I am a Mental Health counselor licensed in Florida with over 12 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with couples with a wide range of concerns including relationship issues and parenting problems. Relationships are the core of our essence and at times can be challenging and overwhelming.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels.
My approach working with couples combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, midfulness, conflict resolution and communication skills building . I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs as couple. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier relationship with your partner and to take the first steps towards a positive change. If you and your partner are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you and your partner.
On a personal note, I enjoy working out , horse back riding, reading and spending time with family and friends. I, like anyone else, have overcome traumas and stressors in my life to find a more balanced and fulfilling life. I have also learned that personal growth is something that requires constant commitment, courage to look within ourselves, accept our own mistakes, and find and practice our strengths and abilities to continue striking for a better self.

En una nota personal, me gusta hacer ejercicio, montar a caballo, leer y pasar tiempo con familiares y amigos. Yo, como cualquier otra persona, he superado traumas y factores estresantes en mi vida para encontrar una vida más equilibrada y satisfactoria.

Working with Pilar has saved our marriage. Speaking with a counselor at first can be a bit awkward; however, Pilar was able to quickly help us feel comfortable and created a safe space so we could focus on working on our marriage.
Pilar listens attentively and was able to quickly hone into our issues. Not just the surface issues, but the deep, dark, scary ones that we didn't even think existed and were afraid to bring up that could have been an issue down the road. She's empathetic, honest, soft spoken and very knowledgable.
Another great aspect about Pilar is that she was able to apply an approach that would worked for us as a couple so it did not feel like our sessions were "one size fits all" as we've experienced with other counselors on Regain.
Pilar is truly amazing! My wife and I recommend her without hesitation.
Pilar is very attentive, caring and warm. She does not make anyone feel uncomfortable nor does she have any biases. She's very knowledgeable and is willing to listen to all your concerns. She has been the best counselor we've had on ReGain and we've experienced such growth in our marriage thanks to our sessions with her.
Pilar is very professional and helpful counselor she listens and tries to understand what we are saying, also she is open to do whatever makes us comfortable I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for help.
Pilar has helped in many ways. I’ve only had about three sessions so far but all three have been helpful. She is very respectful to all parties involve and understands each side of needs and wants. I have already recommended her to a co-worker. Thank you for all you do!
