Over the years, I’ve been trained in a number of therapeutic approaches but whether it’s cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, communication skills/problem-solving, family systems/work systems, hypnosis or mindfulness, I believe that the most important part of coaching and counseling is making sure that whatever approach is used, it fits the needs of the individual, couple or family. Each person is different; his/her life experiences create a unique story. It’s important for me to understand that story, get to know my clients and, make sure that whatever approach I use; it fits that person.

Whether you're experiencing depression, anxiety, trouble in family life or close relationships, know that you're not alone. Life's troubles don't have to be permanent and change is possible. These struggles can be overwhelming and keep us from accessing our inner strength and power. My approach to the therapeutic process is grounded in the connectedness I build with my clients. It is based on my client's needs and in my capacity for genuineness, acceptance, caring, and deep understanding of your unique life experience.

"Find stability, recovery and growth during life's challenges." The idea of 'going to therapy' evokes a variety of reactions. While some may be eager to see what therapy is all about and are ready for a journey of self-exploration, I tend to see people because they are struggling, they are in pain, they are grieving, feel misunderstood or are desperate for something to change. Demands are high in fast-paced Silicon Valley. Your struggles may be unseen by others--you may not know who to talk to about deeply felt concerns. I invite you into my practice.

Relationships and the Quality of your Life will not just improve on their own. People continue doing the same things and, interestingly, expect different results. Just look around and see how many people are really unhappy in their lives, have given up on their dreams, and have settled for a routine day by day existence. You need effective solutions that are actually DIFFERENT than anything you have ever tried. For about 19 years, I have successfully helped hundreds of my consultees to improve the quality of their lives and relationships, achieve their goals and happily live their Dream Lives.

MINDFULNESS, BALANCE, GROWTH, AND EMPOWERMENT. It is possible to achieve a higher level of inner peace and reduce unnecessary suffering. We all can "lose our way" at times and find ourselves in situations that are difficult and painful. I believe that these crises can hold within them tremendous opportunities for growth and strengthening. Although most enter therapy during a crisis, the therapeutic process need not also feel painful or traumatizing. I will create a safe and validating therapeutic environment in which to transform personal suffering into strength and wisdom. We will collaborate to establish clarity and direction in our therapy.

Are you have been considering therapy, but not sure how to decide on a therapist? If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, grief or feel like you are just going through the motions, therapy can help. Perhaps you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed. Perhaps you feel like no one really understands and wish you had someone to talk to? Whatever you’re going through, you don’t have to figure it out on your own. Sometimes there are obstacles such as unresolved issues from the past, self-limiting beliefs, and negative relationship patterns that are holding you back, and this can be addressed in therapy.

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.

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.
