About

Thank you for viewing my page. I've been a therapist and clinical supervisor for over a decade; I know how to help, and I have the experience. I work with engineers, tech, and business professionals to help them express and process hard emotions in a supportive, non-intimidating way. I'm married to an engineer, and I know the pressures. I specialize in working with successful, high achieving women and men struggling with depression, anxiety, and relationship or work concerns. If you're a therapist yourself and struggling with compassion fatigue, burn out and stress, I speak your language, and I've been there.
I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) speaking psychologist with over 15 years of practice. I've worked with people across the lifespan from kids to older adults, college students adjusting to adult life, and high-stress, high performing individuals in Silicon Valley. I work with therapists, healthcare, and business/tech/engineering professionals.
Therapy doesn't have to be strange, awkward, or intimidating. I commit to collaborating with you on what we should focus on, and my opinions are offered in a respectful way. I know what works and what doesn't; training future psychologists has made me better at what I do. I offer evidenced based interventions based on your unique situation.
