About this pro
Mauricio Yabar is the best! He listens and understands where my emotions are coming from and what the root of the problem is. Great expert "insider" knowledge, if you will, in that he'll know what the true issue is that's causing my current problem (when I would've had no clue on my own). Treatment plans are well laid out and always approved by me before starting them. He is a truly compassionate, patient, and genuine counselor who cares about your health. Mauricio Yabar es el mejor! Te escucha y entiende de dónde vienen mis emociones y cuál es el origen del problema. Es un gran experto proque sabe la verdadera causa del obstáculo que tengo en ese momento (nunca podría llegar a tal descubrimiento yo sola sin su ayuda). Planes de tratamiento son planeados muy bien y siempre son aprobados por mí misma antes de empezarlos. El tiene mucha compasión, es paciente, y es verdaderamente un terapeuta que le importa la salud de cada cliente.Sep 22, 2016

I had a couple of therapy sessions with Mauricio. He is very patient and knowledgable in what he is doing. I highly recommend him to any one seeking counseling help.May 21, 2016
Mauricio was really helpful as a therapist. He helped me navigate shame about my sexuality. My life has changed so much and I owe that to therapy and MauricioApr 14, 2016
Mauricio was an outstanding therapist who helped me get through a difficult time in my life. While dealing with a divorce and a death in my immediate family, I felt I didn't have anyone I could talk to. Mauricio was a great listener, but more than that he helped me realize the blessings I still have in my life. I have a better outlook now, and Mauricio was an important part of why I was able to get here. Thank you!Apr 14, 2016Mauricio Y.'s reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?On our first contact, we have a chance to get to know a little bit about each other. I typically ask about what brings you to therapy and answer any questions you may have about my services and the overall process of therapy. If you choose to schedule an initial appointment, I will send you some forms as well as a welcome letter that contains information about our first therapeutic meeting. I prefer to send forms ahead of time so that we don't need to take up time to sign during your initial session (as we will have a lot to get covered). We can discuss any questions you may have about the forms and move on to what brings you to see me. I will actively listen to your story and what brings you to therapy. It is extremely important that you feel respected in therapy. It can be a bit of a confusing process, and I work hard to ensure that it goes as smoothly as possible for everyone involved. I will make sure that all your questions are answered.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I earned a masters degree in Clinical Social Work from Widener University in Philadelphia; and I am currently fully licensed in the state of Colorado. I also earned a masters degree in Clinical Human Sexuality. Prior to that, I obtained my bachelors in Psychology from Montclair State University in NJ. I am professionally trained in Narrative Therapy. I have trained nationally and internationally with some of the most influential professionals in the field. In addition, I have trained in other therapeutic approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, among others. Continuing education is an essential part of my professional ethics, and it also allows me to provide the best quality services to those who consult with me about their stories.
