    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.

About this pro

I am invested in helping individuals, couples, and families to experience a more meaningful life, one that supports their values, hopes, purposes, and commitments. I enjoy helping people uncover and develop alternative stories of their lives. One of my goals as a therapist is to assist clients identify infinite possibilities for their future. I take an active role in our therapeutic conversations. I ensure that discoveries or new developments apply to your experience and your specific needs. I trust your expertise of your life, and will guide you in ways that will lead you to where you would prefer to be in life. I am devoted to creating a supportive, respectful, and empowering environment for my clients. I have extensive experience treating different populations; from children/teens to adults. I see people experiencing a variety of challenges such as sex-specific issues, couples conflict, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, relational problems, among others. I am licensed in Colorado and have several years of training in Psychotherapy. I consistently participate in post-graduate training as I believe it is important in order to continue providing excellent quality therapeutic services. I view the therapeutic process as a journey. Persons may not have a clear idea of where they'd like to go in their lives, and my role is to guide them by helping them create more meaning and uncovering unseen or neglected resources. I am committed to building a collaborative and trusting relationship with clients in order to effectively assist them in meeting their goals. One of the things that makes my work enjoyable for me is that I am naturally a curious person. This curiosity allows me to want to truly understand and connect with my clients' stories. I enjoy assisting clients understand how their past and present experiences may shape future behavior and influence their interpretations of their world. Most people come to therapy with a very clear idea of the problem/s that are troubling them and affecting different aspects of their life. I help clients deconstruct these problem stories, while helping them discover, recognize, and take meaningful steps toward their preferred ways of living.

Q & A

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

I offer a sliding scale starting at $55.00
  • 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 master’s 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 master’s 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.
