Luis Solis-Reyes (he/him/his) is a person-centered, empathetic, and enthusiastic therapist. He is bilingual (Spanish/English) and able to provide full and complete therapy services in both languages. As a first-generation immigrant, he cares deeply and is tuned in with individual, familial, societal, and cultural barriers and systems of oppression that can impact emotional wellbeing. He is passionate about working with individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Luis received his Master of Social Work degree from the University of Saint Thomas and his Bachelor of Social Work degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. He takes an eclectic approach to psychotherapy, which is informed by person-centered, culturally responsive, anti-oppressive and trauma informed care, in addition to cognitive behavioral therapy. In therapy, he provides attuned and empathetic listening, helps explore feelings, creates a welcoming environment that will allow for self-discovery and self-growth, empowers individuals to challenge places where thinking gets stuck, helps build self-empathy and self-compassion skills, sets goals collaboratively, and uses a lot of humor and joy along the way.
Luis enjoys a number of activities in his free time, which include running, biking, playing boardgames, attending sporting events, and spending time with family and friends.
In Luis’s words: “Reaching out to connect with therapy is one of the bravest and most courageous decisions that you can make towards your self-healing and self-care. The therapy space that I create is warm, inviting, safe, and judgement-free. In therapy, I walk alongside you in sharing your story and empower you to share your experiences, examine the roles and challenges that you have had in your life, and freely and openly share about how you are doing emotionally. Along the way, we will learn new skills, take a look at narratives that others have placed on you or that you have struggled with within yourself, and give power to an authentic, whole and confident inner dialogue that will help you navigate your past, your present, and your future.”
