I am a Bilingual (English-Spanish) licensed therapist with a passion to provide person-centered, strengths based, trauma informed and culturally sensitive treatment. I am a strong believer in the idea that we have the solutions to our problems within and I encourage clients to do introspection to find their answers. I strive to create a safe, warm, compassionate environment for clients to heal, explore and learn. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages and genders. However, as a working Latina, mother of 3, I have a passion for working with women and minorities. I graduated from the University of New England with a master's in Clinical Social Work and I have over 5 years of experience working with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. I have been trained in person-centered treatment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Informed Treatment, Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused Treatment. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, suicide ideations, trauma, and relationship issues, among others. I also have extensive training and work experience in crisis intervention and suicide prevention.

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

During our sessions my clients find an accountability partner, guidance and support to find their healthier version.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize mainly cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy. I make sure that my client have tools and develop skills to manage their lives most effectively and healthily.

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

My biggest strength is my capacity to build rapport with my clients, making them feel safe and comfortable sharing challenging situations. I provide a safe, non-judgemental and supportive space for them to heal, grow and explore their patterns, needs and wants.
