People seek counseling for many reasons but one desire is common: to stop suffering. We will meet in a setting of mutual respect, human regard, and committed willingness to examine this discomfort; and whether or not it can be eliminated, alleviated, or ultimately accepted, the focus will always remain on finding ways for you to live a meaningful life.

You feel overwhelmed and overstimulated throughout the day. You are so much to everyone else that it often times is hard to remember who you are. You're constantly worried that something may happen to your baby or that you aren't doing enough as a mother. You knew motherhood would be hard but you didn't know the transition would come with so much anxiety or even depression. There are so many people around yet you feel alone in your experiences. You knew "adulting" would be different but you weren't expecting this much change in your relationships, your personality, or your goals.
Hope. I hear that so much in therapy. Is there hope? Will things get better? My answer is there will always be hope. Hope brought you to this website. Hope motivates us and with the help of a therapeutic alliance provides insight and a course foward. My goal is to teach you tools and provide a environment in which you feel secure in sharing your experiences.
Having issues in your relationship? Feeling overwhelmed by problems with addictions, depression, anxiety or trauma? I understand. In our therapy sessions, I will create a safe space for us to work on solutions to issues you or you and your partner may face. I have a reputation for being an excellent listener, and ability to provide support and feedback at your pace. I work with couples and individuals from diverse backgrounds and sexual orientations. I use a method called Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) for approaching you and your partner's relationship issues. Let's start a conversation.
I have specialized in working with individuals and couples who are interested in a deep, transformative experience that resolves core issues, not just symptoms. My work is unique compared to many other therapists because I go beyond a strictly cognitive approach. I use a holistic approach that includes Psychodynamic (childhood issues), Somatic (body-oriented), Couples Systems, Meditative (Mindful) practices, Life Coaching and HMR (Holographic Memory Resolution) Techniques. HMR is a leading edge mind-body therapy that allows expedient access to past memories and complete resolution of the painful emotions associated with these events without having to relive them.
I provide individual, couples, and family therapy to adults and elders. I have a strong belief that anyone can create a happy life for themselves, and I can help! I provide a safe and confidential setting to effectively investigate and help with anger, depression, drugs/alcohol, mood and anxiety disorders, personality disorders, relationships, grief/loss, stress management and PTSD. If you are feeling unfulfilled, empty, or just not happy with your life, let's begin the life-changing journey to happiness. I provide intensive, long term therapy for deep-seated issues as well as short term therapy for situational issues.
I enjoy working with individuals who are seeking to grow from their experiences, and develop a life that is fulfilling to them. I have over ten years of experience working with clients--adolescents, pre-teens, families, and young adults. I am passionate about working with individuals who have realized that their old ways of living, thinking and feeling are not working for them anymore, and who are ready to experience a better relationship with themselves and others, and greater life satisfaction. I grew up in Latin America and have experience working with people from many different countries and cultures.
