“The beginning is the most important part of the work.” – Plato –
Recognizing that the thought of getting started can often be overwhelming, my initial approach is creating an empathetic space for us to begin to explore your decision to start treatment.
My work over the last 14 years has included individuals (ages 8 – 84), couples, families and groups. I have been fortunate to be able to provide insight and vehicles to change to personal struggles and family conflict. Honoring that every client is different, I recognize the importance of integrating various interventions that take in to account both inner strength and fragility of spirit.
Though my foundation is rooted in Psychodynamic & Attachment Theories, I incorporate several modalities (CBT, Solution Focused, Mindfulness, Positivity) based on the client’s unique circumstances and history.
With my steadfast belief in in the mind’s resilience and potential, I invite clients to welcome their path to change.

I am passionate and devoted to empowering others and creating positive awareness within the mind, body and spirit. As a therapist I help clients find inspiration and motivation in a life of healing and hope and helping create a life worth living.
In this space you will experience a judgement free zone, where you can be your true and authentic self.
The goal is to create self awareness that will allow you to become the best version of you. As self- awareness is developed, you will be able to become empowered and learn new skills and behaviors that will be beneficial to you and overall better living and your well- being.
I work with children, teenagers, adolescence, adults, individuals and groups. I utilize a strength- based approach in essence to focus on health and well- being and to aid recovery and empowerment. I also use a Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic approach to help focus on challenging and changing unhelpful behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies to help in solving current problems.
Psychotherapy allows for one to gain empowerment and control over the body, mind and soul and begin the journey of finding hope and healing.
“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” – Norman Vincent Peal
Hello! My name is Cryssol Marquez and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California (LMFT) and I have been working in a psychotherapy field since 2013. I have experience working in community mental health and in private practice with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting, teen concerns, life transitions, and a wide range of challenges, including grief/loss, trauma, sexual and physical abuse and crisis as well as adjustment issues.
I tend to draw from the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused approach when in a therapeutic relationship with my clients. This means that I make consistent efforts to meet each client “where they are in their journey” and to serve as a support to each individual who is progressing through their unique process of self-discovery and realization. I also use such modalities as Reality and Choice Therapy. The approach I strongly believe that helps the therapeutic relationship is understanding this is a collaborative effort by addressing challenges together, understanding that the therapeutic relationship is free from judgment and criticism. Most importantly, to reach the desired outcome set during our initial sessions.
I believe in creating a safe space where difficult and uncomfortable conversations are welcomed. Acknowledging and working toward resolving issues and collaborating on a treatment plan that is customized to your personal needs and experiences. It takes courage and strength to reach out for help as this is a vulnerable place for most individuals. I appreciate and feel privileged to be a part of your journey of self-awareness, change and for a better future that you desire.
I look forward to working with you!
