Great to meet you!

I am a bilingual Latina clinician. I am a mother of 5 and have 3 dogs. I love being in nature and fall is my favorite season. I enjoy practicing yoga with my husband and children. I have over come many life challenges and know first hand how childhood traumas can impact our lives. I can completely empathize and understand the stressors around being a parent and juggling a relationship and career.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I am not afraid to challenge your thought process which can be scary but necessary to start healing. I will gently nudge you out of your comfort zone and towards growth; we will go at the pace you set. Some days will be difficult and I will be here to hold space for you.

What you can expect from our first session

My commitment is to assist You to reach Your highest potential by holding a nonjudgmental space where You feel Your voice matters. Together, we will focus on your strengths to help you manage the difficult challenges that you may be facing. I am here to support you and help you through the journey.
