About

Are you struggling to feel like yourself or feel a void or emptiness? Do you find yourself trying to just get through the day, feeling lost or purposeless at times? Whether it is difficulties in your workplace, school, relationships, or how you feel about yourself, these life challenges can make it difficult to function as your best self on a day to day basis. Sometimes self-care is not enough to help you feel like your most authentic self. Connection is a human need and we all deserve to feel seen and be heard. Therapy is an opportunity to invest in your healing and growth, and to learn how to not just survive, but thrive.
As a Latinx woman and daughter of immigrants, I strive to understand how your intersecting identities and lived experiences have helped create the resilient person you are, strengthen your skills, and learn new ones in order for you to achieve your goals and lead a more fulfilling life.
My goal is to help you show up as your best self, even when life gets hard. If you would like to learn more about my approach and if we would be a good fit for your goals, please send me an email to schedule a free consultation with me! Wishing you all the best on this journey towards your healing, growth, and fulfillment.
