"We all have our stuff." I heard a wise woman say this years ago. We might feel overwhelmed by all the expectations of life - of adulthood. We might be carrying the weight of something terrible that has happened in our lives. We might feel deeply alone - even when we are around other people. Maybe we feel out of control or lacking discipline, struggling to break habits that we know are bad for us. Whatever the case may be, you are not alone. Lots of people come to therapy. Lots of people feel much better after trying it.

As a Latina provider, I am mindful of how our culture and upbringing can impact our sense of self and how we handle challenges. I believe in being culturally mindful and also consider how physical, social and other factors impact our mental health. I am also open to discussing your spiritual journey if you would like. My clients usually appreciate a tailored approach that incorporates the most appropriate treatment for their specific situation. As professionals, we can also get very busy but with the availability of services via Telehealth, you can easily schedule this time for yourself and your growth. Hablo Espanol!!

As a neurodivergent, queer, Black , multi-ethnic therapist, I understand the need to appreciate life through an intersectional lens.
Have you often seen yourself as weird and feel like you never belong? Do you often wonder how to go beyond shame and move towards cultivating self-compassion and acceptance so you can show up for yourself and your communities? Or wonder how you can utilize your gifts, experiences, imagination, and perspectives to have a positive impact on our world?...Maybe you wish to have a better and healthier relationship with your partner and begin on the path of healing, growth, and reconnecting with the reason why you came together in the first place...

Life isn’t all or nothing, black or white, right or wrong.
Do you have difficulties in your relationships, friendships, or work? Do you have a hard time accomplishing goals? Are you feeling depressed or anxious? Are you stuck in a pattern of all-or-nothing thinking? There are many reasons to seek out therapy, but sometimes we find reasons to put it off as well. I know it can be scary to ask for help. Asking for help is a strength, not a weakness. Who do you want to become? Therapy can lead you to feel a greater sense of self, so you can live the life you want for yourself. You don’t have to continue to suffer.

I am an African American / Black woman. I believe that representation matters in mental health services, especially as stigmas around mental health are being addressed as Black people/people of color are seeking therapy more often in today’s society. I am an Associate Clinical Social Work and received my Master of Social Work degree from Simmons University. My goal when working with my clients is to help you (the client and/or your family) learn how to better manage the symptoms and behaviors you experience while developing and maintaining positive coping skills. I am passionate about helping young women and young adults.

Training in trauma studies within the African American , Afro Latinx and Latinx communities adds to my offerings in listening with empathy.
As a constantly busy person not tending to yourself because of a tradition of putting yourself last, it can be challenging to pause or ask for help. Something, finally, brought you to a halt and you are starting to give yourself permission to welcome support. I offer my enthusiasm to partner in your journey of identifying strengths, growing from challenges, and building on them. A multicultural background and experience working with clients of diverse narratives and identities helps me to remain open to your point of view. I have an extensive history working within the arts community with children, adolescents, and adults.

Are you feeling anxious & dissatisfied about your current way of being? Are you noticing habits & patterns that no longer serve you or have you feeling stuck? We all have patterns, learned throughout life, that attempt to keep us from our fullest potential. These patterns can cause us to become anxious, depressed, or question our entire purpose in life should they not align with our desired narrative. Maybe we question the validity of our feelings or the way we navigate conflict. One of the biggest side effects of our learned behaviors is feeling inauthentic to who we truly wish to be.

What type of Granada Hills mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Granada Hills?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
