Ernestina is the best therapist I have ever had. She's attentive, truly listens to me, remembers the details of my life,and I feel like she genuinely cares. I also appreciate her knowledge of how the brain works physically and how that translates to emotions and thoughts. She truly is a great therapist.

About Ernestina Perez

I approach the therapy relationship in a collaborative, non-judgmental, warm, and compassionate manner. I will work with you to create treatment goals and a plan that fits your specific needs. I use evidence-based therapies and mindfulness techniques to bring out resilience and coping strategies that might further facilitate your growth and empowerment. My theoretical approach is psychodynamic and includes a mix of mindfulness skills and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I work with individuals and provide treatment for depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, cultural diversity issues, work-life balance, relationships, communication skills, and self-esteem enhancement. I also have experience in working with professionals in areas including peak performance and career development.

She is very attentive and interested in what I'm saying. She follows up with very interesting questions that make me dive deeper into my feelings. Things I have never even thought about before. It was nice to have someone who listensto intently and wants to get down to the root of the problem/concern.

Dr. Perez was lovely. She was a bit quiet at first, but I think she realized that I like feedback so she started providing more feedback as the session went on. She was very kind and her office was warm andwelcoming. She even called me later in the day to make sure I was doing okay, very kind. I look forward to visiting her again. The only issue I had was getting into the building, my appointment was at 7AM so you need a code to get into the building that early. I guess you're supposed to get an email about the code but I did not receive it. Another therapist let me in and was very kind and helpful.
