Castro-Convers Counseling

Counseling & Consultation Services

About Dr. Adriana Castro-Convers:

I completed my doctoral (Ph.D.) training in counseling psychology at Lehigh University and interned at the Center for Multicultural Training in Psychology in Boston, MA. Over the last twenty-plus years, I have worked extensively with individuals, couples, families groups using a strength-based, relational and feminist perspective to treatment. I am a member of the American Psychological Association and a published author.

My areas of expertise include: mood disorders, personality disorders, clinical supervision and consultation, LGBT (specifically transgender and gender non-conforming individuals) and multicultural competence in clinical practice. I also offer therapy for therapists, clinical supervision, and life coaching/career counseling.  Psychological evaluations and assessments may also be conducted on a case by case basis.

I see counseling, or psychotherapy, as a collaborative process where clients participate in regularly scheduled sessions, during which they engage in identifying challenges and needs, increasing insight and self-awareness, and developing strategies to reach the goals they desire.

Counseling does not have to be a long-term venture. I often employ short-term psychotherapy approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that have been shown to be very effective with many emotional and relationship difficulties. However, I consider my approach to therapy to be integrative in nature in that I employ different types of helping skills that match a person's particular needs.

In addition to short-term approaches, I sometimes use longer-term, approaches. Through these approaches, my clients achieve success in making important changes, accelerating personal growth, attaining greater contentment, and enhancing personal effectiveness. Additionally, I often collaborate with other professionals with whom my clients are working, such as psychiatrists, doctors, teachers, or guidance counselors. Such collaborations frequently aid the client's success.

I am of South American descent and fully bilingual in English and Spanish. Therefore, psychological services are offered in English as well as Spanish, depending on the particular person(s) preference.
