About

I have been intrigued by the human mind and how it works since my early teenage years. I had many issues as a teenager and the way my parents were not addressing my emotional needs. I'm thankful I met a social worker that was able to help me and my family. I am passionate about empowering individuals and reenergizing the human spirit. My specialties include, but are not limited to Anxiety – Substance abuse – Anger management – Self-esteem Issues – Life Transitions – And trauma. I work collaboratively with you to find strategies that help you meet your needs. I work well with couples; with ACA & generational trauma
I am working with adult individuals and couples in Spanish and English speaking. My work focuses on increasing self-esteem, managing anxiety, improving your relationships, and discovering blocks that hinder your creativity and fulfillment in your life. I use a variety of techniques from Personal Coaching, Psychodynamic, and cognitive therapy.
I understand how difficult it is right now with not only pandemic issues but trying to juggle relationships, work, and health issues.Throughout our sessions, we can work together into finding ways to address the challenges you are encountering. The isolation of the pandemic brought up anxiety and intensified other emotional issues. You are not alone!
