Announcement icon Hello, Welcome! I am now offering teletherapy services. Please call so we can continue to be of support to you!

About

I have multiple speciality areas including, abuse, addiction, codependency, trauma, behavioral need and co-occurring disorders. I utilize treatment modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma focused, solution focused brief therapy, DBT and motivational interviewing. In addition, I have also trained as a circle of security facilitator in both Spanish and English. My main focus is to utilize all my training and professional experience to provide you with safe opportunities to discover your strengths in a way that's personal and effective to you and your needs.
I am a bilingual, goal-oriented professional who aims to personalize each and every one of my client's therapeutic experiences. Thus far, I have collaborated with a wide range of clientele of all ages and am comfortable working with most diagnoses.
My clients are met with empathy and compassion throughout the therapy process. My goal is for my clients to complete the therapeutic process with a sense of relief from their struggles and learn new skills for living a resilient, healthy and satisfying life. This is your life and your treatment. I look forward to working with you.
