Hi! I’m Julia Salas, I am a counselor in Miami Lakes and before I give you a long history of my experience, know that I will work with you so you will be able to wake up each day knowing you are a superhero in your own life. But most importantly, to love yourself. It's not always an easy road but it can be done!
Are you ready to make the changes?
I have 16 years of experience in psychotherapy and mental health counseling in clinical and community settings. I have vast experience treating:
My name is Lourdes Guiardinu and I want to be the first one to congratulate you for taking the first step to positive changes in your life. When we experience trauma or severe life stressors is not uncommon for our lives to unravel and at times, it might even seem impossible to find that light at the end of the tunnel. That is my goal here at Miami Lakes Counseling; to assist all of our clients in finding that inner strength, helping them grow by being able to find the solutions that were hidden behind those dark shadows. My great passion is bringing healing and peace to those who have been affected by a traumatic or stressful experience.
Does seeing a psychotherapist mean I'm crazy?
No, a lot of times people have a stigma that if they are seeing a psychotherapist or a psychiatrist they are crazy. That is not true, sometimes we need someone to guide our thoughts and address something they haven't on their own.
Do I have to talk about everything that has happened in my life?
It is up to you. Nothing in therapy is forced, and you are doing this because you want to explore and process what is going on. We might explore some of the past but it is up to you.
Will I feel uncomfortable?
There will be times that you might explore situations that trigger some negative feelings. But this is your time, and we will make sure the setting is cozy and comfortable for you, and provide much support for you to thrive.
