I love working with Latinas living in South Florida who are struggling to cope with with major life transitions. Perhaps you may be new to the U.S. and are having a hard time adjusting to a new life, facing the challenges of adapting to a new culture. Or you are going through life changes such as menopause, divorce, parenting teenagers, or are facing the challenges of being an empty nester, grieving your role as a mother, and trying to figure out your new purpose and identity. Going through all these complex processes and changes can lead you to develop symptoms of anxiety and depression robbing you from your ability to feel joy.

If you've said many times, over many years "I can't keep living like this. Something has to change," then now is the time to make that change. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and stuck, anxious and worried, curious about or ready to quit drinking/using, overly critical of yourself and others, sick of putting others before you, paralyzed by perfectionism, and losing yourself while people-pleasing the world, then notice the voice inside saying, "Now is the time.” The courage -is- inside you to make that call or send that email to start making changes now. If you answer "yes" to any of these, reach out below to get help.

Are you feeling frustrated, stuck, or unhappy in your work life or relationships? Is there a deep loneliness with no one to talk to or really understand? Psychotherapy can help and heal. With over 30 years experience, I work by creating a safe, nurturing and understanding therapeutic relationship. My approach is to actively listen and work collaboratively on gaining a deeper understanding of the feelings, internal struggles, obstacles, the impact of earlier life experiences, as well as repeating patterns of behavior that may be underlying symptoms and the root cause of difficulties.
Does feeling guilt, shame, and unworthiness take up all your free time and you feel you can’t stop these thoughts? You are not alone. I understand how difficult this makes life for you- from difficulty concentrating, low energy, avoiding interactions with others, to issues with intimacy in dating/relationships and feeling like you don't fit in. With me, you will learn to identify unhealthy thoughts, habits, and patterns to safely challenge and replace those negative thoughts. You will experience relief from being your own worst critic, improved comfort in socializing with others and feel better about yourself overall.

Welcome and thank you for your interest in my practice. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the primary goal of developing collaborative relationships with my clients to tackle complex problems and stressors. I join with clients to do some practical problem-solving, build emotional skills and resilience, and gain insight into relationships and events, both past and present. I integrate my sense of humor into sessions, and do not shy away from challenging clients to safely take emotional risks, always with the goal of improving their daily lives and relationships.
My aim in individual and couple therapy is to help you with your life challenges - whether it is with anxity, depression, self-esteem, conflictual and/or less than satisfactory relationships and intimacies, understanding and overcoming the limiting, even crippling, effects of early life traumas on your life at present. I believe that the safety of a confidential therapeutic environment is ideal for us to explore problems together and find ways to move forward to a more rewarding and satisfying life.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS: After two years in the pandemic, I am seeing common themes of boredom, feeling unsafe, issues with new or old relationships, and uncertainty about the future. Are you re-thinking your life goals, or trying to balance your life? Or perhaps you are in a transition period and trying to move from simply surviving to flourishing.
As a Latino Queer Therapist, I have learned that understanding the intersections of my identities and how I show up in multiple spaces has been imperative to my personal growth and my understanding of belonging. Growing up, I always felt othered and often times unwanted. Therapy for me is about learning to understand our inner dialogues, validate our emotional experiences, and effect change in a way that is consistent with our desired narrative.
Using the powerful tools of EMDR and Brainspotting to directly heal the nervous system and create new neural pathways in the brain, I will guide you from feeling stuck in old patterns to change with confidence and expansiveness. Together, we can free you from old traumas and habits to move past the past with renewed strength, real growth, and authenticity. It is possible to gain resilience and transform your life to live in the present moment and create meaningful relationships.
In life, work, and relationships, do you ever find yourself feeling as if something is missing? Sitting with such a feeling is difficult, and, in our work together, I will use a blend of honesty and compassion to explore those feelings with you. My approach is warm, engaging, direct, and depth-oriented. As a therapist, I want to meet you where you are and to know you and how you think about yourself in the world. We will create a space to collaboratively discover how certain beliefs may be misperceptions or adding to the sense of limitation that you feel.
I’ve learned to assist clients in; the reduction of mental health symptomatology, the development of cognitive and emotional skills, and the education of clients, family, caregivers, and significant others to facilitate coping skills related to presenting need.
I'll work to help you better understand your inner experience, to act more effectively, and to treat yourself kindly. I will support you as you build the skills needed to meet current challenges, or as you go about reducing impulsive or avoidant trends. Because turning against oneself after not performing well compounds one's emotional burden, it is important to learn to replace self-condemnation with a self-affirming stance. I can assist you in acquiring the know-how and power to move steadily toward these goals. The reward for making progress internally or behaviorally is greater self-control and an increase in self-esteem.
