Are you feeling "out of sync," unmotivated, confused, lethargic, anxious, depressed? Are your relationships suffering? Your productivity at work? Your belief in yourself? When one area of your life is depleted, it can create imbalance in other areas of your life. This can include areas of emotional health, physical health, nutrition, sleep, relationships, work, money, and spirituality. My holistic approach addresses clients as a "whole" person...all aspects within yourself (biology, thoughts, feelings) and outside yourself (work, culture, relationships, finances, etc.). As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Certified Holistic Health Coach, I facilitate your body's own natural healing process.

As a White presenting Latina, I understand my interactions with social/healthcare/justice systems are not the same as my brown or black counterparts. I will endeavor to provide anti-racist, culturally informed therapy. Actively using my privilege and challenging systems is important to me.

The longer I practice as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, the more my work has come to focus on empowerment. Sometimes people and systems hold us back, sometimes we hold ourselves back, and far too often we sell ourselves short. I can help you navigate these problems as you work toward becoming the best version of yourself. Everyone’s journey and their needs in psychotherapy are different and I don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. However, I generally view the goal of psychotherapy as getting relief from your most pressing problems while developing the insights and skills to help you manage long after therapy has ended.

As an immigrant, I recognize the unique experience individuals face in life. I am passionate about delivering quality care and service to my clients. I hopes to provide support to anyone who is going through a confusing phase or hardship. One of the reasons why I became a social worker was my passion for improving care in communities. I specialize in working young adults, adults and older adults dealing with complex trauma, family dynamics, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, stress, phase-of-life changes, grief, and loss, as well as children with ADHD and autism.

I have worked in many different contexts of practice, from inpatient psychiatric care to outpatient substance use with many diverse communities including the LGBTQIA community, youth and families, racial/ethnic minorities, and persons entering and leaving the federal prison system. I utilize an eclectic style including motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy in order to provide a safe and supportive place for clients to create change. I believe that it is important to assess each client's needs and provide either direct support or space for an individual to work on their own for short or long term care.

By creating a safe, non-judgmental environment the client gains a strong foundation that aids the development of insight and the ability to explore new ways of thinking and doing. After years of helping clients, I recognize that the core of successful therapy stems from the therapeutic relationship.

I enjoy supporting folks who are struggling with issues around life direction and finding meaning. In this late stage of capitalism, many people are suffering the consequences of understandable responses to negative life situations and the burdens imposed by modern society. As a therapist, I see myself not as a distant expert but as a fellow human who has also experienced existential anxiety and fear. I strive to guide others through the difficult process of accepting and living with the inevitabilities of human life. Ultimately, I believe lasting health and wholeness come from living an embodied and authentic life.

Too often the problems and emotional pain that loom large in our lives are compounded by a lack of understanding of what lies beneath. Do you wonder why you always react a certain way to your partner or family member even if you really try not to? Do you feel stuck in an emotional or behavioral cycle? I believe that lasting change can come from deeper understanding and compassion for oneself that helps extend it to others.

What type of Chicago 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 Chicago?
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.
