As a licensed psychologist, Dr. Mendoza treats patients experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. She provides individual psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults in both English and Spanish, approaching therapy from a cognitive -behavioral standpoint – helping patients understand themselves better.
Dr. Mendoza frequently explores reasons behind self-defeating patterns, difficulties in relationships, anxiety, troublesome moods, and concerns about work motivation and creativity. She then helps her patients learn new strategies to overcome their difficulties. Contrary to popular belief, a psychologist will not give you advice or tell you what to do, rather she will help you find the best solution for your particular situation.
She also conducts psychological testing/evaluations for educational placement (gifted/intelligence, learning disabilities) and emotional/behavioral functioning.
Dr. Mendoza accepts payment for psychotherapy through most major insurance carriers.
