Hi, I am

Perla!

Hello, my name is Perla Alvarado and I specialize in Trauma, Christian Counseling, Stress, and Self-Esteem related issues. I am a bilingual therapist English/Spanish. I have training in attachment issues, family issues and relationship concerns. As a first generation immigrant, I have first-hand knowledge in Hispanic Cultural Issues and Immigration Trauma. I have trained to work with various issues through my experience in outpatient and residential care. I also provide EMDR therapy.

How I Can Help...

My approach is simple, I actively listen and provide you with tools as you engage in a journey of healing and growth. I provide a caring environment where you can feel heard. My experience and training has taught me that healing and change is possible. You have all within you to reach your goals and live the life you have desired.

As a first generation immigrant, I have first-hand knowledge in Hispanic Cultural Issues and Immigration Trauma. From a person centered approach, my focus is to join alongside you, treat you as a person rather than just focusing on the issue or diagnosis. Together we will identify what your treatment goals are and discuss what is most important to you. Depending on your needs there are various methods I can use during your therapy session such EMDR therapy, Solution Focused therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. You can expect that I will actively listen to your concerns and provide you with tools as you engage in a journey of healing and growth. My goal is that you will feel heard, validated and empowered.

When I am Not at Work....

When I'm not at work, I spend time with my family, two dogs and my two betta fish. I enjoy a good cup of coffee, a good book or show and good food.
