I have taught expressive arts therapy (YWCA Counseling Center), grief counseling (JFK University), Pastoral Care (Holmes Institute), lead support groups for adult children of aging parents, for women diagnosed with cancers and long-term illnesses, for teens questioning everything.
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’.”

Working from a more holistic approach to therapy, integrating both somatic and transpersonal facets to our conscious experience of life, I assist clients, through mindfulness, meditation, dreams and expressive arts to access, trust and develop strengths, attributes and resources to cope with anxiety, depression, body dysphoria, pain, grief and loss .
I choose to see life's challenges as invitations to know ourselves more honestly, and to accept ourselves as we are. I believe that when individuals are self-aware they experience life as more meaningful and challenges as less distressing. I help individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, life transitions and relationship issues, to embrace their wholeness and strengthen inner resources not yet recognized. From this place of knowing and alternate or adjusted perspective, individuals develop compassion for self and other, gain confidence in relationships, and feel more assured in their ability to address the challenges life presents.

You do not have to go through life challenges alone. People come to see me for a number of reasons. Maybe you are seeking help for anxiety or depression or maybe you are going through a difficult event, like the death of a loved one, a break-up, or health issues. Maybe you hope to have healthier and more satisfying relationships. Maybe you are haunted by experiences stemming from childhood or the more recent past. We all are seeking a better life, a pathway to some change, and a greater sense of peace or confidence. Therapy is a great place to work toward these goals.

I think therapy is always a good idea. Crisis, however, is often what leads us into therapy, and I believe that it is a call and an opportunity to look deeply, not only into our "problems" but, into ourselves. My approach is non-pathologizing, relational, and grounded in Jungian theory. I work with a variety of concerns with a special interest in spirituality, identity discovery, developmental and transitional adjustments, grief , loss , depression, chronic and palliative illness. I believe that every person has an innate capacity for healing and I am interested in helping people find theirs.

What season of your personal and/or love life are you in?

Unresolved or unaddressed grief and conflict can rob us of the ability to live life fully. Have you experienced disconnection in your relationship, breakup, divorce, loss of a loved one, health decline/medical issues, aging; or change associated with a move, new job, or COVID that is causing stress, anxiety, or depression? I can help you find inner peace while weathering the storm.

Sometimes circumstances in life can feel unbearable and we do not know how we are going to get through it. Experiencing trauma, a pandemic, racism, grief & loss (marriage, death of partner, child, loved one, terminal illness, break ups, loss of job, etc.), pressures of work and/or school are some issues that make us feel anxious, alone, and depressed. Our need for inner peace and healthy coping is crucial for our mental, spiritual, and physical health! Overcoming the overwhelming feelings of anxiety, depression, and anger can feel empowering and peaceful which leads to a better quality of life!

I also have experience and appreciate supporting those with Anxiety- Depression-Stress-Relationship Issues- Grief / Loss -Work Conflicts-Crisis Intervention.
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.

These various forms of depression may result from clients struggling with mental health, substance abuse, grief and loss , sexual assault, and trauma.
Life is a challenge and may be overwhelming at times for you as you are suffering from depression. Even the brave step in finding emotional support through therapy may be difficult to initiate for some people. My goal is to assist clients in helping them understand that there is a process of recovery of depression and to raise their awareness that they are not alone.

I work with issues such as childhood trauma, codependency, parenting, boundary issues, grief and loss , and couples and family issues.
By considering a therapist, you are taking a step towards improving your life, examining what needs to be changed and building upon what is already working. Life can get better and you have the power to change it. During difficult times, it is important to either develop healthy support systems or utilize the ones that we already have. Seeking therapy is one piece of a healthy support system. You are acknowledging that some aspects of your life may not be going well and need to be changed. Therapy can help you to put life in perspective.

I am a psychotherapist providing individual therapy services to adults. Many of clients who come to me are experiencing feelings of grief , sadness, anxiety, confusion about an area of their life, or difficulty in intimate or familial relationships. I also specialize in working with adults who are impacted by trauma. In my work I understand trauma as how we are impacted by the painful experiences in our lives and the ways in which those experiences shape the way we form relationships with others, with ourselves, and the degree to which we are able to find joy.

I enjoy working with people of all backgrounds and I specialize in: depression, anxiety, trauma, grief / loss , and relational difficulties.
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.

If you or your child is struggling with depression, social relationships or having trouble coping with other difficulties life has thrown at you it is time to ask for help. You can get comfort and learn the skills to cope with anxiety, grief , social fears etc. Talking to a therapist can be the first step towards a more joyful and satisfying life. I work with children, teens, and adults, couples, and families. Child therapy sessions involve play therapy and the use of creative art materials. Sometimes just having someone to listen can make all the difference.

My experience is rooted in working with childhood trauma, attachment, depression, anxiety, grief (of a loved one, a transition, a diagnosis) and traumas of all shapes, sizes, and colors.
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.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
