Lorena Gonzalez


10 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hello, and thank you for considering me to be your therapist! I am a bilingual (English and Spanish) Licensed Clinical Mental Health and Addictions Therapist, as well as a clinical supervisor in NC and Licensed Professional Counselor in VA. I have over 9 years of experience as a licensed therapist, and over 18 years of experience in the mental health field, in various capacities. Therapy is genuinely a love of mine, and I am very invested in walking alongside clients on their journey. My therapeutic approach is person-centered with an existential and humanistic focus. I treat trauma, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, other mood disorders, and addictions in adolescents and adults. I believe that people can change and grow to their fullest potential when given a safe space to explore what is creating limiting beliefs in their lives and holding them back from seeing the magic in life.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

As a client, our first session will be centered around gathering information that will help me better understand what your struggles are, and which treatment approach is best suited to help you. The comprehensive clinical assessment tool used to gather information allows us to work together to develop a person-centered treatment plan that focuses on your strengths and improves upon the areas you are struggling with.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Compassion and empathy are my greatest strenghts! I know therapy is a process and the journey can be painful. I am not in a hurry and I walk alongside each person at their pace. I want every client to feel safe, seen, and heard every time!

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I have been using CBT to treat mental health and addiction struggles for almost a decade. CBT helps clients better understand how their thoughts, feelings and behaviors interact with each other to cause the symptoms they are experiencing. Examining all three in session usually helps teach clients how to better manage thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to decrease and control the symptoms they are experiencing.
