About me

I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor in New York. I have been providing psychotherapy for more than ten years. I have worked with clients with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, ADHD, and other mental health conditions.

I have an eclectic approach to therapy. However, there are some approaches that clients are consistently receptive to, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, DBT, modeling, motivation interviewing, etc., which I generally use. Although, I typically prefer to match the clients' needs to specific therapeutic approaches, thereby significantly increasing the effectiveness of treatment.

Every client needs respect, acceptance, and compassion treatment, which I always give. I do not believe in judgment, prejudice, discrimination, or labels in therapy, as these prevent treatment from being successful. I strive to empower my clients through insight and strategies to enrich their lives and become self-sufficient in managing their problems/conditions/situations.

I commend every client for seeking treatment as it shows the strength and determination to help and improves themselves. My skills and knowledge can assist clients as they take the first step toward their treatment.

Let's begin the healthy and healing process together.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Edili Maldonado. 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.

Edili has been really great so far. The more I open up, the more she has to offer me in terms of advice and insight into why I am feeling the way I do, or helping me figure that out.
