I have been a companion for hundreds of clients, including those in the Hispanic population, in their process of working their desired goals and finding the appropriate treatment to achieve them.
It is not easy to start therapy treatment. An ideal client is a person that, even through all the fears, doubts and questions, takes the first step to start treatment and gives a chance to explore a new technique to find better balance in their life. There could be setbacks in the process but the most important thing is to stay constant. The client is willing to work in their goals and implement skills learned in every session. Also, to ask questions needed, even if they feel afraid, in order to be able to communicate with their therapist in a honest way.

My practice is dedicated to helping clients deepen their capacity for self awareness and personal agency. As part of our work together I help clients explore and develop insight into unconscious processes, repetitive patterns of behavior, and relational difficulties to understand what gets in the way of living meaningfully and authentically while reaching desired goals. Drawing from psychoanalytic, relational, and mindfulness approaches, I work collaboratively with clients to facilitate a safe therapeutic space conducive to increased intimacy, curiosity, and creativity while building on strengths derived from their unique life experiences.

Openings on Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays...How you see yourself plays a key role in how you interact with the world and others. If you feel at odds or disconnected with your inner self you could feel overwhelmed and distressed in relationships, work, family and other areas of your life. Life transitions, grief, loss and trauma can all contribute to the overwhelm and sense of disconnection with "self" and others. I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) and Latina psychologist. My goal is to work with clients collaboratively, and help them build a renewed sense of trust, resiliency, and empowerment.

I specialize in treating trauma and relationship concerns. I support individuals with attachment trauma or painful past experiences that continue to impact their current lives, getting in the way of feeling grounded, connected, and vibrant. I also support couples, relationship partners, and adult family members to engage more effectively, sustainably, and lovingly with each other. I engage with clients as whole people and explore their concerns in the context of identities and experiences that matter to them. With that in mind, I invite them to build awareness and skills that will help them thrive rather than tread water.

Who are you really? This is a question I ask my clients. I have been a psychotherapist and consultant for over 30 years. I draw on my innate intuitive abilities as well as my traditional clinical training to bring healing and transformation to my clients. My family systems background allows me to see the individual as a multifaceted system. What we perceive as a “problem” often reflects how we have adapted to the stress and trauma that we may have endured. Our perceived problems, such as addiction to substances, and other self- defeating patterns become encoded within our whole system, and ultimately distort our true essence.

Hispanic and Latino Therapists

What makes a Hispanic and Latino therapist effective?

An effective Hispanic and Latino therapist can combine a culturally sensitive lens with proven therapies, such as Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). They may have an understanding of cultural attitudes to therapy, including potential stigma, and can help a client navigate those concerns. Some clients may also appreciate a therapist who is bilingual and is comfortable conversing with the client in both English and Spanish. Languages spoken are indicated on a therapist’s directory profile.

Why is it important for a therapist to be culturally sensitive?

A culturally sensitive therapist is respectful and considerate of all groups, and may have specific expertise with individuals of a certain ethnicity. These considerations can help a client feel understood and can improve the therapeutic alliance. While some people think highlighting race and ethnicity could promote stereotypes and bias, most agree that knowledge about cultural differences enhances the alliance between therapist and client.

How can I recognize a therapist who has expertise working with Hispanic and Latino clients?

Successful therapy depends a great deal on the relationship between client and therapist. Start by asking the therapist about their overall approach to therapy. You may then wish to ask about the therapist’s educational background and any additional training in cultural sensitivity that they have undertaken.

How might I inquire about a therapist's experience with Hispanic and Latino clients?

Ask a potential therapist whether they've worked with individuals who share this background or whether they’ve worked in these communities. If so, you may wish to ask them to elaborate on ways that they feel especially prepared to work with Hispanic and Latino clients. If they have not worked with such clients, they may know someone who has and be able to make a referral.

Who is included in Psychology Today’s directory of Hispanic and Latino therapists?

The directory of Hispanic and Latino therapists includes providers who have identified their ethnicity in their profiles. Psychology Today uses this information to assist clients in finding a therapist who can provide a cultural match. However, not all therapists choose to disclose their ethnicity in their profiles, and they may not appear in search results for this reason. When the number of therapists near you who identify as Hispanic and Latino is limited, the directory will also show therapists with comprehensive experience working with clients from relevant backgrounds.
