About Me

Hello! When searching for help is important to work with someone who would understand your specific needs. Working with someone that not only would help with your psychological struggles but understands the importance of spirituality in the healing process, is an important step towards a good therapeutic relationship. 

I am a bilingual and bicultural psychotherapist that sees this profession more as a calling than a job. I love helping people understand that they can have healthier and happier lives if they invest a little bit of time in understanding their way of thinking and how this impact their emotions and behaviors. I have extensive training in trauma, depression, anxiety and other mood and personality diagnosis as well as grief and substance abuse. Being able to reach both cultures: North American and Hispanic, has also opened my understanding of other relationship problems in couples and families when language and culture are barriers in their interactions.

I see every person as individual and I adapt my training to their individual needs. Counseling is not for the sick, but for the ones that believe in change. What you will receive in therapy is unconditional acceptance since that is the main point of my life's philosophy.

I look forward to start helping you! Should we start?

Reviews

Written by A.M. on Apr 16, 2021 after counseling with Amaranta for 10 months

Amaranta has skillfully helped me to navigate my way through my depression and anxiety, and has helped me to understand and cope with my difficulties with myself and others better. No other therapy has been able to help me truly understand and improve myself as my sessions with her have done. She is knowledgeable and firm yet compassionate and truly listens. She works with me rather than at me, and I deeply appreciate that.
