About me

I am licensed in California and New Mexico with 20 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, relationship issues, & trauma and abuse.

I have recently left my position as a contract worker with the Defense Department counseling active military members and their families. I am deeply honored to have served those who have served our country for the last 11 years.

I have worked in prisons, mental health facilities, schools, substance abuse programs, military installations overseas, and with the dependent drug court system.

My approach is solution-focused, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, and mindful in nature. I do not pathologize or assume I know more about you then you do.

With many years of dealing with addictions, trauma related disorders, and anxiety it has been my experience that some insight, education, mindfulness, and basic relaxation training can overcome what has seemed an unsolvable challenge.

There is more to talk therapy then talk. Hope you will reach out to me for assistance.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Roy Abril. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I have had other therapists in the past and feel that Roy has been the best fit for me. He really took his time to understand my needs and made me feel safe to express myself . He has great knowledge and expertise in the areas that I am working through related to family trauma, strengthening relationships, self actualization, and setting boundaries. Through my sessions with him I have been able to process incredibly challenging emotions and have developed strong coping skills that I have been able to use successfully outside of my sessions. Our sessions feel safe and comfortable but with just the right amount of challenge. I would highly recommend Roy for anyone looking to get started with BetterHelp!
