Professional statement

Damien Terronez is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Fresno, CA. Damien works with adults who face everyday challenges in managing their stress levels. They feel overwhelmed by the amount of things on their plate and the pressures placed on them to balance a busy life. This stress can lead to burnout, and ultimately anxiety or depression. Damien’s clients may feel isolated in their mental health challenges or disconnected from others, including loved ones. They seek help from a professional mental health clinician so they can find balance in their lives.

Damien’s approach to therapy stems from an evidence-based therapy modality called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In CBT, clients connect their thought patterns to their feelings, seeing how negative self-talk can lead to feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness. Clients also monitor their behaviors, changing unhealthy behaviors with the support of Damien, to instigate greater positive feelings. Damien works collaboratively with his clients, adjusting treatment based on their needs or their progress. Additionally, Damien utilizes Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment to help client's move through past traumatic experiences which affect their daily lives and Motivational Interviewing to assist clients with feelings of ambivalence.

Damien earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from California State University, Fresno. Damien aims to support his clients to improve their lives and to reduce the harmful impact of their everyday stressors.
