My Approach to Helping

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or feeling stuck in life? My name is Luisa and I specialize in helping couples and individuals work through these challenges and find their way towards a more fulfilling life. My bi-cultural upbringing shaped my unique perspective and gave me a deep understanding of how cultural and identity issues impact an individual’s mental health. I’ve helped clients from all walks of life overcome these obstacles and create the life they want.

I combine in-depth therapy with practical, solution-oriented counseling. Together, we’ll develop a customized approach that fits your unique needs, personality, and goals. Along the way, I’ll provide guidance, support, and encouragement to help you achieve your desired outcome.

If you’re ready to take the first step towards a more fulfilling life, let's start by scheduling an initial consultation. During this call, we'll talk about what kind of help you're looking for and how I work. If it seems like a good fit, we'll set our first appointment. I look forward to hearing from you.
