About

As a Latina, I understand the importance of culturally competent therapy, as well as the battles that the Latinx community faces in society and stigma towards mental health. Therefore, it is crucial for me to understand your culture and diversity factors to have a better sense of who you are as a person in hopes that together we can explore ways in which I can help you reach your therapy goals. Throughout my years of practice, I have seen how different issues and symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, and stress can weigh a person down; and obstruct the individual's ability to deal with the present moment.
I’ve seen firsthand how prolonged anxiety and trauma can impact an individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual state. I have witnessed how past emotional suffering plays a vital role in a person’s ability to work through current issues.
Nevertheless, for a person to effectively cope and overcome present obstacles, they must be given a safe place where they can express past struggles. Drawing on a variety of techniques, we can work together on a treatment plan that fits your needs, goals, and values for you to achieve your potential and lead the life that you desire.
Como latina, entiendo la importancia de una terapia culturalmente competente, así como las batallas que enfrenta la comunidad latina en la sociedad y el estigma hacia la salud mental. Por lo tanto, es crucial para mí comprender su cultura y los factores de diversidad para tener una mejor idea de quién es usted como persona con la esperanza de que juntos podamos explorar formas en las que pueda ayudarlo a alcanzar sus objetivos de terapia. A lo largo de mis años de práctica, he visto cómo diferentes problemas y síntomas de depresión, ansiedad, trauma y estrés pueden agobiar a una persona.
Estos problemas pueden obstruir la capacidad del individuo para hacer frente al momento presente. He visto de primera mano cómo la ansiedad y el trauma prolongados afectan el estado emocional, mental, físico y espiritual. He sido testigo de cómo el sufrimiento emocional del pasado juega un papel en la capacidad de una persona para resolver los problemas.
Para que una persona pueda enfrentar y superar los obstáculos presentes de manera efectiva, se le debe brindar un lugar seguro donde pueda expresar las luchas pasadas. Basándonos en una variedad de técnicas, podemos trabajar juntos en un plan de tratamiento que se adapte a sus necesidades, objetivos y valores para que pueda alcanzar la vida que desea.
