"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."- Kierkegaard. Are you feeling stuck and unable to move forward from unhealthy behaviors, maladaptive patterns, negative thoughts and feelings, anxiety or stress? Do you wish your life was more fulfilling, better or different than it is but struggle to make a change? I understand how scary and challenging it can be to take that first step. However, I also believe that achieving an adequate, satisfying, and productive life with the right support is possible. Together we can explore the underlying reasons that are holding you back and identify new ways of coping.

You have started the search for support and are now faced with choosing a therapist to begin the healing process. It is important to not only work with an experienced credentialed therapist, but one you feel empathy and care from. One size does not fit all as people's needs are different, and many times can change. For some, I am "the one who finally listens & doesn't judge", helping to unwind feelings of shame and faulty childhood criticisms, while helping to replace them with a realistic, constructive self-appraisal.

Hi, I’m Alicia :) First, I’d like to say thank you for taking the time to visit and read my Psychology Today profile. Second, I’d like to commend you for taking this step towards caring for your mental health. Asking for help is not always easy and it takes a lot of courage to do so. So thank you for being here. I’m guessing you’re here because you are struggling with some personal issues you can’t seem to work out on your own. Well, if those issues include depression, anxiety, self-esteem/worth, addiction, trauma, relationships, or life transitions, then you’re in luck! Those are my specialties ;)

I believe life experiences sometimes put us in a place where we need help to guide us through different aspects of our lives. Pain and suffering caused by the loss of a loved one; navigating the often troublesome path of childhood and adolescence; interpersonal difficulties between couples; fears, anger management and family dynamics are areas I specialize in treating in a warm, safe and comfortable environment. Also, I feel that early issues, loses and experiences help to define how a person makes choices in their lives as they mature. As a therapist, I want to help my clients discover ways to make their life more rewarding.

It's 3AM and you're wide awake – sleepless with that aching emptiness inside. Your heart is beating so fast you can feel it in your throat. All you can think about is the fact that your loved one is gone. Completely overwhelmed with sadness and fear, wandering from room to vacant room, you wonder when your heartache will ever end. It’s been impossible to focus on your well meaning friends. Sometimes they say things that make no sense: “Just give it time.” "You're going to meet someone new." If you have to fake another “I’m fine” you’re going to stop answering your phone. Grieving alone hurts. Isolating has become your new normal.

Each individual, couple or family that I work with is unique and I value the process of getting to know my clients as the people they truly are. Some issues I treat are interpersonal conflict, trauma, depression, anxiety, attachment issues, addictions (including those in recovery), and difficulties with boundaries and trust.

If you just keep racing on that career treadmill, surely you will get where you are meant to be, right? But does it sometimes feel like the dream is beyond your grasp? Maybe anxiety, depression, or something else that you don’t know what to call is tugging at you. Or changes have come along that disrupt your sense of wellbeing. Perhaps it feels overwhelming or unachievable to balance the competing interests of work, relationships, family, and your future goals. Or the goals you once had don’t quite fit anymore. And where does that leave you?

Fresh ideas focused on understanding these experiences can change a person's life, often in simple but meaningful ways. This process is imaginative and open-ended. This process can be done through individual, couples or sometimes, family therapy.

Therapy can give you an advantage. Emotional health is part of our livelihood and well being. When we spend the time to focus on our internal truth- we better understand our trauma and the barriers that come in between us, our goals, and our relationships. These barriers come in all forms- pain, anger, depression, anxiety, fear, complacency. So we will discuss what you are experiencing currently, and what has impacted you throughout your life.

I believe childhood experiences create the template for adult life. Early losses, separations and trauma define the choices of strategies or defenses we use as adults. Pain and suffering can be caused by these early experiences. It is my job as a therapist to join my clients in their journey of discovery of these templates and help them to gain a more fulfilled life. I provide individual, couples and family counseling services in both English and Spanish in a safe, comfortable environment.

Pain travels through families until someone is ready to feel it and face it. No matter how hard we try, sometimes we still end up in the same patterns in relationship. You might be feeling stuck. I can help to break those patterns by identifying the reason they are happening to why you are attracted to a certain type. As children, we have little to no real choice in anything and you may have "forgotten" or never considered that you are deserving of a choice, an opinion at least a consideration. I hope to provide a space where you feel considered and deserving of exploring your choices.
