My Approach to Helping
My name is Isbell Oliva-Garcia and I am a Licensed Mental Health Clinician. I am fluent in English and Spanish languages. I received both my master's degrees from Nova SE University in mental health counseling and developmental disabilities. I am also a Ph.D. candidate. I have been in the field of mental health for 10 years helping adults with mental health issues and disorders to include depression, anxiety, and issues during difficult life transitions. For example, I counsel individuals through grief due to a loss, clients experiencing divorce, separations, breakups, empty nests, and loss of jobs and/or change of careers.
Transitions can be difficult and when we get stuck, I can help with psychological strategies and techniques using Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Solution Focused Therapies.
As a mental health clinician, everyone’s mental health is important and vital at every stage of one’s life. Our emotional, psychological and social well-being all affect how we act, think and feel. These aspects also help us on how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices for ourselves. Mental Health counseling is vital when our emotional, psychological or social well-being goes off track and starts affecting one’s daily functioning, one’s relationships personally or work-related, and or our social wellbeing.
In situations related to life changes and transitions, one can fall into states of worry and anxiety about the future, which can lead to sadness, anxiety, and possible depression due to the potential changes or loss which can come with difficult transitions of life. These changes in one’s life are at times difficult to manage alone. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I can help guide and coach you through these difficult times and help you see more possibilities and abilities that each person has within. For life to go well and stable the mind must be nourished to assure mental wellness and my work to help others in this field is my life’s passion.
My treatment approaches include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Behavior Change Therapies
Solution Based Therapy
I look forward to working with you and showing you how to nourish your mind so your brain can flourish through the waters of change.
