Individual therapy sessions are typically once a week for 45-50 minutes. I provide Individual therapy that is client centered, trauma informed and strength based. It is incredibly important to me that I build a trusting and secure therapeutic relationship with clients so that they can feel safe expressing their emotions, processing difficult past or current events, and get to a place where they can make meaningful changes in their lives. I use a variety of evidence based treatment approaches, specifically tailored to each individual client and their needs.
When working with couples, I focus on their attachment/bond. If couples aren’t communicating effectively it can lead to resentment, hurt feelings, and reoccurring arguments. I use Emotional Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), an evidence based intervention focusing on helping couples learn a healthier way of communicating so that they can become more connected and in tune with one another.
Being first generation is a unique experience that can make life events more complicated and stressful. Particularly during early adulthood, when you are establishing your identity, making career choices, dating, marriage, etc. Your experience is valid and I strive to provide a space where you will feel heard, understood, and learn how to navigate living in between cultures in a way that honors your needs and boundaries.
As a LatinX therapist I am passionate about working with the LatinX community and helping normalize mental health and healing. I provide a culturally sensitive practice where you can feel understood, accepted and work towards making the changes you want.
I use CBT and play therapy/art therapy techniques when working with clients, ages 5-18 years old. My specialty when working with children and adolescents is anxiety, and perfectionism. I also provide parent sessions, when appropriate.
