Xavier Bonilla, LPC

Position
Licensed Professional Counselor

I am a graduate of the American School of Professional Psychology (ASPP)- Washington DC with a Doctorate of Psychology (PsyD) in Clinical Psychology. I am also a graduate of Capital Bible Seminary and ASPP with Masters of Arts in Counseling and Clinical psychology, respectively. I am Licensed Professional Counselor in DC. I have been working in the field for almost 10 years and have a wide range of experience working with various populations that have different challenges. I receive supervision from Dr. Stanley.

My Approach: I firmly believe in aligning and joining with the client to provide assistance for their past and present challenges. I am a strong advocate for the needs of my client and believe in providing therapy that is individualized and specific for their needs. I use an Integrative-Psychodynamic approach with clients. This approach looks at the client through a developmental lens and how past experiences impact their current choices and decisions. However, the integrative component means that I use a variety of techniques from Family Systems and Cognitive-Behavioral Theory to assist the client with various difficulties.
