My passions are working with trauma, children, and bridging the gap between marginalized populations and mental health services. Trauma is hard for everyone and even harder to deal with on your own. I am of the belief that every person has the capability to heal and grow. Whether you need someone to talk to who will always listen or want to engage in trauma work such as EMDR or IFS, it will be my honor to empower you throughout your journey to the new, healed you.

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.

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.

Now accepting new clients - Therapy can be overwhelming and it is important to me to create a place where you can feel safe to be vulnerable. I provide a calm and laid-back environment to offer an inviting atmosphere for you to discuss your feelings, thoughts, and experiences. This is especially important to me because I know that growth happens outside of our comfort zone. We aren’t always aware of what we can achieve, and I enjoy assisting others in opening their eyes to their full potential. I have a strong belief that being willing to explore the challenging pieces of ourselves will allow us to grow.

Whether it's depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship struggles, or tackling a new chapter of life, I love working with clients who are ready to understand themselves better, and looking for support in their growth. I believe every person has their own unique set of patterns for tackling life and emotions, and problems often arise when these patterns are no longer serving us well. It can be difficult and frustrating to seek a better life if we do not first understand what has brought us to our current struggle or what still stands in our way. I'm here to be a listener, companion, and problem-solver while you're on that journey.

As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself, I understand the stigma associated with feeling as if you don't fit into the norms that the majority group has set for you. I offer you a safe place to be heard and understood to discuss things others might not get. We all walk a unique path in this life and I will always support your individuality. I absolutely love celebrating successes with those I work with, and I enjoy seeing people’s faces light up with pride in their achievements. Seeing a person grow before your eyes, even when they don’t notice it yet themselves, is an amazing thing. That said, everything isn’t always rainbows,(

Now accepting new clients 16+, I have extensive experience helping clients manage several disorders. I enjoy working with clients with intense emotions such as shame, guilt, fear, and anger. I assist in managing symptoms coming from abuse, rejection, and other past traumas. I am aware that people often have the perception that they don't fit it in or are disconnected from others. I would like to be able to be a support person and help clients navigate feelings and relationships. As well as helping clients gain communication skills and build a healthy support network.

I also lead support groups for partners and family of transgender people online.
Serving clients in Illinois and Iowa. Our first priority will be to establish trust and mutual respect so that you begin to feel comfortable and safe. Therapy can be a rewarding experience, but for many people it can feel daunting. Our initial sessions will be focused on establishing consistency, predictability and safety. People are best served by helping them to understand their strengths. Together we will create goals to help you become your "best self". I prefer to utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, teaching about attachment and neuroscience.

What type of Waterloo 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Waterloo?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
