Hi, my name is Carl Del Bono and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Professional Clinical Counseling from California Baptist University. I completed my internship at a non-profit in Palm Desert, CA where I was able to work with individuals and couples who struggled with depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, anger management, alcohol and drug addiction, trauma, sex addiction, suicidality, LGBTQ+, and veterans. I am also a certified Domestic Violence Counselor.
addI strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for my clients to feel appreciated, safe, and heard. I will walk beside you through this journey, encourage you through the difficult times, and cheer with you during the triumphant times.
I understand that coming to therapy can be extremely difficult and is a huge first step, and I am so proud of you for making that decision! I am here to help you find out where you want to be and to be by your side as you take the necessary steps to get to there.
