Greetings! I am Dr. Mercedes Santana (she/her/ella) an Afro-Latine multicultural trauma psychologist, self-care expert, and career counselor offering self-pay services to adults 18+. It is critical that individuals feel safe, supported, and heard in therapy. I tend to integrate relational, cognitive, brain-based and somatic approaches where folks stories are honored within an affirming and liberating context. As well, I offer skill building and necessary coaching to help people meet their individual goals.
For career counseling, I offer interest/value/skill exploration, resumé tailoring, interview preparation, job search planning, and career planning services are available. I have graduate level preparation in vocational psychology and professional work experience as a career counselor.
To schedule a free 20 minute consultation to determine if we would be a good fit, please select Request Appointment. I respect individual's autonomy in seeking therapy and ask that you do not make appointments for others. Questions can be submitted via the "Contact" button.
PLEASE NOTE: My therapy services are offered completely via telehealth (HIPPA compliant video conferencing) and I do not accept insurance.
