I am a bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has worked in both Mexico and the United States. I have over 20 years of experience in individual, couples, family and group therapy. I believe I am personally warm, understanding, emphatic, patient, caring, and compassionate with clients. And feel strongly that the nature of human beings tends toward growth and harmony. Along the way, the natural ability to self-regulate may unfortunately be interrupted. However, through the path of self-awareness, and self-responsibility we are able to restore our natural abilities and utilize our full potential, and live healthy life.

I am a LGBTQIA+ affirming, body positive, trauma informed, socially conscious, and anti-racist/anti-oppressive oriented therapist. I approach therapy with unconditional respect for you and your story, no matter how you define it or where it leads.

I use compassion and acceptance to provide a safe place for clients to process issues important to them; meeting clients where they are emotionally and spiritually so that I can accompany them on their current journey in life. I provide a structured environment and interactive therapy session which focuses on the client's agenda. As a therapist, I draw from different therapeutic approaches appropriate to the situation. When working with individuals, families or couples, I feel it is important to look at the individual - their personal story, thought patterns, and behavioral strengths - as well as their relationships with others.

As it is with all of nature, it is our human nature to grow. To be alive is a creative process, one that is wonderfully imperfect and for that very reason also full of deep resiliency and discovery. In this way we are impressively adaptable beings. However, sometimes our earliest responses to our unique circumstances are so intuitive that we begin to take them for granted as fixed aspects of who we are, even long after their usefulness has passed. The world changes, but our ways of relating to it stay the same. Our capacity to flow in connection with life seems stalled, blocked, or dulled. Our true nature feels far away.

Life can feel chaotic. Whether you are considering your first time in treatment, continuing or returning to treatment, my goal is to provide you with the platform and skills to effectively evaluate, identify and create solutions to help you. It’s important to remember that therapy is not always about ‘fixing’ a problem. Sometimes, it is about learning how to work with the problem by creating awareness, strengthening insight, developing or broadening skills you already have. It is a joint effort between the therapist and the client, working together, to impact change and bring balance to what may otherwise feel out of control.

I believe that each of us deserves to live life as our best self. Often, shame and judgement about our problems can get in the way of solving them. Developing compassionate curiosity is key to empowering ourselves and creating change in our lives. I believe that therapy can be a bridge to increased satisfaction and a sense of well-being. When life's stresses feel overwhelming; a safe, caring environment can allow you to understand yourself and your feelings, manage your stress, and change your strategies for coping. I am privileged to be involved in such important and transformative work.
