My passion is to help individuals, couples, and families understand their experiences and struggles. I enjoy helping clients produce a more productive life, reduce anxiety and depression, while helping one recognize and take control of one's undesired hurts, habits and hangups. Some of my counseling techniques including (REBT) that explores the connection between one's thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Many of my clients have benefited from sex addiction counseling. As a Latino, I understand the acculturation process that immigrants experience and bring a balanced approach and insight.
I received my master's degree from Asbury Theological Seminary. I have been trained on TFCBT to help those who have experienced trauma. I am an associate member of the American Board of Christian Sex Therapists. I use Emotional Focused Therapy for couples (EFT) who are considering entering into marriage or those who want to strengthen their emotional bond.
I would love to work with you and help you increase healthy relationship with others and yourself. I understand that life can be difficult and you do not need to walk through this alone. It does take a village! You can email me to schedule the first appoint and process some of your goals and objectives.

Rafa has such a unique presence. I would venture to say he has a gift of being an intuitive healer. I've watched him work masterfully with couples and he has also done amazing work with adult individuals. He's kind, genuinely caring, and very calming. He's witty and honest with a zest for life. I'm happy to call him both friend and colleague!

Rafa is a kind, dedicated and passionate professional that will thrive to help his clients heal their wounds and improve their lives.
