Welcome to Little Lulu Parenting
Dr. Denise Garcia, Psy.D., LMFT


 I am a psychotherapist who provides expertise for caregivers in the early stages of child-rearing, from prenatal to newborn to toddler-aged children.
I also provide psychotherapy for individuals experiencing the grief and loss that come with the loss of a loved one or the loss of a relationship.

Remote Therapy Services for California Residents Only

Individual Parent/Caregiver Therapy

My caregiver support therapy focuses on helping parents and caregivers (grandparents, aunts, and anyone that wants to be part of your village) navigate the complexities of being prepared for newborns and toddler-aged children. I provide a nurturing environment for you to address your concerns and develop skills and new learning through CBT, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and a client-centered approach. 

Grief and Loss Therapy

Losing a loved one is overwhelming and complex. Through grief and loss therapy, I offer a supportive approach to help you process your emotions and find ways to honor and remember your loved one.

Couples Therapy

In couples therapy sessions, my expertise lies in addressing challenges in preparation for your child. Maybe you are wondering what parenting style is best. Would like to work on childhood wounds together, to work on communication that is hindering growth regarding your toddler's behavior? I work with couples in therapy sessions to explore and treat family challenges with families with younger children.


Non-Therapeutic Remote Services- for ALL Locations

One on One Parent Coaching 

  • We meet via a video call to explore and discuss your needs and expectations.

  • I share my knowledge about child psychology and give you the steps to create more connections with your child.

  • I will give you step-by-step instructions on how to resolve the issues you describe.

  • Insight on the challenges that are coming up for you and your child.

  • You will have online access to ask me anything from the time we first meet until the end of your time with me. (A package must be purchased for this option.)


A one-time 2-hour session where you ask me any questions about anything you might think I can help you with, and I provide you with a wide array of tangible tools and the reasoning behind them. You can email me your questions, and we can dedicate the whole call to discuss them. This session is all about you, and your family (centered around your little one) and the needs you may have.

Group Training

I provide group training for parents and caregivers in schools and daycares, as well as stress reduction presentations for your office (team). I provide strategies and tools for parents to use at home with their children, using engaging presentations to help them improve their parenting skills and create a positive home environment.  

I can also tailor the presentation to the needs of your school, office, or company.

Examples of presentations are:
