Hi, I am a bilingual English/ Spanish licensed clinical social worker in California with over 12 years of experience in the mental health field. I have the honor of working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, PTSD, anger and stress management, parenting issues, and couple relationship challenges. I strive to create a safe, non-judgemental and comfortable environment so we can work together to gain insight into the various contributions to your feelings and problems. I have experience counseling in my church and became. A relationship with the Lord can make the difference when managing pain and loss. I have witnessed beautiful transformation when integrating faith into treatment. Sometimes it is hard to access the inner guide we have due to outside influences, fear, doubt, or from being out of alignment. Asking for help is one of the hardest things you can do, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI)among others. I tailor the intervention to my clients strength-based. Meaning I view my clients as individuals with strengths and resiliency no matter what their circumstance may be, and my work and privilege is to help them use that to be empowered. We will work on strategies that allow you to address the root causes of your problems, improve communication skills, build empathy & respect, learn effective problem-solving & conflict resolution skills, and strengthen connections. Very soon you will discover yourself and about the changes you can make to propel yourself to move forward. As long as you are open to sharing as well as accepting what is shared with you, this process of exploring can be highly rewarding, and it will also set up for success down the road. I’m looking forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Lourdes Mayes. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
She really understand what she is dealing with!
Lourdes is, by far, the best therapist I have worked with.
I truly enjoy our sessions and I feel motivated to accomplish the goals and the work she gives me as homework. She's also understanding with my schedule and available time and we make progress according to that.
But what I value the most is how insightful she is, and her capacity of finding things about myself and my story I didn't even knew or realized about.
All of this together has helped me a lot in making so much progress in very short time. I'm very grateful of finding her and working with her every week.
I feel so heard and seen and I've made such positive changes in my mindset that will benefit me for the rest of my life
I appreciate Lourdes because she is honest with me and shares with me tough love while at the same time being loving. She offers solutions and understands me and what I go through. She allows me to go at my own pace yet encourages me to grow in certain areas like boundaries because she knows it will be better for me the sooner I do the work.
