Sal specializes in tweens and teens who are struggling. Sal’s therapeutic experiences come from working in culturally diverse high school settings. Sal uses a person-centered and trauma informed approach in his sessions. He also uses cognitive behavioral therapy to help adolescents make lasting changes in their lives. Sal works well with students who are diverse learners and need additional school support.
Salvador also has experience working with teens who struggle with mood and anxiety. Sal practices pet assisted therapy with his canine partner Luigi the Therapy Dog. Luigi has experience working in the high school setting, providing comfort and support to teens and their families
Sal enjoys playing guitar (he taught himself), playing video games, and running. He was a student-athlete on both the cross country and track team, but now focuses on local 5k races and fun runs.
I support people in finding their strengths, building on them, and finding balance and contentment in the emotional, relational, physical, cognitive, and spiritual components of their life. I seek to create a safe and respectful environment for individuals and couples to nurture growth and healing.
I uphold the autonomy within those seeking help. I gently challenge them to courageously face life’s invariable disappointments outside the therapy room and to embrace opportunities to encourage others in their life journey.
