  • Get to Know Dr. Beverly Pedroche

    I love what I do! That’s right, I am one of those fortunate people who enjoys their job. I’m a licensed psychologist, blogger, contributor for Ask Us Beauty Magazine, and owner of a thriving private practice in Boca Raton, FL.

    Through the process of psychotherapy, I help people feel better, emotionally. I can help you find solutions to problems and change your ways of thinking and behaving that are preventing you from enjoying life.

    Do I Know What I’m Doing?

    Well, I have several big, fancy degrees, including a doctorate in psychology and extensive trainings. You can read more about my education and professional trainings below. I, however, believe that the makings of a good psychologist include more than diplomas. Research has shown that a connection between client and counselor is necessary for the therapeutic process to be effective. So, I am going to use this section, in part, to discuss my personal style of therapy in an effort to help you decide if I might be the right therapist for you.

    What Is It Like To Work With Me?

    I work best with a client who likes to learn and who is ready to do the work. The type of therapy that I offer is direct, collaborative, and interactive. So, we’ll both be talking. I’ve been told that I am compassionate and a good listener; however, I am not afraid to challenge your way of thinking. We WILL: look for solutions, set and achieve goals, build coping skills, be mostly present-focused, laugh sometimes, possibly cry sometimes, skip the BS (who has time for that anyway). We WON’T: spend years discussing your childhood. I WON’T: read your mind (I’m a psychologist not a psychic), provide you with a prescription (I am a psychologist not a psychiatrist), turn you into someone else (I’m a psychologist, remember, not a magician).

    Some Psychobabble

    To help you, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Via CBT, you will learn to identify the errors in your thoughts processes that lead you to experience disturbing emotions. I will then teach you the skills necessary to change unhelpful thoughts and create lasting improvement in mood and functioning. In simple terms (probably too simple): by changing your thoughts, we will change your feelings.

    Are you are looking for:

    – A safe, comfortable, judgement-free space to share your concerns and struggles?

    You can be honest and vulnerable with me. No need to put on a brave or happy face here. Come as you truly are.

    – Coping skills to help you deal with your problems?

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy may be just right for you. And more good news…those skills and strategies can be generalized to future difficulties because, let’s face it, life will continue to throw challenges your way.

    – Honest engagement and feedback?

    You’ll get support but I won’t co-sign your BS. If you don’t want that, I am not the therapist for you. But if you want objective feedback from a professional, if you are ready for growth and change, I can help.

    -An opportunity to become more empowered?

    We all know an empowered woman when we see one. She confident and kind, ambitious and assertive. She is giving but knows her limits. She stands up for what she believes in, including equality, and she advocates for others. Are you interested in becoming more empowered? Empowered women empower women and psychotherapy can help you become more empowered.

    …Then let’s chat!

    Are you ready to take the next step?

    It takes courage and vulnerability to seek therapy, but the results can be empowering, life changing and, in some cases, life-saving. Therapy may be uncomfortable at times, but if you’ve gotten this far, you already are. I would love to hear from you; take the next step and contact me to schedule.

    It is important to me that you to have the best experience possible. Therefore, I keep the number on my caseload limited. Contact me now to inquire about availability and to see if we’re the right fit for one another.
