Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

It is possible to move towards greater satisfaction, freedom and power in this life time. I am comfortable sitting with heavy emotions when my clients face and integrate painful parts of their past in the name of greater stability and peace. It's important to also feel progress, find the rays of hope, and keep a sense of humor as we face the darkness. No one really escapes the existential pain of BEING. But we are in this together and can find relief. I treat many ailments including trauma, anxiety, depression, and difficulty in relationships. I work with individual adults and teens as well as couples and families.

I work with clients through a relational lens that is client lead. I have worked with clients in the following areas Grief, Sexual Trauma, Eating Related Challenges, Depression & Anxiety and Life Transitions. Being a Latina Cis-gender female, I know that my experiences in the world are impacted by this identity. I have worked with a variety of other people of color community members, and this approaches my plan with clients holding deeply their identity and any social justice dynamics that affect them in addressing pain in their life.

I am passionate about helping couples and individuals uncover the source of their emotional suffering and identify new strategies for adjusting to painful life events. I am concerned with the way our significant relationships, both early-on and in adulthood, impact how we experience the present. I collaborate with couples to identify unmet attachment needs driving disconnection in relationships and facilitate expression of these needs so partners can reconnect and feel secure in their relationships. My work with individuals promotes self-acceptance and value-driven action.

I’m here to provide a safe, affirming space for you to develop an understanding of yourself to overcome past experiences or fears that define you.

Is anxiety, depression, or trauma holding you back from being your true self? Do you feel stuck in managing difficult life transitions? Now, every little thing becomes super overwhelming. Those negative experiences reopen old wounds and cause new ones. You tried burying your pain hoping it would go away. You feel lonely and tormented. You feel exhausted, stressed, and angry all the time. You wonder how much more you can take. You are unsure of who or where to turn for help. In the midst of this painful journey, you do not have to go through it alone.

My approach in therapy is to create a warm, non-judgmental, interactive atmosphere in which we can bring the wisdom of your highest and best self to your current difficulties and dilemmas. I am attuned to the effect of unconscious patterns that begin in childhood and yet try to work in the present, trusting that the past -- to the extent it is important -- will show up in the present. My belief is that human beings naturally tend toward wholeness. I use education and mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral techniques to enable you to participate fully in your own healing and growth.

I work with individuals, couples, and families to develop a framework that will foster nourishing joy and holistic health. I welcome clients who experience social/racial oppression. If you struggle with communication, satisfaction, depression, meaning, or difficulty in life transitions, you will find resonance with my mindfulness-based and narrative approach. I work best with clients who seek to ease suffering and aim for transformation.

You can be free from the patterns and struggles that keep you from living fully, authentically, joyfully. You may be feeling stuck or overwhelmed by recent challenges or past traumas. Wherever you are in your journey, I can provide you with the support and tools to stay present while addressing ongoing issues such as anxiety, depression, limiting self-beliefs, harmful behaviors, or painful cycles in relationships. As we attend to these issues with compassion, you will begin to heal the disconnection from self, relationship wounds, family conflicts, and intergenerational trauma that may be at the root of these struggles.

Living in this world is sometimes not easy. We can feel isolated, scared and unsure of what to do next. Finding mental health services can be challenging and intimidating. My goal is to make it comfortable, convenient and safe. There are times when we feel unsatisfied and sad. We worry about what may happen next but we do not know how fix it. It is hard to sleep, hard to complete tasks and we start to lose our sense of control. Our emotions get the best of us and we sometimes are unable to communicate our needs.

Anger, shame, anxiety, depression, and perfectionism are emotions and traits that can be caused by trauma. Unresolved trauma can negatively affect our current relationships and family dynamics. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with you in order to manage trauma-related symptoms and reach a more meaningful state. I utilize a client-centered approach in order to create a safe space for my clients to process unresolved feelings/reactions. Forming a meaningful connection allows us to create a space that welcomes vulnerability, and the therapeutic relationship is just as important as the therapeutic modality.

Life can be hard... And we don’t have to do it alone. I work with couples and individuals ranging in issues of anxiety, depression, grief/loss, self esteem, relationships, and parenting. My own painful experiences, and the work I have done to heal, have afforded me the ability to be present and sit with people in their own pain. I have a natural inclination to seek out deep connection with people which informs my work with clients. This can help my clients to deepen connections with others, outside of the room. I work with couples to strengthen connection, deepen intimacy, and find their voice within the partnership.
