12 years of experience

Hi, I am a first generation Hispanic American daughter of immigrant parents. Growing up as the oldest daughter of immigrants I have had some huge barriers in my life that brought me to become a counselor to help others with difficulties in their lives. I love helping others be able to overcome their barriers and become empowered. I love helping people with anxiety, ADHD, self esteem, life transitions, and marginalized individuals.

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

In the first session I get to know your story, the reason you want to be in therapy and we decide your goals for therapy.

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

I am kind, genuine, and down to earth. I am often able to understand clients struggles in a way that others have a hard time understanding them.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral therapy is used to help a client understand, how their thoughts, beliefs and self talk affect ones emotions and behavior. By questioning these thoughts, and reframing them we can change our emotions and behaviors.
