Deanna Jimenez, LMFT

EMBRACE YOUR ESSENCE. LIVE IN PURPOSE.

About Me

As a guide, I believe it is my responsibility to provide a safe and contained space for a person to explore their feelings, thoughts and experiences without judgment. Feeling deeply connected and understanding yourself more wholly can be a powerful experience and very healing.


My style is interactive, warm, and direct.  I demystify the process of therapy by being a real person, not a “blank slate.”   My approach is collaborative, as we work together to address your concerns. Although I work eclectically, I am heavily influenced by the principles of mindfulness and your present experience. I focus less on reconstructing the past and more on changing what is not working in your life today.


Through personal experiences and professional training I continue to stay engaged around issues that impact people of color. My multi-cultural embodiment is a lens thru which I see the work and how I show up in the therapeutic space. I invite curiosity around each person's needs as it relates to being seen as a unique individual in this world. Diversity in the psychotherapy field is a passion of mine and I hope to support each of my clients in expressing their innate beauty with confidence.


My education in healing has been a winding journey of various modalities. My training includes:


Mediation: A collaborative approach towards conflict resolution where each party is able to listen and be heard in a safe environment and come to a mutually agreed upon plan;


Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP): an approach to communication, personal development and psychotherapy utilizing hypnosis and other pattern-breaking techniques;


Transpersonal Psychology: a full spectrum psychology, integrating a mind, body, spirit model. It blends East/West philosophy to the traditional Western Psychology methods.


Energy Work: as a Pranic Healer, I tune into subtle energies and utilize our body’s life force to support the healing process.
