I work alongside my clients to create collaborative, warm, comfortable bonds as they navigate life challenges. My understanding of client's context and concerns is informed by my perspective and experiences as a former arts writer and academic, as well as my training in counseling. This multi-disciplinary approach to hearing client's stories enables me to engage the complexity of my clients' lives while focusing on them as full people. Working with people whose struggles with substances, stresses, and relationships compel them to seek external insight and support is an honor and joy.

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.

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.

Each person has a unique story. I find exploring and understanding the layers of each person I encounter to be deeply meaningful and gratifying work. As a therapist, I take an approach of empathic curiosity in order to help you move towards the change you are looking for. I believe that therapy is most effective in a nonjudgmental and trusting environment. I consider my approach to be collaborative, helping you to pinpoint what in your life you are looking to change. I offer a space to process your experience and deeper emotions, gain insight into your relationships, and address patterns in order to better understand yourself.

Loss is the universal human condition. At times, all of us move with a sense of "lostness" - be it around a death, a relationship, our sense of safety, hopes for the future. Yet as a culture, we have a hard time being with loss and accompanying grief. I believe that loss and grief deserve attention. You may know exactly why you are seeking therapy, or you may something may just feel off. My role is to help you learn about yourself and your losses. I hold special interest and skill supporting people with experiences of infertility/pregnancy loss, relationship loss, trauma, and death and dying.

Do your emotions feel overwhelming? Are you bored and restless with your life? Does the future seem hopeless? Many of us experience these feelings, yet often think we're the only ones. We worry that if we show people what’s really going on, they will avoid and judge us. In therapy, we give voice to these feelings, and learn that while they can be scary at times, they also reveal a path to healing and change.

In my practice, I provide individual therapy to adult survivors of trauma, grief and loss, including those navigating relationship loss, and general life adjustments. I stay curious with people who want to plant reparative seeds and explore what healing stories can grow from their hardships. I support those who want to re-author a life-story that centers new meaning-making, radical self-care, deliberate joy, and improved quality of life. While I specialize in the unique cultural experiences of Black women and women of color, my commitment to therapeutic care and wellness extends to all women, LGBTQ+ communities, and allies.
