Nora Cuellar is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Miami, FL, who specializes in working with individuals, couples, and families. Her focus is on providing professional care and support to individuals grappling with various mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, addictions, substance abuse, and trauma. In her practice, she frequently encounters couples and families navigating complex interpersonal dynamics, which can profoundly impact their daily lives.
Therapy sessions with Nora are grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and a Solution-Focused approach. Additionally, she employs a Systemic Approach in her Couples and Family sessions to assess and address dysfunctional interactional patterns that no longer serve her patients' goals. Her work centers on helping clients gain awareness of their cognitive, emotional, and behavioral reactions to life stressors, with the aim of assisting them in developing their own solutions to the issues at hand.
Nora places a strong emphasis on empowering her clients to take an active role when facing life stressors and transitions. Her ultimate goal is to motivate clients toward congruence, where their thoughts and emotions find balance, enabling them to coexist harmoniously with their external environment. Her therapeutic approach is characterized by collaboration and acceptance.
