I feel that therapy is a process that people enter when they are searching for growth, change or acceptance. I can assist you with learning new skills or help you discover those skills that you didn't realize you posessed. I emphasize the process of change in the context of a life span development and treat children (5+), adolescents, adults and families.

Are you struggling to work through grief, trauma, anxiety, or other intense emotions, including questions about your identity, infertility, or divorce? My core beliefs are trauma often occurs within the context of a relationship. Trauma work will focus on having a healthy relationship within the context of therapy and with yourself. Grief is an ongoing process that takes time. Working through managing distress & emotions, and taking care of yourself can be both more difficult & easier than any of us thought possible.

Our emotions are essential for survival. They can help to keep us safe, motivate us, assist us in making decisions and help us to connect with others. For some, emotions can be hard to identify or express. For others, emotions can be overwhelming and can cause complications in relationships. Sometimes, we may behave in ways we normally wouldn't, which can create distance between us and others. Are you looking to develop strategies to identify, express, or manage your emotions more effectively? Do you want to feel more connected in your relationships? Call today!

Growing up, mental health is not something I heard of or talked about often. Being raised Mexican for me meant that the chances of having a conversation about mental health was not likely, much less learning how to express my emotions and stress in healthy ways. The older I get, the more I learn, the more people I meet--the more I strive to help bring mental health awareness and education to not only the Latinx community but to anyone willing and ready to learn.
