Working in the field of Trauma for the last 20 years has given me the opportunity to work with clients who sometimes have long histories of abuse and/or trauma. Coming from dysfunctional homes without getting help will possibly lead to unhealthy relationships in your adult years. If you have struggled with being triggered by others' behaviors, skewed communication patterns or perhaps substance abuse and co-dependency issues, I can help.

I am here to support you in your healing process. LET’S FOCUS ON YOU. I provide a safe space where you can take the time to share your difficulties, hopes and needs. In turn, I will help untangle your thoughts, assist you in discovering more about yourself and guide you in exploring your own solutions. With compassion and understanding, I can help you work through your challenges, support the changes towards your personal growth and celebrate your triumphs.
Do you lie awake at night, wondering why you just can’t find solutions to your problems? Do you seek a change in your life? Are you anxious about something - or about nothing? And can it ever be different? What if I told you that you have untapped potential and strengths already inside you to engage with and overcome your problems? Well, in fact you do. As a compassionate, caring and experienced psychotherapist with over twenty years in the helping profession, it is my goal to engage with you to recognize and utilize those untapped strengths in order to help you make the changes you desire.
Not feeling how you would like to? Thinking that things should be different? Stuck on same feelings and behaviors? I like to work with clients who don't necessarily know what they want but know that something is amiss. Working together we can find new ways of approaching problems and difficult situations. If you have experienced trauma, grief, loss, broken heart, anxiety, depression and everything in between, I am able to assist in the healing process. I like to have my clients lead the way in their healing and overcome challenges by listening to their needs and helping them remain aware of the power they have over their own lives.

ARE YOU UNHAPPY with yourself, your relationships, or your work? Your life doesn't have to be such a struggle. I can help you remember who you are and what you wanted before you derailed from yourself, your relationships, and your life.
Are you feeling frustrated? Is your inner voice getting so loud that you can't ignore it anymore? Do you need someone to talk to who's outside your circle because your family and friends aren't understanding? Are you feeling stagnant at work and find that your relationships are on rocky ground? I can assist you in finding your inner potential and making the changes that can lead to true growth. Together we can identify what has been holding you back, focus on your strengths and set goals to get you back on track!
If you are feeling stuck and need help finding solutions, answers, and some direction in life, therapy can be a healing place to unlock your inner wisdom, communicate feelings more effectively, overcome struggles/obstacles, and become your own personal problem solver. A therapeutic relationship, tailored to meet your individual needs, can offer support and tools to identify problems and barriers that keep you stuck and help you find solutions for your personal goals.
I’d like to begin by acknowledging the courage that it takes to seek out therapy. The reality is that life is hard! Yes, there are beautiful moments but the difficult times are very real. I am a BILINGUAL (Spanish speaking) LMFT providing counseling to individuals and families addressing depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, parenting issues, DCFS, and much more.
Are you ready to change your life for the better? No matter what you are going through, remember: you are not your problem! Life is both complicated and stressful, and we are not born with "how-to" instructions or "live-life-this-way" manuals. We are all in a process of trying to find personal security while feeling our way through life. I invite you to work with me to untangle and understand your life, increase personal security and life satisfaction, and resolve issues and symptoms that are holding you back from becoming the person you really want to be.
We may experience challenging moments during our lives. Talking to someone can help empower an individual to accomplish their goals and improve future circumstances. As a marriage and family therapist, my areas of interests are working with grief, trauma, anger management, depression, anxiety, parenting, ADHD, Autism, children and families, and the multicultural population. I also value the therapeutic relationship and use a collaborative approach. As a bicultural individual, I value and understand cultural differences. I look forward to hearing from you.
I work with clients to address mental health concerns and support those looking for self-growth, decrease anxiety, depression, life transitions, and relationship issues. I enjoy working with clients who are willing to put in the work to improve their situation because they understand that in order to see change, they must make change.
We all need support sometimes. Life can be difficult. We can quickly feel overwhelmed and get consumed with negative thinking. When we don't have the tools to cope, in a healthy way to tolerate stressors, we can fall into destructive patterns. My counseling style is caring, supportive & intentional. I want you to feel understood so that you are comfortable enough to explore your emotions, expore tough issues and help you to gain insight into your situation. For those who identify with the Christian faith, we can discuss Godly principles. Whatever your beliefs or values are, it impacts our experiences. I am glad you're here.
Are you struggling with overwhelming feelings and thoughts? Are you having a difficult time managing life stressors? Do you feel like no one understands you, your pain, or your journey. Do you feel stuck and need someone to help you find your way? Allow me to encourage, inspire, and guide you into recovery and healing.
