’t have made the very big and scary life changes without her help! Great listener, gave me very honest and compassionate feedback along with helpful tools to help me help myself. She’s the best!

Mrs. Ford is one of the greatest things to happen to me! It’s only been about three-four weeks that we’ve been talking and I already feel muuuuuuuch better. She’s an angel sent from heaven, truly.

A.M.·Mar 30, 2020


Camila is a really good listener and is also highly intuitive. I've been going to therapy for years and recently moved across the country having to not only switch to a new therapist, but due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, I've also had to switch to online therapy. Working with Camila has been seamless, as she keys into my habits, tendencies and needs easily. I've really enjoyed our sessions and look forward to new discoveries.

T.Y.·Mar 27, 2020


Camilla helped me during the hardest time of my life, when I was so lost that I couldn't find my way back or what I was doing next. She guided me through my re-birth, helping me with my marriage, my social life and my self esteem. I cannot say enough. Thank you Camilla! Talking to her was really life changing. Like I told her I am now myself again but with an antivirus installed because I have the tools to guide me and a firewall to protect me against the challenges that will show up.

D.A.·Jan 12, 2020
