I work through an attachment-based and trauma-informed framework - specifically, through the clinical models of Internal Family Systems (IFS) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).
I work with clients who struggle with: unresolved emotional injury, trauma, self-worth, relational problems, mood/emotional problems, addictions, compulsive behaviors, and spiritual issues. I also work with members of the clergy (pastors, missionaries, ministry leaders) who struggle with deep personal issues but lack a safe, nurturing space in which they may experience support and healing. My clients all seek and deserve healing in their lives and relationships.

In childhood, our outside shapes the inside, and in adulthood the inside shapes the outside. -Chip Judd I believe that who we are today is shaped by the experiences and relationships we had growing up. Through relationships we can become aware of our own strengths as well as our brokenness from past hurts, hiccups, and hang ups and discover that a part of us yearns to be heard, revealed, and healed.

Life can be hard, whether dealing with unexpected setbacks, longstanding problems, or just working hard to build a life of purpose and meaning. Some clients are dealing with stress, grief, and loss. Some clients are stressed by balancing a life that could best be described as “All Good Things, Just Too Many.” I believe our work is about more than treating dis-ease. It is about living fully, with ease, vitality, and wellness. Sometimes this starts with learning to deal with hard thoughts and feelings that can get in the way. It always involves getting clear about who you want to be and what matters most.

I help people experiencing low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, grief, indecision/stuckness/failure to launch, and crisis--including victims of trauma or complex trauma due to bullying, discrimination, narcissistic abuse--safely find the roots of these feelings, process them, and transition to resilience, personal growth and fulfilment. I help couples connect with themselves, their values and intentions, communicate authentically & safely and either experience the peace, happiness, and satisfaction they once knew and more, or recognize the truth that it is not meant to be, part on the best terms possible and begin new lives.

I believe that the connection between client and therapist is important. Each individual is unique. I take time to connect with you, and then draw from multiple research-backed approaches to address your needs and goals. I have extensive experience working with overwhelm and stress, as well as PTSD, with adults, and with children and families. Because of this, I work well with individuals, couples and families who are working with defenses, automatic reactions, and behavior that negatively impacts their current relationships. I feel honored to work with individuals and families in what I consider to be sacred work.

I am an LMFT, mother of two, first generation college graduate, Senior Leader at a community-based MHO and coffee enthusiast. I was raised by a single mother and an army of strong Latinas, along with the opinions and judgments of a traditional Mexican household. I've had my share of generational trauma and the struggles that come with navigating a culture you are being measured against that clashes with the one you are being raised in. I am not new to being 'the first' and find that this has become somewhat of a superpower and motivating force in my life.

Does life feel way too hard right now? At times, our self-esteem can feel like it is in the trash. We can struggle to find meaning and a sense of direction in life. Our challenges can be pools of resources to learn and grow by. It's possible to cut out the unnecessary suffering and have more time and energy for what we want in life, by regulating our emotions and defining our values. Through art and talk therapy, you can learn to understand and appreciate yourself more, and adjust your attitudes and actions to be most useful for you.

I am a psychotherapist seeing adults and teens for individual therapy. Various needs and issues bring clients in, including feelings of loneliness or stuckness, sadness, relationship distress, anxiety, or challenges in the way they see and relate to themselves. They seek more meaning in their life, in their relationships, and in their actions. They are looking for a change in their life that they may not be able to articulate just yet. Though perhaps unclear to start, they are looking for an evolution of the heart, mind, and soul.

It takes courage to reach out for support. Often people reach out when their usual strategies to manage their life fail, and they feel stuck. Are you feeling like you can't think or talk your way out of your unhappiness? The role of the therapist is as a facilitator or guide to help you identify the patterns that are no longer working for you, and develop strategies to heal and change. I will work with you to develop a plan in therapy that meets your individual needs and goals. My style is to give a combination of compassion, honest feedback, non-judgment, humor, and warmth.

Writer John O'Donohue defines my view of being a therapist: "This is what therapy is about: helping people retrieve what has been lost to them, wakening and bringing home their fundamental wholesomeness.. Therapists are like poets: they draw on the power of words in the profoundly creative work of bringing people fully alive to themselves, awakening in them the human capacity for divine imagination that ‘dreams our completion’.”

Therapy can initially be intimidating and unfamiliar, which is why I aim to create a safe space for my clients to express their emotions, experiences, and challenges. I believe a non-judgmental environment and a trusting relationship are fundamental in fostering the therapeutic alliance. In the therapy process, I invite my clients to engage in exploration to help them gain insight into their patterns of behavior. My approach encourages self-empowerment by allowing clients to be active participants in the change process and ultimately reach the personal growth they desire.

You might be seeking help because you feel stuck in your relationships, with your family or with your child. The stories of our lives are powerful and can shape our reality. You might be holding stories and pain about yourself, your family, the world, or your child that are interfering with a present focus and ability to face current challenges. Together we can champion your innate healing capacity in a safe, emphatic, and attached, therapeutic relationship. Therapeutic support can help you recover your true sense of self as an individual or a parent, can heal family wounds, and help you find a renewed zest for life.

I believe children and teens can learn, grow, and thrive when they have coping skills, feel empowered, and practice self-care. My goal is to encourage youth to learn who they are and how to advocate for their unique needs. I specialize in working with neurodiverse, gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) youth and their families. I encourage youth to use their strengths and interests in order to grow, heal, and cope. Building self-awareness, such as understanding their own sensory processing and asynchronous development, is an important part of my work with youth.
