Are you feeling lonely and isolated even when you are surrounded by thousands of people? Do you feel you lack meaningful relationships with your friends and/or family Relationships can challenge and take the best of us. Building them requires effort, patience, consistency and hard work but we are taught that loving and connecting with others should be a “natural” process that comes easy to us, and that should be instantly pleasurable and forever long lasting. In reality, relationships change, they evolve and transform and sometimes we feel “lost” and left behind. If you feel like this resonates, you are in the right place.


In sessions, I help people search for clarity about what they want and need in their relationships in a safe and trusting environment. I help people identify what works for them and what does not. I also help people figure out how to create healthy connections in their social and romantic lives. Let me help you find a way to feel more fulfilled.


I am a bilingual/bicultural Spanish speaking Psychotherapist with over 15 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families of diverse cultural backgrounds. I have been trained at the Ackerman Institute for the Family and use different methods within my approach, mainly cognitive-behavioral, relational and strengths based. Call me today.
