Her educational background and rounded experience have been strongly marked by fundamentals of health and behavior psychology, in addition to key aspects of positive psychology. She enjoys working with a diverse population including children/teens, adults, and older adults, treating a wide range of difficulties including developmental concerns, adjustments/transitions, depression/mood, anxiety disorders, trauma, women’s health issues, and other health related problems.

These components create the A -team that facilitates and maintains change. Dr. Frehe-Torres is fully bilingual in both, English and Spanish.

She maintains balance by going for a run or walk, play super heroes dress up with her boys, and having a quiet dinner (no kids) with her husband.
