About My Clients

It is so difficult to see your child suffer. You feel guilty and helpless about not having been able to prevent the scary thing that happened. Your child behaves differently since the incident(s): Doesn’t want to play or socialize with others, cries more than usual, appears to be spaced out, has difficulties separating from you, becomes distressed when leaving your side, not sleeping like he/she used to and at times he/she wakes-up from nightmares. Parenting your child has become difficult.

My Background and Approach

I am certified in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and am a former therapist of the internationally renowned UCLA- Stuart House, for the treatment of child and adolescent survivors of sexual abuse. As a bilingual, bicultural and biracial therapist I have sensitivity for clients’ culture and its influence on how they engage with the world around them. Moreover, I am particularly attuned to the importance of spirituality and/or religion in many people’s lives and welcome your beliefs as a tool to help along the journey towards healing. I promote an environment of safety and trust within the therapy space in order to help children and adolescents heal and get back on course towards progressive development in the aftermath of trauma. I help them make sense of their experiences and challenges through education and helping create a mental space for self-reflection. I work together with parents and guardians to help create optimal settings for healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that with the proper tools and support systems any child can heal and thrive in the aftermath of traumatic experiences. I believe that parents play a pivotal role in facilitating a healing environment in the home for their children. I believe parents do the very best they know how to in the aftermath of trauma and have their child's best interest in mind. I also believe that often parents need additional tools and understanding to know how to support their child in the way the child needs it. I believe that we all have the capacity to change, grow and adapt at any time in our lives and that it will enrich our lives and the lives of the future generation. We have the ability to break the chains of intergenerational trauma.
