About

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Licensed School Psychologist, and fluent in Spanish. I'm a mother and a professional who works with children all day. I have just under 10 years of counseling and evaluation experiences in schools and clinic settings. I also work as a school psychologist and have extensive experience with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and 504 plans, as well as with psychoeducational evaluations, crisis intervention, stress, counseling students, & parent coaching. I am fluent in Spanish. I have comprehensive experiences in working with children, teenagers, adults, and families from diverse cultures.
I'm passionate about providing multicultural therapy to clients and am dedicated to working with those experiencing mental health/emotional problems, such as anxiety, depression, attention and executive functioning difficulties, trauma, and significant stress. I have many years of experience with child development, childhood delays, and behavior management
I use various types of therapy with clients, depending on the background, needs, and experiences clients come in with. I integrate cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness therapy/relaxation, humanistic therapy, and solution-focused therapy to best support her clients. I also have a registered facility dog named Nifty! We accept/support you without judgement!
