About Me:

Hi! I'm Justine Short, MS, LMFT. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. For over 10 years, I continue to have a passion for helping people in finding their inner strength in order to make positive and lasting life changes. I view my role as a therapist to walk alongside and guide others to reach their full potential. My desire is to help others become self-aware, feel confident, and reach for hope so that they can thrive in their everyday lives.

My Areas of Focus consist of:

- Anxiety

- Depression

- Trauma

- Bipolar

- Grief

- Emotion Regulation

- Interpersonal Relationships

- Life Transitions

My Approach:

I have a Mindfulness approach to therapy and an additional focus in DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and Outdoor Therapy. I am DBT & Outdoor Therapy trained and work closely in collaboration with each client to identify their needs and desires for therapy. I tend to be practical, non-judgmental, and compassionate in my approach to set goals with each client that results in personal growth. I am here to help those who struggle - no matter how big or small they believe their problem may be. It's time to start living the life you have imagined!
