About Gretchen Weisenburger Carrillo, MFT

Few therapists enjoy or even specialize in couples therapy.  Scarier still, poor quality couples therapy can actually worsen relationships in crisis.   Building relationships should be easier and couples in crisis should have quality, readily available support when crises hit.  This clinic was started with the goal of improving care for individuals and couples who specifically seek speciality care for their relationships.

A California Native, I spent  a decade living and working in Mexico City prior to returning to California with my Peruvian husband.  I hold degrees from UC Santa Barbara and the Universidad de las Americas and have worked at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles/ USC, the County of Orange Behavioral Health Division, the Child Guidance Center, the Orangewood Children’s Foundation, the Children and Families Commission of Orange County among others. I have trained in the Gottman method (levels 1 and 2), the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PaCT), as well as with the Couples Institute and Michele Weiner-Davis.  I am passionate about my work as a couple therapist.

My husband Ben and I have two active teens.
