About My Clients

We all experience a little depression or a little anxiety within our life. It's normal to have these feelings. But when these feelings are so intense that they start impacting the way that we are living our lives, this is where therapy can help. Exploring current behaviors from an empathetic standpoint can help you feel guided and heard through your therapeutic process of healing.

My Background and Approach

I have been in the helping profession for over nine years, working with children, teens, adults and providing parent coaching using evidence-based practices. I explore things from a multicultural lens which allows me to understanding the client's needs through active listening, empathy, and from a non-judgmental standpoint. I specialize in EMDR, CBT, Solution Focused Treatment, and Mindfulness, allowing me to focus my client's needs in the here and now to help create trust within the therapeutic relationship. I have extensive experience with trauma treatment, anxiety, depression, mindfulness, substance abuse, and parenting. My speciality includes exploring through an EMDR lens to desensitize and reprocess negative cognitions. Why re-traumatize if you don't have to? EMDR is different from talk therapy, making this treatment incredibly unique! I received my Master's of Arts in Counseling from Loyola Marymount University in California. I am licensed in both California and New York .

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My work aims to understand the underlying concerns that are causing stressful situations and mal-adaptive behaviors. Through active listening, empathy, and from a non-judgmental standpoint, my hope is that we can work together to help create trust within the therapeutic relationship. The experiences that I have gained volunteering on the Suicide Prevention Hotline, various shelters in Los Angeles including the Downtown Women's Shelter, and being a Latina myself allow me to see from a multicultural lens, offering various perspectives to your personal experience. If you would like to learn more about me and us working together, please do not hesitate in sending me a message. I would love to answer any additional questions to make this process the most comfortable as possible.
