Hello,I am Eloisa Bonilla, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
I am empathetic and take pride in placing emphasis in incorporating a strengths based approach to empower clients to develop insight and awareness in order to make adaptable changes.
I am trained in EMDR Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing and Gottman Method. Even though I am trained in specific modalities, I believe in the unique experience of each individual and the need to tailor treatments to meet the needs of the client.; whether you are seeking individual, couples, or family therapy. To further give value of the unique experience of the individual, cultural competency is another component I make efforts to incorporate when planning treatment and conducting sessions. In addition to my trainings, I incorporate components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Existential Theory, and Family Systems, amongst other theories to help clients reach attainable goals. During our first visit, our intake session will consist of introductions, normalizing the therapy process/experience, describing my approach to ensure it fits your needs, intake questions in the form of a conversation (not interview), and I will also provide you with the opportunity to ask questions about what has been discussed. This is your therapy journey, therefore; it is important that I provide you with tools and opportunities to practice self advocacy.
