Arantxa Mascarenas, M.S
Registered Intern for Mental Health Counselor Licensure
I am a dedicated pre-licensed mental health therapist with a master’s degree from Nova Southeastern University. I have a wealth of experience in diverse clinical settings, including schools, clinics, and outpatient services. My focus has been on addressing mental health concerns, fostering healthy development, promoting social-emotional learning, and enhancing executive functioning skills in children and adolescents aged 4 to 18, as well as young adults. I understand of the unique challenges and developmental needs that arise during these crucial stages of life.
As a bilingual clinician fluent in both English and Spanish, I can effectively communicate and connect with clients from different cultural backgrounds, fostering a sense of comfort and understanding. I am passionate in working with children and adolescents facing a range of issues, including behavior challenges, parents navigating divorce, recovering from traumatic experiences, ADHD, anxiety, and depression. I provide compassionate and tailored support to facilitate healing and growth.
In addition to individual therapy, I also facilitate a group specifically designed for teen girls aged 14 to 16. This empowering group focuses on enhancing self-esteem, navigating body image concerns, understanding the impact of social media, and building healthy relationships. Through this group, a safe and supportive space is created for participants to explore and develop vital life skills.
If you are a parent seeking professional guidance to ensure your teenager reaches their utmost potential, I can provide the support and assistance you require. Together, we will navigate through discomfort and distress. I firmly believe in the capabilities of your child, and my objective is to empower them to live authentically and rise stronger.
