About Dr. Cecilia Lopez

Dr. Cecilia Lopez has been practicing therapy for almost nine years in Northern California. She has a doctorate and master’s degree in counseling psychology and is a licensed marriage and family therapist (#104025, CA). She gained the bulk of her experience at various non-profits in the the South San Francisco Bay Area as a clinician, and she now runs her own online/telehealth private practice (working with California residents). Dr. L also provides educational content on mental health and wellness through her podcast (Mindful Living with Dr. Cecilia Lopez) and various social media platforms (@drcecilialopez). She takes pride in helping others work through mental, emotional, behavioral and stress related challenges by supporting the development of skills and insight that promotes a life of well-being and flow. She is keen on working with stress, anger and anxiety related challenges and especially enjoys helping others work through fears that may hinder them from creating their ideal life. She playfully refers to herself as a “Fear Coach”.

Dr. Cecilia Lopez utilizes CBT, DBT, solution focused and person centered therapy, as well as expressive arts, mindfulness and meditation techniques to help her clients restructure how they think and respond to emotions and how they engage life. She also enjoys utilizing her clients’ unique cultural background throughout the therapy process (including their spiritual practices). She not only enjoys working with others in a therapy setting, but also enjoys training, speaking, and hosting meet-ups online and in the community in order to bring others together to promote wellness. Her passion for helping others and her energetic (and sometimes playful) personality provides an ideal blend for promoting the improvement and awareness of mental health. Lastly, she brings this energy and passion to clinical supervision, where she supervises and supports therapists as they collect hours toward licensure.
