My Approach to Helping
Starting psychotherapy takes courage and strength one believes they may not even have left or just good ole tenacity -- all before even showing up for the first scheduled appointment!
I am a bi-cultural, bi-literate Spanish/English-speaking board-certified Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 20 years of education, training, and experience in evidence-based direct behavioral health services for individuals, couples, and families.
It is a privilege and an honor for an individual or family to allow me to enter into a warm, trusting, and secure therapeutic relationship with them and to be a guide towards positive change in mind, body, and spirit and to build hope from within that leads to sincere and productive growth.
My theoretical training encompasses cultural and adaptive cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and strategic and structural family therapy modalities.
I recognize my license as an ethical commitment to continue learning and training to provide the most supportive, objective and competent clinical care possible.
