I am deeply committed to guiding people towards a more peaceful and fulfilling life, helping them to use their own strengths and internal healing mechanisms to move past unhelpful blocks. I use a whole person approach and am flexible and adaptable to the various issues that are troubling to the individuals I see. I provide therapy both in English and in Spanish, delivering respectful and quality care tailored to the specific needs of each person. My hope is to alleviate suffering and increase overall well-being. I have extensive experience working with adults across a variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, stress, self esteem issues, parenting, relationship problems, trauma, grief, physical symptoms, academic and work-life concerns, community violence stressors, and substance issues. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Utilizing therapy is the opposite of weak, it's a sign of health and strength. Therapy is a type of conversation that is different from talking with friends and family. We are social creatures who are better able to move past blocks when we get objective feedback from another person interested in helping you get the most out of life.
