My Approach to Helping

Finding a therapist you trust is a challenge and scheduling your first session takes courage. You’ve taken the first step toward healing and personal growth. I’m offering you a safe, nurturing and accepting place to freely express your feelings, thoughts and experiences. My vocation is to guide and support individuals like yourself to better understand themselves at a deeper level through the power of compassion and empathy. With commitment to therapy, we’ll explore your relationship with yourself and your relationships with others, addressing emotional and behavioral issues that are potentially holding you back.

I have over 13 years of experience providing mental health services including individual and group psychotherapy to diverse populations. I completed a master's degree in clinical social work with a specialization in mental health from Loyola University Chicago. I have worked across a variety of settings, from non-profit to community clinics and government agencies, outpatient-inpatient hospitals, including Stanford Health Care.

I provide online therapy to adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, difficult life transitions, relationship issues, substance use challenges, all of which may hinder engagement in important relationships: romantic, careerschool, social, family and so on. I utilize evidenced-based approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), internal family systems (IFS), EMDR trained, motivational interviewing in addition to humanistic, systemic and psychodynamic approaches, all of which allow me to effectively address emotional and behavioral issues from diverse backgrounds.

More Info About My Practice

I conduct psychological immigration evaluations: extreme hardship waivers, domestic violence, UT visas and therapy in English and Spanish. My experiences and challenges as an immigrant and woman of color afford me the ability to support others facing cultural assimilation challenges. I’m bi-cultural and sensitive to the needs of immigrant populations.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Therapy is a collaborative process that helps you develop insight, self-awareness and understanding of the root cause of your emotional, mental, or relational difficulties. A trusting and non-judgmental therapist will help you work through your past experiences, process what you are dealing with now, and be a companion in your path to healing and hope. Through your work together, you will regain a sense of agency and freedom, find ways to cope and live a more thriving, meaningful and fulfilling life.
