It may be that life deals us the unexpected, or perhaps things just slowly begin to feel “off”—whatever the case may be, we can find growth and healing by exploring the ways our past affects our present. Scary? Definitely! But accessing these versions of ourselves that have been dormant is what helps us shift from surviving to thriving. Whether you’ve been experiencing anxiety, depression, life transition, trauma, or feeling burned out, I can help become a truer version of yourself. For your convenience, I offer online appointments for clients located in DC and MD, or in person appointments at my office in Farragut Square, DC.
I also specialize in working with identity issues, BIPOC, immigrants, and individuals from dual cultures. While I offer traditional talk therapy, I also use a lot of somatic techniques, brainspotting, EMDR, and mindfulness meditation to better access the connection between mind and body, resulting in improved mental and physical well-being.
Soy psicoterapeuta y tengo una Maestría en consejería de salud mental clínica de la Universidad de George Washington de DC. Un posgrado de la Universidad de Marymount de VA. Llevo 10 años de trabajo clínico en hospitales y clínicas comunitarias en el área de DC, MD and VA. Proveo terapia individual, de adultos, parejas y adolescentes.
