Clinical Supervisor, Therapist

Vincent Aguilar LMFT

I began my professional career with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and forged my path into becoming an accomplished Marketing Executive in Latin America, for such prominent companies as Georgia Pacific and Old Castle Distribution. Today, I am proud to say that I chose to follow my passionate intuition and became a psychotherapist (LMFT). I discovered a hidden purpose that lies in treating and empowering those suffering from trauma, depression, anxiety, organic mental illnesses, addictions, and interpersonal relational problems. My overall mission is to assist individuals in their quest of seeking balance and encouraging individual autonomy, while assisting them in discovering their own purpose and meaning.
