I work with adults and adolescents who feel stuck in patterns of anxiety and depression, or who are adapting to life challenges. You may feel that you're missing the immediacy and vitality of your life because your energy is sinking into habits of overthinking, arguing with yourself, and struggling with your emotions. You think there might be an easier way, but you're not sure how to begin un-learning years of self-blame and criticism. My focus is to provide quality, results oriented counseling services to individuals, families and couples.

I’m so glad that you’ve chosen to connect with me. I specialize in working with individuals and families who are experiencing a wide variety of complex issues. My work as a clinician has focused on helping children, teens and adults who have experienced trauma throughout their lives. Depression, anxiety, mood disorders, behavioral issues, and relationship issues can be complex, but you do not have to suffer in silence.

Are you trying to find a balance in life? Trying to decrease your stress levels? Are you attempting to find reasoning to your past experiences and choices? Are you seeking support for current life challenges or deeper interpersonal issues such as trauma, depression or anxiety? I strive to help you feel comfort, encouraged and empowered. I aim to help you find the best results for your emotional and mental health needs.
If you struggle to get through your day, burdened by anxious thoughts and feelings of emptiness and futility, you are in good company. Feelings of low self-worth, loss of identity, lack of purpose, disconnection in relationships, or existential/spiritual angst can have many different origins in our past experiences. These emotions force us to come face to face with life's most difficult questions every day. If you are tired of living in your own head, I want to help you sort through your own thoughts and feelings to find those answers and move forward.
Are you looking for a change but feel stuck? Maybe you're looking to break certain patterns in your life or need guidance on how to cope with stress, anxiety, or depression. Creating a more fulfilling life is a goal of many people I have had the pleasure of working with, and the good news is, that healing is possible!

You are NOT broken. You are hurting and you are tired of being so tired. I think sometimes we believe that we have to FEEL confident before we can show action. My very favorite saying is " show up, even when you are scared. Show up. " Do you feel like you or your partner are wondering how you ever fell in love to begin with? Does it feel like you are silently screaming and no one hears you while you walk around with a fake smile? Does it feel like you are white knuckling it through your day and hoping no one ever discovers "the real you?" Do you remember who are you with without anxiety snapping at your heels? You are not alone.

Hola! I'm a bilingual therapist who works with tweens, teens and adults. Sometimes we go through periods in our lives where life feels unfair, and we get stuck in that downward spiral just waiting for the next thing to go wrong. These stressful periods in our lives cause changes in our mood and behavior. This may look like not being able to focus or complete tasks, becoming easily irritable or angry, feeling overwhelmed, worrying about even worse things happening. Do you want to gain control back of your life and be able to enjoy yourself? Or even just become a better version of yourself?
