In the first session I focus on what is on your mind, knowing there may be more to discover. My experience is with a wide range of problems, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, relationships, work. Sometimes we move quickly. Other times we must take our time, patiently and with compassion. We talk about what you tell me, how this shows up in sessions, and we add important links from the past. The therapy has a foundation both in my expertise and in our forming a unique relationship with respect for what each of us brings to the work.

From the outside it looks like you have a great life. But on the inside, you never feel good enough and are overwhelmed. It’s exhausting trying to keep it all together and you don’t think you can do it anymore. You give so much to others while you continue to come last. Life has become unmanageable or maybe you look to others for validation or a sense of self. It is possible to find relief, connect to yourself and feel balanced. It is time for change.

Talking about problems can be difficult, not to mention taking action to solve them. The change process unfolds when you are listened to and understood. With warmth, humor, interest, and respect, I will help you focus on action steps as well as just talking as you make and maintain contact with your goals and also with your hopes and dreams. To do so I will also help you examine any life patterns, active in the present or originating from the past, that contribute to feeling stuck. Assisting you to bring mindfulness, commitment, and self-compassion into the change process will be my role.

If you find yourself questioning how you got to this moment in your life, where things just don't make sense, I'd like to help. Looking for the answers by yourself can leave you going in circles. You may ask yourself, "why can't I just get over this?" In my 18 years of practicing therapy, I have found that helping people discover their strengths and self worth, without judgement, can be powerful. I'd like to extend that opportunity for you to experience and achieve a fulfilling life that you deserve.

I believe that everything you have done up to this point in your life, you have done in an attempt to take care of yourself. I will help you make some decisions about the usefulness of your thinking and behavior patterns. I will help you take small steps to make changes in those patterns, and to feel small successes that will eventually turn into larger successes. I believe everyone has the ability to change with adequate support. Life is made up of a series of moments. If we can learn to tolerate and find some peace in each moment, we become capable of "doing" life.

Being a young adult can be challenging. My young adult Latina clients find themselves feeling stuck, overwhelmed and exhausted. They are trying to embrace their culture, honor their family's values and at the same time trying to find their own voice and individuality. Struggling to find a purpose, overwhelmed with expectations, isolated and in constant search for wellbeing in this fast paced world. Are you a Latina struggling with life transitions, relationships, body image, anxiety, depression? Are you searching for a more balanced life where your mental health is your priority? I recognize your journey, I can help.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
