I want to be here for you. I know it can be difficult to choose someone you can trust to collaboratively guide you through this time. Here is a little about me to help you make your decision. I am a clinical and community psychologist which means I bring dual roles as a psychologist to my practice. As a clinical psychologist I employ the skills of understanding difficulties and how to intervene. As a community psychologist, I merge my understanding of self-empowerment, cultural/contextual knowledge and strength-based work into the healing process.

Similarly, I bring multiple identities of my own as a professional, mother, partner, Tia (aunt), sister, daughter and community member. Importantly as a bilingual and bi-cultural Latina, I provide assessments and evaluations. I specialize in working with individuals with diverse identities (e.g., ethnic identities, sexual identity diversity, etc.).

I bring over a decade of work in the area of trauma both with survivors and as a scientific contributor. I value the therapeutic relationship and strive to create a compassionate and warm holding space to actively work with my clients in finding solutions and building insight.
