Growing up, mental health is not something I heard of or talked about often. Being raised Mexican for me meant that the chances of having a conversation about mental health was not likely, much less learning how to express my emotions and stress in healthy ways. The older I get, the more I learn, the more people I meet--the more I strive to help bring mental health awareness and education to not only the Latinx community but to anyone willing and ready to learn.

I work hard to understand, diagnose and frame what the issues really are, and work gently and intelligently with my clients to help them grow into their own abilities to change the status quo and “see” what is possible for them. This is not magic -- it’s work. But hard work and a commitment by both of us to a trusting and open therapeutic relationship can produce what seems like magical outcomes. In my view, that can only happen in a place of safety and hope. I strive every day to create an atmosphere of both so that true healing and real change can actually be achieved.

Experiencing unexplained sources of anxiety can be really scary. Whether you’re an overwhelmed parent of a teen or child, or a young adult struggling with sexual identity exploration within a religious context, or simply feeling like it’s the right time to ask for help, I may be the right fit for you. Not understanding our own behaviors and feelings can be frustrating. Maybe you are having emotional bursts of anxiety that feel like an “overreaction”. Perhaps you have a sense that your past experiences have something to do with your unstable or depressed emotional state, but you are unsure and terrified of where you might begin.

It's hard to be our best when we aren't feeling the best - especially emotionally. This is even more true with children and adolescents because they don't always have the coping skills they need to work through difficult situations. As a therapist, I work with your child/teen to understand what made difficult moments so hard and teach them new ways to deal with challenges. This helps to improve feelings of anxiety, low mood, and even changes behavior. My goal is to boost your child's and teen's skills so they can better work through future challenges. As a parent, I ask that you partner with me in making these changes.

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.
