I am empathic, warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. The bulk of my experience was providing out-patient psychotherapy for a Federally Qualified Health Center where I had the opportunity to serve a broad spectrum of people including children and their families, couples, teens and young adults and seniors. I also gained experience working with seniors on end of life issues, serving people in recovery, and working with offenders and survivors of domestic abuse in a private practice setting. My approach combines client centered approaches, motivational interviewing and trauma informed care. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Relationship issues, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-Focused Therapy

Mr. Sarria has a perfectly professional manner. Though he listens quite well, I am not always confident that his responses are as helpful as they might be. I think he could be more helpful if he were able to better rephrase some of what I am talking about. I think this problem is also related to his questioning practice. In other words, I do not think that he probes deeply enough to elicit thoughts I may find difficult to accept and articulate. Otherwise, I have found him to be a wonderful sounding board and that has been very helpful.
