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 12 year 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 anxiety, depression, trauma, difficult life transitions, relationship issues, substance use challenges, grief, all of which may hinder engagement in important relationships: romantic, career school, social, family. I utilize evidenced-based approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), 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 am bicultural and bilingual. I conduct therapy in English and Spanish. I was born and raised in Mexico. My experiences and challenges as an immigrant and woman of color helped develop the ability to support others facing acculturation and assimilation challenges. I’m sensitive to the needs of immigrant populations. If you are interested in working with me, please contact me to schedule a complimentary 20-minute session.

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?re 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, change, and grow, and live a more authentic, meaningful, and fulfilling life.
