Hello! We are happy you decided to look into our services and hope our website gives you the information you are seeking as you search for your therapist.
We provide services for clients whom we believe have the capacity to resolve their own problems with our assistance. We assist our clients in exploring and resolving difficult life issues. We use cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and provide structured sessions to maximize time and assist in meeting therapeutic goals identified in first session. We approach therapy as a working relationship between client and therapist.
Myself, Andrea M. Alvarez, am a professional member of The TLC Foundation and have attended their professional training to treat individuals with trichotillomania and other body focused repetitive behaviors. I treat children, adolescents and adults with body focused repetitive behaviors in San Antonio. If you or a loved one is struggling with this disorder, please know, you are not alone and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a proven effective therapeutic tool. Further, I have extended my professional development to OCD and am a member of International Obessessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation. I have attended their BTTI training for evidence based therapy for OCD. I treat children, adolescents, and adults with OCD.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
I truly strive to match the best therapist for each client's individual and family therapuetic goals. Each therapist has valuable experience that is considered when matching client to therapist.
Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.
