About

(
English
 |

)
I offer counseling for children (ages 4-10), adolescents (11 to 17), and their families. Together, we will identify goals and strategies that can alleviate emotional distress and improve behavior. I work with school counselors and teachers to strengthen the student's support system. I also work with couples who are experiencing relationship difficulties. At times, improving communication may seem to be the solution, and other times, the relationship may need deeper exploration to understand the dynamics that may be contributing to the relationship difficulties. I also offer individual counseling.
I am a bilingual licensed clinical professional counselor and I have many years of working with children, adolescents, and adults. I am culturally sensitive and I can provide counseling in Spanish. If I am working with children and adolescents, I use a cognitive-behavioral approach, as well as use games, play, and art to facilitate the counseling process.
I believe that we are all a community and that we can help each other through difficult times. I would like to offer you the experience of a safe counseling space and a support system for you and your family.
Trabajo con niños, adolescentes, y familias para ayudarlo(a) cuando hay dificultades emocionales o con el comportamiento. En colaboración, identificaremos nuevas estrategias para fortalecer el estado emocional y mejorar el comportamiento. También trabajo con parejas que están teniendo dificultades y que quieran enriquecer su lazo emocional. A veces la solución puede ser desenvolverse en la comunicación, y a veces se necesita ver la dinámica de pareja con mas profundidad.
Soy consejera bilingüe con licencia clínica (2005). Soy sensible culturalmente y ofrezco consejería en español. Tengo mucha experiencia con niños y adolescentes y cuando trabajo con ellos en consejería, me comunico con la trabajadora social, consejera(o) y maestra(o) para formar un apoyo colaborativo para el nińo(a) o adolescente.
Creo que todos somos una comunidad donde se puede ayudar, el uno y otro, especialmente cuando hay tiempos difíciles. Yo quisiera ofrecerle esta experiencia de apoyo para usted y su familia.
