Message to clients

Hello! I am originally from the U.S., with almost 20 years as a licensed psychologist. I can see you if you are in California or almost any other country in the world via online psychotherapy.

I am Chicana, and having lived abroad for many years as a child and an adult, I am also bilingual (Spanish) and bicultural.

I work with adolescents and adults with a range of emotional, mental health and health concerns, including trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions, identity issues, immigration, psycho-socio-cultural stress, self-esteem, as well as psychiatric crisis. Together, as a team, you and I define what you want to work on, how and to what end, and will address the past only in as much as it it impacts your present and future. We will consider all aspects of your life as a whole, for example, the social, emotional, physical, geographical, relational, and developmental, considering that who we are is always as a whole person within context. If, and only if you wish, I can work in collaboration with others you define as important to your process, such as family members, schools, health care providers, and anyone else important to you.
