About My Clients

You are probably sick and tired of hearing the critical voice inside your head telling you that you are not good enough, that nothing will ever change, and that you are the problem. This constant self-criticism is exhausting, and it's hard to believe that things could be different... I am here to tell you that they can, life as you know it can be different. You deserve to set yourself free from feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness. You deserve to enjoy all of what life has to offer.

My Background and Approach

I am a genuine, compassionate and playful therapist helping my clients soothe their pain, regain hope and bring joy back into their lives. hold a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute.  I have been in practice since 2004 working in different settings and different populations. I got licensed in 2011 and opened my private practice in 2013. I have loved every minute of it. I have in depth training in child and adolescent therapy, Gestalt therapy, Mindfulness, Trauma and Biofeedback.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a bi-racial Latina immigrant from Colombia with an open and curious mind. I believe people should love whoever they choose and express their gender identity however they want. I am always reflective about my own privilege and constantly growing in this area. I cringe every time I look back at my own behaviors, beliefs and attitudes that were not in line with an idea of a just and kind society. I also know that this is a work in progress and I am open to the growth ahead. I fear for the targeted communities of the current political climate and wish to provide a safe space in my office for all of those who feel threatened.
