Hello, My name is Juana (sounds like wanna), Are you feeling stressed out, anxious or have an irritable mood that leads to anger? Does it seem like you are stuck, lost or unmotivated? Are you struggling with healing from a traumatic event, even from childhood? Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. I know seeking help can be hard. You may have even been hesitating to seek help because of shame, embarrassment or perhaps cultural beliefs. Let’s work together! Allow me to help equip you with the necessary tools to face and overcome your challenges. Whether you’re struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, or anger, it is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) I have had the opportunity to assist people in their growth and transformation. It has been an honor to serve with the US Department of Veterans Affairs helping fellow Veterans work through their PTSD from combat and Military Sexual Trauma (MST). I have also worked at several non-profit agencies in the local community providing services for men and women experiencing anger issues, depression and anxiety related to domestic violence and childhood sexual trauma. In addition I have worked with adolescents and their families struggling with substance abuse. From all of these experiences, I understand no two individuals are the same, so I use a variety of evidenced based approaches in my therapy practice. I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to identify and understand the root cause of your struggles and address them with long-lasting strategies, helping you get closer to the life you’ve always wanted.
I enjoy working with individuals, children (preferably ages 10 and up), couples and families concerned with mood and mental health issues. I specialize in anxiety, depression, anger and trauma. I am also certified as a Prepare-Enrich Facilitator, a proven approach, designed for Couples in all stages, to include Pre-marital/Seriously Dating improve relationship satisfaction. As a proud Army Veteran, the spirit of “never leave a fallen comrade” is still with me, so all are welcome here. This can be your safe space, without fear or judgement. You are not alone in this. So if you are ready to Learn, Love, and Live again, don’t hesitate, contact me so we can get started on your journey to Live Intentionally Today!
