About Me

As we face many life choices on a daily basis, it can get quite overwhelming as we try to juggle our personal lives, family, friends, children, work, and unexpected events all at once. We tend to concentrate on helping others and avoid taking care of ourselves. If we have experienced past trauma in our lives, it compounds our life to where it feels like we are drowning. It’s time to heal, gain strength, and work out your barriers to improving your behavior, and I am available to assist on your journey. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 16 years of experience in the mental health field. I have assisted individuals with issues that include depression, anxiety, anger management, pain management, young adult issues, PTSD, immigration counseling, divorce, substance abuse, living with HIV, and healthy relationships.

My focus is working with young adults as they deal with life changing decisions and the stressors of expectations, the unknown future, and the anxiety of transitioning into adulthood.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts degree in Mental Health from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).

Reviews

Written by J.O. on Oct 01, 2021 after therapy with Pedro for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, anger management, and compassion fatigue

Pedro has a great vibe. I was able to develop an immediate rapport with him.
