As an Afro-Latina bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family therapist, I am a compassionate guide specializing in supporting first-generation immigrant adults and couples. With a deep understanding of the complexities surrounding cultural integration, family dynamics, and relationship challenges, I offer a safe space for exploration and growth. Drawing from my own immigrant experience, I weave empathy and cultural sensitivity into every session, fostering resilience and connection.
I help adults and couples explore issues important to them and to reexamine cultural beliefs, values, and personal ideology. I serve as a co-pilot with my clients and support them to drive their own process, to further create an awareness of the influence that life stressors have on them both as individuals as well as in their relationships.
I support and guide my clients with the use of several different evidence-based modalities and believe in the systemic view; we are all interconnected, and our own reactions and responses affect our relationships with others. I work with clients to help them define their life stories and to begin seeing and living their lives as they want.
