About My Clients

I work with adolescents and young adults, beginning at age 11. I see clients that are both English and Spanish speaking. I work with people who have experienced traumas, who have symptoms of depression or anxiety, or are having a challenging time coping with stressors and life changes. I also specialize in parnenting and conduct mental health evaluations for clients in immigration proceedings.

My Background and Approach

As a therapist, I use a mix of modalities that best fit the client. I believe that every person is unique, and therefore needs a unique approach to therapy. I believe it is important to not only talk and access our minds, but to also integrate the body into the therapeutic process. I draw from Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory, Mindfulness, Play and Art Therapies, all grounded in a Client-Centered, Strengths-based perspective. I also infuse a social justice lens into my therapeutic practice. I am a certified trauma professional, am trained in brainspotting, and am a certified Circle of Security-Parenting instructor.
