Isabella Jimenez (she/her)
Hi! I’m Izzy Jimenez (she/her). I am a provisionally licensed psychotherapist at Roamers Therapy under the supervision of Shaysa Villa MSW, LCSW.
Confronting difficult aspects of life such as grief, traumatic events, relationship issues, and mental health struggles can feel overwhelming and scary. Choosing to start therapy and confront the complex emotions that life throws at us is a choice that deserves praise. It is my goal as a therapist to create a compassionate and non-judgmental environment to explore these difficulties and help you feel empowered. I believe that therapy is meant to be a collaborative experience, with you being the expert of your own life, and me being there to provide you with validation and guidance.
My therapeutic style is integrative, meaning I respect the uniqueness of every client and strive to provide both intentional and specialized care, utilizing techniques from multiple therapeutic modalities. I work using concepts from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy. I additionally find immense value in exploring past experiences that shape current patterns and behaviors. In my experience, clients have benefitted from processing past experiences, while also working on finding solutions for present issues.
Honoring individuality and embracing diversity is of utmost importance to me. I have experience working with a variety of populations, including school-aged children, adolescents, and adults. My primary experience has been spent working with those struggling with anxiety and mood disorders, postpartum adjustment, grief, trauma, low self-esteem/body image, and relational issues. It is my priority to help people feel more confident in their ability to handle the ups and downs of life.
Things that bring me joy: podcasts, going to the movie theater, long walks, hot yoga, spending time with family and friends
