Licensed Bilingual Behavioral Health Therapist
Masters in Counseling, Webster University
My name is B. Adriana Rivera. I have been working in the mental health field for the last 8 years and I have been a fully Licensed Professional Counselor since 2014. I have worked with community agencies that specialize in Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Schizophrenia. More recently I had the opportunity to work in a private practice setting in an underserved region of Texas. This position allowed me to interact with people from a variety of ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. I worked with individuals dealing with the day to day stresses to more severe symptoms.
I am a compassionate counselor and I want to ensure a good therapeutic alliance with all of my clients. One of my primary goals is to create a safe environment for my clients where they can feel comfortable to share their concerns without being judged.
I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I enjoy working with individuals dealing with different issues, but my specialty is working with anxiety and depression. Whether you are dealing with it due to a break-up, loss of a job, death of a loved one to dealing with chronic depression and anxiety. These disorders can be debilitating and they can make life harder even for those who have strong support systems and are high functioning. These disorders and/or symptoms don't define you. Together we will work to reduce these to a manageable level.
Self Esteem Issues
I like to empower my clients to have a voice in their lives. I enjoy teaching my clients skills to set boundaries as well as skills for reaching their personal goals. Dealing with all the daily hassles is already stressful; through counseling and practice you can work on regaining your confidence. We work on learning the skills you need to help you challenge the thoughts that bring you down so that you can learn to enjoy the little things in life. I believe that self-care is very important and I commend you on taking the first step toward a healthier you. My experience is with children, teenagers, and adults. Some of the issues I work with are: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger issues, bereavement, behavior issues, ADHD, and traumatic experiences. Counseling is most beneficial when you find the right therapist for you. Set an appointment to see if we are a good match.
