Therapist in Miami, Florida Nestor Castellon, MS, LMHC

Nestor Castellon, MS, LMHC

I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist/Counselor that has been working since 2016 with a variety of clients dealing with Depression, Anxiety, Panic, Bipolar, Sleep Disorders, ADHD, Moderate to Severe Mental Illness, Substance Abuse, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Maladaptive Child Behaviors, and Trauma. I also provide behavioral parent training to parents with children who struggle with ADHD and Oppositional Defiance. Many therapists like to focus solely on the diagnosis, and although this is important, my approach is different in that I like to focus on addressing the needs and problems that my clients are facing and creating effective treatment plan goals to resolve those problems and needs. I like to focus on the strengths of my clients and parents, because although things might be hard at times, we all have unique strengths and abilities that we can utilize to overcome our challenges. My job is often identifying the problem and the client’s strengths, and to guide/teach the client how to navigate their problems and think about their problems in a positive and constructive way. I also enjoy teaching and incorporating coping skills practice in a way that allows the client to overcome current issues and positively change their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to stress and negative thinking. I try to adapt to the client’s needs, for example: in some situations, I can be very honest and direct, or I can elicit insight through a series of questions and scenarios. I try to involve and utilize the family to help create a cohesive support unit, and to help create an environment that supports the client as they accomplish their goals. The Counseling models I utilize are: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing Therapy, Psychodynamic, and Client-Centered Approaches. Something important I utilize in therapy and that I hold myself to a high standard is respect and kindness. If a client can respect and be kind to themselves and others, there are infinite opportunities for them to reach their full potential. Throughout my years of working with such wonderful individuals and clients, I have found that listening, being kind, and respecting oneself can fix a wide variety of issues. I look forward to working with you and being able to listen to you while helping you overcome your problems, as well as provide you with only the very best support and treatment possible.
