Luis Maimoni, LMFT
Luis is a bilingual (Spanish/English) therapist in private practice. He has extensive experience treating children with problems at school, at home, with friends, or in the community. They may avoid family and friends, get in fights, purposefully harm themselves, or have a hard time getting things done. He collaborates with these children and their families to find and treat the root cause.
Although there are many clinical aspects to his work, the most important things he provides are a listening mind, relentless curiosity, deep caring and respect, and a willingness to be his authentic self.
He is trained in several Evidence Based Practices, including Positive Parenting Program (Triple P), Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT).
As Board Secretary of The Guidance Center, he is able to directly support the effort to erase the stigma associated with mental heath, and advocate for clients
and providers. The Guidance Center provides mental health services to over 3,300 children and families each year in the communities of Long Beach, Compton, San Pedro, and Avalon.
Prior to working in mental health, Luis’s career focused on sales and marketing. For over 20 years, he led teams that created engagement with customers, clients, and communities through highly targeted content and platforms.
