My Approach to Helping

I've worked with kids, teens, families, adults, and college students for over 15 years. I also supervise doctoral students training to be a psychologist, so I'm familiar with what works, what helps, and what shouldn't happen in therapy. My number one goal is to form a strong relationship with you, where you can feel heard, seen, accepted, and supported. Good therapy happens when people feel secure and free to experience themselves and emotions differently. I utilize an emotion focused, person centered approach, but I can utilize other approaches if the need arises. I make it a point to seek feedback from you and the work we're doing together, because I believe trust and healing develops when therapy feels genuine and accessible.

More Info About My Practice

I'm a bilingual (Spanish) psychologist with experience treating individuals from various ethnic, racial, gender, and socioeconomic populations. My experience ranges from treating those with severe mental illness to work and relational concerns. I collaborate with others, form strong, trusting relationships, and help create meaningful changes.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Therapy can be hard, and if you've had a negative experience, such as feeling unseen, disrespected, or otherwise not cared for, it can turn you off for good. I've worked with therapy "newbies" and therapy "returnees," those trying to give therapy another chance after a bad experience. My goal is to give you a corrective experience of being seen, heard, and valued, while recognizing that you might not trust me right away.
