Meet Berenice Torruco, MS, LPC: Your Path to Personal Transformation
Hello, and a warm welcome to ‘Becoming You’! I’m Berenice Torruco, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and the proud founder of Becoming You. Our blog, ‘Writing for Wellness: A Therapist’s Perspective,’ has been carefully crafted to serve as Your Premier Destination for Clinic Updates and All Things Mental Health.
Join us as we delve into the world of psychotherapy, exploring the latest insights and techniques in CBT, mindfulness, and EMDR. Our mission is to provide you with valuable knowledge and guidance for your mental health journey. Let’s embark on this path to well-being together.
With a strong background in mental health in both clinical and school settings, I am committed to ensuring that each client receives the most appropriate and evidence-based treatment orientation. My goal is to create a safe and accepting space where you can explore your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I specialize in providing individual, family, and small group psychotherapy, and I am dedicated to helping you embark on a journey towards personal growth and transformation. In this blog post, I want to introduce myself and share the therapy approaches that I offer to support you in your unique journey. Let’s dive into the therapy approaches I use to support your individual needs:
1. Person-Centered Counseling:
One of the foundational approaches I incorporate is Person-Centered counseling. This approach emphasizes the development of an accepting and supportive therapeutic relationship between you and me. I believe that a strong and trusting therapeutic alliance is the cornerstone of effective therapy. Through this approach, you will find a space where you can express yourself without judgment, allowing you to explore your feelings and experiences openly.
2. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT):
CBT is another essential tool in my therapeutic toolbox. It is highly effective in identifying unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviors that may be hindering your personal growth. Together, we will work to challenge and reframe these negative thought patterns, empowering you to develop healthier perspectives and responses to life’s challenges.
3. Mindfulness Techniques:
Living in the present moment is a powerful way to find inner peace and reduce stress. I incorporate mindfulness techniques into my practice to help you develop a mindful awareness of your thoughts, emotions, and sensations. Through mindfulness, you can learn to manage stress, improve focus, and cultivate a deeper connection with yourself.
4. Solution-Focused Strategies:
Creating meaningful change often involves setting achievable goals. My therapy approach includes Solution-Focused strategies that enable you to identify your goals and work towards them in a structured and empowering manner. We will explore your strengths and resources to help you take practical steps towards the life you envision.
