My experience came from years of supporting and helping adult individuals overcome challenges such as anger, trauma, depression, anxiety , relationship issues, and life stressors that are holding them back from being the best version of themselves.
Accepting new clients for online therapy - I help adults overcome anxious thoughts and depressive mood relating to work, school, or relationship. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients by building a strong therapeutic relationship using empathy, compassion, and personal and professional knowledge. My approach is person-centered and strengths based, as well as utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and mindfulness to help clients achieve their therapeutic goals.

I believe in healing as a community & work with Black, Indigenous, & Women of Color (BIPOC) to help address the impact depression, anxiety , & trauma has had on our lives. We are all deserving of being heard, valued, & living a fulfilling life. Yet somewhere in history, in society, in our families & within ourselves a different narrative may have been created- a narrative that’s prevented us from recognizing our worth. As a result, you may have developed a pattern of not speaking your truth, overextending your boundaries, constantly questioning yourself, or any other behaviors that were once ways of surviving but no longer serve you.

Depression or anxiety can also feel isolating, as if nobody else could possibly understand.
I believe that therapy can heal, but I also know that telling a stranger about your deepest pain can be a strange feeling. Perhaps you've been feeling sad, depressed or worried, and hopeless that anything in your life can change. Or maybe you aren't sure what you would even want help with. You know you feel bad, but if someone were to ask you "How can I help?", you aren't sure what you would say. These problems can feel permanent and unsolvable. After all, something feels broken and unfixable, so how could you not feel that it takes all the energy you have just to get up in the morning and go about your day?

I strongly believe that every human being is worthy and should be living their best life.

Together, I believe we can help you heal from past emotional wounds that are not allowing you to be who you truly are. I am a bilingual Spanish speaking Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience. I have worked in outpatient mental health programs, non-profit agencies, field-based community programs, and private practice.

believe that each of us, at one time or another, struggles with self-worth, coping with crises, interpersonal conflicts, or problematic behaviors. Depression, anxiety , and difficulty with relationships can really impair one's ability to be their best and to feel emotionally healthy and capable. When those times happen to you, it can help to have a caring therapist who understands, helps identify solutions, and doesn't judge. My style is to focus on the here and now, with practical strategies for making meaningful changes that fit you and your situation.

Anxiety Therapists

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioral therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
