About me

Hello, my name is Esteban Angel Cabrera. I am a licensed mental health counselor with over two decades of experience in a plethora of services that includes academia and community health providers. As a son of a migrant seasonal farm working family, I have experienced many challenges in my life. I longed for a sense of normalcy and stability. I learned long ago that these don't come easy or are handed to you. It can be very difficult to manage everyday life challenges let alone any major traumatic events. I am encouraged by a quote I learned long ago "never let yesterday's disappointments overshadow tomorrow's dream be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might." I believe in making connection with others through validation, encouragement and guidance. We all have struggles in our lives and I believe that struggles are not failures but it means you are succeeding in "not giving up!" The counseling experience begins with developing a safe and consistent rapport that allows the counselor and client the space to grow into a healthy therapeutic alliance. Therapy can be quite difficult and having a safe environment to talk about and process life's difficulties is so very important. I am excited in working with you to help you experience the great things that life has to offer you.

In my short time with Esteban, he has been nothing but professional, thoughtful, wise, and most importantly, a great listener. I am very grateful for our partnership.

Esteban was the absolute correct person for me to talk to. I never once left a session thinking it was a waste of time. In fact, every time I felt hopeful and uplifted. I only wish I could shrink him and carry him around in my purse. I’ve gained more than just emotional help on the typical issues. Esteban has a calmness that rubs off on you, he brings a touch of lightheartedness to the hour. I was lucky to get paired with him.

Esteban is a very good counselor. Listens very well and has introduced me to new ways of viewing things that I previously had never thought of on my own. He challenges my way of thinking, which has helped me grow as a person.
