About

I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I was born in Chicago, Illinois, but grew up in Mexico City. I speak Spanish fluently, and I am bicultural (Mexican/American). I understand that different cultural dynamics can affect a therapeutic relationship; therefore, I am mindful of the importance of providing non-judgmental therapy. I have years of working in multicultural clinical settings that deal mostly with trauma, providing me with extensive trauma training and experience in treating individuals with a history of post-traumatic stress disorder, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. I am a trauma-informed therapist trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, as well as being a Certified Anger Management Specialist. I can provide anger management classes for groups or individuals mandated by the court. I believe in utilizing evidence-based interventions to the best of my ability with the hope of helping you overcome and cope with grief or loss, trauma, and any other struggles you might be facing. I believe that every living being has the fundamental right to be loved, respected, and cared for. My goal as a therapist is to be able to provide quality adult mental health care regardless of race, income, religion, or sexual identity. (Español) Tengo una maestría en Trabajo Social Clínico de la Universidad de Illinois en Chicago. Nací en Chicago, IL, pero crecí en la ciudad de México. Hablo español con fluidez y soy bicultural (Mexicana/ Americana). Entiendo que diferentes dinámicas culturales pueden afectar una relación terapéutica, por lo tanto, soy consciente de la importancia de proporcionar la terapia con la mente abierta. Tengo años de experiencia trabajando en ajustes clínicos que tratan sobre todo con etapas de crisis. También tengo experiencia en el tratamiento de personas con una larga historia de trauma, depresión, ansiedad y otros trastornos del estado de ánimo. Creo que cada ser vivo tiene el derecho fundamental de ser amado, respetado y cuidado. Mi meta como terapeuta es poder proveer cuidado de salud mental de calidad para adultos independientemente de raza, ingreso, religión y identidad sexual. Proveo a personas sin seguro de salud con tarifas razonables, así como a individuos que prefieren no usar su seguro de salud para el tratamiento.
