Entering into a relationship with a counselor is an important decision to make. We look for someone with the hope that we can feel better and live happier, more balanced lives. I believe that my role as a counselor is to assist you in reconnecting with strengths that you already possess, to help you in developing new skills and techniques that empower you and meet your goals. My name is Mercedes Carballo and I am the owner of Children‚Äôs Wellness Company. I have been in practice for over 15 years and have worked with individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents. In addition to private practice, I have also worked in adolescent residential treatment environments and in crisis intervention facilities. I have years of experience using various methods in my practice, including Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also offer in home and in school observations for children and teens to help in developing an appropriate treatment plan, as well as therapy groups for individuals, parents, teens and children. I look forward to working with you and your family to help you achieve your goals!
