One of the greatest things about life is the opportunity we have to truly discover ourselves whether it is alone or through close relationships. However, sometimes we get lost and we may feel alone, anxious, depressed, stressed, unimportant, alone or feel disconnected from the world. As much as we try to reach for life it can sometimes feel strange to feel or explain what is going on with us but counseling gives you the opportunity to feel safe. Seeking out help makes you strong, and gives you power to face your fears. This process may feel intimidating, but I strive to make counseling fit each persons unique experience.
I have experience in working with couples, children, adolescents, and families on a diverse set of issues. Topics in which I specialize in are depression, anxiety, LGBTQ issues and trauma. I am capable to do sessions in Spanish or English as best suits you. My goal as a counselor is to engage with you in ways that will be supportive and beneficial.
Through counseling we will figure out strengths and ways to help you in the long run with all the potential bumps that may come. My goal is to help you find a way to feel comfortable, and know how to self-care, accept and have coping skills. I will be there every step of the way to remind you that you are not alone by being compassionate, and nonjudgmental.
Una de las cosas mas difíciles es buscar ayuda después de escuchar que ir a terapia es ser débil. Lo que tenemos que hacer es transmitir una imagen de que somos felices y tenemos todo bajo control. Pero no siempre funciona, y ahí es donde nos podemos perder si no nos cuidamos. Una de las cosas que nos puede hacer sentirnos sin poder, sin energía es escondernos bajo una máscara de emociones falsas. Y por eso quiero ofrecer una oportunidad de ser escuchados, de tener un guía para ayudarlos en momentos difíciles. El primer paso es dares cuenta de que pueden llegar a ser felices y buscar ayuda.
Yo tengo experiencia trabajando con niños, adultos, adolescentes, familias y parejas en varios temas. Estos temas son depresión, ansiedad, trauma, problemas en relaciones, y con miembros de la comunidad LGBT. Mi meta es darles un lugar donde se puedan sentir incomodos sin temer de que alguien los juzgue.
Lo que pido es que me den una oportunidad para ensenarles que pueden mejorar y de que no están solos. Aunque es difícil ser vulnerable con una persona que no conocen, ya con tiempo podemos construir un a relación profesional donde puedo servir de un guía. No ay nada malo con tener problemas, todos pasamos por eso.
