Hello there, I’m Lus. Do you miss feeling like yourself? Does it feel like you are going around in circles with the same problems yet can’t seem to find a permanent solution? I guide adults from a person-centered approach to find solutions to their problems when experiencing difficult feelings such as those that come with depression and anxiety. I can help you work through major life transitions (newly married, becoming a parent, empty nester, starting school, grief, becoming ill, divorce, etc.) getting to the root of the problem and developing cognitive behavioral techniques that will get you back to stability. Obtaining therapy services can be intimidating but I can guarantee you that you are making the right decision. I possess bilingual abilities (Spanish), if it's your preference. You deserve your own space to heal and evolve. During our sessions, you will have a safe space where I will meet you with empathy and evidence-based practice. Let me help you.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session together we will start with identifying what your specific challenges are. I will also provide you with brief education to help you begin to make better sense of your symptoms and to help you cope.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I primarily utilize a Humanistic/Client-Centered approach. This approach is based on the assumption that individuals already possess the qualities needed to flourish. This approach encourages curiosity, intuition, creativity, humility, empathy and altruism. I also utilize a Psychodynamic approach, in this approach early experiences and unconscious drives on behavior are considered. Lastly, I utilize a cognitive-behavior approach. In this approach, there is a combination of both cognitive and behavioral approaches. It focuses on how thoughts and behaviors dictate a person’s feelings in a given situation.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I hold clinical social work (LCSW) licenses in the states of California, Texas and New Mexico. I love helping adults of all ages navigate through the different stages of life. I am open-minded, creative when problem-solving, confident in my ability to help others and humorous when appropriate. PLEASE NOTE: I provide services from Mountain Time (MT) Zone.
