About

I’m a Latinx bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Doctoral Candidate in Applied Clinical Psychology, who is trained in EMDR and is passionate about helping adults and adolescents cultivate a more fulfilling life and satisfying relationships. My primary goal is to help you increase your sense of safety, become a better version of yourself, and thrive in your relationships.
My focus is on helping individuals to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. I practice from a compassionate and person-centered approach and utilize diverse interventions to meet your specific needs toward healing and adopting greater self-acceptance.
Therapy can help you overcome the difficulties associated with unresolved feelings of grief and anger, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse so you can focus on the things that matter to you the most.
