Finding a therapist can be very difficult and I understand that challenge. Contact me to see if we are a good fit. I look forward to connecting with you soon.

My approach is to collaboratively personalize a plan that works for YOU based on YOUR goals and needs. My training and experience include treating anxiety, depression, trauma, and improving relationships.

¿Está pasando por un momento difícil en su vida? ¿Quizá se ha estado sintiendo estresado(a) con ansiedad o depresión? ¿Tal vez sus relaciones no son lo que esperaba o le gustaría? Ahora, agreguemos gente que no lo apoyan y que parece que a propósito hacen que las cosas se empeoren. Esto es DESGASTANTE. La vida esta llena de sorpresas y no siempre estamos preparados para lidiar con esas situaciones. Hay veces que hacemos lo que podemos, pero no siempre es lo mas efectivo y el resultado es que nos sentimos desesperados, lastimados, y defraudados.
Tengo mas de 10 años de experiencia trabajando con personas que están listos para tomar las riendas de su vida, sentirse mejor, y crear un balance en su vida, para sentir alivio. La manera en la que trabajo es que en todo el proceso y tratamiento es basado a sus metas. Estoy capacitada y he tenido éxito al tratar ansiedad, depresión, y problemas de parejas.
No esta solo(a) y puede mejorar la calidad de vida que lleva para sentirse pleno(a). He tenido el privilegio de ser testigo muchísimas veces de ver como clientes alcanzan sus metas en este trayecto. Permítame ofrecerle un entorno seguro, sin prejuicios y completamente confidencial donde podrá crecer, desarrollarse y prosperar.
