I work best with clients that desire a laid back, collaborative approach. Maybe you have goals in mind or need to process out loud to figure them out. My style is direct and casual, balanced with non-judgment and respect for your autonomy to support your authentic exploration and work towards connection, change, and healing. I have extensive experience with adolescents/young adults (ages 14-30), including queer , trans and nonbinary folks; parents; and adults navigating the general challenges of being a modern human in 2022.

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.

Taking steps to get counseling takes a lot of courage. I believe that everyone has their own unique experience and challenges, and that you don't have to go through it on your own. It is my goal to guide you closer to a balanced and happy life. I typically work with adults and adolescents ages 11-17 with anxiety, depression, body image, self-esteem, and coping skills. I am passionate about working with people who are marginalized (BIPOC, LGBTQ +, Women etc.).

I provide individual counseling as well as various group opportunities (Spirituality Groups, Coming Out and other LGBTQ Therapy Groups) to assist on your Healing Journey.
I believe that the psychotherapeutic journey is an Inner Journey ~ one in which we're traveling to find that which we have lost ~ in a word, our Selves. While it is usually some form of disillusion - depression, anxiety, relationship pain ~ that brings us into therapy, we discover that we are on a journey to find home ~ a place of safety, of freedom, of rest. Sooner or later, we learn that the home we are searching for is not to be found outside ourselves but, rather, within. If you are ready to deepen in your own journey, I am here to walk with you.

I have been able to help people who are struggling with an array of personal issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, LGBTQ , caregiver stress, and end of life issues.
I approach the therapeutic relationship from a client-centered lens with an integrative treatment approach. This means that I work with each client to develop a unique treatment plan to address their specific needs. I do not utilize a one size fits all approach and I believe that the client is just as important in this process as the therapist is. I examine all aspects of a client’s perspective including the systems that impact them. Treating the whole person is an important aspect for me in my therapeutic engagement with clients. I believe that every person has value and is worthy of kindness.

I have a background working with eating disorders, self injury, grief, trauma, LGBT +, domestic violence/sexual assault and cognitive impairments.
Seeking therapy is a hopeful and courageous act. There are times when we all need some additional support and guidance to help us get to where we want to be mentally and emotionally. Counseling can help us take this journey and get to that healthier place. I cherish the relationships with my clients and I strive to be open, caring, supportive, empathetic and above all professional. I live by the motto "meet your clients where they are". This will help us to form the therapeutic relationship and start your journey to healing.

I desire to provide a safe place for you to explore the issues of anxiety, grief or depression that keep you from living life more fully. You may be struggling with low self-esteem or a loss of identity due to changes, such as loss of a relationship, life transitions, or loss due to trauma. You may find it difficult to move past shaming messages and would like to learn how to find your authentic voice in order to live boldly and with greater self-acceptance.

Welcome to my profile. Finding the "RIGHT" therapist can feel like a real challenge for most people. I am a Holistic Psychotherapist in private practice since 1986. My healing approach is dependent on the needs of each individual client. The areas of special interest to me are spirituality, relationship and self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, addictions and co-dependency, loss and grief, trauma, dissociation, (not necessarily in that order). I also offer group therapy, and have facilitated groups dealing with the aging process, self esteem/relationship issues, co-dependency, spirituality, grief/loss, and depression.
