Associate Clinical Social Worker

I have over 10 years of experience working with children and adolescents. I have a background working with children, adolescents, and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and behavioral problems. My goal is to create a safe space for my clients to feel comfortable to process and express their feelings.

My therapeutic style is calm, understanding, and supportive. I am here to support my clients by providing active listening and space to process your problems.

I let my clients know that your session is your session so whatever you need to talk about this is your space. We will devise goals together by creating a treatment plan, so that we can work on those each session, but I think it’s important to focus on the current or new stressors that clients are experiencing as well. I enjoy working with children and Teens and will incorporate therapeutic games or Art to make therapy more fun! “The
meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” -Pablo Picasso

Amanda Khalil

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

AMFT138609

Hi, I am Amanda. I have recently received my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. I have had the privilege of working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. Most of my clinical experience has been working with those aiming to address their difficulties with anxiety, depression, and relationships. Throughout my work, I have loved focusing on developing self-identity, coping skills, and communication with individuals. As a first-generation American, I know there are unique challenges that come with that, which has led me to love working with others who experience cultural challenges. Therapeutically, I am very eclectic and draw skills from Cognitive Behavioral, Narrative, and Person-Centered therapies. I believe that therapy is a unique space where you can be yourself, be heard, and be understood. My aim is to create a space that allows you to do so. I am truly passionate about coming alongside you on your mental health journey.

Andrea Raquel Solis

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

AMFT 122046

Hello, I have been working in the field of mental health since 2019 while earning my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University. During this time, I have had the privilege of supporting adults and adolescents in various settings including in-patient treatment, an outpatient community mental health clinic, and school based counseling. I draw from an array of theoretical orientations based on my client’s unique needs including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Attachment Theory, Narrative Therapy, Systems Theory, Solution Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). My therapeutic style is strongly rooted in mindfulness based interventions. I have experienced mindfulness based interventions to be extremely helpful in reducing worry and rumination which so often accompany anxiety and depression. I have worked supporting individuals who are experiencing or have experienced: anxiety, depression, codependency, Intimate Partner Violence, substance use disorders, process addictions, trauma, grief and loss, housing insecurity, current or previously involvement with the justice system, current or previous involvement with the foster care system. My clinical experience has included working with culturally diverse populations from various ethnic backgrounds, religious backgrounds, gender expressions, and sexual orientations. I believe that a safe therapeutic environment is the most crucial element in opening up space to facilitate healing for people. I strive to create a therapeutic environment which is supportive, collaborative, and respects that each individual has a unique lived experience and inherent value.


Pain and stress are inextricable parts of our human existence. I strive to support clients in developing compassionate responses to their suffering. I firmly believe that all behavior and emotions are expressions of universal human needs trying to be met. Sometimes the ways we have gotten these needs met in the past have been useful or necessary; but they may no longer serve us. I want to help people become more attuned to what their behaviors, relationships, and emotions can tell them about the needs they have and explore ways they might get these fundamental human needs met in a fashion that will be most fulfilling, affirming, and positive for them.
