Micaela specializes in working with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as well as other mental health issues. She can help you navigate relationship issues, including domestic violence, life transitions, and trauma, so you can build the life you deserve.
Micaela uses cognitive behavioral therapy, strength-based, and person-centered therapy strategies. She is a TF-CBT certified clinician with extensive experience in trauma therapy. Micaela enjoys working with diverse populations and, as an immigrant, herself is well-versed in the difficulties of adjusting to a new country. She offers services in English and Spanish.
