I treat marriage and family relationship problems as well as individuals suffering from trauma, anxiety, depression, and work with women dealing with pregnancy, prenatal, postpartum issues.
Do you ever feel as though you’re struggling to stay afloat and can’t catch your breath? What rivers and seas do you need to cross in order to begin your healing? In therapy we work together to give you the tools you need to navigate life’s difficult moments. If you find yourself having trouble in work, school, relationships, marriage, faith, or resurfacing trauma from the past, it is ok to seek help through the process. You do not have to go through the waters alone. I have worked with countless individuals from different walks of life and a wide array of concerns.

As a Hispanic woman , it is a passion of mine to empower those who identify as a minority.
Discovering yourself can be a frightening journey for many individuals, but it is not a journey that you have to complete alone. For those looking to build their inner strength, increase their feelings of empowerment, implement boundaries and assert themselves in their life and relationships look no further. I realize that beginning therapy can be frightening especially for those who are the first in their family to do so. My approach as a therapist is to provide you with a safe and compassionate environment for you to explore and uncover. Together we can devise an action plan to assist you in becoming the person you wish to be.

Life can be more challenging than we expect which is why it's my passion to support clients in need of clarity, guidance, and hope. I help students/young adults wrestling with the anxiety that comes with major life transitions. I support working professionals in learning how to manage stress and burnout. I provide a space for women to explore their worries and develop more healthy relationships . As a multi-ethnic woman , I understand the tension of balancing one's unique identity with their roles, responsibilities, and needs. I also value incorporating one's faith into exploring inner-conflicts as well as areas of growth and change

There are times when we need to explore some growth & healing work. Thankfully the ability to grow & heal is built into our human-nature, a nature that comes alive when receiving the support we need. Therapy is for receiving this support, and in a way that fits with you. And so I trust in this: Creating in your own expressive way a better life is what I know you are able—and meant—to do.

Mental health is an important part of our well-being, and yet often times gets pushed aside or ignored because we feel like we can get through it on our own; are too embarrassed or ashamed to talk about it; or don’t think anyone would understand. Recognizing that you need support and searching for help are the first important steps in your journey to well-being. My intent is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain and work toward your goals.

My ideal client is one who is motivated to work hard and reach their goals. My experience is primarily with children and teens struggling with anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues, and so although young people don't always know why they feel a certain type of way, being able to identify that something is wrong, and a desire to get help is key to a positive experience in therapy. I find that therapy works best when we are all on the same page, and that clients see the best results when they can hold themselves accountable and do the work outside the therapy session, too!

What type of Santa Ana mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Santa Ana?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
