"Life is difficult. . . a series of problems." Scott Peck wrote in Roadless Traveled. I can't describe it any better, but there are so many possibilities, changes that can happen when you take a step of courage. Therapy is a good way for some self reflection, to face the challenges, accept it and be at a better place. I believe that challenges are opportunities, for growth and strength; you can't do this alone, social psychology says. Let me help, to provide a safe place for connection and empathy to take that step, explore what may be holding you down and how you can be free and to live the best that you can be.

When you work with me in therapy you might notice that you feel comfortable very quickly, in part, due to my friendliness. If you speak Spanish, we can speak Spanglish and use common sayings or "dichos." I can validate many of your experiences being of Latinx descent and normalize some of these things based on my background being a first-generation child of Mexican immigrants as well as my extensive experience working with people from different Latinx backgrounds. I am very open-minded and know you're the expert in your life. You can share as much as you feel comfortable sharing while we build trust and work through your traumas.

We all can feel overwhelmed when dealing with life's obstacles & hurdles. At times, having a safe person to talk things out confidentially - truly promotes self-reflection, improves personal and relationship outcomes, and emotional depth to overcome and evolve to self- love and acceptance. Life can feel amplified when we harness our authentic values, trust our intuition, embrace emotional regulation & communication skills that allows us to connect deeply to self/others. I love working with ambitious professionals & parents who have been impacted by trauma & attachment disruptions, ADHD, CPTSD, & substance use!

After experiencing a traumatic or stressful event, you may find that you feel different: perhaps you move between feeling overwhelmed by fear, shame, anger, or sadness, to numbing out; maybe your world has gotten smaller as you avoid doing things you used to love; or you may have noticed your thoughts about yourself, the world, and other people start to change such that control, trust, and safety have become difficult themes for you. Additionally, maybe you notice your sleep has worsened, making everything harder. Trauma and stress take a toll on all aspects of your life, but you don't have to battle it alone.
