You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

There is no "perfect" approach to making change, addressing life challenges, or reducing symptoms. My approach is intentionally eclectic and integrative, allowing for your unique strengths and struggles to guide our work. At the heart of my practice, is a strong appreciation for the importance of developing a safe, trusting, and collaborative therapeutic relationship. I will listen without judgment, offer feedback based on my knowledge and observations, and together, help formulate attainable goals for our work.

Do you often find yourself stuck in your head? Too caught up in thinking about the past or the "what ifs" of the future? You feel like you've been trying to hold it together, but it's all becoming too much. You feel like you are doing things wrong, you feel anxious, lonely, or just stuck in a rut. You scroll past other people's lives on social media and it seems like they are coping with everything better than you. Maybe that glass or two of wine or the marijuana that helped you unwind or relax are no longer feeling like solutions, but something you might need to change. It's time to look at what is getting in the way!

My ideal clients are women who want to be active in their own recovery process, even if they are right now in a "stuck place". They may be struggling with depression and/or anxiety and often both; transitions including new motherhood and chronic stress are common. They are motivated for change, have a sense of humor, and are open to trying new ideas and new ways of working with their struggles. This may mean seeing the entire self as the mindbody-one affecting the other in continuum, as opposed to having a mind, and then having a body as two separate things. Personal growth and development are important goals for the clients I see.

Are you experiencing a transition in your life--in a relationship, career, education, or life stage such as early adulthood or midlife? Are you overwhelmed and uncertain, feeling depressed, anxious, grief-stricken, resentful, conflicted, or confused? Change of all types stirs up unsettling feelings, including unresolved issues, memories and traumas. You might feel like you're always in "crisis-mode." When your feelings overwhelm you, they cloud your judgment and vision. Rather than being at their mercy, you can learn to allow your feelings to guide you, no matter how difficult the challenges you face.

Please note I am not accepting clients at this time. It takes a lot of courage to enter into therapy as it means acknowledging that something isn't working in your life. Everyone who comes into therapy is a unique individual whose problems are different eventhough they may fall under the same category,e.g."depressed." Sometimes people enter into therapy with specific problems while for others there is a need to understand old, negative patterns of behaviors.

**July 2020: I am not currently accepting new clients.** My calling is to bring the best out of others, no matter if their best feels shrouded, and no matter how difficult the challenges. In my experience, there are limits to what can be achieved by banging your head against the wall with logic, technique and coping skills (though they have their place and I absolutely use them as needed). I help people learn to work with emotions and get to the core for lasting change, which is accomplished by creating the safe and secure environment critical for deeper insights and healing that endures.

How you see yourself plays a key role in how you interact with the world and others. If you feel at odds or disconnected with our inner self you could feel overwhelmed and distressed in relationships, work, family and other areas of your life. Life transitions, grief, loss and trauma can all contribute to the overwhelm and sense of disconnection with "self" and others. I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) and Latina psychologist. My goal is to work with clients collaboratively, and help them build a renewed sense of trust, resiliency, and empowerment.

Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. As we navigate these, we are guided by our sense of identity, our past experiences, and the patterns we have learned. Often, however, these solutions do not serve us in the present and take the form of habits of mind and action which hold us back, shape our relationships, and create the illusion of false limitations; but there is hope. We are able to shape our lives through changing our patterns, the way we think and communicate, and the actions we learn to take. Through self understanding we may update our narrative and with it transform our realities.
