Professional statement

Narda Torrealba-Derouin is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Los Angeles, CA who works with adult individuals and couples. She works with clients to navigate such challenges as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and trauma related recovery. She also has extensive training working with families dealing with conflict management and issues related to separation and divorce.

Narda's counseling style is collaborative, integrating attachment-based and family-systems therapies with solution-focused approaches. She'll spend time looking at how early relationships with parents and other important attachment figures may have impacted her clients’ current relationships, while also helping them understand how to change behaviors to resolve immediate issues and concerns.

Additionally, Narda is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, a trauma treatment that helps process distressing memories and restore the brain's natural healing abilities. When working with couples, Narda utilizes her training as both an EFT (Emotionally-Focused Therapy) couples therapist and Pre-marital Prepare/Enrich Certified Facilitator.

Warm, compassionate, and engaging, Narda enjoys helping her clients progress on their journey of self-understanding and acceptance. She looks forward to meeting you, either at her office in Sherman Oaks, or remotely for clients across the states of California and Nevada.


Message to clients

My belief is that people are genuinely good and resourceful, and therapy is a place to honor and develop those strengths. Our time together is a safe space where you're encouraged to hit the "pause" button on your life, in order to reflect upon and examine ongoing patterns and thought processes more deeply. Through thoughtful questioning and exploration, we will work together to identify the origins and meanings of the issues that have led you to seek therapy. As we gain a greater understanding, we also find ways to access the tools, strengths, and resources needed to promote wellness in your life.

I encourage you to reach out to learn more, share your story, and determine if we are a good fit. I look forward to meeting you.
