Why am I here, and what are my lessons? The hard things in life, the things you really learn from, put you at a crossroads where you feel stuck and the pressure mounting. Everything is stressful and you feel powered down by the confusion, responsibilities and commitments. Something has got to give! Fortunately pain is an excellent teacher precisely because it gets our attention. I assure you the struggle you're experiencing now is guiding you. Struggle is a bonafide indication of real and important progress. If you're trying to gain traction, but don't remember how, I am here to help you understand yourself and heal from within.

In a world of constant transitions, at times it is challenging to feel settled with change.I believe therapy is an outlet to discuss, explore, and change aspects of our lives that are causing distress. Everyone has the ability to cope with life changes, and therapy allows a supportive, non-judgmental space to talk through feelings. I provide action-oriented, supportive, feminist, and person-centered psychotherapy. I am a bi-lingual (Spanish-speaking) and bi-cultural therapist that understands cultural influences and can express feelings and thoughts in a language that my clients feel comfortable.

Life is filled with wonderful as well as challenging times. The events, relationships, and transitions you experience often create typical and expected feelings. Sometimes, however, experiences and feelings are not anticipated and can leave you confused or overwhelmed. During these times, choosing to work with a knowledgeable therapist can help you regain a sense of control, confidence, and hope.

I believe that we all have an inherent need to feel connected, seen, and understood and that is often where the growth, relief, and healing begins. My clinical work is based on a dynamic and relational approach that works collaboratively with clients to gain an understanding of how early experiences underlie behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and explore ways to connect with others. My approach is grounded in a social justice, sex-positive, and anti-oppressive lens, that posits an understanding of how systems of power and privilege manifest in individuals’ lives and impact individuals' ability to heal.

I work with young adults and adults who are going through life transitions related to school, work, and relationships. My other areas of interest include anxiety, depression, communication skills, trauma, and healthy relationships.

The unique experiences, expectations, and traits of each person require an individualized approach to psychotherapy. As I work with an individual my approach may include elements of modern psychoanalysis, cognitive behavior therapy, family therapy, and client centered counseling. I utilize recent research in neuro-psychology to inform the various theories of psychotherapy. Faculty members, students, and creative individuals, as well as foreign nationals and first and second generation Americans are groups with whom I have significant interest and experience. A special interest of mine is facilitating the growth of individuals who want to change long term problems with self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, anxiety and depression.
