Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, 84364
My name is Jessica Sanchez and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and the founder of The Refinery. I am one of the few clinicians in the Coachella Valley to be intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and offer a comprehensive DBT program (see DBT tab). I utilize Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), and various other therapeutic approaches to help individuals, adolescents, couples, and families achieve their goals and create a life worth living. I understand that although you may be doing the best you can at this moment, you may need additional support to help you work through troubling issues and reach your goals. My goal as your therapist is to create a safe, accepting, and non-judgmental environment where you are empowered to turn your problems into solutions and create the most satisfying life possible.
