Hello, my name is Mario, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor currently living in sunny Florida. I have a Bachelor's in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling. I believe that everyone's life has value, and I have definitely found my own meaning working in this field, where I have been fortunate to be able to help many people improve their lives and their approaches to difficult times.
As we all face the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic together around the globe, I am looking forward to being able to help provide some comfort and perspective to any clients seeking counseling because of this. If you have signed up for online counseling to help yourself deal with stress related to this pandemic, I think that is commendable!
My clinical background is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Existential Therapy, and I also utilize approaches from related therapist include Person-Centered, Family Systems, Dialectical Behavioral, and Reality Therapy. If you are curious about what those are, and what might be the best approach for you, don't hesitate to ask!
My approach involves working alongside my clients in discovering what works best for you, celebrating your successes, and non-judgmentally learning from mistakes. I will help you explore the connections between past experiences and current issues, and support you as you confront your past, unhealthy people in your life, or even yourself. I am not shy to talk about past traumas or regrets, and I will not judge you negatively for your past - this is about your future, after all! I do not believe there is a personal problem too small, or too large, to benefit from some good solid counseling.
I look forward to working with you and seeing things improve in your life!
