Rebecca Kahn, LMFT, PMH-C
Welcome, I’m Rebecca! Born and raised in the dry desert of Arizona, I attended the University of Arizona and graduated with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Spanish. In 2006, I relocated to the sunny beach in Southern California, graduated from Pepperdine in 2010 with a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and spent nearly a decade working in community mental health settings, including the juvenile justice system.
Following several pregnancy losses, including the stillbirth of my son, I changed my clinical focus and became certified in Perinatal Mental Health. Working with women’s health issues is my jam! My approach is collaborative, warm, and non-judgmental. And because my practice is Telehealth, clients find themselves more comfortable (hello, leggings and a cup of coffee!).
Cheyenne Roberts, LCSW
Hello there! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), who is passionate about giving back and serving others. My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for clients where they feel reassured that their voices are heard. I am committed to helping my clients feel empowered on their journey towards self-fulfillment.
For most of my professional career, I worked in Hospital Social Work, providing support to clients and family members affected by chronic and sudden illnesses and injuries. Since transitioning to individual therapy, I focus on Inner Child Work and helping clients heal from past childhood trauma.
I am no stranger to the fact that sometimes it’s tough navigating life transitions and day to day life stresses. As the saying goes, “Sometimes Life Just Happens.” And as a therapist, I put my best effort forth to offer support and encouragement to clients at any life stage.
Parry Samadi, LMFT
Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed? Maybe you feel that no one can understand what you’re going through? Do people constantly want to give you their two cents or give you unsolicited advice? Coming to therapy won’t be a quick fix to everything, but it can be a place where you will get the time to discuss anything you want. I believe it is important for women and those identifying as women to have a space to feel comfortable and have the freedom to express yourself. I approach my work with kindness, humor, and a dedication to helping each of my clients create lasting positive effects for their lives.
I will do my best to get to know you and work with you step by step to develop healthier coping skills and a healthy lifestyle. I am passionate in helping people dig deeper and conquer any emotional barriers they may have. Furthermore, I enjoy providing a safe space for women and women-identifying individuals, helping them reach their goals. It is and will always be a privilege each time a client allows me to be part of their self-growth journey.
Nina Araneta, LCSW
Hi! I know that some problems are just too difficult for us to handle by ourselves. We are often faced with obstacles, stressors, or traumas which contribute to our symptoms. I understand the mixed emotions that come with seeking help. I believe in the process of therapy and will work to serve you using therapeutic modalities and techniques that are unique to your specific need. If you feel ready to start your journey of healing and reach your goals, I am here to help.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of California. I have wide range experience in working with anxiety, depression, stress, and grief. I practice from a client-center approach in which I provide a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental therapeutic environment.

Danielle Kaiser, LPCC
Hi there, I’m Danielle and I so look forward to working with you. I was raised in the wide-open spaces of South Dakota and moved to California to attend college where I studied Child and Family Development. I went on to graduate from Lesley University in Boston, MA with a master’s degree in Holistic Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Over the years I have worked as a yoga teacher for kids and adults, a behavioral therapist, in community mental health, and in foster care and adoptions in Los Angeles.
My work incorporates over 15 years of experience working with children, teens, and adults. Having recently become a mother of two, through all the joys and challenges, I am even more passionate about supporting mothers on their journey. My approach is holistic, and I believe in the importance of the mind-body connection and finding ways for you to support your whole self. I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to meet your goals and find growth.
Stephanie Reyes, LCSW
I understand that sometimes life can be challenging and can hinder personal growth, happiness, relationships, quality of life, professional success, and parenting among other things. You feel like you are spinning your wheels but not going anywhere. You feel exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, sad and or irritated. You want to create meaningful change, but you aren’t sure where to start. There is no magical solution, and change takes work. However, YOU have the ability to make it happen. I believe in empowering and supporting clients to help them get from where they are to where they want to be. Using a strength-based approach, WE will focus on getting YOU on the path to healing and promote well-being.
I have experience working with older adults, adults, teens, military and their families, and caregivers in the treatment of mental health and life transition issues, trauma, marital issues, deployment, military separation, reunification, divorce, pregnancy, work issues, parenting and end of life issues (grief/placement). As a military spouse I have learned to overcome challenges of my own due to relocation, career change, separation, reunification, deployment, parenting just to name a few. I look forward to helping you make molehills out of mountains!

Kimberly Alford Stout, AMFT
I am a solution-focused therapist, your helper in navigating toward your goals while concentrating on what is working in your life with the strengths you already possess. I enjoy working with new moms, moms navigating the balance between kids/work/their partner, those with postpartum depression, and teens. I feel passionately about working with women who have experienced trauma and financial and emotional abuse, divorce and co-parenting, as well as with couples who are trying to connect in their marriage or even end their marriage. I help women, couples, and families create the life they want. I also specialize in ADD and ADHD.
I am also a postpartum doula. As a twin, who had twins that were in the NICU, I became a doula to be a source of support to other families who are navigating the complex life of new parenthood. My formal training and life experience allow me to offer support in the most challenging times.
I have a BA in Sociology from San Francisco State University, and a Clinical Master’s degree in Marriage, Family, Child, Counseling from Touro University Worldwide with a strong emphasis in family therapy.
