About

There are times when life changes can occur without a formal "heads up" (as in the case of this current pandemic). And whether it's navigating life during a pandemic, starting a new career, managing school, exploring your identity, parenthood, or the loss of a loved one, such transitions can oftentimes feel daunting, especially without the proper support. That is why, I believe in the therapeutic process and in helping my clients find a healthy balance to welcome change - together we can ride that wave.
Working with a variety of populations, my style is adaptable, tailoring my approach according to the individual's needs. I find that taking a holistic and integrative approach, can offer the most effective treatment in a therapeutic environment.
As a bilingual and bicultural therapist , and drawing from a variety of modalities, I can offer a diverse perspective in the therapeutic setting.
En este tiempo de pandemia y aislamiento, una gran parte de la poblacion esta pasando por una etapa de angustia y confusión. Es por eso, que como terapista de salud mental, podre darles un apoyo que los ayudara a guiarlos y encontrar una paz mental y con su entorno. Seria un placer formar parte de su mundo y convertir sus problemas en soluciones. Al fin, es la experiencia terapéutica que los ayudara a lograr este objetivo y por supuesto juntos podemos alcanzar estas metas.
