Do you get anxious and start to panic? Are you feeling emotionally overwhelmed or stuck? Have you been through something traumatic that is still impacting you? Are your feelings interfering with work, school, or relationships? Together, we can develop tools and strategies to help you feel better and reach your goals and full potential. I can help you better understand your patterns of thought and behavior and build upon your personal strengths to cope more effectively with life stressors. I am a licensed psychologist with 10 years of clinical experience in private practice, community mental health, and college counseling settings.
I specialize in treating trauma-related disorders, depression, and anxiety in people aged 18 across the lifespan, including older adults. I also work with Latino mental health issues and provide services in English and Spanish. I have advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and integrate mindfulness into your individualized treatment.
Whether you are facing a sudden life change or more chronic stress, I can provide gentle and well-timed feedback, help you to further enhance your skills, and offer guidance in a safe and supportive environment. We can work together to help you better cope with difficult situations and to promote positive feelings about yourself and your day-to-day life.
¿Tienes problemas de ansiedad o ataques de pánico? ¿Te sientes abrumado/a o paralizado/a por tus emociones? ¿Has sobrevivido un evento traumático, pero todavía te impacta? ¿Te es difícil afrontar problemas en el trabajo, la escuela o tus relaciones? Juntos podemos divisar estrategias para que puedas sentirte mejor y alcanzar tus metas. Te puedo ayudar a entender y a cambiar aquellos comportamientos y maneras de pensar que te agobian, y solidificar tus destrezas innatas para que puedas afrontar problemas más efectivamente.
Soy una psicóloga Latina con 10 años de experiencia. He trabajado en consultorios privados, centros universitarios, y de salud comunitaria, incluyendo terapia con hispanohablantes. Me especializo en el tratamiento de trauma, depresión y ansiedad con adultos. Utilizo un enfoque cognitivo-conductual y de atención plena (“mindfulness”) de acuerdo a tus metas.
Sea que estés lidiando con un cambio súbdito en tu vida o con estrés crónico, mi meta es ofrecerte apoyo y un espacio acogedor, donde puedas obtener consejo oportuno y desarrollar tus destrezas. Juntos trabajaremos para que puedas afrontar situaciones difíciles y logres sentirte bien acerca de ti mismo/a y de tu vida.
