Amaranda Sakamoto, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clincial Social Worker, a 2015 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Social Work and received my training at: Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Ventura County Behavioral Health, Arrow Child and Family Ministries, Century Regional Detention Center (LA County Sheriff's Womens Jail), Pitchess Detention Center (LA County Sheriff's Mens Jail), La Ventana Treatment Center and the Motion Picture Television Fund Hospital. I have worked with clients ranging from ages five to ninety-one. Experience from working in these settings has given me extensive knowledge and a varied background in supporting and encouraging clients' resilience in healing from trauma, grief, loss and relational strain. 

My modality is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, a future-focused, goal-directed therapy to help clients formulate, implement, achieve and sustain desired behavioral change. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, paired with motivational interviewing with a client, to identify what they want to change behaviorally. Emphasizing exploring communicational styles, core values and consistent habits foundationally based in increased insight and growth in honesty, faith/hope, surrendering, soul searching, integrity, acceptance, humility, willingness, forgiveness, maintenance, purpose and service. 

I look forward to spending time in session with you honoring the process of applying time, grace and truth to your current circumstance.
