About Amy Bacani LMFT //


I became a therapist because I love working with people and helping them to accomplish their goals.  I earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from San Diego State University in 1995.  I then went back to SDSU in to complete a master's degree in counseling, with a specialization in marriage, family, and child counseling in 1999.  I have worked in schools, hospitals, a rape crisis center, and community counseling clinics.  I became licensed as a Marriage & Family Therapist in 2003 (License #LMFT39634) and transitioned into working in a group practice.  I then started my own practice in Temecula in 2004.  I see a variety of clients dealing with such issues as depression, anxiety, life transitions (e.g., divorce), grief, and child behavior problems.  I am particularly interested in working with young children in play therapy, eating disorders (including compulsive overeating), and relationship issues.
