I work with adults, children (7+) and adolescents with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, stress and anger management.
There are times in everyone's life when you feel over-stressed, unhappy, uncomfortable, unfulfilled and unprepared to move forward. Too often, these feelings keep us from accomplishing our goals. I work with clients in a safe, confidential environment to assist them in developing the tools to work through the situations that contribute to the discomfort and frustration that they are dealing with and help them take the steps towards a more complete and satisfying life. I offer individual counseling, couples and pre-marital counseling, trauma and grief and specialize in working with depression, anxiety and anger.

I have, for 10+ years, worked with children as young as 10 years old and have worked with clients as old as 90 years old.
The ideal client is one that struggles and is actively seeking help. A healthy balance with goals in regards to work/leisure and family/friends is going to be what every person needs. I promote originality and customization for each client because everyone is different. Love, guidance, and acceptance are what we sometimes loose or neglect and all we need is a professional to help.

The life of the mind is challenging and complicated, but it should not be an impossible nightmare. The daily struggles we face, relationships, inner self, tasks, education et cetera are real. Those things can weigh one down, but they should not be able to crush. Therapy is not magic, it is not a promise of a life free of challenges. However, it is a promise of companionship. It is the offer to walk with you through those dark, shameful, and sometimes forgotten places in your mind and soul. it is the process of persuading you to change direction. It is the skill needed to gently guide and focus. So, let’s talk.

Waitlist for new clients
Hello, I am open and taking new clients! As a person of Hispanic descent and being a 1st generation Mexican-American, I grew up with a stigmatized view of mental health issues and therapy. I heard my family talk a lot about working hard and pushing past traumatic experiences. Most of the time, “pushing past these experiences” meant simply dismissing them— ignoring them. But I began noticing the emotional toll that dismissing difficult experiences had taken in the lives of my family members. I realized that this idea of “working hard” and pushing past traumatic experiences simply doesn’t work to provide growth or healing.

I believe that therapy is a gift that we give ourselves, and that it is a healing journey. It is an opportunity to explore the barriers in our lives that keep us from fully expressing our thoughts and feelings, in relationships, and in the world. Our work in therapy results in the ability to live a fuller, richer, and more authentic life. As a therapist, I see myself as a guide on your healing journey. My guidance comes from a grounded place of clinical theory, spirituality, compassion, empathy and caring, but it also includes the strength and honesty that is needed to confront those issues that block personal growth. Through the safety of our therapeutic relationship, you will be free to speak of the current struggles in your life, as well as explore the connection to your history. I will be there as a source of truth, hope, and support, while witnessing the full spectrum of your journey, whether it includes confusion, pain, shame, sadness, and anger or joy, happiness, clarity and serenity. Through this process, you will discover the awareness, skills and behaviors to change your life, for now and the future.

In a word, my approach to therapy is relational. I am at my best when I am centered, curious and genuinely engaged in my client's experience... exploring, nuancing and understanding their unique perspective and the struggles they are facing. I believe in the importance of finding the right "fit" between client and therapist and it is for that reason that I strive to be authentic and fully engaged in every session. My training, areas of specialization and personal style are well suited for those who might be seeking to go deeper in their understanding of themselves and their relationships.
