Hi it's Hilda, Are you feeling stuck in the past? Struggling to find a purpose or having healthy relationships? Counseling should be a valuable space for everyone to heal by learning from past experiences, finding new meanings, and enhancing our strengths. I am a bilingual counselor (Spanish/English), and I have been working with adults who have unresolved trauma issues such as PTSD/Complex trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, domestic violence, sexual assault, and secondary survivors. I have been helping clients break unhealthy mental and behavioral patterns by identifying what has not been working and enhancing their own personal strengths.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our session, I will provide you with an empathetic and collaborative space for you to grow. Together we will explore and achieve the goals that you need.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I base my approach in counseling on a Person-Center base using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, and EMDR techniques, since these approaches have been proven to be effective treatments to process trauma and other related disorders.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

The area in which I specialize is unresolved trauma. Traumatic events can make changes in the brain that often cause painful memories to not be processed. With the use of EMDR memories can be reprocessed by stimulating both sides of the brain and facilitating healing. You deserve a safe space to find healing and personal growth. If you need a fresh start please schedule an initial session. I look forward to hearing from you!
