I am a bilingual psychologist originally from South America. I provide therapy in Spanish and English, and have worked extensively with clients of Latin descent. I specialize in treating adults with mood disorders/depression/bipolar disorder, posttraumatic stress/trauma, anxiety disorders, life transitions, male depression, issues related to loss and grief, and relationships. My approach to therapy is highly empathic and is based on care and respect. I strongly believe in establishing a relationship of equals and mutual respect between therapist and client; one that leads to a guided journey of self-discovery and change.

Licensed in IL and IA. Sometimes I feel lonely in a crowd, even in a crowd of my friends. Sometimes I feel like nothing I do will ever be good enough. Sometimes when I walk into a room, I try to avoid eye contact for fear that I will be seen, yet deep inside, all I want is for someone to actually see me. Does this describe you? If so, you are not the only one. A lot of people feel this way, especially those who have experienced difficult childhoods. No matter how successful you may appear on the outside, it's hard to shake the "I'm not enough" feeling.

Past experiences or traumas, difficult relationships, and invalidating or oppressive environments can inform patterns that are limiting and painful. We can feel stuck and disconnected from who we are and what we care about. Although life has its inevitable difficulties and losses, it’s still possible to grow, create authentic relationships, and move towards our values without becoming overwhelmed. Affirming, compassionate therapy can support that process.

I believe that therapy should be a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space, that offers the opportunity to process and make sense of emotions and experiences, and move towards deeper sense of self understanding. I am dedicated to helping people identify how certain thoughts, feelings and behaviors contribute to distress, and creating a collaborative path to change. My passion for providing therapy comes from the belief that we are inherently aware of what we need to be successful and are capable of making the changes necessary to move in a positive direction.

While they are a vital part of our lives and can bring us so much joy - relationships are complex! Think about it - although people spend years learning and practicing most key skills, many people have had limited opportunity learning about relationships and emotional skills. I work with people who are often very successful in many aspects of their lives, but who get stuck in emotional or relational patterns. They know they desire for things to be different and more satisfying but are not quite sure how to get there. That's where therapy can be a powerful platform for change!

My ideal style of therapy is suited to clients who believe that the relationship between therapist and client is paramount to the ability to change. I believe that change happens at the crossroads of challenge and non-judgement and this is the primary focus of my treatment- creating a safe environment in which clients believe they can present their issues and have them challenged in a supportive and non-judgemental way. I firmly believe that all clients have the ability to heal and grow regardless of personal, historical, professional and relational challenges.

You also have difficulty navigating relationships (especially family ones) and you want to have healthier relationships where you can speak honestly about your feelings and needs, feel less guilt, and find peace of mind.

Clients I work with often feel in-between jobs, relationships, cultures, identities, or values. This “in-between” feeling can show up as depression, anxiety, or difficulties with relationships and life transitions. I believe that peace and stability comes from finding comfort in the “in-between” and not forcing yourself out of it. I offer space for individuals to learn more about themselves and how they show up in the many roles in their lives so they can be more themselves in all parts of their lives.
