Experiencing anxiety, depression, and difficulty controlling thoughts, behaviors and emotions? Are relationship difficulties interfering with your ability to experience a fulfilling and satisfying life? If you have worked with other therapists in the past, or are considering starting for the first time, I have been where you are and understand solutions can sometimes feel unattainable. You don't want to just pay someone to listen, you want to attain and sustain improvements in all facets of your life. You deserve to experience contentment, peace and happiness, and the people closest in your life deserve to have that version of you.

Is something in your life not working? Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, chronic pain? Are you stuck in a relationship that does not work or a job you don't like? I believe that therapy is a journey. I am here as your guide first in identifying what is keeping you stuck and then providing you the tools to move on. In so many ways we define who we are by our stories. And why not? They do contribute to who we are but often we can get so attached to them we can't move foward.

My counseling chair has taught me that there is nothing more painful than a broken heart or a crushed spirit. My style of counseling focuses on creating a space for safety, grace, mercy, connection, and trust—a space where my patients can be vulnerable and tell me what is troubling them. My clients and I work together to pause—take a breath—reload hope and healing—and relaunch a journey into self-care and the future.

Maybe you have a child who has many worries or is prone to negative thinking? Maybe your child is feeling overwhelmed with emotion not knowing how to control the rage? Or maybe your teen is having difficulty connecting socially with others and forming meaningful relationships? Having a child with social and emotional challenges can be distressing for family members. Therapy can help build skills of resiliency and improve emotional awareness. I am passionate about working with children, teens, and families with anxiety, depression, ASD, and ADHD.

Courage, dear heart, as life will present you with surprises and in time, you will manage each one with bravery. Our families can push our boundaries; our relationships can challenge us; and our careers can stretch us so thin. Negative self-thoughts can keep us in our heads and repeating old patterns can feel like a roller coaster of emotions. Past traumas can intrude our present; social injustices can break our community down; and gender and cultural inequalities can be an exhausting battle. Our self-care can plummet and suddenly we are not our first priority. However, you are leaning in today and making an investment in YOU!

When someone significant in your life is acting out, it’s maddening. Is it them?..is it you? Regardless, something has to shift. If you're in that space with your child, partner, or someone else; you know it can be a source of real suffering. There may be anger, depression, anxiety..it is stressful at the very least. Don't do this alone. Let's talk.

Welcome! As a Bilingual (Spanish & English), Queer Bisexual Xicana, & Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I understand that most of us want to feel seen, heard, & accepted. And although outward validation & affirmation helps, the deep work & healing lies in being able to validate & affirm ourselves, all of our identities, & lived experiences. In our lives, as we continue evolving & changing as individuals, we reach points where the coping strategies we have previously used, & that have helped us survive at one point, may no longer serve us, & can actually interfere with our ability to connect to ourselves & others.

Your future depends on what you do in the present. Making changes, no matter how small, can afford you the opportunity to increase your personal growth. For many people knowing where to start can be the greatest hurdle. For others, knowing does not always lead to "doing". Counseling is one avenue in exploring what you can do to make a difference in your life.
