I believe that some of the ways people developed to cope with difficult experiences in early life no longer adaptively serve them; therefore, I help clients gain insight into those patterns and develop new ways of being in order to make positive changes. I also deeply value the impact that family -of-origin and culture have on identity development, interpersonal relationships, and how one views the world. My dissertation focused on examining the relationship between academic stress and physical health symptoms. I have a specialty in working with adolescents, college-aged students, and young professionals.

I'm an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Clinical Consultant, Certified in IFS, trained in IFIO and EMDR (parts 1 & 2).
I am a devoted to helping you find relief from anxiety, anger, depression, shame, or whatever it is that leaves you feeling stuck. This relief can come by being in a relationship where all of you is welcomed and valued, even the parts of you that feel broken, extreme, or judged by yourself or others. Together, we'll get to know what's causing you these symptoms, help change your relationship to these symptoms, and work towards healing whatever wound is at the root. In this process you may find that "you" becomes more clear, and experience a greater freedom to show up in the ways you'd like at work, home, and in your relationships.

I traveled from Oregon to San Diego where I obtained my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy with Latinos/as.
At my graduate program I was introduced to Narrative therapy which helped me to appreciate the impact of culture and systems that surround us. I spent multiple years gaining experience in helping with multiple challenges such as neurodivergence, struggles in relationships, anxiety, and depression. I have worked with adolescents and adults who have come to identify with the LGBTQIA+ community. I have supported them as well as their families or friends with the understanding of importance in using helpful language to support one’s identity and witnessed how transitioning can create space for hope.
