she/her

My goal in therapy is to provide tools and coping skills that can be used throughout life to maintain a healthy balanced emotional well-being.

My Therapy Style

As a therapist, I utilize an eclectic evidence-based approach where Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Strengths-Based, and Mindfulness are part of my toolbox of therapeutic interventions. I use a collaborative approach and include the values and strengths the client brings to the session. I am bilingual: English and Spanish. I have over 20 years of clinical experience working with adults and families. I have a passion for helping people heal, grow, and thrive. I use a psychosocial therapy approach and tailor interventions based on individual needs.

The therapeutic alliance is very important and I strive to create a safe, nurturing environment where a client can openly share thoughts, feelings, and challenges. As a therapist, my goal is to support the client's journey and use a strength-based, client-centered, Solution Focused approach using evidence-based practices. My goal in therapy is to provide tools and coping skills that can be used throughout life to maintain a healthy balanced emotional well-being.
