Karem Ballestas, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in West Hartford
I am a licensed bi-lingual professional counselor. I offer individual, couple, and family therapy. I have experience in sexual addictions, which is my area of specialty and focus of my private practice.
Additionally, I have experience working with individuals who have a substance abuse history, those who have experienced trauma, and can assist clients with difficulties in identifying and managing emotions. I use cognitive behavioral and reality based therapy but I have experience using other theoretical orientations.
My office is located in West Hartford and I offer evening as well as weekend hours. I hope to hear from you soon!
