Our journey towards personal growth can be challenging and sometimes overwhelming to manage on our own. We all have our "stuff" that we work through but often need guidance and support to achieve the growth that we need. It is my honor to walk this growth journey with you, utilizing evidence-based modalities to provide the tools needed to progress on your journey. I have engaged in therapeutic work in a variety of settings that include trauma, grief, domestic violence, substance use, anxiety, and depression.

Seeking therapy is not an easy decision to make. I am a warm, empathetic, and culturally sensitive therapist with experience in working with children, adolescents, and adults. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where individuals can feel comfortable exploring the reasons that have led them to seek therapy. Feeling connected and understood is crucial when working collaboratively with a therapist to help identify personal issues and moving towards a better self, marriage, or family life and improving overall functioning.

My ideal client would be a 21 year old woman who is of Puerto Rican descent, and does not know how to navigate identifying within the LGBTQ community. She was raised in a religious household, and thinks her relationship with her family would be ruined if she was to come out. However, the client does not want to live a lie, but has been feeling sad with the idea of her family disowning her. The client wants to find a way to be comfortable in identifying as a gay woman, and wants to find a way to communicate her sexuality with her family.

I believe that change is a process that begins with the way one thinks about things. We all experience times of darkness and deep sorrow. We experience anxiety and also struggle with life transitions. Healing comes when we take the time to share our stories, connect with our feelings, and explore our experiences. As you consider therapy, know that feelings of sadness, anxiety, shame, guilt, confusion, and longing are experienced by everyone. Processing what is troubling you can bring you a sense of relief and balance. Self awareness can add purpose to your life.

What excites me the most as a therapist is helping clients recognize that they have more control over their lives than they may realize.

I promote developing positive self-esteem and the confidence needed to feel empowered to deal with unexpected and difficult life challenges. My focus in therapy is to help you identify your needs and wants, utilize effective communication skills, and develop healthy boundaries within your relationships.

Sometimes we are feeling off balance... Sometimes we are confused if what we are doing or feeling is "normal"... Sometimes we just know we need a little help to get on the track we want to be on. I want to give you the tools to help you with Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Change, Anger, DV or Loss. After a loss our worlds can feel very confusing and sometimes scary. The advice we get from our close friends and family can be unhelpful in the moment. Sometimes it helps to talk to someone that can help normalize and guide you. Whether your loss was a week ago or years ago, we all can use support in grief.
