Hello, thank you for considering me to assist you in whatever journey life has brought you. Yes, a journey. Challenges are experiences that get us to the next stage of our personal development. However we should never feel like we have to go there alone.
I completed the Master's in Social Work program with a minor in Alcohol and Other Drugs. Within about two years of graduating, I became clinically licensed in New Mexico and the next year in Texas. I have 15 years of experience in individual, marital, family, and group therapy. Much of my work time has been with military personnel and their families. This clinical experience exposed me to working with many people from all over the world and with a variety of cultural backgrounds. Approaches in treatment are a combination of strengths-based, cognitive behavioral therapy, relationship dynamic approaches, motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, addiction issues, and more. Applying a variety of approaches in treatment are necessary because no therapy is suitable for how dynamic we are as human beings.
I apply a holistic approach with cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and person in environment approaches.
The goal of treatment is to show clients they had the skills and internal resources to meet their personal goals. It is just at times we need to do it in a non-judgmental environment.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ona Paskadi . 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.
Ona is amazing! She checks on me regularly and is a really great listener. I look forward to our sessions every time.
Ona, (Swahili means See/look) has helped me look and see the choices I have made. Through her wise counsel and listening ability I have more confidence in the choices I am making. Grateful for you Ms.Paskadi.
Ona has helped me have a positive breakthrough with an addictive behavior I struggle with. She helped me to approach my issues from a very cerebral and scientific standpoint, which resonates with me in a way other approaches have not. She is warm and engaging and very genuine. I have benefited greatly from our work together.
Ona is very easy to talk with. She has a great balance of listening and probing when needed. I feel so much better than before!
she's dope 10/10 would recommend
I only had one session so far but I can tell that things are going in a good direction
