ndeNatasha DeMaio, Newport Beach Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I specialize in practical and time limited cognitive-behavioral treatment strategies for children, adolescents and adults. I utilize a solution focused, action-oriented approach. Let’s focus on finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems. The hardest step is asking for help and you already have the insight to realize you can better yourself or your family. I commend you for your bravery as you begin this journey. It is vital to have a therapist you connect with, so I look forward to meeting you to ensure we are a good fit. I’m available evenings and Saturdays.

I am certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. PCIT utilizes ‘in the moment’ coaching to assist families with children who have behavioral and emotional struggles. I offer in home sessions to implement the skills. I utilize Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help children and adults overcome traumatic events.

I offer life coaching to help in identifying, prioritizing, and achieving goals. “We cannot start over, but we can begin now and make a new ending.” -Zig Ziglar
