Dr. Cecilia Lopez

During the event, licensed marriage and family therapist Dr. Cecilia Lopez will teach participants how to spot toxic interactions and behaviors, including passivity, aggressiveness and passive aggressiveness. Dr. Lopez will also discuss ways to increase respectful assertiveness and set healthy boundaries. The event will include small group discussions on toxic relationships and breakthroughs.

Dr. Lopez has been practicing therapy for eight years in California’s South Bay Area, and is passionate about helping others take their life to the next level. She has a doctorate and master’s degree in counseling psychology and is a licensed marriage and family therapist. For those struggling with unhelpful thinking, uncomfortable emotions (such as fear, sadness, or anger), or difficulties achieving their dreams, working with Dr. Lopez allows opportunity to restructure thoughts, emotions and behaviors that can lead to mental and emotional well-being, balance, and the achievement of goals.

Dr. Lopez helps individuals restructure their habits and thinking with cognitive behavioral therapy and schema therapy. If trauma or memories of negative experiences contribute to pain, blocks or any unhelpful patterns, Dr. Lopez provides process and healing work through modalities such as expressive art therapy, person centered therapy and mindfulness (among other practices).
