By identifying your child 's specific strengths and weaknesses, an individualized treatment plan will target interventions at home, school, and in the community.
I aim to help children , adolescents, and young adults struggling with academic/social success. Whether dealing with ADHD, Learning Disorders, social skill deficits, motivation, or limited access to support services - a neuropsychological evaluation is the first step on the road to success. Children are often referred by their pediatrician, neurologist, classroom/ resource teacher, or school psychologist due to concerns regarding their functioning. Comprehensive evaluations are tailored to your child 's individual needs. Comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations typically include : intelligence, achievement/academic skills, executive functioning, learning and memory, language, visual spatial skills, coordination, social skills, behavioral and emotional functioning, and personality.

I work with clients of all ages with a wide variety of issues. My ideal client would be anyone (individual, couple, or family) who has identified an area(s) in life that needs to be worked on and has made the choice to work on that area(s). Simply making that decision sets the foundation for successful treatment.

I work towards providing a space for children to express their emotions, feelings, and experiences in ways they can understand: through play.
Everyone hits highs and lows in their lives. We all wish to be heard, understood, and accepted, which is why I value each and every experience shared. I believe in the notion of “putting yourself in ones’ shoes” to fully accept and understand others exactly how they are and what they are experiencing. I am passionate about giving voice to those who struggle making theirs heard and encouraging them to make positive changes in their lives. Each and every individual, child and adult, has the internal power to be the person they wish to be, through understanding, acceptance, and creating their unique meaning and purpose in life.

For Children /Teens: It is my mission to supply an additional safe space for your child /teen to reconnect with their self-worth and expand their coping skills.
Everyone deserves to be accepted, appreciated and acknowledged. When stress overcomes, we often forgot how deserving we are of these essential needs. For Young Adults: Shifting out of high school comes with many uncertainties. Whichever avenue you’ve selected, life starts to feel different as more decisions, expectations, or emotions piling up. I am here to support you through these transitions, while supplying you a space to call your own. I adapt my approach to best fit your needs whether its through building skills, processing, life planning or simply being your empathetic support!

Lastly, I have to emphasize that whatever help your child /teen and family needs and whatever difficulties you face, I accept and welcome you.
Empathy and compassion drive us to be the best version of ourselves, whether through having empathy for others in our environment, compassion for our own lived experiences, or acceptance of our triumphs, large and small. As a first-generation, Latinx, child of immigrants, I understand the collective traumatic experiences that make our people face extensive mental illness and accessibility discrepancies. I am also a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and understand the impact discrimination and marginalization can inflict on a person.

As a professional, and a parent I truly understand there is no greater joy than seeing your child happy and healthy. I also know there is no greater heartache than seeing your child unhappy. For adults: stress, anxiety, and depression can diminish time with families. For children : poor self-esteem, decreased confidence, bullying/ loss, academic struggles or a disability can impact friendships,family, and academics. I specialize in working with people who have experienced a twist in life that they were not expecting. I have 25 years of treating adults and children who want to reclaim control of their lives.
