Accepting Clients

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Bronx, NY

About My Clients

Often times, life can be stressful. Daily challenges may make you feel like you are on a never ending hamster wheel. The stress and anxiety can make you feel alone in this concrete jungle. I can help you by providing the support and tools to help live the life that you find comfort in. By using an eclectic approach, I work with children, teens, adults and families to assist in treatment with difficulties such as Anxiety, Depression, and other behavioral issues.

My Background and Approach

I utilize an eclectic approach, going off of people’s needs and goals. For me, progress involves taking a step forward in achieving those goals. Clients can expect sessions to be tailored specifically to their needs, whether that involves reflective work or exercises to practice in between sessions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Being first-generation born and living in the South Bronx, mental health was not a topic discussed in many households. It was a difficult conversation to have when you did not have the necessary tools and support. In my career, I’ve often worked in settings where there was a disconnect to the population served. I have spoken with people about their experiences with therapy who have told me that they could not connect with their therapists because of their lack of cultural competency. My goal is to continue to bridge the gap between access and mental health normalization in everyday conversations. I hope to practice through a lens that explores multicultural issues and how our upbringing creates and shapes the people we are today.
