Approach to Counseling

Emilio is committed to excellence in all aspects of counseling and psychotherapy. He believes that individuals are healthy when they have the right tools and mindset to deal with life’s circumstances and stressors. People learned certain behaviors that were useful at some point in their lives and that are now getting in the way of their fulfillment. Emilio helps individuals  identify these behaviors and replace them with new behaviors that improve the quality of their lives.  He  believes that relationships are healthy and strong when partners understand, appreciate, and celebrate each other. He works to discover underlying themes contributing to their concerns and then is able to tailor therapy to each individual person or couple for greater  success. He believes that each person brings a unique combination of strengths to the therapy process.

Emilio is fully bilingual in English and in Spanish.
