Hi, I’m Veronica, and my passion and dedication to this work lies in the idea that asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Everyone will experience some frictions or challenges at some point in their life and need support. I feel called to be an empathic guide to people during such times. I work somatically and relationally, meaning I hold that the mind and body are intrinsically connected. I welcome clients to tell their stories, histories, and important aspects of their life. I also invite them to become aware of how they feel as they are sharing with me by tuning into their bodies.

I welcome them to become more conscious of their five senses–to tune into their body sensations, gestures, breath, emotions, etc. Together, overtime, we discover significant and often transformative information about core patterns, beliefs, and ways of relating to themselves, others, and the world. Additionally, I am a passionate advocate for social justice.

My background in somatic psychology, experiential, and formative psychology has enriched my knowledge of how to bring the body and one’s physical experience into the process of therapy. This way of working can be a powerful agent in creating lasting change. I am further trained in DBT, mindful practices, experiential, and formative psychology.
