My education, training, and experience --both in life and as a therapist -- have given me the tools to successfully assist clients with their problems and personal growth. I deal with a wide range of issues, working with individual adolescents and adults,couples,families. I believe the primary goal of most clients is to develop a strong sense of self in order to better handle life's struggles -- I help clients to strengthen their selves by understanding their issues more fully, changing their problematical behaviors, learning coping tools, and setting limits to protect themselves, thereby living more satisfying and productive lives.

I am privileged to join you on your journey in therapy. Many of us struggle daily with issues like anxiety, stress, depression, anger or just feeling misunderstood. We may feel stuck and ashamed at our inability to just will ourselves into being "better.” My aim is to make a space for you to feel empowered to process and create the change you hope to see in your life. I have experience working with adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, trauma, substance use, and other personal challenges. I have a warm and caring approach with my clients, and I value personal preferences in the therapy experience.

We all experience life’s challenges as part of the human condition, yet sometimes our symptoms of stress, worry, or self-criticism stand in the way of living the life that we want. Working with a clinician can help you reconnect with yourself and your strengths. Therapy often helps us to make useful connections between our actions, our thinking, our emotional reality, and patterns in relationships that we have developed over years. When we understand ourselves better, we can put into practice useful tools and coping skills to tackle problems that once defeated us.

Just because we have been going through life in survival mode does not mean we should have to. We also do not have to go through life challenges alone. Seeking help is not always easy, especially when we are feeling uncertain, lost, or defeated. At times, people need some extra support to process things with, manage difficult emotions, and be comfortable in our own skin. My role as a therapist is to listen, guide, and to help you navigate through life’s challenges. My goal is to teach you healthy coping skills that will enhance current, new and past relationships. Therapy is a collaborative journey to help you move forward.

I help individuals, couples, and families work through the places they feel stuck so they can achieve their own version of success. I meet people where they are empathically, respectfully, and without judgment. I am particularly sensitive to the ways COVID has increased stress levels to the point where issues that were once manageable now feel overwhelming and have developed tools to help navigate and regulate emotions during this very challenging time.

Welcome to the first step of your rediscovery journey! There comes a time in life where we get lost with our day-to-day responsibilities. During these times, we might find ourselves struggling in cycles, where we give, more than we receive. This pattern can spill over into our work environment, in our relationships with friends, intimate partners, and family members. Having this pattern of unhealthy boundaries can leave us feeling mentally drained, depressed, resentful, anxious, and angry. But I am here to remind you that this destructive cycle, is capable of being broken and rebuilt.

I am not currently accepting new clients, but will update my profile when slots open up. Many times there are messages we have received from people in our lives, stories told about us or stories we tell ourselves, that hold us back from being our best. Traumas cause fear, over-thinking and dissociation, which distance us from our authentic selves. Transitions in our lives can leave us feeling lost, wondering how to move forward and can result in feeling stuck. Anxiety and depression can seem as if they are all powerful over our free will.

I am a first generation Mexican-American with an intuitive calling to work with women of color who are going through life transitions. I understand the emotional challenges and the self-worth questioning that transitions can bring as well as the value of having the right support to help bring about hope and strength during these times. I know that change can be both scary and so empowering and would love to help new mothers, first generation college students, women pivoting into tech careers, individuals who are new to the country, those who have recently experienced relationship separations and job loss.

Life throws us so many different obstacles and challenges that sometimes it can be very overwhelming. You may struggle with relationships, trusting others, understanding yourself, suicide, fear of the future, feeling unappreciated or loved, and a lot more. The challenges we face, are common but may have us feeling and thinking the worse. This can cause us to feel alone and can cause us to isolate. Many don’t know how to cope and or feel confused. Many are lost with a lot of thoughts and feelings, not realizing that these feelings and thoughts are normal to have.

A core part of therapy is the strength of the relationship between client and therapist. I believe in building a positive therapeutic relationship that is collaborative, safe, and genuine. I often work with clients to better understand themselves and their patterns, gain insight into maladaptive behaviors, express their thoughts and emotions honestly, learn to cope effectively with stressors, and find a greater sense of identity and connectedness.
