About My Clients
I serve both individuals and couples with over 17 years of experience. You deserve a compassionate and genuine therapist. Someone to make you feel heard, safe, and re-connected while guiding you through what you need for the life and relationships you want. Many of us struggle with relationships, disappointments, communication, anxiety, depression, addiction, loss, trauma, conflict, emptiness, change, what's going on in the world and much much more.
My Background and Approach
My goal is to give you that space to support and promote lifelong change that will allow you to connect-the-dots, find solutions, and learn tools you can use right away. This will lead to meaningful relationships and foster an overall sense of well-being. We will start with a whole assessment of you and what brings you here. We will learn about the mind-body-brain experience. You will learn important skills right way that will help with symptom relief. You will define the pace and goals. I will walk alongside. Couples will complete a Gottman Relationship Checkup to learn strengths and areas of growth, which will also help develop a common language. You will learn skills based on over 40yrs of research around the globe that you can take with you.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a Latinx American, my father was a drafted Vietnam veteran and my mom worked in the fields and canneries. I have learned the value of lived experience and community based evidence. Having served indigenous community, I have learned to treat the whole person and that therapy is just one feather on the same bird. Me and my family support the BLM and raising POC voices. I have volunteered to run a weekly professional development book club that addresses racial justice topics. I actively raise money towards The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, a topic I’m personally touched by. I believe in therapy and "walking your talk." Yes, I too see a therapist and use the skills that I employ to you. I'd be honored for you to welcome me into your life to help you and/or your partner.
