Professional statement

Julissa Adames-Torres is a a psychotherapist/clinical social worker with over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults.

She provides individual therapy for adolescents, adults and clinical supervision to social workers. Her professional experiences has provided her with the opportunity to expand and cultivate a set of culturally humble skills that allow me to implement a holistic approach and pay special attention to the impact of intersectionalities. She helps individuals address concerns pertaining to depression, anxiety, past traumas, relationship issues, life transitions, acculturation and parent-child relationship. Julissa practices within a psychodynamic approach often integrating evidenced based models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. She offers intake sessions to further gather more information about my clients and what has brought them to me at the time. Sessions are then scheduled weekly. Julissa can accommodate a telephonic or video session, and currently, is only practicing via teletherapy.
