I am a trauma informed therapist who works from an intersectional lens to support my clients, especially those who have traditionally been misunderstood by the mental healthcare system. I work with clients who have experienced trauma, are undergoing major life changes or transitions, or who are exploring their identity and goals. I specialize in working with queer and non-monogamous clients and am affirming of kink and sex work. I also have unique experience working with religious and spiritual abuse, asexuality, those questioning their religious beliefs, neurodiversity, burnout, and self identified "former gifted kids."

I am a Mexican-American, Spanish-speaking therapist. I specialize in working with teens and adults who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression. I consider culture as an integral part of who we are and take pride in being mindful, compassionate, and respectful in considering one’s cultural background. Knowing how difficult it is to ask for help when struggling with life’s issues, I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where I can work alongside my clients, helping to minimize feelings of guilt, shame, and hopelessness so that individuals can process their stories and past trauma.

As a clinician, it is important to me to know the reasons for someone wanting to attend therapy and if an individual has ever attended therapy before. If this is something you have never done, I would like to understand how you feel about attending? I would also like to discuss (if you have had therapy prior) if those experiences were helpful or not so helpful? Understanding what has helped is important for me as a clinician so that I have an idea of what actually might help you. Making the decision to attend therapy or go back to therapy is not easy, so I want to always make sure my clients feel safe, heard and validated.

We are each born with the capacity to live a full, joyous and productive life. Through the natural events of our less than perfect world, this capacity is diminished. In some way we know that this is possible and at the same time realize that we are limited. The area of limitation may be in our relationship to ourselves - somehow being unable to experience compassion or appreciation for our own beings. These limitations create pain and unnecessary suffering. Just as we have the capacity for living full and productive lives, I believe that we all have the capacity for healing.

The simplest route to feeling better (higher self-esteem, more acceptance, compassion for yourself and those around you, and freedom from shame) is through knowing yourself in a deeper, more profound way. This kind of depth work can help you find relief from depression and anxiety, and more loving relationships. Using intellectual exploration and tool building, we'll look to your past to see the forces that have shaped who you are, and at your present to see which choices are working and which are getting in your way. Together we can forge a wiser, more confident future.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
