Therapy Approaches

Embark on a journey of transformation and healing with specialized therapy tailored to your unique needs. As Dr. Karina Samaniego Estrada, my professional training and personal background have equipped me with a deep understanding and capability to address a wide range of psychological challenges.

Evidence-Based Psychotherapy

I am committed to providing psychotherapy that is both impactful and scientifically validated. I utilize a range of evidence-based approaches, depending on your specific needs and goals, to maximize treatment success. Here are some of the primary therapies I offer:

  • Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR): Effective for trauma and PTSD.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Helps with depression, anxiety, and behavioral issues.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): Incorporates DBT interventions to manage intense emotional responses and improve relational conflicts.
  • Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT): Focuses on improving parent-child relationships.
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT): Specially tailored for individuals recovering from trauma.

Special Focus on Immigrant Experiences

As a first-generation immigrant who grew up bilingual and bicultural, I have a special interest in issues related to immigrants, including undocumented individuals. This personal experience enriches my practice and informs my approach to therapy with a deep sense of empathy and understanding.

Leveraging my credentials, including the PSYPACT ePassport, I am proud to offer my therapy services online to clients across various states in the USA.
