Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-focused
I graduated from San Diego State University and obtained a BA in Psychology and an MS in Counseling. I've gained experience working with families and adults. I also have experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, ADHD, grief, and loss as well as other emotional concerns. I implement Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy to help individuals restore their overall well-being and functioning. I have a great passion for bringing healing to individuals who have been through traumatic and stressful experiences. I have experience strengthening and supporting individuals who were facing traumatic events during their careers in the military. By facilitating individual therapy, I have developed the essential skills of being supportive, empathetic, and culturally sensitive with a focus on helping families to achieve their treatment goals. I am a bilingual speaker in both English and Spanish.
MS - Counseling, San Diego State University
I became interested in the mental health field because I realized how important it is to help individuals address their mental health challenges to make a positive impact in our society and improve their quality of life.
I enjoy a variety of healthy activities such as going for walks, hiking, spending time with friends and family members, as well as sightseeing.
Meditation has been a helpful technique that has helped me support my mental and emotional well-being.
Traveling and spending quality time with my family has helped me restore my ability to be fully present in my daily routine and activities.
