About Me

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.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Manuel Sarria. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written on Jun 02, 2022 after therapy with Manuel for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, intimacy-related issues, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

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.

His insight has been very valuable and he's been a tremendous help!
