I am passionate about helping clients express feelings, adopt helpful thought patterns and achieve meaningful change. I take a holistic view of counseling and my approach is responsive toward the unique needs and strengths of every client. I work to create a safe and encouraging environment where clients can feel valued and heard. I specialize in counseling with adolescents and adults and use several different treatment modalities to match the needs of each client. These treatment modalities include talk therapy, activity therapy, and EMDR.

I have experience in partial hospitalization and outpatient settings addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, trauma, self-harm, suicidal ideation and sexual abuse. I have training in several different treatment modalities, including DBT and Trauma Focused CBT. I have also been trained in EMDR by an EMDRIA approved trainer.

I have extensive training on incorporating spiritual issues in the counseling process. I work with clients from all faiths and worldviews and I'm able to offer Christian counseling to clients who prefer it. As a Cuban-American, I have a familiarity with multicultural contexts and Hispanic culture. I offer bilingual therapy for Spanish speakers.
