About My Clients

Sometimes we may feel stuck in our relationships; you may be having difficulty with your partner, child or other family members. You may not understand why you are having a particular reaction toward specific stressors (work/school, life transitions, etc.). I honor the current strengths and knowledge you have and team up with you in identify the potential problem, as well as solutions or alternative options, to the area of your life that is impacted.

My Background and Approach

I believe there is power in collaboration and healing can be co-constructed. My work is influenced by Narrative Therapy which honors the client as an individual with their own unique knowledge. Together we learn and understand more about the problems influencing your current circumstance, rather than myself defining and speaking into your life a label that may not fit. Narrative therapy allows me to view the client as a unique individual which provides flexibility to draw from other approaches that may benefit you and your specific circumstance. Additional approaches that I utilize are Emotionally Focused Therapy, Solution Focus Brief Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I was born in Mexico and immigrated to the United States at age 6. Learning to acculturate and how to navigate my identify as a Mexican American has instilled in me a passion toward social justice and racial identity. I personally experienced various stressors as I developed my racial identity. However, in my personal growth I became aware of how these experiences provided me with tools to face future obstacles. I also learned to value the power and healing that may flow from our connection with community, whether it be family, friends or a higher power. Due to my personal experiences, I believe that mental health is not only influenced by our biology but also our experiences, relationships and society.
