I specialize working with individuals experiencing stress, anxious feelings, grief/ loss, and with survivors of intimate partner violence, male and female .
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?

I am passionate about guiding clients on their journey to be their better self. I utilize a person-centered, trauma informed, and empowerment approach when working with clients. I believe therapy is a tool that should be afforded to all individuals, and it is important for clients to have a therapist who looks like them and/or is understanding of their cultural experiences. As a Black clinician that identifies as a cisgender woman , I prioritize working with Black clients in general and Black women and LGBTQI+ persons in particular.

When helping young women and teen girls recover from trauma, I have experience using art as a means to help them access what words cannot.
People are always saying that you seem to be doing ok but they have no idea how much you struggle! Ever since the terrible thing happened you have been distracted, irritable, having nightmares, and you cry at pretty much anything. You are the friend who will always be there for others, but often feel like you are losing yourself in the process. You just want to laugh more, have good relationships, get your grades up or get better at your job. You have hope that you can feel better, but right now you feel stuck because you really don’t know how.

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.

You are exhausted, unmotivated, and too anxious to sleep. Your heart is broken, you feel hyperaware and fearful, and your mind will not be quiet. Your relationship may be on the brink of destruction or maybe you are scared you will never be healthy enough for a secure and stable relationship. Right now you are surviving, but need to move to a place of healing and peace. A place where you can thrive despite the challenges life has thrown your way. You know there has to be more but where is it and what is it?

Although I use Cognitive-Behavioral as the framework for therapy, I believe that you are the expert when it comes to yourself and that you will show me the best way that I can be of service to you. It is for that reason that I seek to tailor a custom treatment to your needs, rather than attempting to fit you into a pre-existing, one-size-fits-all approach. Celebrating and understanding each person’s unique differences, while remembering, “we’re all more human than otherwise” best sums up my approach.

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.

It is my goal as a therapist to provide my clients with the utmost support during their most trying times. I have worked with children and adults as well as families in crisis. Asking for help should not be seen as a weakness but as a strength; and being strong enough to identify that you need emotional support to better your quality of life is something to be proud of. I thoroughly enjoy building relationships with my clients while supporting them on their journey to become their best self.

“The quality of our life depends on the quality of our relationships.” -Esther Perel/ Healthy, loving, and respectful relationships are easier said than done. Unresolved trauma can skew our understanding of a healthy dynamic in our relationships with ourselves and others. 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.
