Luis is interested in every individual’s unique life story that brings them to counseling. He believes the stories we tell about ourselves and others can affect our thoughts and feelings, so it is important to explore our relationships in a way that is conducive to our personal growth. Their goal is to meet people where they are and be a source of guidance as they navigate life’s many intricacies in a healthy and open-minded manner.
Luis’ experiences and research as a linguist have taught him the value of words and the power of language. Through his interests in language change and variation, he has gained an appreciation of the many different cultures of the world and an understanding of all the ways in which we are similar despite our differences in gender, race, socioeconomic status, sexuality, or other cultural identities.
Luis offers an integrative approach that includes elements of narrative, existential, feminist, and cognitive behavioral therapy so that, together, we can build a strong foundation for a happier, healthier you.
Luis is currently a graduate student working towards a Master’s in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness at New York University. He previously earned a Master’s in Linguistics from The University of Texas at Arlington and a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies and Linguistics from the University of Pittsburgh. In his spare time, Luis enjoys staying active with anything fitness related, playing guitar, and watching horror films with his dog.
