Great to meet you!

As a Chicana (bilingual and bicultural) my aim is to privilege cultural contexts in psychological and neuropsychological assessments as well as to promote more effective strategies for change.


My practice currently provides psychological and neuropsychological services for residents of California and New York in both Spanish and English language.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Using a multi contextual and integrated approach to assessment, I help clients understand their cognitive functioning by helping to clarify the brain-behavior relationship. This also provides a comprehensive cognitive snapshot of an individual.

What you can expect from our first session

A neuropsychological evaluation involves a clinical interview, review of records, and testing. Referrals for a neuropsychological evaluation include assessment of the impact of a head injury on thinking, mood, and overall functioning.
