Do you need someone to walk alongside you as you navigate difficult times and seek personal growth? I am honored to offer a safe place for healing conversations. I have over 10 years of experience working with youth, families and individuals both in Latin America, as well as in the United States.
My particular passions include helping couples restore and enjoy their marriages, empowering youth – using techniques such as play therapy – as they navigate their own particular struggles, and working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Using a variety of methods such as Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy I meet individuals where they are and help guide them down the road to healing. I am fully bilingual in English and Spanish, so I am equipped to counsel in either language.
