Carolyna Mercado Chaparro- LMHC
I believe it takes courage to accept and address one's mental health needs. It is for this matter that I provide the necessary guidance and support for individuals to develop coping skills and tools that will help address the problems impacting their lives in a non-judgmental environment.
I’m bilingual in Spanish-English and I have been working in the mental health field for the past 6 years. In this journey, I have enjoyed working with a wide range of individuals that struggle with anxiety, depression, stress management, life transitions, crisis intervention, substance abuse, trauma, and multicultural issues. I incorporate an eclectic approach to therapy using techniques from Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Strength-Based, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness, and Person-Centered therapy. This will create an individualized treatment plan with a holistic perspective.
I value diversity and I operate by principles such as empathy, inclusion, and compassion. I believe these principles are the foundation to establish a good rapport and therapeutic alliance to reach your therapy goals.
