Life can get very complicated and challenging sometimes. My commitment to you is to provide a supportive place for us to collaboratively explore the challenges you are experiencing and the areas of your life you wish to change. If you are struggling to come to terms with your past, or feel as if something is preventing you from living the life you want, I invite you to explore this from a place of curiosity and without judgment. As a bilingual and bicultural therapist, I strive to support individuals, couples, and families who are experiencing difficult life events.
My areas of specialty include dealing with interpersonal conflict, loss, divorce, trust issues, chronic illness, depression, trauma, anxiety, substance abuse, and other life stressors that can be overwhelming. I am here to support you on your journey in reestablishing a connection with yourself.

I love to go for ocean swims, paddle with dolphins and bike to beautiful locations along the coastline.
I start each day by honoring myself through movement.
The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy, I love how each character is so relatable in our journey of life. Each page contains beautiful illustrations that reflect mindfulness, connection, and friendship.
I recharge through yoga, mediation, and regular exercise outdoors. I also enjoy anything creative that gets me in a meditative zone like - painting, knitting, or baking!
I have three dogs and one cat. I love my fur babies; they show me true unconditional love every day!
