Are you experiencing difficulties in your life related to anxiety, depression, communication with your partner, or the long-term impact of trauma? I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor with over 13 of experience helping Children, Couples, and Families. I have extensive expertise in treating traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, oppositional behaviors, relational issues, and couples issues. My demeanor is calm and kind, providing a uniquely safe and thoughtful environment for you to experience healing.

I am passionate about helping you heal and grow using the best resources available. To do this I focus on using evidence-based treatments that have been shown to be effective at reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression, improving behaviors, and enhancing communication between couples and families.

I strongly believe in giving you tools to heal beyond sessions, and will often point you to resources to aid in your healing such as readings, activities, medical consultations, spiritual discovery, community resources, etc. Whether you are looking for help for yourself, or a loved one, I would be honored to work with you.

¿Está teniendo dificultades en su vida relacionado a ansiedad, depresión, comunicación con su pareja, el impacto a largo plazo del trauma, o con la crianza de sus hijos? Soy un Consejero Profesional con más de 11 años de experiencia ayudando a individuos, parejas, niños y familias. Tengo amplia experiencia en el tratamiento de estrés traumático, ansiedad, depresión, y problemas de pareja. Mi comportamiento es tranquilo y amable, brindando un entorno seguro para que pueda sanar.

Me apasiona ayudarlo a sanar y crecer utilizando los mejores recursos disponibles. Para hacer esto me enfoco en el uso de tratamientos basados en la evidencia que han demostrado ser efectivos para reducir los síntomas de ansiedad y depresión, mejorar los comportamientos y mejorar la comunicación entre las parejas y las familias.

Creo firmemente en darle herramientas para sanar más allá de las sesiones y, a menudo, le indicaré recursos que le ayudarán en su curación, como lecturas, actividades, consultas médicas, descubrimiento espiritual, recursos comunitarios, etc. Ya sea que esté buscando ayuda por sí mismo, o un ser querido, me sentiría honrado trabajar con usted.
