My intention as a therapist is to help you get clear about what you need physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually so you have more energy and confidence to create a fulfilling, authentic life. Using an eclectic approach, I integrate Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness, and Mind-Body modalities to work with the barriers that prevent you from creating the life and transformative relationships you desire. I am particularly interested in helping clients navigate internal and external relationship patterns, supporting creative expression, developing self compassion, and spiritual exploration and development.

I believe good psychotherapy can simultaneously alleviate distress while also cultivating joy, creativity, and fulfillment for oneself and others. My approach to therapy helps people remain deeply connected to themselves in order to more skillfully navigate relationship challenges, life transitions, and other difficulties. Flexible and collaborative, my approach brings attention to the emotional, physical, spiritual, and cultural aspects of healing and growth. I work well with people who are looking for both support and challenge and people who are seeking more ease in the face of difficulty.

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.

The poet David Whyte writes, "Let my history then be a gate unfastened to a new life and not a barrier to my becoming. Let me find the ghosts and histories and barely imagined future of this world, and let me now have the innocence to grow just as well in shadow or light." Coming to therapy can help release you from the confining narratives of your history and help you discover a future you might not have previously imagined. I will work with you to hear from your pain and how that pain might be speaking to you.

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.
