I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor that graduated from University of South Florida in Tampa, in May of 2015. My masters program was in Rehabilitation and Mental Health counseling with certification in Marriage and Family therapy. Over the course of my clinical work history I have worked in the following facility settings: At-Home, Residential, Inpatient/Lockdown facility, Outpatient, and Community Program locations. I have also worked the following types of clients: children, adolescents, adults, elderly, people with disabilities, people living with HIV, LGBTQ+ community, and people living in non-monogamous/polyamorous and BDSM or kink lifestyles. My style of therapy tends to focus on creative/narrative themes, with person-centered/solution-focused goal setting, while including or utilizing various techniques: existential, reality therapy, CBT, motivational interviewing, EFT, REBT, and evidence based workbook/homework services.
I am a caring, empathetic, and creative individual that believes that connection and motivating growth/personal development is the key to making progress in therapeutic services. Utilizing humor, metaphor, and talk therapy are additional methods utilized in my individual services. I look forward to getting the opportunity to help you become the person you hope to be.
In regards to Teens, I have experience working with adolescents in Outpatient, At-Home, and Residential settings. I have also worked with adolescents working on Identity, LGBTQ+, and family issues.

Luis is great and takes the effort to make sure he meets all your therapeutic needs and requirements
Luis holds space for me in ways that affirm my dignity and worth as a person. He’s invited me into a place of integrating humor in with self-compassion and the clarity to move forward with the challenges of my life. I also don’t feel like everything is about “my problems” or “what’s wrong with you this week-lets fix it”, but more acknowledging all the experience I do have and what I do know and working from there. I feel very much seen, heard and for the first time this year with teen counseling-not had to overly explain a part of my identity or my lifestyle to a therapist. He just seems to get it so we can get into the juicier topics of mental health.
Luis is an exceptional person to consider if you are looking for counseling for your teen (or yourself). He listens and is relatable for teens which is very important. We have seen so much progress and are thankful for all his help with my daughters anxiety and transition through teenage years. He is a life changer!
