The honest answer is that I saw a tremendous lack of counselors growing up who couldn't relate to my individual cultural experiences. My strides to provide quality mental health counseling services to BIPoC has been a driving force in my career.
My style of counseling is an accepting person-centered approach with a trauma focused lens. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-focused techniques mostly. I believe in open communication with my clients so that we can confront what is stopping us from really enjoying the here-and-now. My nerdy personal interests have centered around existential themes, and practices of mindfulness. I have also made a daily commitment to do the work of openly identifying my own biases and experiences of race/culture. I’m hoping to help you do the same. I also enjoy art, music, video games (guilty pleasure!), reading about people and cultures, long philosophical conversations, and connecting in the moment with my family.
The most healing lesson I've learned in my career is that, no matter who you are, life is meant to be lived presently… mindfully – with daily commitments to making it a safe place for ourselves.

Hello! My name is Catherine Rincon and I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida. More specifically, I am someone who lends an ear, perspective, and encouragement to those who feel alone in their pain. I love to help people who are feeling very stressed and overwhelmed with negative thoughts throughout their days. I understand feeling overwhelmed by every day stress after the fact, and the struggles to connect with those around us in a safe way. I am well versed in partnering with people in navigating these emotions and coming out of it the person we aspire to be. My professional and personal experiences working with children, adults and families throughout South Florida have taught me to address the difficulties of moving on from hard things that happen to us – past, present and future. I have specific training in trauma informed care, mood issues and attachment difficulties. My interests in providing quality mental health services to those in the BIPoC community moves me everyday. Let's have a conversation on how to be mindful in our lives again.
