Professional statement

Robert Aguilar is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Santa Clarita, CA. Robert strives to help clients feel more engaged and connected with their daily lives. Often, his clients seek therapy because they feel an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. They want to make major changes to their lives but aren’t sure how to or are afraid to take the leap. They also suffer from a sense of worthlessness, which can lead to anxiety or depression. This can also manifest into physical complaints like stomachaches, headaches, or insomnia.



Robert uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help his clients better understand the root causes of their emotions. He teaches clients how to analyze their thought patterns and find the cognitive distortions that lead to their distressing emotions or low self-worth. By better understanding what’s going on in one’s thoughts, clients can instigate helpful change to their routines, relationships, and lives. Robert also teaches clients about mindfulness practices that can help with self-awareness, relaxation, and grounding. He is a strengths-based, psychodynamic therapist who believes that every client has unique traits that can be leveraged in their mental health journey.



Robert’s style is empathetic, warm, and personable. He has personal experience with feelings of depression, lack of motivation, relationship conflicts, parent-child relationships, and more, which he brings into his sessions as a way to relate to his clients. He is passionate about providing culturally competent care to clients of all backgrounds, identities, sexualities, and situations.
