Welcome to my profile. Finding the "RIGHT" therapist can feel like a real challenge for most people. I am a Holistic Psychotherapist in private practice since 1986. My healing approach is dependent on the needs of each individual client. The areas of special interest to me are spirituality, relationship and self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, addictions and co-dependency, loss and grief, trauma, dissociation, (not necessarily in that order). I also offer group therapy, and have facilitated groups dealing with the aging process, self esteem/relationship issues, co-dependency, spirituality, grief/loss, and depression.

I provide individual counseling as well as various group opportunities (Spirituality Groups, Coming Out and other LGBTQ Therapy Groups) to assist on your Healing Journey.
I believe that the psychotherapeutic journey is an Inner Journey ~ one in which we're traveling to find that which we have lost ~ in a word, our Selves. While it is usually some form of disillusion - depression, anxiety, relationship pain ~ that brings us into therapy, we discover that we are on a journey to find home ~ a place of safety, of freedom, of rest. Sooner or later, we learn that the home we are searching for is not to be found outside ourselves but, rather, within. If you are ready to deepen in your own journey, I am here to walk with you.

I view the healing process holistically, involving the mind, body and spirit and I am comfortable with the integration of spirituality and psychology.
I desire to provide a safe place for you to explore the issues of anxiety, grief or depression that keep you from living life more fully. You may be struggling with low self-esteem or a loss of identity due to changes, such as loss of a relationship, life transitions, or loss due to trauma. You may find it difficult to move past shaming messages and would like to learn how to find your authentic voice in order to live boldly and with greater self-acceptance.

I believe that therapy is a gift that we give ourselves, and that it is a healing journey. It is an opportunity to explore the barriers in our lives that keep us from fully expressing our thoughts and feelings, in relationships, and in the world. Our work in therapy results in the ability to live a fuller, richer, and more authentic life. As a therapist, I see myself as a guide on your healing journey. My guidance comes from a grounded place of clinical theory, spirituality, compassion, empathy and caring, but it also includes the strength and honesty that is needed to confront those issues that block personal growth. Through the safety of our therapeutic relationship, you will be free to speak of the current struggles in your life, as well as explore the connection to your history. I will be there as a source of truth, hope, and support, while witnessing the full spectrum of your journey, whether it includes confusion, pain, shame, sadness, and anger or joy, happiness, clarity and serenity. Through this process, you will discover the awareness, skills and behaviors to change your life, for now and the future.

Waitlist for new clients only
Hello, I am open and taking new clients! As a person of Hispanic descent and being a 1st generation Mexican-American, I grew up with a stigmatized view of mental health issues and therapy. I heard my family talk a lot about working hard and pushing past traumatic experiences. Most of the time, “pushing past these experiences” meant simply dismissing them— ignoring them. But I began noticing the emotional toll that dismissing difficult experiences had taken in the lives of my family members. I realized that this idea of “working hard” and pushing past traumatic experiences simply doesn’t work to provide growth or healing.

Open and taking new clients! (in person/telehealth) The "ideal client" I imagine working with is an individual that is characterized by having difficulty coping with anxiety, self-esteem, ADHD, relationships, and battling with spiritual concerns. The needs of this client I imagine would be empathy and compassion towards that individual, space for their voice to heard and their story to be respected. I imagine my ideal client would desire "practical" but, "impactful" coping techniques to alleviate symptoms. I imagine my "ideal" client aspiring to regain "control" back into their lives and to feel "empowered."

In a word, my approach to therapy is relational. I am at my best when I am centered, curious and genuinely engaged in my client's experience... exploring, nuancing and understanding their unique perspective and the struggles they are facing. I believe in the importance of finding the right "fit" between client and therapist and it is for that reason that I strive to be authentic and fully engaged in every session. My training, areas of specialization and personal style are well suited for those who might be seeking to go deeper in their understanding of themselves and their relationships.

With over 15 years experience as a licensed psychologist, I think of the therapeutic relationship as a method for understanding the self. To that end, behavior patterns can be explored, internal experience can shift with the movement towards change. Perhaps you are caught in the same cycle and feeling frustrated. You may be adjusting to a life or career transition. Stuff from the past is triggering and you might not understand why you feel the way you do. We can explore and understand the meanings in a safe and creative way.
