More about Palei Alfaro, LMFT

Palei Alfaro is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is working at Mindful Health Solutions’ Sacramento clinic as a Psychotherapist. She has a passion for anxiety and depressive disorders.  She feels that these areas are what the typical person encounter more often in life, and she has developed an expansive “coping skills toolbox” to address many of the symptoms associated with the diagnosis.  She is also interested in behavioral areas like ADHD and mood disorders as well.

As a therapist, she describes her personality as positive, outgoing, and overall bubbly. She is genuinely hopeful and happy in working towards each of her patient’s personal successes. With that, she aims to establish safety, security and stability. Meaning she wants each patient to feel safe, and to understand that she provides a non-judgmental and unbiased space for them to build trust and establish a meaningful therapeutic relationship, and to know that they can depend on consistent and thorough treatment. 

Palei Alfaro comes to Mindful Health Solutions because of the cutting edge technology in mental/behavioral health field here. Seeing that, she immediately knew this was the place for her.  For years, she had been following and studying advances in treatment for mental health disorders and have always felt that there should be more access to these treatments.  Treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy and esketamine treatments allow people to have alternatives to traditional medications, and find something that works for them.

Personal Interests

Outside of work she spends the majority of my time with her family, which includes her husband and 3 children. They enjoy vacations to the beach, day trips to San Francisco and family game nights at home. Her passion is her children and ensuring their success for the future especially with extracurricular activities. This includes being a baseball mom to all 3, and being there to get them to practices and all their games.  When not working, you can find her somewhere on a baseball field!

Education & Experience

Palei first attended the University of California-Merced from 2010-2012, and got a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She then went to California State University-East Bay for her Master’s degree in Counseling. From there she has the title of a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

She worked as a Mental Health Clinician for several years, which involved working with induvial and group therapy in a facility setting. These settings ranged from working with children and adolescents with special needs, to then later working with the Justice Community Integrative division in order to have mental healthcare in justice related programs. She now joins Mindful Health Solutions as a Psychotherapist.
