"I've had the privilege of having Darla as my counselor for one-on-one appointments, group therapy, and couple's therapy. In all of them, her level of care for me exceeded my expectations. Darla helped me through hard times by carefully listening to my concerns, genuinely acknowledging them, and helping me to understand and overcome them. Only with Darla have I felt both heard and understood. Seeing how invested she is with me, it is not difficult for me to give her my complete trust and cooperation. My husband and I feel supported in our marriage and in the struggles we faced. Darla is very discerning and she knows what we needed to grow both as individuals and as a couple."

"I highly recommend Darla to anyone who struggles with depression, anxiety, grief, or relationship issues. She has helped me in each of these areas and greatly improved the quality of my life. Initially, I was nervous to start therapy, but she immediately helped me feel comfortable. Her personality is very kind and welcoming, and she does an excellent job listening and providing feedback. When I first started seeing Darla, I had just experienced a bad breakup. My heart was broken and I couldnʼt go a day without crying. But with Darla as my therapist, I have improved so much! I am an improved version of myself that is much happier. If you are looking for a therapist, I encourage you to give Darla a try. It will be one of the best decisions you ever make!"

"I have seen Darla as my primary therapist for a little over 13 years. She has helped me process childhood trauma, anxiety, depression and helped me get to the root of my addictive behaviors. I have 9 years of sobriety, and anxiety/depression no longer rule my life. I am forever grateful to Darla for her wisdom and compassionate and gentle approach. One thing that always amazes me is how she recalls specific details about my past that I sometimes forget or don't think that she would remember, but she does. And it never ceases to amaze me. I feel seen, heard, and supported. Thank you, Darla. I honestly couldn't have the life I have today without the work you have done with me."
A.T. Laguna Niguel, CA.
"I want to say how grateful I am for having had the opportunity to work with you these past years. First as a couple, my husband and I learned so much from your workshop. Then in individual therapy you taught me that I already have the solution inside myself, I just have to trust myself and I have the ability to rewrite my own stories and histories. What an exciting discovery, which of course is not always easy to utilize, but all the more powerful."

"I’ve been seeing Darla at Kaiser for some time. She has been very effective using EMDR to treat longstanding PTSD and night terrors. She introduced me to mindfulness meditation which helps me deal with anxiety and take control of my life. I always look forward to seeing her. She is caring and compassionate and has helped me over some very rough spots. Her therapy has changed my life. I think she’s wonderful.

“Before I came to counseling, I had given up on therapists and therapy in general. I was convinced that I would never find the right therapist for me. I never thought that I would find someone that understood me and my struggles. I was wrong. I found the right fit. It is so comforting to have someone that celebrates in my accomplishments and helps me through my struggles, the way that Darla does. Darla has been nothing but amazing in helping me through my struggle with addiction, bi-polar, trauma, and my journey to self-esteem. She has never made me feel as though there is something wrong with me, rather she has provided me with coping skills, encouragement, and endless support. I cannot recommend Darla enough, as the kindness starts from the moment you walk in the door and continues even after you leave.”
