As a psychologist, my job is to help my patients (adults, children, couples, and families) identify problematic patterns, understand formative relationships, and develop self understanding. Therapy can help children/teens learn how to express themselves and develop positive coping skills. The greatest predictor of success in therapy is the therapist-patient relationship and finding a therapist with whom you feel understood and can explore painful issues is crucial. My goal is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space where we can explore the past and create a new future. I am bilingual-bicultural in Spanish and English.
What do you want to see better or different in your life? This is where I love to start sessions with clients because you are the expert on being you, and I want to assist you in achieving your goals, whatever they may be. I am trained in a number of different modalities in order to provide a therapeutic process that is unique to each client.
"She hears me, she gets me, she helped me." Life and relationships can be both fulfilling and also full of stress. My intention is to offer a respectful, safe therapy experience that will help you find yourself, your answers, insights and your voice in your world.

Therapy is an active effort to understand and learn a new way, a healthy way so that you can experience yourself, your relationships and your life with less pain and confusion. I have deep respect for those that take the courageous step to enter the "School for the Self" and rejoice in the accomplishments.

The questions of who am I, where am I going and what does it all mean can produce many challenges for each of us. I try to see the world through the eyes of the clients I work with to develop an action plan to identify goals, solutions and adjustments to help guide the transition of change. I help client’s in a collaborative approach to develop an understanding of self-empowerment and self-efficacy to form a foundation from which to grow.

Searching for the right therapist is an important step in an individual's growth and transformation process. Often, my clients initially arrive in my office exhausted from "doing it alone" or "toughing it out". From our very first session, I support my clients and commit to traveling with them on their Life's journey. Together we will gently peel back the layers of anxious struggle, dysfunctional behaviors, and pain. We seek the roots of these problems and focus our treatment on healing what lies beneath them. As healing happens, I mentor my clients to reclaim areas of their life that have been lost.
Life is hard. Sometimes it feels like we're unable to deal with the challenges thrown our way. As a result, we might feel anxious, depressed, or experience relationship issues. In therapy, my goal is to help you improve your communication style, increase your self-esteem, and expand your mind to healthier ways of thinking. I will listen to you without judgment and provide different treatment interventions that best fit your needs. Therapy can be enriching and life changing if you allow yourself to take the first step.
I believe in the value of the therapeutic relationship. I respect the uniqueness of each client’s experience and history as well as the diversity and story that each individual brings. It is my goal to eliminate the stigma associated with mental health, and provide an environment that feels safe and easily accessible. I am an advocate for the use of preventative mental health and wellness strategies in treatment and passionate about remedying the effect of childhood trauma, as well as establishing a culture of resilience, equality, and connectedness. I help clients to accept complexity, abandon shame, and find self compassion.
