Hi. Welcome to my page. I am Oswaldo Castro but prefer to be called Oz. I am licensed mental health therapist with a plethora of experience. I first start my journey working in neurofeedback which has allowed me to work with a diverse population from children to seniors with issues with ADHD, autism, sleep disorder, anxiety disorders, depressed mood and a plethora of other neurodivergent individuals for about 7 years. My journey continues to working at a drug rehab facility where I worked with individuals with substance use disorder for about 5 years. My life then continues to work at a survivor's center where I worked with victims of domestic violence, violent crimes and grief for about 2 years. I also gained experience with the LGBTQIA+ population where I worked closely and ran groups with individuals of the trans experience. Moving forward, I have worked with suicidal children and adolescents that have been under a Baker Act which has given me experience in with family systems for about 4 years. If you like what you can read so far, reach out to me and schedule a session. Hope to hear from you so we can start working on those goals that you may have for yourself.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Depending on your experience on therapy will determine where I will start. I am very psychoeducational for the newbies to therapy which will allow them to understand their emotions but for individuals with experience can also receive a deeper experience.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I love what I do. I have been told that my therapy style is very personal and blunt, which works for some people. Overall, I have mental health experience over 10 years pf experience in different fields and modalities of treatment. The modalities that I provide are individual and family therapy. I have experience in CBT therapy, behavioral therapy, bibliotherapy, family system therapy, motivational interviewing, biofeedback, mulitcultural therapy, solution-focused therapy with a dash of psychodynamic.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I feel comfortable working with a plethora of individuals form a diverse background. I work with people with anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, LGBTQIA+ issues, domestic violence, grief, survivors of violent crimes, substance users, sleep disorder, marriage and family conflicts.
