  • Maxine Soriano, LMFT

    Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #144712

    Location: Online, San Ramon, CA

    Pronouns: she/her/hers

    Hello! My name is Maxine Soriano. I am Filipina American and my pronouns are she/her/hers. Both of my parents immigrated here in the 80s from the Philippines – my maternal side Bicolano/Ilocano and my paternal side Visayan. I grew up in Los Angeles and have lived in the Bay Area for over 10 years. Outside of being a therapist, you can find me reading a book, crocheting, or somewhere out on the water. 

    I believe that seeking therapy is seeking change. And change can feel scary, but it can also be a chance to shake away our dysfunctional patterns and deepest fears.

    Have you found yourself weighed down by limiting beliefs, shame or trauma? Maybe you feel stuck in self sabotage, negative relationship cycles, or not feeling quite “good enough”. Perhaps you are ready to break free. This is where new and beautiful transformation can occur. This is where you can build radical self love.

    As a therapist, I am deeply dedicated to creating a space where my clients can feel supported, lovingly challenged, and safe. I strive to take an approach that is collaborative, trauma-informed, culturally accountable, and strength-based. 

    I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and I hold a Bachelors in Urban Studies and Planning with an emphasis on economic and housing justice and a Masters in Counseling Psychology with a certification in Trauma Intervention. I am deeply driven by my values in social justice and community – seeking liberation from oppressive systems through healing. And I believe that healing done at the individual level can lead to a radical and transformative effect on society as a whole.  

    My previous work has been with children, adults and families struggling with depression, anxiety, complex trauma, substance use, mood disorders, and psychotic disorders. I have experience across various systems such as county jails, psychiatric hospitals and education.
