I work with clients in helping them free themselves from their past, and into a healthy and productive present. I attain this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan to fit your needs.
I am a bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 17 years of experience. My clinical experience is working with adults and families. I use an eclectic therapy approach that incorporates a variety of therapeutic principles and philosophies. I tailor sessions to each individual's needs.
I’m trained in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) for the treatment of trauma recovery and anxiety. I am also trained in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I incorporate mindfulness into my practice.

I love to travel and try new restaurants.
The one thing I do daily is exercise.
I recharge by getting a massage, or going to the beach for a stroll.
