Alvaro Luna, MSc

I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) and psychotherapist, and I support gender and sexually diverse folks in making sense of their emotional and relational experiences. I strive to support clients in attaining their emotion regulation and processing goals and needs incorporating psychological interventions relevant to them. My education includes a master in Clinical and Health Psychology from Andes University (Colombia), as well as a master in Counselling from the City University of Seattle, which have provided me with a solid theoretical formation to practice clinical counselling and psychology. My personal experience as a queer person of colour, and an immigrant also inform my worldview, and I incorporate an anti-oppressive approach to my practice.

Approaches/techniques: I practice Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and typically incorporate interventions of other behavioural approaches as needed, including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Skills, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I have experience working with folks affected by trauma, queer people of colour, as well as with sex workers

Languages: I can offer psychotherapy in English and/or Spanish.
