My Approach to Helping

I provide culturally-sensitive, insight-orienteddepth psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and groups.
I have a passion for helping individuals establish more satisfying, authentic relationships with others and with themselves.

My goal is to create a safe, supportive, therapeutic environment that fosters well-being, healing, and growth. I strive to establish a collaborative, empowering atmosphere that strikes the balance between support and challenge. My style is generally warm, direct, and transparent. I am an empathetic listener and actively participate in sessions by sharing my observations, fostering insight, and sharing practical feedback to help my clients find relief and to effectively address the challenges of life.

I am a generalist with over 12 years of professional experience. My clinical specialties include: TraumaPTSD, Depression, Relational Concerns (trust, intimacy, closeness), Women's Issues, CulturalEthnic Identity concerns, Perfectionism, Over-functioningHigh-Achieving professionals, and Gender Identity concerns. I also specialize in group psychotherapy and offer ongoing, long-term psychotherapy groups.

I welcome the opportunity to provide culturally responsive care to individuals from diverse backgrounds. I have a personal and professional interest in diversity (cultural, ethnic, racial, gender, & sexuality) and social justice issues. I bring an appreciation for cultural differences and welcome the opportunity to work with individuals from diverse backgrounds. My practice is LGBT-affirming, Sex-positive, Poly-knowledgeable and Kink-aware. I am a native Spanish-speaker and can provide services bilingually.

More Info About My Practice

I am passionate about group psychotherapy and I am a firm believer that group psychotherapy is one of the most powerful tools for growth and change. I currently offer several interpersonal psychotherapy groups in my practice. In these psychotherapy groups, there is a strong focus on increasing self-awareness and self-understanding and improving your relationships with others and with yourself.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I am continually inspired by the strength and resilience of my clients. I truly love being a psychologist, and I feel deeply privileged to be entrusted by my clients as I accompany them on their journey towards self-discovery, self-acceptance, and self-growth.

I chose the Lotus blossom as the logo for my practice because the nature of the lotus flower aligns with my view of psychotherapy and human growth. To blossom, the lotus flower must grow through murky, muddy pond water, but despite the muck, it blooms. Though conditions are tough, the lotus heeds the call of the sun each morning, breaks the surface of the water and blooms untouched by the mud; each petal remains clean and pure. Closing at night, it sinks below the water?s surface, only to resurface again in the morning. The lotus speaks the resilience of the human spirit, and like the lotus, I believe each of us can grow through dark times and difficulties. The lotus is also a reminder of the beauty that can come from change, the transformative power of new beginning, and the seeds of potential that are buried in the most unlikely of places.

My Role as a Therapist

My goal as a psychotherapist is to create a safe, supportive, therapeutic environment that fosters my clients? well-being, creativity, healing, and growth. In general, I would characterize my approach as genuine, warm, and analytical. My style is generally informal, direct, and transparent in hopes of demystifying the therapy process. I endeavor to create a safe, trusting, non-judgmental atmosphere and to foster a therapeutic relationship that strikes the balance between support and challenge. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them reconnect with their inner strength and wisdom. I am an empathic listener, but I actively participate in sessions by sharing my observations, offering support, and providing insight and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.

Clients who work with me can expect to focus on their emotion, which means we will seek to accept and deepen an understanding of reactions to various emotions as a means to working through the pain. I may also utilize cognitive, mindfulness-based, and creative arts interventions to find ways to expand your thinking patterns and change unhealthy behaviors. Determining how I adapt my clinical interventions relies heavily on the unique background, presenting concerns, and motivation of you as the client.
