At Centro Castillo for Personal and Family Wellbeing, our clinicians strongly believe that the reasons you seek assistance is only part of you and your life. Together we will discover what motivates you and use this insight to increase self-awareness in how you feel, think and behave. With this knowledge, the ultimate goal is optimal decision making and feeling better about your life, thus leading to a more fulfilling future.
As a group practice we have over 19 years combined experience working with adolescents and adults as individuals, couples, or a family. Our areas of clinical specialty are: Trauma, sexual assult and abuse, human sexuality, depression, anxiety, family work, adoption and fertility issues. Group work and educational workshops are available.
Being bilingual and bicultural, we readily incorporate a multicultural perspective with cognitive-behavioral and family systems theory. Sessions can be held in English or Spanish. We are enthusiastic and interactive communicators. Together we bring a certain energy and personal touch to the treatment process, going against the typical therapist stereotype.
