Every person has a voice and I believe it is important for that voice to be heard. Relationships can be messy and complicated. Our voices can often feel lost in the chaos. I work with clients to help them be, and feel, heard. In addition, I believe that no two experiences are the same. This means that even siblings raised together will have different perspectives and experiences of their childhood. These differences can lead people to define the world differently than others around them. I help clients to identify these differences and explore the behavioral and emotional impact they have on current relationships.

When we are faced with struggle, we can easily forget that these experiences lead to our growth and self discovery. Hope can feel illusive; however, with the right support, it's not only accessible, but it becomes the light that leads the way. I enjoy working with clients who are ready to explore the edges that are showing up in their lives and using this as a roadmap for exploration, integration, and growth. I have experience in working with adults, adolescents, and families and I'm passionate about empowering others in reaching their well-being goals and living life to the fullest.

The healing process is a journey that begins with a safe and trusting relationship with your therapist. I provide a non-judgmental therapeutic environment to facilitate your self-exploration.

I utilize a pragmatic eclectic yet holistic approach which integrates empathy, mindfulness, CBT, DBT, Narrative, and EMDR to promote change.

I am a bilingual (Spanish) therapist who specializes in working with children and families. I offer both in-office and in-home counseling because I recognize that many kids feel more comfortable in their own home than in a therapist's office. Considering the fact that I will only be involved with a family for a relatively short period of time, I use a family systems approach to therapy and I teach parents how to become therapeutic to their children.

From the cradle to the grave, we are wired for connection. I view mental health challenges to be a byproduct of disconnection. No matter where you are in life, I will meet you there! I consider myself to be attachment-based, emotionally-focused, and trauma-informed. Imbalanced and unpredictable experiences in the absence of emotional safety can leave us stuck with a negative self-view, as well as feelings of inadequacy and unimportance. Rest assured, I am safe, secure, and reliable as your therapist. You can expect significant self-development and growth working with me. Therapy is a place for transformation: both doing and undoing.

I believe the purpose of therapy is to empower individuals to recognize that they are enough and they already have the tools within themselves to thrive. I strive to meet you where you are at and provide a safe, validating, and welcoming place to explore and process your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. It is my desire to both sit with you in the lows and celebrate with you at the highs and make space for the breadth and depth of those feelings.

FAQs - About Therapy and Counseling

How can I find a therapist in Mesa?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
