Philosophy of Care

I continue to feel privileged when individuals, couples, and families allow me to assist them in meeting their personal goals.

I am committed to serving each client with compassion and empathy. I am a strength-based clinician who believes in working collaboratively with you to identify your goals and achieve your desired success.

I recognize that there is no one method or model of therapy that fits everyone; thus I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy based on my clients’ needs. I often apply techniques from Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing counseling method.

Verónica Riquelme
Self Pay Rate: $99

Verónica Riquelme, LPC

Philosophy of Care

My experience working with clients directly has been very vast, challenging, and very rewarding. I explain to them that life sometimes becomes difficult and becomes tangled like yarn. I like to help them to ‘untangle’ the difficulties they are currently enduring. I guide them to develop a treatment plan based on their specific and current needs.

I like helping my clients by allowing them to express themselves without judgement. Gently I note situations that they may be able to change, and I guide them to make better decisions. I like to empower my clients and to build self trust and worth.

Life becomes unmanageable at times, my own life experiences have helped me to overcome many difficulties and become an empathetic and skilled therapist. Ultimately I really enjoy when my clients’ faces brighten up when they are able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I identify with the many difficulties women and men endure on a daily basis. As a widow I raised my two daughters on my own, and I was a father and a mother to them.
