My Approach to Helping
My name is Muriell and for over nine years, I’ve provided individual, couples, groups, and family counseling services. I’ve worked in psycho-social rehabilitation centers, private practice and in school settings with children, adolescents and with military families overseas.
Throughout the years I’ve been helping clients address a wide range of problems such as substance abuse, relationship struggles, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, and many other life afflicting problems.
I practice from an empathetic and non-judgmental perspective. I avoid focusing on diagnosis or labels. I believe every client is unique and everyone has an innate ability to cope with life challenges. My job as your counselor is to help you uncover those unique abilities. In my sessions, you can expect to be provided with an environment of compassion and support which I believe are the foundations for a healthy therapeutic alliance and to foster change.
I’m fluent in English and Spanish, and currently working on my Italian. I was born in Nicaragua (beautiful country to visit if you get a chance) and I lived for many years in Miami and in Europe. Yes, I like to float around the planet :)
The things that give me the most pleasure and satisfaction in life are helping people, traveling, a wise book, a good laugh, hiking, painting, and a good cup of coffee. And, I love photography!
Feel free to contact me for a free 15 min consultation and see if we are a good fit for each other. :)
