You’ve been looking for the right therapist; you want a good fit, someone who you don’t have to explain the basics of what it means to be gay, trans, or another part of the LGBTQ community. Life threw you into adulthood without a manual. You dread the judgement of people for the ways your relationship(s) look. Your family continues to affect the way you live your life, and their beliefs are holding you back from living a life that is genuine, joyful and unique. You want someone who understands living in the crossroads of being a person of color, and being queer. You’re anxious, you’re depressed, you need someone to just listen.

The decision to unite with someone for the rest of your life is one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life. With this decision you formally and sincerely promise to have and to hold this person, from the day you decide to wed, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish until death do you part (according to God's Holy Ordinance. The vow is beautiful and perfect in the eyes of God however carrying out these promises are not always easy. And if I'm being honest, we can find ourselves not knowing what the hell we are doing to maintain our once happy union.

My goal is to gently lead clients toward discovering their blocks to personal growth and fulfillment. I believe it is vital to develop coping strategies in order to experience relief from painful symptoms while gaining insight into your core beliefs. These beliefs can create blocks to achieving the life you want. They govern the way you walk through the world, your thoughts, feelings and behavior. You are not what happened to you, you are what you choose to become. My specialties include individuals seeking to gain mood regulation, recover from trauma, improve self-esteem and create healthy relationships.

A person plays many roles over the course of one’s life; some fill the role of a Lover, or a Fighter, Mother or Father, Sister, Brother, or Friend. No matter what role you currently play, the world may have pulled you away from the most important role you can play, which is the role of developing the best version of YOU, that's possible. My approach is based on embracing each person as a whole being, and by learning and growing together through the therapeutic relationship. This allows my clients to find and reembrace their true selves, as they redefine and refresh the roles they play in their own lives.

I collaborate with individuals and couples in creating therapeutic goals and a plan to help process their struggles with sexual traumas, partner abuse, child abuse, and other traumas. I utilize the therapy tools of EMDR (emdria.org), Trauma Exposure Therapy, Psychodynamic therapy using timelines, and Trauma-Focused CBT.

Have you ever experienced stress about making a decision/transition? Perhaps you are experiencing this right now. Oftentimes, we experience stress when making decisions due to our past or the unknown. As a Latina, I recognize that talking about our thoughts and feelings is not always safe or welcomed. Connecting to mental health counseling is still stigmatized within our community. We are often told “no pasa nada”, this thinking leads us to suppress our feelings which contributes to added stress. However, if we do not let go of stress or process past trauma, how can we live our best life right now?

What type of Lakewood 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Lakewood?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
