Hi I'm Paola. I'm an English and Spanish speaking Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist from Dallas, TX, where I grew up. I received my Master of Science in Psychology with a certification in Psychological services for Spanish Speaking Populations at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas. I have experience working with survivors of sexual abuse, children of divorce/separation, reunification counseling, women's issues, LGBTQ individuals, substance use/abuse concerns.
I work from a solution-focused approach from which I was trained in but I also incorporate a lot mindfullness-based, client-centered and existential approaches. I hope to provide every client that I meet with an open, inviting and calming space to explore and reflect within themselves how they would like to grow, release, expand, and share their experiences with me. I will tailor your shared experiences and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I look forward to working alongside with you on your continuing journey through a reflection of self, awareness and inspired change.

Paola is the best. She keeps it real and offers great insight. She’s very approachable and easy to talk to.
Hi Paola, I just wanted to say thank you for listening to my problems and thought processes. It’s been a short amount of time but I think I’ll be taking a break from BetterHelp for right now. It’s nice to have an unbiased person to listen and speak with.
Paola is very helpful at validating what I’m feeling and also helping me look forward towards the changes I crave and need. I’m very grateful to have found Paola.
Paola is great to talk to and allows you to have a safe space! She makes counseling easy and I’ve enjoyed her charisma and positivity.
She has been very understanding and helpful.
