About

You are a Gift. A Perfect Creation of Love and Generosity. My approach with individuals is multidisciplinary, systemic, all-embracing, holistic, and client-centered. I believe in the immense potential each person possesses and the capacity to heal. My core training is based on psychodynamic, cognitive, and behavioral theories. However, I use a mix of research-based techniques and mindfulness practices because I'm a strong believer in the power of the connection between mind, body, and soul. I believe that therapy is a creative process that can have a meaningful and profound impact in transforming people's lives.
I practice art therapy, mindfulness, TF-CBT (trauma focus cognitive behavioral therapy), sand tray therapy, and other techniques that is tailored to each client specific needs.
I am a bilingual Mental Health Counselor and a certified Spanish medical and social interpreter. I was born and raised in Nicaragua Central America. I enjoy nature, travel, and exercise. But above all, I love spending time with my family. I practice self-care constantly because I believe in the power of maintaining a balance between mind, body, and soul.
Tu Eres un Regalo. Una Creación perfecta de Amor y Generosidad. La manera en la que veo a los individuos es multidisciplinaria, sistémica, todo inclusivo, holistico, y enfocada en el cliente. Creo en el inmenso potencial que cada persona posee y en la capacidad de sanar. Mis entrenamientos básicos han sido enfocados en la sicología dinámica, cognitiva, y teorías del comportamiento. Sin embargo, utilizo una mezcla de técnicas basadas en estudios y practicas de atención plena porque soy una gran creyente en el inmenso poder de la conexion que existe entre la mente, cuerpo, y alma.
Mis practicas se basan en terapia de arte, atencion plena, procesos cognitivos, terapia de juego, y procesamiento de trauma.
Hola, soy una terapista de salud mental bilingue. Tambien soy una interprete medico y social cerrtificada. Disfruto de la naturaleza, viajar, y hacer ejercicios. Pero sobretodo, amo pasar tiempo con mi familia. Practico auto cuidado de mi salud mental constantemente porque creo en el poder de mantener un balance entre la mente, cuerpo, y alma.
