7 years of experience
Solution oriented

I began my clinical career in 2016 as a Bilingual Mental Health Counselor for at risk youth. For the past 5 years I have practiced as a School Counselor in a high school setting. I am currently a Connecticut-Licensed Professional Counselor and I am excited to join you in your journey. I am genuine, honest and will meet you “where you are” with the ultimate goal of growth. I pursued the clinical counseling field due to my desire to help others find success through various techniques and strategies. I am passionate about working with people on Life Transitions, Career Changes/Goals, and most importantly assisting in developing lifelong skills to manage and overcome difficult times/emotions. I have found success through a person centered and strength based approach in order to assist you in building the necessary tools to navigate through current obstacles. I can’t wait to join you on your growth journey!

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

At our initial session, we will review treatment goals/areas of growth. Through our journey together we will utilize multiple treatment interventions/strategies to ensure that you reach your goals. It is important to me that you see yourself grow through our work together. If at any point you feel at a stand still, we will reevaluate and attempt new strategies.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My preferred style of treatments are, Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness/Meditation Techniques, Solution Focused Model, Family Systems Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Multicultural Therapy.

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

As a Licensed Therapist, I am here for you in your journey as a judgement free listener. I actively listen while allowing you the space to feel your emotions. Through validation of your feelings, I will empower you to try new strategies and work towards your treatment goals.
