Do you want to make meaningful and permanent changes in your life? Are you struggling with life stressors, adjusting to changes, problems in relationships, grief/loss, low self-esteem, symptoms of depression or anxiety? Is trauma affecting your day to day life?/ Buscas hacer cambios significativos y permanentes en tu vida? Tienes dificultad manejando situaciones estresantes, adaptarte al cambio, problemas en tus relaciones, perdida/duelo, baja autoestima, sintomas de depresion, ansiedad o algun trauma? My goal is to help my clients get to the root of their symptoms which is why I use practices that have been shown to be effective. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Internal Family Systems (IFS) which are the primary modalities that use. I believe that everyone should have a safe and healing place to work through life’s difficulties. I strive to develop a strong therapeutic alliance by using a client-centered approach. I provide a non-judgemental space where clients can feel safe and empowered to begin their healing process.

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

Sessions are tailored to the client's needs and what they are seeking from therapy. During our first visit, an assessment will be completed, we will start building rapport as well as a care plan which will include the client's goals and objectives. Clients will be able to process what is underneath those symptoms and behavior and develop healthier ways of thinking.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I use evidence-based practices that are effective in improving people's quality of life. I specifically use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and IFS (Internal Family Systems).

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

I am non-judgmental and empathetic. I consider my biggest strengths to be the use of trauma-informed evidence-based practices.
