My Approach to Helping

You fear people’s rejection. When they ask for help is hard for you to say, “No”, what would they think about you if say “No”? You prioritize other people’s needs before your own. Thus, you end up juggling two or three things at the same time. You feel the tension on your breathing and chest. Then you quietly resent them, sometimes you snap at your family and or friends and then feel guilty. You scold yourself and blame yourself for things that go wrong in your life, even if someone else is responsible you insist on making yourself believe that it was your fault. You do not enjoy your days anymore. Life feels too stressful. You’ve been spending more time by yourself lately. Your body feels heavy, and you just don’t have the energy to get up in the morning. You don’t enjoy life like you used to. You wish you had a different life.

My clients describe me as an analyzer, cheerleader, listener, and a challenger. My approach is a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness. This means that in session you will see me helping you notice your feelings, accept them and talk to yourself with kindness. I will also gently challenge your thoughts, the ones that are not helping you thrive. During our sessions we decide together what goal you would like to work on. Then we will work collaboratively to get you there. Every week you can expect to walk out of my office with a tool especially designed to reduce your specific struggles. I will encourage you to practice it throughout the week. You’ll soon find out that I have many tools to share with you. You will develop the ability to have healthier thoughts and habits that help you stay present, and feel good about yourself. By the end of your treatment, you will have a set of coping skills that will help you navigate life through its natural ups and downs.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

I believe in social justice, cultural humility, compassion, and love. I think everyone has innate goodness. I never visualized I would be so lucky. I am from Mexico. My four siblings and I were raised in a low-income household. I am the first one in my family who became bilingual, and completed a Master's Degree in Counseling. I am not going to lie. Life hasn't always been easy. I have experienced hardship. I understand struggle and I have found my life's purpose helping others, particularly women. Therapy helped me to learn to value myself, develop self-compassion and heal. I became a therapist because I wanted to pass along the benefits that therapy has given me. Some of my family members call me a nerd. I could say that about myself too. I love being curious and learning new things like: Taking drum lessons and listening to new podcasts. I am a dreamer. I am a mom of two children . I love doing yoga, hiking, and chatting with friends. Contact me to learn more about how I can help.
