My goal for all clients is that they leave each therapy session feeling lighter than when they entered. We can do this together by creating practical goals that will accelerate results. I will provide the space to honor your lived experience and explore ways in which you can create the lifestyle you want by starting exactly where you are and with what you already have. Therapy is a commitment to yourself and I have found those that are motivated to engage in the therapeutic process inside and outside of the session work best with what I have to offer.

I believe in an integrative approach to therapy with individually tailored treatments that are collaboratively determined with each client to best address their individual goals.

To be human comes with a range of experiences, emotions, and questions. Therapy can help support us through times of struggle and change. As a psychologist, I am continually honored to connect with individuals in all of their humanness, and to help them connect to and trust that within themselves during their processes of healing and transformation.

Sometimes it is difficult and scary to make sense of feelings, learning how to manage them, and being able to find healthy ways to cope while creating and fostering self-awareness. Therapy is a safe space and a confidential grounding process that through time, consistency and working together will allow you to identify and develop a healthy voice to express thoughts and feelings. I strive to help clients understand their emotional conflicts, behavioral repetitions, and their inner-self by empathetically assisting them in working through emotional difficulties and life struggles. Feeling empowered in being proactive about our health and understanding the steps towards change is a powerful and vital process to feel seen and heard.

In my practice, by face to face sessions or by using online confidential therapy, I work with clients to feel comfortable and to form a bond, based on trust, that will foster a relaxed positive therapeutic interaction. It is important to me that, from the very first session, the client can communicate his or her story and feels heard, so that I can understand the presenting issues, communicate hope, and formulate mutually agreeable goals to achieve in our work together. I have over 18 years of experience treating clients suffering from relationship or financial issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, life transitions such acculturation, job change, or retirement. I enjoy working with individual adults and couples, am fluent in Spanish, and have a good communication understanding of Portuguese. Based on client's presenting issues, my treatment approach varies from concrete problem solving, using mindfulness, or on working to recognize and speak for one's parts following the Internal Family Systems, (IFS), model, EMDR, Hypnosis and/or psychodynamic approaches. I am sensitive to diversity, multicultural, and adjustment situations.

Life can be difficult—sometimes, unnecessarily hard. Everyone suffers but not everyone reaches out for help. People cope in a variety of ways to deal with what life throws at them, but sometimes these strategies are unhealthy and act as a barrier to a meaningful life. I can help you better understand yourself and develop effective ways to improve your response to unpleasant feelings and relationship patterns.

I believe that asking for help is a courageous first step that shows a willingness to embark on a journey of progress and healing. I meet people where they are at—no matter how far along they are on the healing continuum. I look forward to hearing from you so we can begin to work on your healing process together. I now offer weekend and evening sessions.
