Diego Castro, TLLP
Temporary Limited Licensed Psychologist, Advanced Certified Schema Therapist
Diego has been working in the mental health field since 2014, offering psychological and psychotherapy services for children, adolescents, and adults in Southern Mexico. He draws from an integrative psychotherapy approach, using evidence-based therapies/techniques that best suit each client’s goals, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Schema Therapy, Acceptance-Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
In his practice, the therapeutic relationship is essential and is the base for therapy. Diego’s goal is to ensure that his clients feel safe, understood, and respected for who they are no matter their culture, race, gender identity, sexual preference, and biographical or contextual background. He recognizes that every person has their own emotional needs and core values that help them through the process, allowing them to work collaboratively toward a shared understanding of what has led them to start therapy and help them achieve their goals.
Diego earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Anahuac University and a master’s degree in Cognitive Psychotherapy from Center of Cognitive Therapy, both in Mexico. He trained in Individual Schema Therapy at the Cognitive Therapy Center of New Jersey and The Schema Therapy Institutes of NJ-NYC-DC, United States, and is an Advanced Certified Schema Therapist. He is also currently an adjunct professor of Clinical Psychology at Hope College and has worked as an adjunct professor of Psychology at Anahuac University, Mexico. In his free time, he loves hiking, biking, running/walking, and spending time with family.
Currently a Temporary Limited License Psychologist in Michigan, Diego practices under the supervision of licensed psychologist David Thorsen, PsyD.
