Tina Avila, LMFT, BCBA
I see my clients as an individual who have strengths and struggles just like everybody else.
The difference between those who struggles and made it, are the one who have the courage to step into the struggles, taking the harder road, leaping into the unknown/uncertainty of the outcomes, persevere despite the issues, and brave enough to face the fears to get to where they want to be in life.
If it's you, I'll stand by you using my role as a therapist to equip you with skills, strengths, and to bring out the best version that's already within you.
You will see that working with me is like talking to a friend. I'm easy to talk to, you can tell this during our consultation.
I work with you at your own pace. I don't give advice or push you to do something you don't want to do.
I use humor, demonstrate empathy, and human connection more than just using interventions. I believe having good working relationship worth more than giving you homework or any 10 interventions combine. I'm people first, therapist second.
I love seeing my clients become their own HERO/SHERO! I can get you there.
