In the past 15 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: Making Mindful connections.

This group will explore cultural beliefs about sex, love and femininity. Participants will understand the true meaning of connection and the barriers that may impede healthy connections. They will learn the importance of security and closeness which are both crucial to build a long lasting relationship and further explore self intimacy and emotional authenticity.

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.
