What is counseling?

Counseling is a clinical forum, a process shared between a therapist and client.  In this forum the therapist serves as a guide to assist the client to define and adopt strengthening fundamentals into his/her life.  It is an opportunity for personal growth, a time for support and a clinical process that yields a healthier, a more satisfied self.  


I am Irma E. Llanes and I would be honored to have the opportunity to work beside you in a forum that I believe to be rewarding and powerful. It is through my strong belief in people, that I can help you find your answers and help guide you to the paths you seek. 

I bring to you over 20 years experience in promoting wellness and the work of healing.   I have extensive experience in a multitude of issues including depression, anxiety, grief, domestic violence, healing from abuse/emotional trauma, marriage/relationships, emotional difficulties related to pregnancy, the postpartum period, adjustment/life transitions, acculturation, parenting, behavioral problems, stress reduction and personal growth. 

Call so we can find a time that works best for you.
