  • Welcome Message

    Men (especially Latinx and those of color in general) do not seek mental health support for an array of reasons such as cultural stigma, the lack of services aimed at addressing their needs (how many places offer support groups for new fathers?), and generationally engrained beliefs that men do not talk to others about their issues. Sadly, when men account for 75% of all suicide victims, we know a problem exists that's not being addressed. That's where my work begins. My approach to therapy is simple....you come to your visit, discuss your concerns with me as I listen, and I give you feedback on how to deal with it. I tell you what you NEED to hear, and now what you think people tell you that you want to hear. Even though I take my job seriously, my wit and humor are ways I remind clients I am REAL and not the sweater vest wearing vest therapist you see on TV. Modern day problems require a modern day therapist to address them.
    I am trained in several modalities such as EMDR and TF-CBT that have been proven to be effective to help client's deal with an array of issues such as anxiety, depression, and trauma. I accept major insurances as well as out of network benefits, and private pay options. Your journey towards healing and a fulfilling life begins with a call or email. Don't be a prisoner of your pain any much longer.
