You have taken a brave step by deciding to seek therapy.

I am a psychotherapist committed to providing culturally appropriate mental health services for the Latinx, LGBTQ+ and Spanish-speaking community. My work focuses on helping adults struggling with depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, substance use/abuse, trauma, and attachment disorders. I also work with youth (16-25 years old) with prodromal schizophrenia. Mental wellness is not often talked about, dealt with or even addressed at all within the Latinx community. If you are struggling with any of this, I'm here to help.

One of the most important things that therapy can help you to achieve is awareness. Awareness allows for change. This is a phrase I have coined that you will hear from me often. When we achieve awareness within ourselves, awareness of our environment, and awareness of our patterns of thoughts and behaviors - that's when positive changes can start to happen. As your therapist, I will be an additional resource for you as you endeavor to explore the areas of your life that need your energy and attention. You and I will develop a therapeutic relationship wherein we get to know one another and we work together toward your treatment goals

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist that works with all types of relational issues. Most of my experience has been gained through treating individuals, couples, and families. Individually, I work with clients to help them cope and gain skills to use on their own. With couples, I utilize methods to give couples the ability to communicate and turn toward each other instead of away. With families, I use a systems approach to help the family interact and communicate their needs.

I have been in private practice for the last 15 years. I work with individuals. Most of my clients are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or all three. Typically they are making their way through a major upheaval in their lives, such as divorce, tragic loss, job stress, severe communication problems, and strained family relationships. They're often depressed, angry, confused, or anxious. My work with couples and families is for the most part communication therapy. I never stop being amazed when clients explain to me that for the first time they're feeling heard, really heard, by their partners, children, or parents.

Substance Use Therapists

How do substance and drug recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other clients in recovery; in outpatient programs, individuals reside at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff often also includes people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other methods.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for substance use reduce the amount of drugs they consume. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.

Are there specific medications for substance and drug use?

There are medications approved to treat substance use disorder—such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. These medications do help people cope with substance use as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone can help reduce cravings, methadone is an opioid medication used to treat severe pain, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.
