My practice sees children and adults who seek support for a variety of reasons. I see children who are experiencing family changes/transitions, relocation/acculturation, behavioral challenges at home and/or school, who need social-emotional skills development, as well as support in overcoming trauma, depression, anxiety or navigating learning challenges, amongst​ others. Similarly, I see adults who seek a safe place to express, download and explore what is present, whether a life transition or change, hardships or simply not feeling happy.

Whilst I am humanistically trained and integrate echoing clinical practices, I am interested in the neuroscience of emotions and developing emotional literacy and social-emotional awareness through creative expression. I focus on fostering emotional intelligence by learning and understanding feelings and emotions, how to manage them and how to self-care​.

Additionally, I am an Expressive Arts therapist so engaging in the arts is always a choice. Having a wide palette of creative modalities such as drawing, painting, sculpting, moving/dance, acting, music, puppets, and sand tray, for example, assures there is always a choice of expression besides spoken word. Feel free to visit my website for more information.

En mi consulta atiendo a niños y adultos que buscan apoyo por una variedad de razones. Veo niños que estan viviendo cambios o transiciones familiares, reubicación/aculturación, desafíos de comportamiento en el hogar y/o la escuela, que necesitan desarrollo de habilidades socioemocionales, así como apoyo en la superación de trauma, depresión, ansiedad o apoyo con desafíos de aprendizaje, entre otros. Asimismo, atiendo a adultos que buscan un lugar seguro para expresar, descargar y explorar lo que está presente, ya sea una transición o cambio de vida, dificultades o simplemente no sentirse feliz.

En mi entrenamiento humanista, integro varias modalidades. Me interesa la neurociencia de las emociones, el desarrollo del lenguaje y la conciencia socioemocional a través de la expresión creativa. Mi enfoque es fomentar la inteligencia emocional desde el aprender y el entender los sentimientos y las emociones, cómo manejarlos practicando el autocuidado.

Me especializo en terapia de artes expresivas. Ofrezco una variedad de modalidades creativas como dibujar, pintar, esculpir, mover/bailar, actuar, música, títeres y caja de arena, etc., lo que asegura que siempre hay una elección de expresión además de la palabra hablada. Hacer artes es siempre una opción. Para mas información visita mi web.
