I work with individuals and couples exploring both the past and present.
So many of us have trouble making decisions or deepening relationships, because we learned to connect with others needs above our own. While this was highly adaptive, and even necessary in the past, it can lead to a sense of disconnection and restlessness. Relationally this may manifest as disappointment or unexpressed conflict, due to an engrained pattern of avoidance. In this state, it is difficult to know what actions to take towards change. Reaching out for help, though imperative, can be just as challenging as continuing in the pain. This is what causes most of my clients to reach out.

Depending on my assessment of you are, and what will serve your needs best, I may suggest a number of approaches including individual psychotherapy, couples therapy, hypnosis, meditation, group therapy, or combinations of all of these.
As a clinical psychologist trained in intensive psychotherapy and counseling, I focus primarily on you as a person, not on your disorder or illness. Even if the reason you seek treatment is depression, anxiety, relationship issues or addictive behaviors, that is not who you are- it is only the form that your problems take. In our therapy work together we will need to understand who you are fundamentally - your unique strengths, issues, and needs. Our shared understanding of your complexities will then tell us precisely what approach to take to healing your problems.

I am welcoming of individuals, couples , and families from all backgrounds.
You just want to get through the day without thinking about the bad, stop overthinking, or feeling overwhelmed. Wondering what it takes to feel motivated again or not feel alone even when you are in a room full of people. Perhaps something is missing in your relationships or feeling you have imposter syndrome in your career. You just want to get through the day without feeling paralyzed or having fear about the future. It may feel so difficult to get back to the excitement you once had.

In addition to working with young children, adolescents, young adults, and adults, I work with families in many ways: mothers with infants and toddlers, family therapy, and couples therapy.
People seek therapy when they are unhappy with how they are feeling or functioning. Sometimes you can identify the experiences connected to your suffering. Other times, the reasons for suffering are more elusive, but the associated symptoms (depression, anxiety, unfulfilling relationships, for example) are nevertheless extremely distressing. In both cases, talking to understand the deeper reasons for suffering can help. The self-awareness you discover this way is the most powerful tool to create a more fulfilling life. It can take time to build the trust required to talk and think in a freer way.

In  Couples Therapy, I have Completed Level 1 Gottman Method Training, and also implement Emotion-Focused Therapy.
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.

My professional and personal experience makes me uniquely qualified to help bilingual couples and families, recent immigrants as well as foreign professionals and students to cope with multi-cultural and adjustment issues, immigration and acculturation stress, emotional disturbances and identity problems.
As children, we are learning from interactions with our parents who we are and how to fit into the world around us. After we leave home, we become our own parents as we continue to learn about ourselves and how to find our own place in life. And when we have families of our own, we are now parents both for our children and for ourselves, as we continue to understand more about who we are. I provide a warm, empathic and accepting environment where you can explore your current life challenges, as well as address past issues that impact your everyday life.
