Graduating in 2013, I received my Master's Degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Maryland. The depth of my training allows me to work effectively with a variety of concerns related to mood disorders and trauma. I’m dedicated to promoting emotional health and wellbeing. I am a certified trauma therapist. I use cognitive behavioral, EMDR, trauma-focused, mindfulness and evidence-based practices to help you overcome challenges and gain a sense of greater control in your life. I partner with you in therapy using an integrative and holistic approach to explore how the past might be alive in the present, how your body holds your stories, and how new awareness brings positive change in your emotions, thoughts, relationships and overall life. As a bilingual (English-Spanish) and bicultural therapist, I am familiar with the complexities of growing and adjusting to a new culture, the challenges of raising multicultural children and going through transitional phases.
