About My Clients

What does "balance" and "wellness" look like, feel like & mean to you? Our own versions of "balance" fluctuate over time & I aim to normalize that! At times, we may need support in redefining "balance"/"wellness" as we work on relationships, experience life transitions, process intergenerational trauma, work on radically accepting themes present in our lives, discuss diet culture, etc. I'm passionate in helping clients nonjudgmentally explore their needs throughout the therapeutic process.

My Background and Approach

My experience working with adolescents, adults, and families stems from working in various residential, partial hospitalization, and IOP treatment facilities. My specialties include anxiety, relationships, addiction, eating disorders/disordered eating, and personality disorders. I also specialize in working with the adolescent & young adult populations, addressing prominent factors which may arise during these particular phases of life, such as academic pressures, life transitions, peer & parent conflict, understanding emotions, and overall exploration of evolving identities, interests, & goals. I completed the Foundational DBT Training through Behavioral Tech, practicing from a DBT-informed approach. I also offer individual DBT skills coaching sessions; coaching sessions focus on learning the DBT skills & discussing individualized application. I am bilingual, providing individual and family therapy in Spanish.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

While I practice from a DBT-informed approach, I believe flexibility is an essential part of the therapeutic process, and I will draw from other therapeutic approaches (within my scope of competence) to support your needs, interests, and preferred learning style.
