Mrs. Chaela Figueroa, MSW, LCSW, EMDR-C
Have you ever experienced difficulty finding long-term change in therapy? Trying to navigate relationship tension, despair, various forms of anxiety, and the effects of trauma can be extremely difficult and confusing. This is why "commitment" is important to me. I aim to be committed in helping you throughout your therapy journey. In return, my ask of you is to actively participate and to be patient with yourself as you embark on your healing journey. I believe it is possible for my patients to experience growth and to renew their hope for a more positive future. If you've ever experienced a traumatic event, struggle with extreme worry, or find yourself unable to enjoy the present moment, I can help you! If you battle with disinterest in activities that used to be engaging, or feel extremely hopeless, I can help you! If you feel it is difficult or even paralyzing to manage extremely overwhelming emotions, I can help you with that as well. Since I specialize in trauma, I am certified in EMDR. I use other evidence-based practice like CBT and DBT in my practice as well. I desire to work with patients who are willing to put forth effort to experience change and are communicative around barriers to attendance. You will learn that I am flexible and understanding of life. I get it! I am committed to helping you experience growth throughout your healing journey. It is rewarding for me to see my patients make progress toward reaching their goals especially when my patients begin to understand the strength they possess and potential they have to navigate through their challenges. If you feel that this describes you or your situation, please reach out to me so that we can schedule a therapy session.
