Many of my clients are adults and couples looking to address the impacts of anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, problematic relationships, and broken dreams. I offer empathic and engaging care, and my approach is holistic, relational, and integrative. By holistic, I mean that I see you as a whole person and not simply a “diagnosis.” By relational, I mean that I approach you with dignity and consider our work to be a collaborative relationship built on trust. And by integrative, I mean that I keep up-to-date on many empirically supported treatments, and I select tools that are best suited to your unique needs.

An ideal client is one that is asking for help. When a client is willing to ask for help, there can be breakthroughs in their personal life. Each client brings their need in one shape or form because communication varies and so does the way it's communicated.

But I want to tell you that there is hope and that hope is always alive.

I am a Latinx therapist and I know what it's like to have a therapist that doesn’t understand common challenges that a female-Latinx person in the USA faces. I understand the many roles we all have and how complex we are as I have many roles to juggle (mother, daughter, wife, sister, professional, etc) and value your complexity. I am passionate about serving the community and helping others live a purposeful and optimal life. I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and somatic techniques to best serve you in meeting your goals.

Life gets hard sometimes and unfortunately the world we live in doesn’t equip us with the tools needed to take on problems when they arise. Problems can get too big for us to handle, at times infiltrating themselves into various aspects of our lives, taking our agency while making us believe there is something inherently wrong with us. Within my work as a therapist I lead with compassion and empathy, knowing that problems live outside of us and not within us—always staying aware and away from pathologizing practices.

"If I only knew then what I know now." People often think about how their lives might be different if they had made different choices. Many experience the outgrowth of therapy in similar ways to the maturity, wisdom and peace gained in the latter stages of life. Within the confines of a safe and nurturing environment, I can help you explore why you think, feel and behave the way you do. With me walking alongside you, you can begin to develop a stronger sense of who you are and make positive changes in your life and relationships.

As you take one of the most difficult steps in your pursuit of relief, I offer you my encouragement & support. To thrive, we must face the discomfort of the challenges that are causing us pain & distress. The desire to make changes, yet not knowing how, or where to begin is overwhelming. That’s exactly what therapy can help you with. Together, we will process emotional experiences with a new understanding, while repairing wounds from the past and the present. These include relational issues with yourself + others, insecurities, feeling stuck, difficulty letting go of relationships and resisting change.

Understanding ourselves, who we are, how we were raised, why we struggle with the issues we struggle with, how we can change the things we want to, how to improve relationships and be more content with life - these are some of the thoughts and questions most people wrestle with as adults. It has been my privilege for 25+ years to journey with individuals and couples as they ask these vulnerable questions in the therapeutic setting. I am grateful to work with those that take the courageous step of coming to therapy, desiring to work through difficult and painful memories and experiences to move towards greater personal freedom.

No one should have to feel alone or unsupported during life's difficulties. Many of my clients come to therapy because they are experiencing depression, anxiety, or loneliness. These difficulties are often related to their relationships, identity struggles, trauma, or major life transitions. I enjoy working with individuals who feel overwhelmed/stuck, and/or disconnected from themselves, peers, or significant others, in order to help them regain confidence and connection. Additionally, I often work with couples (engaged/dating/married) who are distressed and struggling to connect, communicate, and find peace in their relationships.

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.
