My life is spinning out of control. I don’t know what to do with myself. How will I ever cope? Will this ever end? If you have ever experienced these thoughts or something similar, you are not alone. Whether finding a new job or settling down with a partner, sometimes life feels like a never-ending struggle. How you maneuver through life’s difficult circumstances can be emotionally and physically challenging. For example, moving to another country, city, or town (as I did when I migrated from London England to California) or the dramatic changes one experiences at the loss of a loved one.

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!!

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.

I believe that therapy is a truly personal experience. The decision to seek support is a courageous one. As your therapist, I feel the privilege of being allowed into your life in a way that you may have not allowed others to be. My approach is customized to each of my clients because each one of us is on our own personal journey. My treatments are rooted in psychodynamic, humanistic, and family systems theories. Based on your individual goals and needs, I may integrate mindfulness-based interventions, narrative therapy interventions, or evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive behavioral therapy.

You’re stuck, or maybe you find yourself at a crossroads, a turning point. One road leads you back to where you have always been. You will wake up tomorrow and continue to hit play on your personal mixtape with the title track: “I’m too much and not enough.” Nothing will be lost, but also nothing gained. The Other road leads you to the unknown. You don’t know what awaits you down this path, but some small part of you is curious to see where it goes. Which will you choose?

What type of Northridge 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 Northridge?
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.
