About My Clients

Life can be challenging and overwhelming for everyone. My specialty is working with kids and their families to strengthen relationships. I work with parents very closely in order to help them understand their child’s behaviors and how to attune to their needs. I enjoy working with folks of all backgrounds, but am especially passionate about working with folks from the Latino/x community. I also enjoy working with adults in individual therapy as well!

My Background and Approach

I am trained in various therapy models (Theraplay and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy) and utilize an integrative, trauma-focused framework. I always think of my clients as multi-faceted, keeping in mind their culture, identity, immigration history, trauma, attachment, family history, development, and relationship patterns.I have a warm interpersonal style, with a balance of humor and direct feedback. I believe that if you are looking to psychotherapy as a mode to improve something in your life, that treatment must be goal oriented. We collaborate on the “what” needs improving and “how” we’ll know that things are better.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, it is important for me to work with and understand where my clients are located in society. Discussing issues of power and privilege, racism, and other social barriers are an important part of my practice.

  • Christianity
