I am an LPC Associate committed to helping children, adolescents, and adults navigate life transitions, emotional and behavioral challenges.
Associate Professional Clinical Counselor in Fort Worth, TX
Supervised by Melinda Porter, MA, LPC-S, CST; Maribel Corona M.Ed., LPC-S, RPT-S
I utilized Culturally sensitive therapy to understand my client's background, race, spirituality, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and belief system and how this influence our therapeutic relationship. I work hard on being culturally humility gaining and maintaining cultural competence.
I utilized Humanistic therapy to focus on a person's individual nature and individuality rather than people's part. I see my clients as whole people, especially their positive characteristics and growth potential.
I utilized Play Therapy as an effective child-centered approach with children younger than 3. Play therapy is used primarily for children because they may be unable to process their emotions or articulate problems to parents or other adults.
I helped clients facing a maladaptive response to a psychosocial stressor or life transition with coping skills to understand the stressor and practical tools to decrease symptoms.
I helped clients facing panic attacks, feeling restless, excessive preoccupation, overthinking, sleeping issues, and difficulty concentrating with coping skills to decrease anxiety symptoms.
I helped clients facing depressive moods, sleeping issues, low motivation, SI, low energy, sadness, and loneliness with coping skills to decrease depressive symptoms.
