Hello! Welcome to therapy, I would like the opportunity to provide you with a warm, relaxing, safe environment to process those difficult emotions, relationships and situations. With your investment in the therapy process and implementing the skills acquired in therapy, I believe that your hope for the future and your significant relationship can be renewed. My experiences with relationship and family systems counseling has been rewarding and exciting to watch families being restored, which the core of a family is the couple relationship.
My name is Carmela and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over three years experience. In addition to my therapy experience, I have worked with multi-culture, parents and families for over 27 years in a variety of employment situations including working in the social work field for 18 years. Associated with the Department of Mental Health Services, I have provided intensive therapy services for those with poor response to traditional therapy. Depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship challenges, parenting issues, domestic violence, child abuse, sexual abuse, anger management are some of the issues that I have processed with clients.
I utilize a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing as well as other appropriate modalities. I view each person as an individual; therefore, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
