Not accepting new clients.- - - Attending therapy is one of the biggest acts of self-care and self-love you can give to yourself. My practice is a space for respect, acceptance, hope, and growth; I focus on each client's independent goals, understanding their own process and challenges, and working on a collaborative dynamic to meet attainable and realistic goals. I am a Bilingual licensed mental health counselor, with more than 12 years of experience as a psychotherapist.
I specialize in Trauma and addiction disorders, however, I am trained in the clinical field to treat various mental health needs, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, ADHD in children and adults, weight-management assessments for clients undergoing Bariatric Surgery, adjustments, transitions, family/couples issues and more.
I enjoy working with all ages, I currently see kids, teens, and adults; offering individual counseling and family therapy when appropriate. Feel free to call or email me to have an initial conversation and explore if I might be a good fit for your needs.
