About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) with extensive experience working individually with clients to address issues and promote their personal well-being and success. I believe every individual is unique and my approach is tailored to and reflects the specific need of the client. I have dedicated myself to assisting individuals navigate through the various issues encountered in their personal life experience, while improving their quality of life.

The human experience and the needs of every individual are specific to the person, and I believe that there is not a "one-size-fits all" approach and/or solution that will assist everyone. Every session is always dedicated to the current, here & now, physical and mental state of the client and is always in direction of the underlying personal need. Individuals have an intrinsic unlimited potential to know and understand themselves in a manner that is both beneficial to them and that allows them to address whatever it is their unique life experience puts in their way.

Together, we can deal with and/or navigate, every and any difficulty that you may encounter in life, as no issue is too big or too small for an individual to overcome. Thank you for taking the time to read this description, I look forward to our time and work together during session.

Kind regards,


Diego Gumucio

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Diego Gumucio. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Diego is a non judgmental compassionate listener who makes me feel safe to share things I’ve never told anyone. He asks excellent questions that elicit a lot of inner reflection and empowerment. He is much better than my last therapist who had a PHD but seemed to lack real curiosity in her questions. She was looking for answers that confirmed her biases and when she wasn’t making progress she projected that onto me. Thank god I am old enough and know myself well enough to not be screwed up by that kind of poor therapy. I am so glad I found Diego. I am rapidly acknowledging buried traumas and old thinking habits and replacing with new more helpful inner belief systems. Diego has a unique gift of making you feel seen, heard and your experience validated. He is a unicorn.

Diego is one of the most helpful therapists in the platform. He listens, is supportive and goes straight to what needs to be taken care of. I really appreciated that we were able to have our sessions in my native language, Spanish. Looking forward to our next session

Diego is the first therapist that I have felt truly engaged with. I’ve felt very comfortable in sharing my concerns and his rapport with me had been outstanding.

I was having a look at the better help app and noticed that I could write a review and I will attempt so to do.

Let see where my thought will go in the next few minutes:

Working with Diego has been enlightening and rather refreshing experience. It’s been just a few weeks and it has been rewarding this far. He seems to always have the right answers and he listens keenly. That aside though, he chooses the very best questions. I must also add that he has the ability to follow the issues presented be they: relationship issues, stress, anxiety, depression or emotional support. The way he phrases his questions causes you to have a new perspective. Certainly Diego knows how to in each session build self self esteem. His style is quite refreshing for modern day sessions especially given the advent of meeting online.

I’m confident that he goes the extra mile to ensure that you leave each session with a new outlook and youre put in the drivers seat to handle your personal issues and make critical life decision. You’d leave his sessions feeling restored and feeling better than you would have felt at the beginning of each session. “This therapist is truly gifted.”

At the end of my first session I was eager for a follow up. I could hardly wait to meet with him again to continue where we would have left off. Sure enough , it felt and a continuation form the previous session and I could tell that he made superb notes of the issues presented. It was clear to me that he had a plan of action from the very initial conversation. This in my view speaks volumes.

I can’t help but to say: Diego nails each session and it shows that he is passionate about his work. “He knows his stuff. “
