As a military veteran, I am comfortable with other veterans.
Hello, If you are looking for in-person (video sessions available) sessions and would like to talk to someone today, please call or send me an email. Typically, I am able to return your call or email within a day. I hear from patients all the time, that the hardest part to finding and connecting with a clinician is getting someone to take your call or call you back. I try to make connecting one of easier parts of therapy. I provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families, and adopt an approach that is engaged and collaborative. I look forward to hearing from you.

I identify as Mexican-American, gay, and ex-military.
To me, a large part of therapy is about grieving and acceptance so that we can find peace within ourselves and others; I am particularly good at helping people get in touch with their feelings. I tend to work with the heavier side of therapy, that include drug/ alcohol /cannabis addiction, domestic violence, narcissism, borderline, sex/porn addiction, sex offense, sexual shame, couples in crisis, infidelity, poly relationships, court, and anger management. I tend to work really well with those who enjoy dark humor, who are avoidant by nature, and those who are seeking redemption from guilt/shame.

I am an Air Force veteran with a passionate in helping others. I was born in the Philippines but raised in Maryland. After graduating from high school, I made the decision to serve in the United States Air Force as an Equal Opportunity Advisor. During my time in the military, I came face-to-face with trauma and learned about the complexity of the human brain. It became evident to me that having a trusted person by your side can alleviate emotional intensity.

I bring 11 years experience serving in the military.
I don't assume to know why you are looking for a therapist, but I do know that choosing one can be a hard decision to make. Like any relationship, it is hard to find someone that fits into your life and works well with what you bring into the partnership. I bring openness and honestly into the room along with a bit of humor and straightforwardness.

There are two separate (though not always) areas in which I have particular focus: 1) disordered eating/body image issues and 2) military and first responders.
I mean, let's be real... life can get very challenging. There are times we just have trouble knowing what to do. Friends and loved ones can be great sounding boards, but sometimes you need to look at things a bit differently. A new fresh perspective, a safe place to give the full nitty-gritty picture, that's what I'm here for! Also if you've got things you don't share but need to, therapy is just the place. Seen some things you feel like you can't share? Done some things you don't think others would understand? I'm here to help with the hard stuff.

My approaches are varied, and I specialize in working with those seeking healing from trauma, loss, or addiction, with a proud focus on serving the military, first responder, and law enforcement communities.
Life is in constant flux. Whether you or a loved one are struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, life adjustment issues, grief, unhealthy habits, or have a need to explore the deeper parts of yourself, selecting a counselor that fits you best is most important. Reaching out to an unknown professional you do not know can feel uncomfortable and overwhelming, especially when you or someone you love is hurting, but it is helpful to remember that counselors are human beings first just like you. Everyone, regardless of their challenges, can benefit from therapy.

I have worked extensively with veterans, law enforcement.
School in California does a great job of teaching you how to square-dance and play the recorder, but that doesn't teach the skills to navigate life. Emotional regulation? Changing problematic behaviors? Understanding why we can’t become unstuck? Where does one learn that?! Learning how to work through the challenges of life is nearly impossible without the right support and guidance. I would be privileged to help witness your healing process and guide you through navigating the dark and terrifying moments of life. Has anyone ever asked “what is wrong with you?” It is never what is wrong with you but what has happened to you!
