Glad you're here! :) Perhaps your mind has been caught in an endless loop, tirelessly seeking to unravel life's complexities. The burden of uncertainties and contradictions, especially when juggling various roles, might be adding a layer of challenge to your path of self-discovery. It's possible that anxiety, OCD, relationship dynamics, bouts of depression, mood fluctuations, life transitions, questions about your identity and orientation, or even past traumas are part of your narrative. In the midst of these intricate struggles, I offer a guiding light for individuals and couples.
Our journey begins by nurturing self-awareness, delving into the depths of your unique story, and fostering a space of exploration and reflection. As we venture into the realms of your unconscious parts, we'll ignite powerful and transformative transpersonal changes that resonate deeply. Drawing from my background in music, philosophy, and writing, I employ creative insights that inspire profound shifts at your core. As a Latina, I utilize multicultural, personalized integrative approaches to understand you and help you discover your truest self.
Also, I have extensive experience in psychological and clinical research, enabling me to work with a diverse population in Miami and New York City. In addition to my clinical work, I have a background as a college consultant developing a gateway of success to help students achieve a greater vision for themselves and to grow personally, academically, and professionally.
