People are often exposed to stressors and or traumatic events that at times can unravel emotions that seem to consume us. During these times it seems hard to find the light at the end of the tunnel. My passion is to help people find this light, to help heal from their past trauma and move forward. I assist my clients; school aged children and young adults in finding and changing their negative distortions and identifying their strengths in order to help achieve a peaceful, happy and whole perception of themselves.

Will have Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday availability starting in August 2024…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 won't know on day one what method of treatment works best for you, because people reveal themselves over time, and at their own pace. My holistic, culturally sensitive approach is rooted in respect, truth and compassion. I respect the unique way in which you show up in the world. I believe there is power in discovering your truth, and I will always show you compassion. I incorporate my knowledge of the human body that I gained through professional experience in the fitness/yoga industry to help you better understand the connection between the mind, the body and the spirit.

Feeling unlike yourself or feeling like you don't even know yourself can be painful and confusing. Hiding parts of yourself can compound the pain. Perhaps you are feeling stuck or that you have to keep it all together despite feeling like you are slowly unraveling. You might wonder often if it is you? Or them? Or your environment? Arriving in this place can be painful but can also turn into an opportunity for growth and tumbling into a new and unexpected direction.

*I REGRET THAT I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME* As a psychodynamic psychologist, I approach the therapeutic relationship as a powerful medium for exploring and reworking longstanding problematic relationship patterns. At the same time, I am committed to working flexibly and pragmatically, and frequently draw upon cognitive-behavioral, cultural, and neuropsychological perspectives relevant for individual clients. I am committed to addressing issues of class, race, gender, sexual orientation and ethnicity which may be relevant for my clients.

William Arthur Ward once said, "We can choose to throw stones, to stumble on them, to climb over them, or to build with them." The passion I carry for the therapeutic process is not only founded on my training and education but also my personal experience. I have faith in one's capacity for growth that comes from the willingness to be honest and courage to face difficult issues. In this life we will encounter many stones in our path. It is up to each individual to choose what they will do with them.

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.
