Becoming vulnerable is the beginning of healing and creation of positive change. Some individuals will experience periods of depression, anxiety, stress, poor self image and negative coping at some time in their lives. I work closely with clients afflicted by depression, anxiety, phobias, childhood trauma and many other areas. As a therapist, I will work closely with you to find your inner resiliency and great strength. We will formulate goals and action plans to reverse the negative self talk and begin a journey of empowerment. We will build a great therapeutic relationship together. I am a bilingual Spanish/English.

I am an eclectic practitioner, clients need to be meet where they are. My therapeutic approach includes not only Cognitive Behavioral Therapy but also a humanistic approach. I hold the belief that we as humans want and need to strive towards reaching our full potential.

I invite you to become vulnerable and start the healing process. Together we can bring about positive change. “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” ― Carl R. Rogers
