Parkford Counseling Associates

My private practice has expanded to include a second office with skilled therapy associates working under my supervision in either of our two locations on Mission Street, Santa Barbara. These registered associates are working in private practice as they finish up their hours towards licensure, and come highly recommended.   They have similar training and specialties as myself, along with a consistent therapeutic approach. These associates provide a sliding scale for therapy fees. You may call our general office phone number (805) 687-1674, or reach out to any of them directly.

I bring a straightforward style and a warm and collaborative approach to my work with individuals, couples and families. My goal is to help you build increased awareness and to develop tools to create a greater sense of connection and joy in your life, relationships and work. I draw from my experience with person-centered, psychodynamic, family therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy models of treatment.  My work with couples is influenced by my certification training in the RLT model - Relational Life Therapy, with Terry Real.   This approach to couples counseling is focused on creating movement and change in the relational patterns the couple has become stuck in, and helping them learn new, more emotionally intimate connections with each other.


I began my career as an elementary school teacher.  I have also spent time in the field of technology, where I built teams and managed product lines before working as a counselor at several local Santa Barbara counseling agencies.

My approach as a clinician is warm, collaborative, and person-centered.  I have experience and training in trauma, relationship challenges, life transitions, anxiety, and depression. My background in mindfulness-based, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral models of treatment have given me an excellent foundation for treating a variety of issues with my clients. 


 I'm trained in EMDR (Level 1 &2 ) an evidence-based approach for the treatment of trauma, and have also completed my training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).  

I am also in the process of certification through RLT (Relational Life Therapy) with Terry Real, for my work with couples.


It takes a lot of courage to begin your therapy journey. If you’re ready to take this next step, please reach out to schedule a no-fee phone consultation to learn more about my approach and to see if we may be a good fit.

My approach to therapy is creative, collaborative, and down to earth. I hold space for clients to feel safe and heard, while providing them with tools to create change in their lives. I approach therapy from a person-centered lens that works to promote self-efficacy, a stronger sense of identity, authenticity, and empowerment. 


I offer a special focus of working with teens and young adults. I completed my training at CALM and the Santa Barbara School District, where I gained fluency in working with adolescents who have experienced complex trauma. After years of working with this age group, I’ve developed an affinity for supporting individuals as they transition from adolescence to adulthood. 

My clinical experience includes working with depression, anxiety, non-suicidal self-injury, family conflict, peer relationships, self-esteem, body image issues, PTSD, developmental issues, identity exploration, multiculturalism, and emerging adulthood.

       Jenean Cervantes

 I earned my Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University of Santa Barbara. I have a background in Life Coaching and have received training in mindfulness and self-compassion-based practices well as training in partnership communication.


As a therapist, I have a particular interest in relationships and couples therapy. I enjoy enjoy working with clients in understanding their inner child, the part this may play in their current relationships, and how we might attend to our attachment wounds. I provide an affirming, emotionally safe environment for clients to explore their inner work.

I like to  incorporate art therapy and somatic practices into my therapy sessions when needed.

I interact with my clients from a compassionate, trauma-informed, client-centered perspective.
