About

I am a Licensed Mental Counselor with a Masters degree from Purdue University and 12 years of experience working with children, adults and families. I was born and raised in Colombia, South America. I am fluent in both, Spanish and English and able to provide therapy in either language. My areas of expertise include: children who present mild through severe emotional and behavioral problems due to a history of trauma and/or difficult life events (i.e., death in the family, illness, divorce, other losses and family changes); working with parents struggling with parenting issues, adjustment to life events and parent/child relationship difficulties; and working with adults in a variety of problems including, adjustment disorders, post traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, grieving, and post-partum depression.
In my work with children, I do play therapy, and implement elements of Trauma Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I use a variety of techniques in order to help children express their emotions, process difficult life events, and improve in specific aspects. In my work with parents who struggle with parenting issues, I provide consultation about healthy child development, rearing practices and adjustment to family changes, specifically addressing stressors related to the developmental tasks of being a parent.
In my work with adults, I attempt to meet clients where they are in order to work in a collaborative process of identifying problems, establishing goals for therapy, and finding ways to cope with difficulties.
