Kristen Rawlings, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
My name is Kristen Rawlings and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Rancho Cucamonga, California. I have a strong desire to help individuals, families, and couples live the life they want to live by coming to terms with the past, living in the present, and being excited and ready for the future. I love getting to know my clients and I especially enjoy seeing each person become the person they want to be. We all have a unique self, sometimes it is a matter of uncovering that self before we can reach our full potential.
My training and experience and passion has been to work with various “issues” such as depression, anxiety, trauma/abuse and neglect, family-relational problems, parent-child problems, oppositional defiance/legal/probationary problems and substance abuse. I work with all ages, individuals, families, and couples. Although I am so excited to work with everyone, I do have a special passion and love for working with teenagers, as well as teenagers and their parents in repairing parent-child relationships. Through research and experience, I have learned that in repairing the parent-child relationship, a teenager’s problems and at risk behaviors decrease significantly and enable healing to themselves as well as to their family. Although I am not specifically practicing these models at this time, I am trained and certified in multi-dimensional family therapy and in equine assisted psycho-therapy through the EAGALA model. I consider myself to be person-centered therapist however I do not use just one approach to therapy as each person is unique and require different skills and tools in order heal, accept, and move forward in their lives.
Over the years of my training and experience, I have truly come to believe that each and every one us is unique and different but also incredibly special if we allow ourselves to be. We were born with and acquired various strengths but also, we each have our own unique needs that we seek to fulfill. I have made it a point in my career to uncover those unmet needs and collaborate ways to meet those needs in a positive, productive, adaptive, and fulfilling way. Together, we will uncover and identify your qualities, the good, the bad, your weakness’, your strengths, the ugly and the beautiful, the pain and the happiness, and we will create a genuine and cohesive person in order to create a more fulfilling and authentic life.
I am excited and look forward to working with you!
