Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

As a daughter of Mexican immigrants, I experienced first-hand the lack of available professionals who look like me. I made it a goal to be "one of those professionals" to help and support my community.

What are your interests outside of work?

Hiking, spending time with my dogs, and listening to podcasts.

How do you recharge?

I enjoy going outdoors. I believe nature has a wonderful way of recharging me.

Do you have any pets?

I have a 3-year-old French Bulldog and a 6-year-old Terrier Mix. My favorite memory is going to the beach with them for the first time and them freaking out about the sand :)
