My Approach to Helping

Welcome! I’m a Southern California Chicana living and working in the Bay Area. I have been fascinated with the intersection of psychology and culture from an early age. This interest propelled me to pursue my doctorate degree in clinical-community psychology specifically because of its focus on the way a person’s various identities intersect within their lives and the therapy room. I know what it’s like to not always be represented in the “mainstream” approach to psychology and mental health, and I will not take for granted your own unique experiences and identities in regards to mental health and therapy.

I work with adults and adolescents using a combination of CBT and ACT, two forms of therapy that research has shown are very effective for creating lasting change. Despite my foundations in cognitive behavioral therapy, I do not ascribe to a “one size fits all” method of psychotherapy. I use my training in various therapeutic modalities including feminist therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing and interpersonal therapy to find the best approach to help you with your concerns. Many people I have worked with have found it helpful to examine the reasons behind their negative thoughts and emotions, and we will also explore the actions you can take to promote wellness and tranquility.

More Info About My Practice

I help adolescents and adults become "unstuck" from the places that have been affecting their feelings and thoughts. I also provide an empathic, validating place to talk about anything that has been on your mind, a supportive environment for those of you who want to grow, and a teaching environment for anyone looking to learn new habits and tools to promote well-being.

My Role as a Therapist

I am thrilled to be able to work collaboratively with you to achieve your goals. I balance teaching with listening, understanding with accountability, and support with gentle nudging when either is needed to get you to where you want to be. I am always open to feedback on how my approach is working for you.
