I strive to join you in examining your inner world with curiosity and compassion. My approach is integrative, collaborative, and tailored to your personal goals and current struggles. I especially love to work with young adults, college/graduate students, and adults with social anxiety, stress, mood disorders, life transition concerns, perfectionism, low self-esteem, and relationship issues. As a Bilingual Latina woman, I’m passionate about and committed to meeting the mental health needs of the Latinx community. Fluent in both Spanish and English, I embrace my bilingualism as a means of fostering connection and understanding.
My training focuses on CBT, ACT and Mindfulness approaches to therapy. I believe in cultural consciousness as a tool for dismantling barriers and fostering cultural unity. In our fast-paced world, resilience is often emphasized, and I believe that we shouldn't always have to endure. I also explore geek culture when relevant to build connections with clients.
Taking the first step towards therapy can be tough, but you don't have to face it alone. We can embark on this endeavor together. I hope to support individuals in finding their creative paths to fulfillment, well-being and balance. To set up an appointment, click the "Become a Client" button on our homepage.
