Lighthouse Therapeutic Services

About me…

Hi there! My name is Debora Ribas-Santos. Ever since I was a child, I had a strong desire to help people. Throughout my professional and personal life, my interactions with others have encompassed that desire.

My background education includes: a Bachelors of Sociology from San Diego State University and my Masters of Social Work degree from University of Southern California. In addition to my degrees, I am a trilingual (Portuguese, Spanish and English) Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My private practice is currently located in Pasadena. I provide individual therapy and couples therapy as well as conduct culturally competent psychological immigration evaluations. To ensure I provide my clients with the most up-to-date practices, I attend trainings, workshops and conferences.

I have experience working with people from all walks of life. I have worked with children, adults and family; across various settings: schools, hospitals and other social service agencies. I have considerable experience working with individuals with depression, anxiety, those who experience difficulties with life transitions and domestic violence. You can count on me to provide a nonjudgmental, warm, safe and welcoming therapeutic environment.

I am currently accepting new clients and would be honored to guide you on a path towards healing. Call to schedule a free 15-minute consultation.
