Professional statement

Guadalupe is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor based in New York. She works primarily with young adults and college students ages 18-30 who are moving through life transitions. These transitions can involve career changes, moving across the country, graduating from higher education, beginning/ending relationships, and leaving an abusive relationship. Life transitions, even positive ones, can leave us feeling stuck, anxious, confused, lost, and even, despairing. Whatever the transition you will not be alone!

Guadalupe incorporates a number of different therapeutic techniques including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), internal family systems therapy (IFS), and mindfulness practices. Guadalupe pulls from different styles depending on her clients' goals, needs, and preferences for a uniquely curated therapy experience.

Guadalupe takes a warm, non-judgmental, and collaborative approach to therapy and she believes the cornerstone of the therapeutic process is the working relationship between the client and therapist. She also places significant importance on understanding the impact of a person’s identity, culture, and environment on their experience.

Together, your work with Guadalupe will help you navigate through emotional discomfort, recognize and challenge unhelpful thought patterns, and offer a safe space for self-exploration and maybe even some risk-taking.

Guadalupe will move you through this adult transition phase while gaining insight, awareness, empowerment, and self-compassion for yourself along the way.

Guadalupe has an online therapy practice and conducts sessions in English and in Spanish. She offers virtual video sessions to help make therapy more accessible to each client. Guadalupe also offers her clients the first session for $75, so they can get to know her before committing to her full fee.


Message to clients

It's not you just you! We all experience difficult times that leave us feeling stuck, alone, and unsure of how to move forward. Our work together will teach you the needed tools to move through this time, manage difficult emotions, incorporate mindfulness practices into your daily life, and help you to understand how emotional wounds from the past might be informing your present thoughts and behaviors. Our work won’t just be about coping with stressors, problems, or transition—it will be about learning how to thrive in spite of it all!

I offer a free 20-minute consultation with my potential clients to find out what is bringing you to therapy, what you're looking to gain from this experience and make sure my training and skills lineup and I am able to be helpful. I also offer my clients the first session for $75 so you can get to know me a bit before committing to working together.

Client testimonials

"They didn't take my parents insurance plan but went above and beyond trying to get me the right care I needed elsewhere. They were sympathetic, professional, and very caring. I really wish I was able to use them. Any young person with disabilities in the NYC area should look to Guadalupe Bermejo first. Wonderful care - this is how mental healthcare should be."
