Karen Valdesuso Psy.D.

“Karen

I obtained a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and a Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) at Carlos Albizu University. I focused my academic training and practice in the field of Neuropsychology. I studied brain-behavior relationships and work with a variety of neurological conditions and psychiatric disorders. My experience ranges from clinical psychotherapy, intervention, assessment, and rehabilitation with a wide variety of populations and conditions, ranging from adolescents to older adults with traumatic brain injuries, cerebral vascular accident, epilepsy, dementias, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression, anxiety, among others.

My goal in treatment is to guide and empower clients to achieve their therapeutic goals. I take an integrative approach in treatment to fit the needs of the individual. The main techniques that I use in psychotherapy are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness. I have helped clients overcome life difficulties/challenges, think in a balanced/realistic way and overall feel better emotionally as well as physically. “No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of worrying can change the future” – Unknown.
