Jamie Leavitt

Jamie Leavitt,
Client Ambassador

As your client ambassador to The Relationship Place, my goal is to ensure you have the best therapy experience possible. My role is to match you with the right therapist, address client and therapist concerns, and provide general office administration. I want to enable you to achieve your relationship goals, whatever those may be. I am an empathetic listener and truly do want to hear your story and any feedback you may have.

I am a warm, non-judgmental and genuine therapist. My goal is for you to feel like you’re talking with a trusted confidant. I want you to feel comfortable, supported, and safe so we can work to make your relationship better. Regardless of what you tell me, it won’t surprise or scare me or cause me to judge you.

Faride Herran

Licensed 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.

Vanessa Casanova

Associate Social Worker
Individual and Couples Relationship Therapist

I strive to create a supportive and nonjudgmental environment to give you the space to share whatever problems you are facing. I know opening up to someone new regarding your issues is not always the easiest thing to do.

I love to use humor whenever I can because sometimes life can get heavy, and I believe humor can be a strength and add to one’s resilience. I also aim to bring honesty and openness to my practice to help you grow and figure out what works and what doesn’t. I recognize people process their emotions and experiences differently so my goal is to always make you feel understood and supported.

Joni Marquez

Associate Social Worker
Individual and Couples Relationship Therapist

I am a firm believer that therapy is an essential and integral part of being human and by speaking about life’s challenges and traumas, it can help to uncover the reasons for suffering.

As a therapist, I am aware of the stigma that can come with the mental health field and I know how hard it can be to get the help one needs.  I have feared judgment and possible ramification from getting help (being active duty military) and I am aware of the pressures and of the shame that seems to surround it as well.  I am a firm believer that therapy is an essential and integral part of being human and by speaking about life’s challenges and traumas, it can help to uncover the reasons for suffering.  I promise to offer encouragement and an unbiased ear.  Seeking help never seems easy, but I can guarantee that it will be worth it.  The first step is always the hardest.

I offer a transparent and no-nonsense style to therapy, while still being able to provide compassion, sympathy, and empathy.  I will help you navigate through life, no matter the reason or season that brings you to The Relationship Place.  If there is a will then there is a way, and I will make sure that the way is for you to find peace, acceptance, and happiness in any situation.
