Do you feel stuck, angry or bereft over the loss of a loved one? I can help you sort through these feelings so that you can make peace with them, enhance your self worth and move forward. I use empathy, attentive listening and well-timed humor to help my clients overcome challenges and discover new facets of themselves. I may also incorporate deep breathing practices, guided visualizations and attention to the sensations in your body to better support you. A Latina immigrant and career changer, I can help you develop clarity as you make bold transitions, develop your voice and navigate complex cultural identities.

Therapy can facilitate growth, but it can also be challenging. I honor your courage, meet you at your pace and hold space for both your pain and hope. You are a mosaic of joys, hardships, strength and possibilities. Together, we can plant seeds of change so that you can heal, strengthen your relationships and feel enlivened.

Finding a therapist you trust is the most important part of therapy. You deserve to feel respected, understood and supported. Let's discover if I'm the right fit for you. Please call or email me to schedule a free 20-minute phone consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.
