About My Clients

I specialize working with men. Specifically Hispanic men who struggle with depression, imposter syndrome & grief. As the son of Salvadorean immigrant parents, I'm empathize with immigrant families. As a male therapist whose also been in therapy, I also know what its like to deal with stigma. Thats why I normalize the therapy by having a down to earth conversation while drinking some "cafecito" (In English that means coffee, preferably cafe bustelo).

My Background and Approach

I'm licensed in FL, TX, VA, & UT. I use a Solution-Focused approach, this approach allows us to discover what your desired outcome is in therapy. From there we can explore the pathways to achieve that change. Where you're coming from in this journey doesn't matter as much as where you want to go in life. There's a famous quote that says "I am not what has happened to me, I am who I choose to become".

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a Hispanic therapist I know what its like to deal with people misjudge you because of your background. Thats why I strive to practice cultural humility with clients. Cultural humility provides a space for empathy & understanding when dealing with people from diverse backgrounds.
