My Approach to Helping

Do you feel overwhelmed by events or emotions? Do you feel unhappy and anxious about your future? Do you compare yourself to others while thinking everyone has it together but you? Or, perhaps it's become hard to tackle the day-to-day and you're longing to reconnect with the person you used to be. You have probably tried to identify the source of your stress, anxiety, sadness, insecurity or lack of confidence but feel lost. Or maybe you do know where your feelings are coming from but thought this was a phase that would eventually pass. Whether it’s a temporary or a more lingering feeling of loneliness, depression or anxiety about where your life is headed, I know exactly how this feels, and I also know how to help you achieve the satisfaction and happiness you deserve. Having overcome challenges with self-esteem and emotional problems, I know firsthand what it takes to get to the other side. My experiences have inspired me to provide my clients with the tools they need to overcome their own struggles.

Now, imagine yourself feeling empowered, having the ability to take on whatever challenges come your way. Envision a life filled with happiness, satisfaction, confidence, and peace. Imagine what it would feel like to find your voice. Let me guide you to become the best version of yourself. I assure you, you’ll love seeing the endless possibilities.

Whether you know exactly how you want your life to shift or, you know only that you want to feel better than you do now, I can help you move forward and guide you through the process of living the life that feels best for you. I will meet you at the stage you are at right now and we’ll take it from there. My goal is to help you go from where you are to where you want to be. Evening appointments are available. I speak English and Spanish.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Many people (wrongly) think that therapy is only for people with severe mental health issues or people at the brink of collapse. Or, they assume that therapy is a glamorous hobby of the rich. These misconceptions often prevent people from enjoying the positive, life-changing benefits that therapy brings. At some point, you have experienced stress, felt anxious, overwhelmed, sad, or depressed. No one is immune to these common, human conditions. Sometimes, we can work these issues out on our own by changing our lifestyles, reading books, taking classes, or through talking to loved ones. Other times, our issues start to overwhelm us and negatively affect our lives, relationships, and work. In severe cases, anxiety, depression, and stress can put our health and lives at risk. Therapy is often the most effective route to overcome emotional and behavioral issues that keep you from living the life you want. Mental Health Therapists are experts in how humans process thoughts and emotions. Therapy can help you navigate your feelings, build better behaviors, and relate to your thoughts differently so you can live the life you want. Therapy teaches you skills to deal with every-day life problems and leave you with long-term, healthy coping strategies that you can use when issues pop up. Whether you want to learn tools to manage stress, build skills to be a better leader, or treat anxiety or depression, a therapist will help you do that. A good therapist is like a coach for your mind and your life.
