Child, Adolescent, Adult Individually

​​Child, Adolescent, and Adult individual therapy will look very different for the different age groups, my job will be to create a safe space where healing and learning can take place. The recommendation of how long therapy will be based on such things as the client's current problems, history, level of development, ability to cooperate with treatment, and what interventions are most likely to help with the presenting concerns. Using age-appropriate interventions- children-play therapy or art therapy. Adolescents and adults could be music, art, nature, or exercise. We will explore what interventions work best for you individually.

Couples | Family

Couples therapy helps two people involved in a romantic relationship gain insight into their relationship, resolve conflict and improve relationship satisfaction by utilizing a variety of therapeutic interventions. We will focus on the relationship, not the individuals themselves. We will establish clear goals to improve coping skills, gain effective tools to deal with conflict, and improve communication. 

Family therapy or family counseling is a form of treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family. It can be used to help a family through a difficult period, a major transition, or mental or behavioral health problems in family members. Family therapy can help with communication and daily functioning. 

 

In all forms of therapy, we will gather and review the history family of origin, values, and culture of the client/family/couple.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

Equine Assisted Learning- Personal Development

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy- this model is client-centered, solution-focused, and evidence-driven. This model consists of a team of Mental Health Professional, Certified Equine Specialist, and most importantly- you and the horse. This model is groundwork therapy and allows the client to reflect project and make deep connections with the horse. The horse and the client establish a safe relationship- the therapist and equine specialist are here to ask the questions you didn't know you had. 

Why horses? 

They are unique, they are social, they have personalities, they have moods, and all are different. You would think I was talking about humans...

Horses teach us with non-verbal cues- coping skills, conflict resolution, reduction of anxiety, reducing symptoms of depression, and empathy. 

They teach us to face challenges and overwhelming fears. 

They are large, strong, powerful, and majestic- they teach us to be just that.

My Approach

Araceli Ramirez, LMFT: I am a Bilingual (Spanish/English) Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I understand seeking help is hard, beginning therapy and disclosing your most vulnerable feelings to a stranger is intimidating. In a collaborative approach, we will embark on a journey together where my goal is to provide you with a safe place of healing and hope. Creating a safe and warm environment to build our relationship based on trust, will allow us to achieve your goals to rebuild healthier relationships, and learn the skills to overcome future obstacles.

I am passionate about working with families, adolescents/children, couples, and individuals. I utilize different treatment modalities, including cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and structural and strategic family models. When appropriate and accepted by the client, I incorporate the principles of faith with evidence-based practices (Strengthening Families) and therapeutic methods to help my clients learn the healing of the heart and improve their quality of life.

In working with the Latino community, I find it extraordinarily fulfilling to incorporate the beautiful Latino culture to enhance living enriching futures. In my career as a Spanish bilingual therapist, my experience has been working with families of heavily influenced Latino environments, cultures, and backgrounds. My expertise is working with individuals and families with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues- infidelity, and talking about difficult taboo topics.

In more recent years, I have developed an unconditional love for horses. Animals that have personally helped me overcome fear, develop strength and increase confidence. This process of using horses is an experiential model. Through the relationship with the horse, you are able to share your story and develop awareness and motivation to build healthy relationships.

My research through my doctoral work has incorporated business models and equine-assisted services to develop a social enterprise to increase access for Latinx and African American youth. I am aware that equine-assisted services are expensive services. If interested in learning more about equine-assisted services in a therapeutic setting and non-therapeutic setting please complete the contact form and I will get back to you for a consultation.
