My personal approach stems from a confluence of Expressive Art therapy, Gestalt , Jungian, and Transpersonal psychology.
My goal as a therapist is to support you in becoming the person you want to be. I'll work with you towards finding ways to improve your life in the direction you choose. Therapy is a space for you to fully focus on finding what works for you. As a native Spanish speaker, I work bilingually with individuals, couples, families, and other groups.

Orientation informed by psychodynamic, Gestalt , attachment, relational, and CBT.
Online sessions only at this time. I see therapy a kind of "care-filled" container to hold and shape whatever process is needed to move towards the change you seek. Think of me as a compassionate and curious traveling companion for this leg of your journey. We all have natural drives to adapt, learn, and grow, but sometimes we get stuck and lose touch. I intend our therapy to be a safe AND brave space where we show up first, for YOU, so you can re-balance yourself in your relationships and in your life. Ask me about ketamine-assisted therapy (KAP).

As a clinician, I utilize an integrative approach including Person-Centered techniques, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused, Gestalt , and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I like to take a comprehensive, collaborative approach to treatment and focus on building a professional and positive relationship versus treating a diagnosis. To me, it is important to build a genuine relationship based on trust, openness and honesty, that emphasizes meeting the client where they’re at. I believe the client is an expert in their own lives and my role is to help them become a healthier, happier version of themselves.

The main orientations and counseling approaches I work from are Humanistic, Gestalt IFS and Transpersonal.
I work from a humanistic, integrative approach. The way that I view Integrative psychotherapy is to honor the process of taking disowned or unresolved aspects (or parts) of the self and bring them together in order to help one find their "true authentic self." This process reduces defense mechanisms, and supports each client to integrate those protective parts in order to engage with the world, themselves and the people they care about. I bring presence, as well as unconditional personal regard to all my clients.

I am also a certified Gestalt Therapist with Children and Adolescents and a Registered Play Therapist.
A person comes to therapy when their present ways of being in relationship, or in the world, no longer seem to hold the meaning they once did. My aim is to support you in creating a new foundation of hope, purpose, and meaning in your life. I help people seek wholeness through the integration of mind, body, and soul, thus expanding their current level of understanding, and in so doing, creating the capacity to live more meaningfully.

I work with adults and employ a variety of interventions to facilitate growth including CBT, TA, gestalt , and transpersonal psychology, EMDR, guided imagery, trauma sensitive yoga and other therapies.
Feeling like no matter how hard you try, it’s never enough? Negative thoughts such as this can generate anger, guilt, sadness, fear and other feelings that can take us down a path that leads to anxiety, depression, or other symptoms of mental and physical distress. They can impact our identity, relationships, behaviors, health, and ultimately our happiness. If we don’t examine our faulty thinking and heal the wounds that drive our negative feelings of “not good enough,” it becomes difficult to truly be our self and live an authentic life. Self-examination can be an empowering journey that leads to self-acceptance and happiness.

Do you ever feel disconnected from yourself or others? Although our country has made progress in raising mental health awareness, a great deal of stigma remains. In many communities, these issues are often shrouded by silence and shame, fostering mental health minimization. I have experience working with individuals and family relationships. I work with problems that arise in blended families, work, health, and career, trying to create better relationships and less conflict. Through role-plays, Gestalt techniques, and mindfulness, you can gain the power to reflect on your feelings, understand yourself and feel better.

As a Gestalt therapist, my aim is to meet you where you are and help you reconnect with your values and lead the life you truly want.
How you feel today is important to me. Many people coming to therapy believe that something is missing. It might be love, understanding, support, meaning, a sense of purpose, lack of control, a job, or a partner. Therapy can help. I would be honored to guide you through a self-empowering journey that could help you enable the changes you would like to achieve in your personal life or within your family. I work directly with individuals, couples, children, and families. My style is gentle, compassionate and authentic, and I provide unconditional acceptance, optimism, patience, and trust.

I have an engaged, relational approach, grounded in modern research on the brain, trauma and attachment. I believe the goal of therapy is to realistically become who you truly are--not to fix you, or tell you how to be. I'm an eco-psychologist, a feminist therapist, and a Jungian. If you work with me, we'll look at your personal, family and cultural history, and the beliefs you hold about yourself and the world. Where we find traumas, disturbing memories, negative beliefs and uncomfortable feelings, we can use a variety of methods to loosen then, learn from them and heal them, including EMDR. I'm LGBTQII-positive.

When day to day life feels overwhelming, finding meaning, connection and authenticity can feel elusive. Layer on the struggles inherent in our current world—family trauma, life transitions, managing life in a pandemic—you name it, and it’s no wonder handling it all can feel impossible. In my work, I help people navigate life’s murky waters, and the anxiety and feelings of inertia that can come with the territory. Helping people connect with, and stay true to, their authentic selves is what makes my work meaningful.

I generally work with high functioning people at important junctures in life where the suffering is great. Asking for help is often a powerful step of surrendering the ego's attempts to resist change. Symptoms are often a sign that something is trying to wake up inside of you. When you turn your attention inward and get intimate with your inner life you can start to find the energy to heal, to grow and to change. I specialize in somatic table work for treating developmental trauma. This work focuses on repairing developmental wounds, strengthening somatic resilience and increasing capacity for regulation in the nervous system.

I work with those who are ready to navigate the ebbs and flows of life as a grounded and resilient individual. I provide challenging inquiry while encouraging you to explore your inner experience through mindfulness and experiential exercises. As humans, we can be riddled with beliefs and expectations that keep us stuck and frustrated; acting out strategies that have failed us over and over again. These strategies are adaptations from childhood and life experiences. I believe therapy can be a place to repair these experiences and proactively bring balance back into your life.

We're artists, leaning into the world & willing our lives. And rapture, an essential feeling, leads us outward to be more truly ‘there’. Heidegger thus interprets Nietzsche’s “will to power:” A strong, full-bodied interest & movement towards the world, before us as a possibility but not always chosen. Poignantly, Heidegger (1961) names a “fallen” state: “Of someone who is intoxicated...he [sic] 'has' something like rapture. But his is not enraptured. The rapture of intoxication [does not raise one] beyond himself. What we are here calling rapture is merely...being 'soused,' something depriv[ing] us of every possible state of being."
