My Background and Approach

Dr. Amarillo has been treating youth, adults, couples, families, and geriatric clients. She believes that psychotherapy helps individuals understand and build their strength, to empower themselves to be authentic to who they are. There is not a one size fits all situation, since everyone’s journey in life is unique and different.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Dr. Amarillo also promotes the discussion of mental health wellness in the communities, especially communities of color to reduce the stigma of mental health. She notes “we do not have to suffer in silence, and it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms so we could help ourselves but also others. Coming to therapy is the hardest step, but it does get easier when acquiring the tool and working on the self. Dr. Amarillo encourages clients to interview their psychotherapist since a client has the right to choose whom they feel they would work best. This is part of providing individual autonomy. However, at times individuals might not know, feel comfortable that Dr. Amarillo wants you to be successful and will refer you to another that would best fit. She stresses the key component is the success of clients and doing what is in the best interests of the client.
