When we experience intense emotions that result from life stress, transitions, or past experiences, it can be difficult to feel hope. We might feel stuck, as if we have always felt this way. You do not have to do this alone. I work together with my clients in re-connecting with their strengths and building a strong positive relationship with themselves.
The journey to healing is unique to everyone. Understanding the story of my clients and how they view the world around them is vital. I work with my clients to create a safe space to better understand themselves and build a life that is fulfilling.
I am a bicultural/bilingual Latina psychologist. I specialize in the assessment and treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, self-harm, and suicidality with individuals with diverse identities. I can provide assessment and therapy services in English and Spanish.
