Therapy with Rovena

Mental health counseling is my second career. After I retired from my first career, I reexamined what matters most to me. Seven values floated to the top: authenticity, wisdom, love, compassion, empathy, self-care, and service to others. All of these have been important to me with varying priority throughout my life. These values are congruent with the counseling profession, and have helped me be present to my clients as I support them on their path to wellness. I believe all people have the capacity for change, and that even the smallest change can have a positive impact on a person’s life.

My theoretical orientation is Cognitive Therapy, specifically Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with mindfulness techniques. In addition, I recognize that many individuals have experienced some sort of trauma in their lives, including events such as the loss of a loved one, a traumatic medical diagnosis, and life-long marginalization. Finally, I proceed with the utmost respect for individuals and their diverse backgrounds.

I work with adolescents, adults and older adults. Prior to coming to Attuned Mind Counseling, I worked in a hospital setting counseling cancer patients/survivors, family members and caregivers who experienced the trauma of the cancer diagnosis. I support individuals experiencing a variety of issues including: career stress, life transitions, debilitating illness, and marginalization for a variety of reasons. I offer counseling in Spanish as well as English.
