My Therapy Style

As a bilingual therapist with over 15 years of experience, I believe that formulating a close working relationship with you is the most important aspect of treatment. I provide a safe space for you to be your true and authentic self without judgment. This offers you the opportunity to work towards being your best self to minimize or eliminate any current distress you are experiencing.

I have experience providing treatment to a variety of populations and mental health issues. I have worked with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, substance abuse issues, life adjustments, and relational problems.

My approach is to help you gain insight and awareness by being a supportive clinician and utilizing empathetic listening and a person-centered foundation. In addition, I will provide specific skills to reduce your current distress to help you meet your goals. I look forward to being part of your recovery process.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health professional to help others in need of support. I come from a community and demographic that lacked resources and services. When services were available, many of the professionals were not people of color nor were they bilingual. I want to inspire and encourage others to become the best version of themselves.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy various sports, concerts, and spending time with loved ones.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I enjoy walking daily and practice deep breathing throughout my day.

What book have you read more than once?

I have read Feeling Good by Dr. David Burns numerous times because it is so helpful for me. I also like to recommend this book to my clients frequently to assist with decreasing their emotional distress.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

I worked for The Richstone Family Center in Hawthorne, CA as an intern. I appreciated the fact that they provided mental health services to anyone regardless of socioeconomic or immigration status. Clients were often seen for treatment at no cost.

How do you recharge?

Spending time with family is one way I recharge. Another way I recharge is by spending time away from family. I enjoy riding my bike alone and taking walks by myself.
