I specialize in working with individual and couples to address relational issues, infidelity, dating, breakups, emotional engagement, intimacy, traumatic events and history of abuse. I am bilingual in English and Spanish and I work through a compassionate and trauma-informed lens.
I specialize in integrating family, culture, race, ethnic identity, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and immigration experiences into the practice. I provide culturally responsive, trauma-informed, evidence-based and LGBTQ+ affirming therapy with an emphasis on serving the Latine/Spanglish, multiracial/multicultural population.
My approach to healing is to focus on co-creating a trusting, safe and empowered experience and I strongly believe in empowering clients to achieve their goals. I also believe a healthy sense of humor can go a long way in the therapy room.
