I work with clients through many different seasons of life. If you are ready for a change and aren't sure how to start, we can figure it out together. I see therapy as a collaboration, one where your voice is heard and honored. My practice is integrative, focusing on mind, body, and spirit. I acknowledge and give attention to the whole person using a bottom-up approach designed to soothe and restore the nervous system while attending to thoughts and emotions.

I believe counseling should be a collaborative approach that can sometimes be messy, challenging, and beautiful as you work to become your best self. As with most life experience, I believe you will learn more in the journey then you will in arriving at the destination. During this journey I believe it's vital that you have a safe space, without judgement, to understand and explore who you are and who you want to become. In my work with you I would be passionate about providing a nonjudgmental, safe place for you to find support.

You wouldn't describe yourself to a stranger as an artist, but you enjoy some form of art making or crafting every now and then, or maybe you simply have a general appreciation of art and aesthetic beauty. We each possess our own unique creative voice, and the ability to use a creative approach to get closer to your goals, and explore new perspectives toward growth and healing. Though precious art experience is not required, an open mind and commitment to the work is strongly encouraged. The art and I will support you.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain" -Vivian Greene. Life can be beautiful but it can also be stormy. Our storms can be anything from anxiety, depression or a traumatic event to situational life stressors; childhood, adolescence, parenting, divorce, a recent move, transitions in careers, etc. You do not have to go through these storms alone. I would be honored to help you identify your goals and help you to learn new coping skills (your umbrella) on your path to achieving your goals, thus learning to dance in the rain.

There are times when life is painful and seemingly without answers, yet what seems most broken in us can be a channel for tremendous growth, even a source of strength we never knew was possible. My own healing through therapy and mindfulness meditation inspired me to pursue an MA in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco -- the first program in the world to blend Eastern philosophical and spiritual traditions with Western schools of psychology. Today, I feel honored to support others on their journey toward healing.

I have a strong passion for partnering with clients in the process of breaking free from the dynamics and behaviors keeping them disconnected from their lives. This could include addressing trauma, shame, family of origin issues, substance abuse, eating disorders, and other issues creating distance in clients' relationships-with others and with themselves. "Surviving" life is very different from truly living it; I feel honored to help others begin to reclaim their lives as they discover freedom from those burdens.

Do you currently struggle with a painful or even traumatic past? I believe in active acceptance as the most effective path towards change. Through a focus on values, clients learn to accept a difficult past towards a vital life in the present. To their credit, most clients have already tried to "get rid of" difficulties before therapy. They typically make the decision when realizing that their well-worn coping tools don't work and they're overwhelmed. Ideal clients are ready to actively engage in a collaborative process challenging them to let go of control/avoidance strategies towards a committed life in the present.

I believe in you. And I believe that everyone deserves to live a life full of meaning, purpose, hope, dignity and respect. We are all more than the worst things that have been done to us, and we are more than the worst things we have done. As a therapist, I create a space where it's safe to explore your story, and where you are encouraged to discover, grow, & give voice to your true self. Also, for those who are interested, I am able to incorporate my training as spiritual director to provide a non-judgmental space beyond ideology, that explores one's spiritual story, in order to provide full body, mind, and soul care.

All of us experience pain. Often, the ways we have learned to cope with the pain and trauma of life can disconnect us from parts of ourself—our emotions, our needs, our wants—in a way that we find ourself in a cycle of suffering. Our therapists provide support in breaking that cycle of suffering by helping to reconnect us to all parts of ourself and to help heal those parts so that no matter what may arise in life, it is possible to find joy and peace.

After working with children and families in private practice and in school settings for many years, my passion is to empower my clients through play. Through their natural language, play, children can learn to express their emotions and start to heal. I specialize in working with children ages 3 years to 12 years but can work with all ages. Common issues that my clients have are ADHD, anxiety, anger, sadness, school phobia, loss and grief, change in their families, and social anxiety.

What is your story? The question seems simple, but it isn’t. Your story is comprised of your life’s experiences from your perspective. Our stories contain themes of joy, excitement love, life and heartbreak, fear, anger and loss. With the demands of daily life such as career or relationships, it can be difficult to engage in being the author of your story. Who is narrating your story? Are negative thoughts dictating your self-image? Is your anxiety controlling your narrative? Or is your sadness causing you to stare at a blank page? Ultimately, everyone deserves a better story.

As a therapist, I work with people who are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or looking to make some sort of change (in life, relationships, unhealthy habits or behaviors, etc.). I work primarily from a relational-cultural approach, which means that my focus is on the therapeutic relationship, authenticity, and perhaps most importantly, collaboration. Content related to the past, present, and future are each considered to be sources of valuable information, as are thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I value creativity and a sense of humor in my work with clients; your experience is yours alone and as such, your treatment will be individually tailored to your needs.

I was drawn to work with children, adolescents and families because of my passion of partnering with others and helping them through difficult times. I work with a wide range of individuals and families who are noticing something isn’t working for them. Alongside clients, I partner to help identify patterns that do not serve them and find new ways of coping and being. I believe in a collaborative approach to find what works for you and what doesn’t serve you. As a bicultural white Cuban, I aim to always provide therapy rooted in cultural humility and with a trauma-informed approach. Currently, I can only provide sessions in English.

My work as a therapist is based on a conviction that our choices and relationship patterns are fueled by our need to experience wholeness and heal the brokenness of our past. This concept lies at the core of attachment theory and is a powerful tool for helping us understand why we struggle with others and with our own internal critic. In my therapeutic work, I leverage aspects of Imago, Strengths, Solution-focused, Internal Family, and Relational-Cultural theories to help clients progress towards deeper and more meaningful connections with themselves and others.
