Note: I currently have a waitlist and am not accepting new clients*** If you have taken the first step and are reaching out for support, I will strive to help you reach your goals in a supportive environment, free of judgement.  I believe in the strengths of every person that walks into my office and consider it an honor to work with people on their journey to healing and self-improvement.

I have also completed Level 1 training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and am a Prepare/Enrich certified facilitator. I am bilingual in English and Spanish.
