  • Welcome Message

    Hello! Hola! Welcome!
    Taking the steps to seek help and invest in your mental wellbeing is one of the bravest things that you can do! I will accompany you though the journey and meet you where you are. As a Latinx professional, I specialize in providing culturally competent, solution focused, trauma informed psychotherapy with transitional youth (18-25), adults, and older adults with diverse values, beliefs, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
    I have broad experience working in Anxiety, Depression, Grief and loss, Life transitions, and Domestic Violence.
    In addition, I work with Latinx professionals and professionals of color navigate Imposter syndrome, First generation issues/conflicts, Immigration issues, and Generational Trauma, Career issues/Conflict, Stress management and difficulty balancing work and life stressors.

    Through the use of various psychotherapy methods and collaborative treatment measures, my patients develop life-changing habits to help them cope with any of life’s various obstacles. My therapy sessions are designed to dissect personal issues and provide patients with effective tools to help them see the glass half full instead of half empty.

    Researched based Therapy Modalities uses include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Motivational Interviewing.
    Feel free to contact me with any questions! I offer a free brief phone consultation. During this consultation we can discuss what you are currently struggling with and how you feel I might be able to helpful you.
