Message to clients

I know what it's like to try to heal old wounds, challenge limiting beliefs, combat codependency, break old patterns and navigate anxiety. Growing up as a first generation Latina American with little emotional support and guidance was tough. I knew I had to get an education, work hard and get the job, but after that, I felt empty. I often asked myself why, what was missing? Is this it?

Then I discovered therapy. I made the decision to become curious about my patterns, triggers, emotions, family dynamics and started to heal on a deeper level. I didn't want a band-aid fix. I wanted soul happiness and ease. I was finally able to free myself from my old ways. I discovered my strengths and true resilience, and built more tolerance for the difficult moments in life that will always be there.

I personally know the transformative power of this work and want to share it with you! This is why I chose to be a social worker. I’m here to walk compassionately with you through this process, shine a light onto things you may not have noticed, and help you feel empowered to take your next leap forward. I hope to hear from you soon!
