I offer both DBT and DBT informed care for individuals that struggle with self-harming urges, suicidal behaviors, difficulty with emotions and angry outbursts.
Do you sometimes feel like you are drowning in your emotions instead of just experiencing them? Does anger, sadness and fear keep impacting your life in ways you don't want it to? Do you struggle with thoughts of self-harm, of not being good enough or feeling like you are empty inside? Do you want close, loving relationships and yet, still find yourself pushing people away? Do you struggle with feelings of extreme anger and do you sometimes "erupt" and look back at the harm you caused and wonder why? Or does your loved one struggle with these things and it's negatively impacted YOUR life and you just don't know how to cope anymore?

I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), and multicultural and insight-oriented approaches to equip my clients with tools to cope with their symptoms and address life obstacles.
Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, or relationship concerns? Do you question who you are and why you make certain choices? Are you looking to move beyond a painful, traumatic past? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I can help. I am a bilingual (Spanish) licensed psychologist with 15 years of clinical experience and expertise in EMDR therapy, an effective treatment for resolving traumatic experiences such as sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. With empathy and non-judgment, we can work together to increase self-understanding, facilitate change, and promote healing and growth.

I use an integrative, strength-based approach, incorporating CBT, DBT , and Trauma Informed Care.
The stressors of daily life can be difficult to manage on the best of days, but for those experiencing mental health issues, these stressors can feel insurmountable. Many people I have worked with are struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, LGBTQ+ issues, identity issues, suicidal thoughts, etc. Many of them struggle with unhealthy coping skills, such as self-harm or other risky behaviors. They are seeking a safe outlet for self-expression, reflection, and creating healthy coping strategies.

I can offer a variety of modalities, including EMDR, DBT , CBT, art and experiential therapies.
Life can take us to places we don't want to go, and give us an education for which we did not want to pay. I understand this and can help you navigate life's uncertainties. I have assisted clients learn to love themselves, find the resources they need, and heal from the situations life brings to us. I offer a compassionate and non-judgmental safe place to explore, process, and heal. You might not feel like it, but you are stronger than you know. I will be your biggest cheerleader, your advocate, your support in times of stress. I will also challenge the old ways of thinking and doing things.

My passion is rooted in working with youth and adults who may find themselves faced with life challenges of depression, anxiety, and trauma, as well as cultural specific barriers faced in the BIPOC community. Although my primary way of helping others address these hardships is through a cognitive and behavioral approach, I believe integrating techniques catered to the individual is optimal for change. Additionally, I believe our mental health is interconnected with our physical and spiritual well-being. Therefore, my focus is to help my clients align those elements for improved overall health.

My idea clients range from early adulthood to age ninety (90). Most seek to work with me because they have relationship challenges, mood issues or anxiety. Most couples who attend will seek to improve their relational skills such s better communication, revitalized positive emotions toward each other, or to resolve conflicts. Individuals who attend tend to have depression, anxiety or general unhappiness and wish to discover a more peaceful and calm manner of living. Frequently, families going through divorce will also seek support to deal with the challenges from resolving parenting or co-parenting issues, or improve live changes.

What type of Tallahassee mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Tallahassee?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
