Does it feel like you are crawling out of your skin, and don't know why? Let me help you. I am a Christian Counselor specializing in working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA), domestic violence, and trauma. As a survivor of CSA, I am able to relate to my client's pain with compassion and understanding. I am also a Sex Therapist and work with couples dealing with infidelity and other sexual problems. My personal philosophy is that people are wounded in relationship and that it is in relationship where the greatest healing occurs.

Sexual abuse takes time to repair, it is not something that can be overcome quickly, because it affects not only the body but also the mind and the spirit. I tailor my therapy to the needs of my individual clients. It is difficult to understand "why" Infidelity happens. Before you decide to end your marriage seek counseling, there is hope.

Specializing in: Christian Sex Therapy, Couples Counseling, Infidelity, Childhood Sexual Abuse, Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), Domestic Violence, and Trauma. I am bi-lingual (English/Spanish) and understand the difficulties that other cultures face trying to fit into the American way of life. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation.

¿Siente algunas veces como si quisiera arrancarse la piel y no sabe por qué? Permítame ayudarle. Soy teraupeuta cristiana, especializada en trabajar con sobrevivientes de abuso sexual infantil (ASI), violencia doméstica y trauma. Como sobreviviente de ASI, puedo identificarme con el dolor de mi cliente con compasión y comprensión. También soy terapeuta sexual y trabajo con parejas que estan confrontando infidelidad y otros problemas sexuales. Mi filosofía personal es “que las personas fueron heridas en una relación, y que es en una relación donde ocurre la mayor sanación.” No deje pasar más tiempo antes de encontrar ayuda.

El abuso sexual requiere tiempo para repararse, no es algo que superarse rápidamente, porque afecta no solo al cuerpo, sino también a la mente y al espíritu. Adapto la terapia a las necesidades de mis clientes individuales. Es difícil entender "por qué" ocurrió la infidelidad. Antes de que decida terminar su matrimonio, busque asesoramiento, hay esperanza.

Especializado en: terapia sexual, parejas confrontan infidelidad o problemas, abuso sexual infantil, trastorno de identidad disociativo (TDID), violencia doméstica y trauma. Soy bilingüe (inglés / español) y entiendo las dificultades que enfrentan otras culturas para adaptarse al estilo de vida estadounidense. Ofrezco una consulta telefónica gratuita de

More about this group

Hope for Shattered Hearts (9/20/2018 -05/16/2019)

Adult Survivors' Group - Women (25-65) for Women who have experienced sexual abuse, as children or adults. According to Allender, D. (2008), "quick cures never resolve the deep damage caused by sexual abuse." Quick cures are temporary bandages that do not last. This group offers a place of safety, strength and hope for women to face, confront, and deal with the pain, memories, and grief of their sexual abuse experience. It helps women to become victors not merely survivors. The group is a closed group, limited to six participants.
