RACQUEL RIVERO, LPC, RPT, ACS
I specialize in working with children (ages 3+), adolescents, and teens. My focus is on helping individuals build upon their strengths and gain insight into the areas of their lives that they desire to change. I believe that the therapeutic relationship and providing a safe environment are the building blocks that help me guide others in their personal growth and goal attainment. I strive to provide a caring, motivating, and supportive environment where clients can feel safe to explore any issues they bring to counseling.
I believe that helping individuals develop the skills necessary for change is an important part of counseling. I gear my therapeutic work to the needs and concerns of the client, utilizing cognitive behavioral approaches, play therapy, expressive arts therapy, solution focused therapy, and an overall eclectic approach.
I have experience working as a School Counselor, allowing me to provide insight into any school-related needs for parents and their children.
ERIN LARKINS, LCSW
I specialize in working with children and adolescents who may be experiencing anxiety and depression and require assistance in coping with their feelings. Empowerment through a therapeutic support enables them to gain confidence, manage their feelings and make positive behavioral and/or life choices. I believe this is important for them to build and and maintain healthy relationships.
Much of my experience is comprised of working with children in the foster care system. This has provided me with a crucial perspective of a child’s need for stability, consistent attachments and bonds, and a nurturing environment. Additionally, family involvement is key. I utilize play therapy, cognitive behavioral approaches, and an overall combined approach in my work.
I believe our life’s journey is enriched when there is an abundance of support, nurturing and knowledge.
