Well, hello there! Peace is what we all need and desire in the world we live in nowadays. My name is Narumi Amador. My years of experience in the field have offered me the opportunity to work with people of all ages, genders, religions, ethnicity, races, and sexual orientations. I use a client-centered integrated approach along with an attachment perspective when working with my adult, children, and adolescent clients and their families. *PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT OFFER ANY SUBSTANCE USE/ABUSE COUNSELING*
I am a Registered Play Therapist. Play therapy has proven to be the best treatment for children. I also have specific training to work with those who have experienced trauma and I hold a national certification in Trauma Focused CBT. In the past 6 years I have also completed dozens of Immigration Psychological Evaluations. SPANISH services are available.
I have always had a passion for connecting with and helping others.I am an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in the State of South Carolina. My road to becoming a therapist has been quite a journey, but I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else or loving what I do more. COME AS YOU ARE, my office is a judgement-free and safe space for you!
Hola! Mi nombre es Narumi Amador. En primer lugar gracias por su interes en aprender mas de los servicios que ofrezco. En los anos de experienca en el campo de la psicologia he tenido el honor de trabajar en diferentes areas: en hospitales, organizaciones gubernamentales y ahora en mi clinica privada. Tambien he tenido la dicha de trabajar con personas de diferentes culturas, precedencias y origenes, religiones y orientaciones sexuales. En mi trabajo utilizo una orientacion integrada centrada en el paciente y hago uso en mi relacion de la teoria del apego. Mi objetivo es fomentar el crecimiento personal en cada uno de mis pacientes.
Cuando trabajo con ninos utilizo la Terapia de juego, ya que los ninos raramente pueden aprender sentados por una hora escuchando a un adulto. Eso ya lo tratan los padres y muchas veces no funciona! Tengo una Certificacion nacional en Terapia de Juego y en Trauma (TF-CBT) utilizando la teoria cognitivo-conductual.
Siento un interes especial tambien en ayudar a la poblacion latina y de otros paises con sus necesidades psicologicas y he escrito numerosas Evaluaciones Psicologicas para sus casos de inmigracion. Mi oficina es un espacio de empatia, escucha y respeto.
