Mirella Caro-Cortes

LICENSED MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELOR

I currently work as a licensed professional counselor in the Greater Orlando Area. I work with different types of clients with many different presenting problems. However, my passion is working with adolescents and their families.  Receiving treatment from a qualified therapist will help your family regain strength, feel relief from societal pressures, and find the liberation of upsetting emotional distress.  I am very comfortable performing individual therapy, family therapy, and couples counseling. In my therapeutic practice, I integrate cognitive therapy, mindfulness therapy, and motivational interviewing.

MY THERAPEUTIC BACKGROUND

I have a solid background in adolescent and family work. I received my master’s degree in mental health counseling from the Walden University. My internship was completed while working at an adolescent substance abuse treatment facility. Working with dual diagnosed young teens helped me create an integrated approach that effectively provided individual, group, and family therapy to high-risk teens. I have additionally worked as a therapist as a consultant for several other practitioners in the area primarily working with teens and young adults. The bulk of my work focuses on seeing individuals and families in my private practice.

MY PERSONAL LIFE

In my free time, I love spending time with my family. Luis R. Cortes Jr., my husband and confidant challenges and supports me to continue serving Our Lord and to follow my dreams in any way he can. My children Alyah and Bobby are my strongest motivator and passion in life. My favorite pastime is cooking, reading, and entertaining others. My easy going nature and pleasant demeanor make it easy for me to connect with my clients.
