If you're struggling with anxiety, panic, and stress you're not alone--it can be scary and isolating managing these thoughts. My work focuses on creating a holding space where we can explore thoughts, patterns, family dynamics, and life experiences in a collaborative format where you take the lead.
I work through a trauma-informed approach and I have experience in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT). There is healing in transforming our negative core beliefs (those typically and surprisingly start before age 7) and creating an updated narrative. I hope that together we can create a space of curiosity and gentleness as we unpack thoughts/feelings and learn strategies to reduce stress.

I became a mental health professional to increase access to services for monolingual Spanish speakers and to decrease the stigma of trauma--most individuals have gone through difficult experiences and providing a space to hold it is an honor.
I enjoy spending time with my nephews and nieces and we love karaoke at my mom's house! I also enjoy thrifting and purchasing secondhand when I can! I have a secret obsession with a specific iced chai tea & am starting to write poems again
I recharge by watching movies, documentaries, or shows. I find this is a helpful way to rest my body and mind and serves as a distraction from everyday stress.
