I am licensed in Pennsylvania with 6 years of professional work experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including relationship issues, parenting problems, depression, anxiety, career and academic challenges, and managing emotions. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse and have experience working with motivation, self esteem, confidence and breaking generational cycles.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive-processing therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

Estela is so personable. It's very easy to talk to her...like a friend with great advice and no judgement. She helps keep me at ease and always feel better after a session, no matter the format.

Talking with Estela has helped so much in my healing journey. I can communicate with her like I’m talking with a friend of mine. She provides check ins, and genuinely cares about who she is talking with and understanding what they are going through.

She has a different style of interaction that I have previously experienced. She is more interactive and responsive than other therapists I have gone to. I like it because it feels like she is understanding me and makes me feel more relaxed and open.
