I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) therapist with a License in Marriage and Family Therapy. I’ve been trained in a variety of therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Solution Focused Therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and overall take a person-centered approach based on my client's goals.
I’ve spent the past six years working in the community, school-based, and virtual mental health with individuals, families, and children who struggle with anxiety, depression, anger, emotional expression, regulation, career challenges, life transitions, and communication. With my compassionate and proactive therapeutic approach, I will collaboratively create a treatment plan that will focus on enhancing the areas of your life you wish to work on and achieve your desired goals.
