About

(

)
I am a bilingual immigrant therapist. I know how difficult it is to live in the United States with different backgrounds and values, and the challenges and sacrifices that come with starting and raising a family here.  If you are • trying to find who you are in this country • struggling with the cultural differences • having difficulties managing your kids and their new influences • fighting with your parents because they don’t understand you • tired of trying to explain your reality • looking for a therapist that understands your problems and culture •needing a Spanish speaking therapist... You don’t need to look further!
I have been in the psychotherapy field since 2008.  My multiple postgraduate degrees and professional experiences with different cultures lead me to always look for creative ways to integrate differences and make change happen at any level.
I am interested in creating a collaborative space where I can understand your struggles, and help you to develop your own internal resources and capabilities so they emerge as new skills and better strategies. This means that I make consistent efforts to meet you where you are in your journey and accompany you in your unique process of self-discovery.
Soy una terapeuta inmigrante, bilingüe español e ingles. Así que sé lo difícil que es vivir en este país con diferentes experiencias y valores, además de los desafíos y sacrificios que conlleva formar o criar una familia aquí. Si usted está: • tratando de encontrarse a usted mismo en este país • luchando con las diferencias culturales • tiene dificultades para manejar a sus hijos y sus nuevas influencias • pelea con sus padres porque no entienden • está cansado de tratar de explicar tu realidad • o sólo busca un terapeuta que entienda sus problemas, su cultura y hable su idioma. No necesitas buscar más.
Estoy en el campo de la psicoterapia desde 2008. Mis múltiples títulos de posgrado y experiencias profesionales con diferentes culturas me hacen siempre buscar formas creativas para integrar las diferencias y hacer que el cambio suceda a cualquier nivel.
No estoy interesada en encontrar etiquetas sino en crear un espacio de colaboración donde pueda entender su situación y ayudarle a desarrollar sus propios recursos y capacidades internas para que emerjan como nuevas habilidades y mejores estrategias. Esto significa que le acompaño en su proceso único de autodescubrimiento y realización.

Nelliana Acuna's Groups

Spanish Therapist

We will understand your Hispanic background because it is our own background. If you are an immigrant or a first generation here in Texas, you won't need to explain the nuances of your family dynamic or upbringing. As Hispanics, we understand the importance of family ties for each of us. We will help you achieve your goals without forgetting how important your personal and family values, your race, and your religious or spiritual beliefs are. We understand why it's so difficult for you to seek help first because “rags are washed at home” or “solo para los locos”.
