About Me

Currently, you may feel emotionally stuck due to sadness, irritability, relationship-issues, anger, financial-loss, unresolved-trauma, loss of a loved one and/or anxiety. This may lead you into a whirl-wind of emotional-instability within your mind that feels chaotic and uncontrollable. But know that you are not alone and there is hope. Hence, I will provide you with treatment focused on using evidence-based-practices. I will engage you in creating a treatment plan that works for you! I will assist you in identifying your interest of focus (personal issues) and empower you to process and reach your goals in therapy.
I would like to provide you with focus by using evidence base treatment modalities such as CBT and person-centered. I have 9 years experience in the field: working and providing individual, family and group therapies. My focus in treatment is to assist you and find the best modality that will fit your personal perspective and meet your treatment goals.
The process in finding the right therapist is overwhelming because as a client you want the best treatment to fulfill your treatment goals. I will help you with the support you need to address the interest of focus (personal issues). As we work together, I will empower you to create a plan that will reach all of your treatment objectives and goals.

Muriel is a wonderful counselor. She is very understanding, smart, down to earth, and creates a safe space for you to speak openly. She has helped me start to identify my triggers and create goals. I look forward to our weekly appointments. Thank you, Muriel for your help so far, and I cannot wait to continue my journey with her by my side.

Muriel is amazing! Just after our first session we had already went over so much more than I ever have with any other counselor. We got right to the nitty gritty and it’s exactly what I was looking for in my sessions.

She’s awesome! She listens and understands your values and tries her hardest to have us realize that. She’s a true blessing!

Muriel is an outstanding counselor. She easily creates a safe space that makes you feel comfortable in being honest, vulnerable and expressing your own personality. She works with you to set out clear goals, objectives and treatment plans and takes her time in educating you as well. Her work enabled me to make a lot of organic progress in a good amount of time! Super grateful.
