My Approach to Helping
"Are you struggling with your kids? Feeling frustrated? Worn down? Letting the caregiver guilt creep in? Being a caregiver can be exhausting! And if you’re a caregiver of a child with developmental disabilities, it’s even easier to become depleted. You are not alone. Your experience is valid, and it CAN improve. I want to help!
I am a trauma informed, Mexicana, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with over 20 years of experience providing meaningful support to youth and families. I specialize in working with families, specifically with autistic children, and individuals with developmental disabilities. My passion for this work lies in offering psychotherapy to children, teens, adults, and families utilizing a strength-based approach. I want to help my clients create changes that make their lives feel more manageable and ultimately, more enjoyable. I draw from a variety of psychotherapeutic modalities to tailor my work and interventions to each individual or family I serve. Your needs inform our time and the course of our work.
As a trained Brainspotting therapist, I can offer the option to engage in brain and body-based therapy to help you address and process experiences of trauma. I also have extensive experience in parent education, behavioral challenges, life transitions, anxiety and depression.
Together, we will create a space to work on strategies and develop tools that allow you to better understand and deal with the root causes of challenges and life stressors. Let me help you to ease your situation, reach your goals, and rediscover your joy!
