Welcome, looking for someone that is warm, direct and knowledgeable. You found it! I obtained my MSW in 2013, from Rhode Island College. Following my graduation, I worked at a Psychiatric Residential Facility where I learned the benefits of ACT, CBT, TF-CBT and DBT modalities. In 2015, I moved to Mecklenburg County Public Health, where I worked alongside CMPD providing therapeutic support to families that experienced acute and prolonged trauma exposure. During my tenure in Public Health Department, I honed my skills in somatic approach, such as EMDR and Brainspotting, to help the individual improve their mental health.
If you are feeling tired of the everyday struggle; If you already tried talk therapy but did not see much improvement; Or if you are hesitant to seek therapy, I encourage you to try EMDR or Brainspotting. By tuning into your body's response when discussing a topic, your body can lead you to the healing process. My goal will be to help you become intune .
Life is not easy, but with the help and support of an outside perspective, it can and will get better. I have over a decade of experience helping individuals and families feel better about themselves, work and life. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Take the first step to help. Call or Luz Velez now - (704) 286-8113

I like to work with clients that are feeling uneased in any area of their lives. For example: stress at work, with family, social interactions and/or romantic relationships. If you are a first time therapy goer, we will build the foundation of the therapeutic alliance and gradually introduce modalities that incorporate more than talk therapy- like Brainspotting or EMDR.
