Arturo Mendiola, LMFT
Licensed Psychotherapist in San Pedro and Long Beach.
I am a bilingual, English/Spanish-speaking therapist that helps adults, adolescents, and families navigate the journey of life. I am trained in working with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and incorporate existential and person-centered approaches. I have extensive experience in helping people struggling with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, codependency, perfectionism, family conflicts, self-harming, trauma, and emotion regulation, amongst other issues. In my approach to therapy, I see myself as a guide that provides a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can show up as their authentic selves and begin to heal. I am committed to compassionately helping clients navigate their inner worlds, increase self awareness, and make long lasting changes in order to live more fulfilling lives.
