I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Connecticut with a Clinical Psychology Doctorates and background. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, coping with addictions, attention-deficit disorder, trauma and abuse, anger management and parents of kids with learning disabilities . I also helped many people who have domestic violence or that live with personality disorders.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, client centered, dialectical-behavioral, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for help , especially if social situations gives you anxiety, or if its difficult to work it around your schedule. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Alvarado was very quick to understand me and always listened to everything I had to say. Her encouragement and ability to know exactly what to say was invaluable throughout the counselling.
Dr. Alvarado listens to me well and understands the problems I face. She offers good advice and helpful worksheets to work on. I appreciate how soon, often, and fully she replies to my messages. I am happy to have her as my counsellor.
Dr. Alvarado is very responsive and shows an interest in my well-being. If I don't check in with her, she checks in with me. She is sympathetic and offers kindness and a good listening ability. She seems to understand my needs and gives me good suggestions.
