Itzuri Hurtado LMFT, is a Bilingual Mental health therapist with more than 8 years of experience providing services in English and Spanish in California. Itzuri has clinical experience working with both youth and adults. Working with youth requires more creativity and talent and Itzuri is gifted for being able to connect emotionally with young ones.

Itzuri has a substantial background working with anxiety, complex trauma, depression, family issues, autism, challenging behaviors, divorce, and relational problems.

Our sessions are geared towards you applying the skills and techniques necessary to address your concerns, fears, or other symptoms appropriately. This includes how to affectively deal with anxiety and stress and to challenge behaviors such as anger or insecurity that interfere with your relationships and life goals.

All experiences in life shape who we are and give us a unique identity. The meaning of life is unique for each person and together we will discover your personal strengths and resources to overcome your current and long-term struggles in life. The goal is for you to experience positive and lasting results.

Message to clients

As a psychotherapist, I am passionate about impacting my client’s life with making positive changes. I like to help my clients reach what I called “living paradise”. A place that includes love, happiness, fun, life purpose, meaningful friendships, and financial stability. I believe that all humans have the superpower of choice and together we can choose to create more joy in your life. I am compassionate, knowledgeable, and honoring of my clients’ unique experiences. I work with individuals of all ages to help them identify strengths and needs that can help them reach their “living paradise”.

The propose of my work with clients is to resolve past and present challenges, to identify and eliminate what is not working, and to concentrate on utilizing new possibilities.


My passion is to support others in finding their inner strength and begin the healing process. I strongly believe that all life experiences shape who we are and give us a unique identity. The meaning of life is unique for each person and I focus on guiding clients to discover their full potential and overcome current and long-term struggles.
