I have worked in the counseling field for over 20 years, primarily in a University setting, until the past several years when I began working in private practice. I enjoy working with clients who believe in their potential to change and have the motivation to make those changes. I have experience working with a variety of issues. Clients I most often work with struggle with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship/marital problems, abuse, trauma and grief and loss. I listen, without judgment, and provide objective feedback while also being compassionate. I provide a safe space to learn, change and grow.

Attempting to cope with a mental health concern is often a lonely and exhausting process. Additionally, pursuing counseling can often be a difficult decision to make, but one that I believe is worthwhile. As a counselor, my role is to help support you through your healing journey and empower you to rediscover your own unique strengths and resources as a means to promote such healing. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to share your own unique life story.

Each of us can identify some aspect of our lives that we'd like to change. As your therapist, my intention is to help you learn about the therapeutic process and how it can help you identify the changes you'd like to make; collaborate with you in setting realistic, achievable goals for yourself; teach you to incorporate coping skills to ease through transitions; and fully support you while we walk this journey together. Above all else, your comfort is my priority, and I offer you compassion and understanding without judgment.

I am a bilingual Spanish/English mental health counselor who understands that talking about how you really think or feel is not easy, and sometimes can be scary. Opening up to a stranger takes courage, and I know that taking that first step can be difficult. You might doubt that things can get better, that’s why I want to provide you that space where you feel comfortable and where you can be you. Choosing a therapist is not an easy process, I am committed to developing our therapeutic relationship.

I work with ages 3 through adulthood: individuals, couples, and families. I have worked with individuals who have: depression, anxiety, Bipolar, grief from any type of loss, ADHD, Autism, stress, anger, divorce, and those who need a third party to talk to without judgement. I am trained in Adlerian Play Therapy for children and adults to reach beyond traditional talk therapy for self-expression/processing when words are hard to find. It is proven that children say much more in play than they have the words for.

I love working with a variety of individuals. As a Marriage and Family therapist, I especially enjoy working with people in the context of their family. I believe we are influenced and shaped by past events, relationships, and our upbringing. Therapy is a helpful way to explore those areas we are struggling with and to learn a little bit more about ourselves. By doing this, we can become healthier and happier people.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
