Faith Madrid, Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Life can be so difficult at times. Are you feeling stuck, depressed, anxious, can't seem to heal from a traumatic event, feeling like a failure as a parent, missing the intimacy you once felt with your partner, not sure how to move on after losing a loved one? Reaching out for help isn't always easy, but it is the first step towards positive change and growth.
I am here to walk with you on this journey; to help you discover your strengths, acknowledge limitations, uncover why things haven’t been working and implement the changes necessary to move forward and begin the process of transforming into who you are meant to be.
I specialize with older teens and adults. My style of counseling is relaxed, what you see is what you get. I do not use one specific type of modality, rather I tailor each session to the needs, personality, and goals of each client. If I am not a good fit fo r you, I encourage you to continue looking until you find the right therapist, you deserve the help you need.
