Tanya Alvarado's bio

This content was provided by Tanya Alvarado "Born and raised in New York, Tanya moved to Florida as a teen when her family was in search of new opportunities. From her teenage years, she knew that she was designed for helping others. Her natural skills included observation, questioning the inconsistencies and desiring change. Her friends would describe her as understanding, honest and resilient. Her skill set and strong desire for change led her path toward becoming a Counselor. Tanya completed her Bachelor's Degree at UCF in Psychology (minor in Sociology) and continued to pursue her Master's Degree shortly after in Mental Health Counseling. Tanya is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with the State of Florida (MH 12229). Her clinical experiences include residential, school-based and outpatient settings. She has worked in the areas of emotional difficulties, relational difficulties, substance abuse and more. Tanya's areas of expertise include children, adolescents and families. She is passionate about families and bridging the invisible gap in the family system. Tanya draws on her personal and professional experiences to approach families with empathy and genuineness. She draws on a strengths based approach which incorporates the client's strength instead of seeing the deficits. Tanya believes that her extensive experience working in the school based setting can help be an asset to children, adolescents and parents to incorporate the academic, social, behavioral aspects into therapy."
