At times, difficult life events can have a lasting impact on our lives. These experiences are not limited to war veterans or victims of assault. They can be childhood or adulthood events, such as being subjected to harsh punishments, being mistreated, or being involved in an accident.
When stressed, people respond with anxiety, anger, depression, etc. These forms of responding to stress can become a way of coping, contributing to unhappiness. People can also experience cycles of anxiety and depression that have serious impacts on their lives.
I know how devastating these symptoms can be and the hesitation to seek treatment, especially if you have seen a therapist in the past and continue to feel “stuck” or have seen limited results. However, this is not the case with the therapy I have specialized in. I utilize Somatic Experiencing®, a therapy that takes year to be trained on. We would be targeting symptoms in a manner that will not overwhelm you and will improve your overall well-being.
Please feel free to call me to answer questions, explain treatment and to determine whether
we could be a good match. Please click on the link below to learn more about trauma.
There is hope!

Angelique Alonso, PHD
Angelique Alonso, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist in Miami at Terra Counseling Center. She has more than 10 years of experience working with clients to address a wide range of concerns that cause personal distress, which can be experienced as feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed.
Moments of distress may also be marked by interpersonal difficulties with others, including family, friends, co-workers, and partners, which can also be explored in therapy. In my work with couples, I carefully attune to each person’s needs, as well as, to the couple as a whole.
I also work with clients to pinpoint areas of communication that can be strengthened, developing stronger communication abilities that can positively affect other life areas as well.
I have extensive clinical experience with children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of mental health settings, in which I have gained a solid foundation in my knowledge and understanding of anxiety and depressive disorders, in addition to disorders associated with trauma and addictive behaviors.
At Terra Counseling Center Miami, we work with clients to better understand why obstacles persist despite one’s best efforts. I believe that individuals can increase self-awareness, which helps pave the way for long-lasting change. Please contact me if you would like to see if working with me feels right for you.
