Francisco Almagro

(MD, (Cuba), Psychiatric, Specialist, (Cuba), MHC, (EUA))

About Me

I have been practicing counseling for more than 30 years, first as psychiatric specialist in Cuba. After (12 years) in the USA as LMHC.
My therapeutic style is eclectic. I use various techniques that fit with the case and the current problem. I often practice cognitive behavioral, narrative, conflict resolution and client-center techniques. To treat families and couples I usually proceed with the systemic-constructivist model. For individual cases and couples and families I establish the necessary rapport. In a few sessions, customers often make great progress. Empathy, unconditional acceptance and humor are important issues in my work.
Having studied and worked counseling in various cultural environments allows me to better understand the dynamics of customers.

Dr. Francisco Almagro es sumamente profesional y atento. Nos ayudo a entendernos mejor y siempre con un buen sentido del humor. Tiene mucha experiencia que fue muy esencial para nosotros y las conversaciones que queríamos tener como pareja. Estamos muy agradecidos por su tiempo y por todos sus consejos y apoyo. Lo recomendaría a todos en mi familia por su gran profesionalismo!
