ROSE LOBATO.jpg

ROSE LOBATO, AMFT

My name is Rose Lobato, AMFT. Working in the field of mental health is something I have been interested in for as long as I can remember. 

I began actively pursuing my passion about six years ago when I was invited to join the team of direct care staff at a non-profit organization called South Coast Children’s Society (SCCS). This full time position took place in a group home for dual-diagnoses adolescents. During my three years at SCCS I was promoted to house manager as well as named the Employee of the Year in 2013. The experience really brought to my attention how immensely rewarding the mental health field can truly be and I knew the next step for me was going to be graduate school. 

I completed my Master’s of Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy at California State University of Long Beach. During my coursework I spent a year as a trainee at a school-based site called Turning Point Center for Families. I worked primarily with middle and high school students who were referred to therapy with various concerns such as depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. 

Following graduation, I spent the first several months of my internship at a residential treatment center called Paradigm Malibu. I worked on several different treatment teams assisting high-risk adolescents who sought help for reasons ranging from substance abuse to eating disorders, from autism to bipolar disorder, as well as severe anxiety and depression. This valuable experience provided me with the opportunity to sharpen my skills working with families, facilitating groups, and utilizing creativity in order to effectively motivate and treat my clients. 

For the past year I have been working in a private practice setting, and it is here that I believe I have found my true calling. I absolutely love getting to know each and every one of my clients and being able to work collaboratively to best meet each person’s unique set of needs. I tend to operate from a strength-based approach and utilize techniques from both narrative and existential therapy. I find this to be especially effective when working with people who are motivated to overcome the symptoms of anxiety and depression. 

I am so excited and grateful to be working under the license of Helen Caldwell and I look forward to continuing to expand my knowledge, to build relationships, and to support people in their journeys toward growth and fulfillment. 

When I am not working as a therapist, some of my favorite ways to spend my time include going for long walks, journaling, decorating my home, spending time with my friends and family, and watching any television shows or movies that can bring me to laughter or to tears!

KATIE CHEADLE, AMFT

Katie was a student athlete at UC Berkeley before beginning a career in Human Resources. After spending time in the corporate world coaching and training executives, she realized her deep passion for helping others. She noticed that the same pressure, stress, and desire to win that was present in athletics was also very alive in the corporate landscape. She became dedicated to helping individuals and teams reach their highest potential through the integration and practice of mindful awareness and intention. This merge between mindfulness and performance led her to expand her knowledge and further her education in the field of psychology. She eventually earned her Masters degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy. Katie believes that the practice of mindfulness is integral to finding peace and fulfillment in an anxiety driven world. Katie works with individuals, adolescents, and couples in private practice, while also hosting workshops and teaching classes in the community.Katie’s approach is collaborative and solution focused, integrating the principles of Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
