I am an LSWAIC and MSW with specialized training in addiction, EMDR, and bilingual in Spanish. I provide individual therapy under clinical supervision. With over five years of experience working with youth, I work with individuals facing challenges such as trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and behavioral concerns. I aim to create a space of unconditional support and empathy, meeting my clients where they are to build a strong collaborative relationship.

It is important to me that you feel heard in a non-judgmental approach. I do not see myself as an expert on your life but merely someone crossing paths with you in your healing journey. Mental health therapy is about finding your authentic self and embracing suffering, an organic part of life. My approach includes building a genuine connection with clients so that they can safely have difficult conversations, resolve conflicts, and experience their authentic selves.
