Faride Herran

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Individual and Couples Relationship Therapist

My strong clinical skills can empower you to make long-lasting changes in your life. I’m able to be fully present and to listen deeply to you. I can “read between the lines” and understand the underlying issues of the problems that you share with me.

Faride was inspired to become a therapist at the young age of 16. She struggled in her early relationship years, and it wasn’t until she sought therapy herself that she was able to develop healthy relationships.

Faride has lived in Mexico and is fluent in Spanish. With over 10 years of counseling experience, she has had success with clients from various different backgrounds and cultures.

Faride is a perceptive and skilled therapist who is thrilled to help her clients create healthier relationships.

My mission as a therapist is to offer a safe environment to embrace your life and relationships and to overcome the challenges that you face along the way.

I will help you harness your strengths as you find solutions to your relationship struggles and enhance your overall well-being.

My mission is to help people be where they want to be. Through problem solving and empathy, I want to help someone see that journey and make that journey.

My mission is to help people be where they want to be. Through problem solving and empathy, I want to help someone see that journey and make that journey.

I think of therapy as a device to help someone determine what is wrong in their life right now, and then use that tool to help develop the path for the change they want to see. I am merely the guide.

I am accepting of all people. I aim to help my clients regulate their emotions so that they can live more fulfilling lives.

I excel at helping clients find ways to cope with the stress in their lives in a healthy way, and to improve their relationships with others. I also help clients build skills to accept and handle change, which is inevitable in our lives.

My mission as a therapist is to make you feel comfortable above anything else. I understand how difficult it is to be vulnerable and to share yourself in a way that you most likely aren’t able to do with anyone else
