I am a bilingual Spanish-speaking therapist with over seven years of experience working with children, teens, adults, families, and couples. Therapy can be a transformative experience of growth and self-discovery. I believe we all have the power to live the life we truly want. We possess inner strengths that assist us with overcoming life's obstacles; however, overcoming obstacles can be challenging and takes tremendous courage and support.
I assist clients to shed old habits that are holding them back from being their best selves. I focus on developing healthy ways of handling life's adversities. I also assist couples to enhance their communication style to successfully manage conflict, rebuild connection, deepen their friendship, intimacy, and trust in order to restore the relationship. I am passionate about creating a safe place that enables self-love, empowerment, and healing. I hope to support you through the process of being the best version of yourself. Together, we will rebuild and evolve.
