Hola! If you are looking to make a change in your life and ready to heal from the inside out, I am here to help! I will lead you to manage stressors in your life and reach your personal goals. My approach is solution-focused and person-centered. I want to help you recognize your strengths and reach your potential. I look forward to watching you make progress and helping you get to a positive outcome. I understand choosing to engage in therapy is not easy, and it takes commitment. You are already one step closer to healing, self-exploration, and personal growth just by being here. During our time together, you will have a safe and compassionate space to do the work for you to be in a better place. I will actively listen to your needs and accompany you to reach your objectives. I am present to work alongside you in your journey to healing wounds and opening yourself to a healthy life.

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

During our first session, we will focus on exploring your needs and next steps. I will ask you questions about your background, personal and family history, and current challenges to determine our approach moving forward. We will also be able to determine if this is a good fit for you.

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

My strengths are helping others with stress management, anxiety, and increasing self-esteem and motivation. I work with young women going through significant life changes to empower them to heal and have healthy minds and bodies.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I have been using CBT for over ten years to work collaboratively with clients to explore the connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The goal is to help you develop healthier thought patterns and coping mechanisms.

Person-centered (Rogerian)

I focus on assisting individuals with self-awareness and self-direction to make positive changes in their lives by providing a supportive and non-judgmental environment.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

I help clients identify and work towards solutions rather than dwelling on problems by focusing on their strengths, goal setting, coping strategies, and positive reinforcement.
