Life presents each of us with many unique challenges that can elicit feelings of hopeless, anger, anxiety, and sadness, hurting our relationships with others and our abilities to manage day-to-day issues. Through therapeutic support and guidance, these same challenges can be approached as opportunities for growth and positive change. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment to explore the problems you face and help you find your own unique path toward working through them.
My approach is tailored to your individual needs, strengths and abilities. I speak fluent Spanish, and I provide a culturally sensitive environment. The influences of family, culture, and personal beliefs are of high importance. I have had the privilege of providing therapy since 2006 and have extensive experience treating adults, children and families dealing with depression, anxiety, divorce, stress management, and trauma.
