I am certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
¡SÍ se puede! As a child of immigrants, I grappled with dilemmas of self-identity amidst the pressures of acculturation and assimilation. I embrace cultural diversity. Nonetheless, as a Latina I continue to fight against societal and cultural norms. How do you merge conflicting expectations and be at peace? My personal success with these issues, along with formal education and subsequent training have made me a strong bicultural therapist. Thus, I truly believe that memories and emotions are best processed in the language you experience them in because they are inextricably linked and are part of our identity.

My client-centered approach to therapy places my clients at the forefront of their own healing journey as I guide and support each one of them. I believe that individuals are the experts of their lives and that my role is to provide a safe and nurturing space for growth. My goal is to assist in identifying strengths and inherent characteristics to fuel resiliency in each client. Clients are coached to understand that decisions made, relationships entered into, and responses to triggers are integral in the healing process by recognizing that trauma in its many forms impacts engagement in repetitive and/or negative behaviors.

As a queer Black Arab immigrant, I recognize the importance of how social identities can have a great impact on someone's mental health. Even navigating the mental health system can be exhausting and at times disappointing. In my practice, I aim to provide a safe space for people who often struggle to find one due to systemic and social injustices. I assist people in the healing of their trauma and processing difficult experiences as they navigate living in a society that is in itself in need of healing. I am passionate about my work and love being present with my clients through their journey of healing and self-discovery.
