5 years of experience

Welcome! I'm Andrea, your guide on a transformative journey towards mental well-being and self-discovery. My passion is delivering high-quality care via telehealth, making therapeutic support easily accessible from the comfort of your home. I create a secure, judgment-free zone where adolescents and adults can explore and address challenges such as anxiety, depression, dissociative patterns, behavioral issues, and various disabilities. My approach is deeply rooted in personalization; I blend various evidence-based methods to suit your unique narrative. This includes trauma-informed therapies, EMDR, TF-CBT, traditional talk therapy, expressive arts, ERP, and DBT. These tools are not just techniques but pathways to unlock your potential and journey towards a fulfilling life. If you're poised to invest in your personal growth, I invite you to start with a complimentary telehealth consultation. My goal is to connect with you meaningfully, and should our paths diverge, I hope to steer you towards the right direction in your wellness journey. Together, let's uncover the life you deserve – one of healing, understanding, and profound transformation. I hold a master's degree in clinical mental health counseling with advanced training in integrated healthcare from the University of Central Florida and am working towards an MBA from UCLA in healthcare and social impact.

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

In our initial session, my priority is to create a foundation of trust and understanding. We begin by clarifying key aspects such as confidentiality, mandated reporting, and practice policies, ensuring you're fully informed about the therapy process. I'll guide you through how therapy can be most effective when we work collaboratively, emphasizing that the journey is shaped by your active participation and goals. Our conversation will start with a high-level overview of your life story - what brings you to therapy and what aspects of your life are currently flourishing. We'll then delve into the specifics of the challenges you're facing, exploring all relevant dimensions of your well-being. These first two sessions are dedicated to getting to know you and understanding the uniqueness of your situation. By the third session, we'll focus on developing a tailored treatment plan, setting the stage for deeper, transformative work in subsequent sessions. My approach is to ensure that you feel heard, understood, and empowered every step of the way.

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

One of my greatest strengths as a provider lies in my diverse and comprehensive background. With years of experience in telehealth and a multifaceted approach to therapy, I bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to each session. My training in trauma-informed reprocessing therapies, including EMDR and Trauma-Focused CBT, enables me to effectively address deep-rooted issues, fostering significant and lasting change. Additionally, my proficiency in a range of therapies, from talk therapy and expressive arts to Exposure Therapy and DBT, allows me to create customized treatment plans that resonate with the unique needs of each individual. My ability to blend these techniques with a compassionate, non-judgmental approach ensures a safe and nurturing environment for healing and growth. My dedication to continual learning, including pursuing an MBA, keeps me at the forefront of the latest developments in mental health care. This commitment to excellence ensures that my clients receive the most effective, up-to-date treatment strategies, empowering them to unlock their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.

My treatment methods


I specialize in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a powerful therapy method that I have been trained in since 2020. EMDR is particularly effective in treating trauma and the wide array of symptoms that can stem from traumatic experiences. In my practice, I use EMDR to compassionately and effectively address issues such as panic attacks, emotional instability, body dysmorphia, obsessive symptoms, and inattention. My approach with EMDR is client-centered and tailored to each individual's needs, focusing on helping you process and heal from past traumas to find relief and a renewed sense of well-being. I am committed to creating a safe and supportive space where we can work together towards your healing and empowerment.


Since the beginning of my professional practice in 2019, I have been deeply involved in attachment-based therapy. This approach is central to my work, recognizing the critical role that early relationships and attachments play in shaping our emotional world. In my practice, I use attachment-based principles to help clients understand and heal from the patterns formed in early life that continue to impact their relationships and emotional health today. By exploring these foundational attachments, we can uncover key insights into current behaviors, feelings, and relationship dynamics. My goal is to provide a therapeutic space that not only fosters understanding and healing but also empowers clients to form healthier, more secure relationships in their lives.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

In my practice, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been a fundamental tool since I began my professional journey in 2019. CBT is a highly effective, evidence-based approach that I utilize to help clients understand the interplay between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. My focus with CBT involves guiding clients to identify and challenge unhelpful patterns of thinking and behavior, fostering a greater sense of control and empowerment. Through this process, we work together to develop healthier coping strategies and to create positive changes in both mindset and daily life. Whether it's addressing anxiety, depression, stress, or other challenges, I tailor CBT techniques to fit each individual's unique needs and circumstances, aiming to provide not just short-term relief but long-lasting personal growth and resilience.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

Since the beginning of my professional practice, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been a key component of my therapeutic approach. DBT is a powerful and effective method, particularly renowned for its success in helping individuals who experience intense emotions or struggle with relationship issues. My application of DBT involves teaching clients vital skills in mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. These tools are not just theoretical but are practical and applicable in everyday situations. I strive to create a supportive and non-judgmental space where clients can learn to navigate their emotions more effectively, enhance their communication skills, and build a life that feels fulfilling and balanced. Through DBT, I help clients find a path toward healing and personal growth, empowering them to build resilience and a stronger sense of self.

Culturally Sensitive Therapy

In my practice, I prioritize culturally sensitive therapy, understanding the profound impact that cultural background, identity, and societal influences have on an individual's mental health and well-being. Since the start of my career in 2019, I've committed to creating a therapy space that is not only safe and respectful but also deeply aware of and responsive to the diverse cultural experiences of my clients. My approach involves actively acknowledging and valuing the unique cultural narratives each individual brings, and integrating this understanding into the therapeutic process. Whether it's navigating the complexities of cultural identity, addressing the challenges of acculturation, or unpacking the nuances of intersectionality, my goal is to offer a compassionate, empathetic, and culturally attuned space for healing and growth. Through culturally sensitive therapy, I aim to empower clients to explore and reconcile their cultural experiences with their personal journey, fostering a deeper sense of self and a more resilient identity.
