I am a bilingual licensed clinical counselor. I have worked in a variety of settings such as behavioral health hospitals, community centers and private practice. I have an extensive background in trauma specifically sexual assault and domestic violence. I have worked with perpetrators of domestic violence as well and for years ran groups on non-violent communication. I have worked with individuals with personality disorders, trauma, depression, anxiety and self-injury behaviors.
I believe meeting my clients where they are at and to provide a safe space for my clients to be themselves and to never feel judged with me. I like to encourage my clients to challenge themselves in becoming a better version of themselves and growing into self-fulfilled individuals.
I have so much passion for my job and I love what I do.

Compassionate, great listener, adapts to your needs. I connected with her immediately…. Felt like talking to a wise friend experienced in relationships
Easy to talk to. Listens well. Helpful
Isabel is a very kind and open listener who appreciates those willing to share with her. Her expertise and core values are very clear in standing up for womens right, overcoming trauma, and pursuing goals that are true to one’s self.
I appreciate how empathetic she is and she listens. She does. I appreciate the dialogue and everything she has to say. She great and I needed someone and she’s there.
She's really personable and I feel comfortable talking to her about anything!
Therapy with Isabel has been a wonderful experience. I feel so seen and heard by her. She truly understands the cultural values and morals I was brought up in. Talking to her feels like I’m talking to an old friend.
She has been there at every turn, every need I have had. I genuinely appreciate her.
Isabel is absolutely amazing, so kind and understanding. She really cares and I'm looking forward to trusting her in my healing process. Thank you ❤️
Isabel is such a professional counselor, but it never felt strange to talk to her about personal things. I find this very helpful since it is not easy to talk about yourself to a complete stranger, but Isabel is very comforting and it is more like a conversation than the classic therapist sessions I have had so far. She gave me good advice and healthy tips on how I perceive things, which made me feel a lot better very fast. I cannot recommend Isabel enough!!
Isabel is such a caring professional, she is dynamic and engaging during sessions and always manages to put a smile on my face.
Isabel is great. I looked forward to our sessions and her support.
Isabel has been an amazing counselor. For almost a month, she really let me talk everything I’m going through and feelings. 2020 has a been a horrible year for everyone and I was one of them. Thankfully, I used BetterHelp and I was glad to meet Isabel Acevedo. She was a amazing help and took her time to check on my regularly and made time on her schedule for a daily calls when I needed the most. She is a amazing woman!
She has helped me. In so many ways that I've got to see many mistakes I have done and I am learning from. Her and moving forward
Isabel is AWESOME. Our initial encounter made me feel safe and welcomed. I started to really trust in the process and trust that she would be a great fit for me. She made me feel comfortable. I'm trully happy that we were matched and I'm incredibly thankful!
