Hola, I am Carmen! I am a bilingual Licensed Professional Counselor who is passionate about helping individuals of all ages navigate their mental health journey. I have experience working in outpatient settings, providing individual and group therapy to individuals of all ages struggling with mental health and substance use disorders.
My goal is to create a welcoming, safe, non-judgmental space where we can work together to explore challenges, develop coping strategies, and foster personal growth. I provide treatments to help with anxiety, adjustment issues, depression, trauma, interpersonal struggles, stress, and life transitions. My holistic and eclectic therapeutic style allows me to draw from a variety of theories to integrate therapeutic approaches and techniques based on the individual’s unique needs and preferences.
As a counselor, I am empathetic, person-centered, strength-based, and trauma-informed. I utilize evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Flash Technique, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness, and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) among others. In addition, I am an accredited Level-4 Triple P Positive Parenting provider.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, friends and our three rumbustious dogs. I love DIY projects around the house and use my CRICUT often, love to binge watch my favorite shows on slow days, take care of all my plants, love Fall and everything spice, and love spending time with nature in all its glory no matter the season.
I look forward to meeting you soon and partnering with you in your healing journey! 🙂
