About Me

Hello! My name is Dr. Perez and I'm happy you've taken a step towards working with a therapist today. Therapy can be a very exciting experience. While you may have some reservations about the process, it can be very rewarding for you.

I come to BetterHelp as a licensed mental health counselor with over 15 years of clinical experience. I hold a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. My work with clients over the years has included focus on cases which have been quite diverse in nature. This experience has involved work that has ranged from inpatient clinical and prison settings, to private practice focused on LGBTQ clients. I enjoy working with couples and individuals focused on working through their current relationship issues and goals. I help clients identify relationship goals as they navigate through challenges such as communication differences, infidelity, infertility, divorce, mixed sexuality, and parenting issues.

Over the years, I have worked with individual, couples and families to address common relationship issues, including communication skills, goal setting, and how to maneuver through life’s many ups and downs. As a therapist, I enjoy working with clients and helping them be the best version of themselves. I do this by working with them as a team member in their life journey. I encourage my clients to be involved in their treatment, every step of the way. With that said, I value client feedback and greatly encourage client autonomy. You know yourself best and together, we will work to both identify and meet your treatment goals. My therapy approach draws from the cognitive, existential, feminist, humanistic, and expressive arts schools of thought. I offer live chat and phone or video sessions weekly, primarily between the hours of 9am and 7pm on select days of the week. I also offer asynchronous messaging on most week days. (Note: I am out of the office on the weekends and holidays.)

I look forward to working with you!
