    Welcome to Peace of Wisdom Therapy

    Therapy can give you the support you need to get through difficult times. Whether you have a mental health diagnosis or not, you are in the right place.

    Are you struggling with unwanted emotions, behaviors, and beliefs, causing you to feel unhappy, unfulfilled, anxious or on edge?

    Do you notice the presence of unhealed wounds from your past negatively impacting you in the present, keeping you from exceling to your full potential?

    Or maybe you’ve recently had a traumatic experience, a loss, a break-up, or you’re having problems in your relationship.

    Things often only get worse as you hesitate to take the next step toward getting unstuck from your past, putting an end to emotional distress, or getting help to repair relationships.

    You don’t have to get through this difficult time in your life alone.  Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is reach out for help, and this takes tremendous courage.

    It’s time to get the peace of mind and emotional freedom you’ve been trying so hard to achieve on your own.

    We cannot heal emotional distress through distancing ourselves from it.

    The truth is time does not heal all wounds. It’s human to want to avoid and just get rid of the pain. At the same time, the only way to release the pain for good is to give it your attention and work through it.

    This is the hardest part and trying to do this without the proper support will most likely leave you feeling defeated and at a loss for what to do next.

    Like many people struggling with emotional distress, you may not have the adequate support you need to face a certain problem in your life.

    Our therapist at Peace of Wisdom Therapy is here to create a space free of judgement and criticism, full of encouragement and reassurance, where you can get to the root of your suffering and work through challenging situations in your life.

    You will be seen, heard, and understood. With the help of our strength-based treatments customized according to your needs, we look forward to helping you cultivate

    • emotional peace
    • confidence
    • love for yourself
    • healthy relationships, and
    • a strong foundation for creating a better future

     

    Stay in peace, Not in pieces

    Conventional thinking about mental health says we are “hard wired” in our brain to act a certain way, and that there is “a switch” we can turn on and off or there are “gears” we need to shift one way or another to have emotional and mental stability.

    New research sheds a bright light and gives hope, indicating the human brain is more like a vast ocean of numerous mechanisms working in concert together like a flow that is fluid. Every day is new, and you are different than you were yesterday, one year ago, or from one cycle in time to the next.

    Ultimately, this means you have a chance to make different choices. You have a chance to see things with more clarity and take actions that get you on track in the direction you want to go and feel authentic as you move through different life circumstances.

    Change is possible and within your reach.

    Colleague Testimonials

    It was more than a pleasure to work with Paula. During that time, I realized that she would always look outside the box and do what is best for her clients and co-workers. She is extremely well organized and adjusts to challenging situations seamlessly. I Co-Facilitated the following groups with Paula while working together at Compton Mental Health Clinic- Healthy Relationships for Women and Coping with Anxiety and Depression for Men. I saw first-hand her clinical and communication skills at use.  She displayed empathy and assisted with the clients’ work on solutions. Observing her was as an invaluable experience and has made me serve my clients in a more positive way.  Paula knows her work exceptionally well and is able to assist with individual adults, families, couples, teens, and young children

    Dina Mc Dowell, Medical Case Worker

    Paula and I worked closely together as colleagues at the LA County Department of Mental Health from 2009-2011.  Together we created and ran a trauma group, which greatly benefitted the group’s participants.  Paula always created a safe space for her clients to express themselves and was effectively able to assist her clients in the healing process.  Paula is knowledgeable in many different therapeutic approaches and is skilled at discerning how to use this knowledge to help her clients meet their goals.  She has much empathy for others and uses her intuition well.  She is also a reliable and ethical professional whom I give the highest recommendation.

    Andrea Guido, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

    I have known and worked with Paula since 2015 at the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. Paula is a wonderful and insightful clinician. She is both professional and compassionate. Her experience coupled with her insight, integrity and ethics combined with her experience in crisis work as well as individual, and group therapy work, make her a first-rate therapist. I would highly recommend her to any mental health organization and most definitely as a personal therapist.

    Marylouise BarrosNiska, PhD., LMFT

    I worked with Paula at The Los Angeles County Compton Family Mental Health Clinic from 2012 to 2015. Paula was an individual therapist to many of my substance abuse counseling clients who were dually diagnosed. The transformative work my clients achieved through working with Paula in individual therapy was evident in the way they participated in my treatment groups, providing excellent input and encouragement to other clients in recovery from addiction and struggling with mental health issues. Paula is kind, attentive, patient, and a great listener; all qualities that go together to make her a phenomenal therapist I highly recommend.
