Announcement icon In the In the spirit of working together to support efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19 telehealth sessions will be available.
In the past 17 years of my career I have received certified training in multiple modes of therapy including cognitive behavioral therapy, couples counseling, sex therapy and group therapies. As a bilingual, bi-cultural therapist, I enjoy working with people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, cultures, gender, and sexual orientations. My approach to therapy is founded on the belief that people can change aspects of their life that no longer accurately represent who they are or how they want to be perceived by others.
I work with each individual to modify thinking patterns to maintain positive self-value over the course of their lives despite of what kind of challenges face them. I aim to create a safe space for positive and long lasting change.
I believe in the power of choice, and focus on strengthening the willingness to improve and succeed. I believe that accepting help is not a weakness but a great competitive advantage. And you don't have to do it on your own. Welcome to your journey!!

Paola Andrea Rodriguez's Groups

Women's Group: Let's Talk about Love and Sex.

This virtual group is aimed to support women that are single or dating. This group will help you understand love from an attachment perspective. You will get a deeper understanding of why you adapt certain patterns in relationships. We will also address views about sex and how messages from culture, family, society and the media have shaped your sexual lense. Dating and new relationships can seem scary, you are choosing to enter an uncertain land often being afraid that you will get hurt. Allow me to guide you through this journey that can be scary but extremely rewarding. Welcome.

More about this group

Post Divorce: Taking the Next Step

This group is aimed to help men and women adjust mindfully after ending a significant relationship. For many, divorce can be a mixture of shock, grief, relief, anger and disillusionment. It is important to work through these feelings before starting a new relationship, otherwise we tend to repeat the patterns that we do not understand. Questions such as - How do I date? How do I trust someone again? When do I have sex with someone new? Do I want casual relationship or am I ready for commitment. All of these will be addressed in a group setting with a facilitator/sex therapist/relationship expert.
