About My Clients

In such busy times you may feel tired of doing things for everyone else or doing what others want you to do, while ignoring your own needs. Maybe you had to grow up very fast, taking care of other people's needs long before you were old enough to take care of yourself. You could be reaching your limit. Putting everything and everyone else first can lead to feeling exhausted, overburdened, or taken for granted. You do not have to do it all on your own to have a more peaceful and happy life.

My Background and Approach

I became a therapist because I know how important it is to be supported and feel good about ourselves. I've learned that we can overcome difficulties when we have someone to listen with attention, care and concern. I believe with kindness and sensitivity we have the ability to gain clarity and find fulfillment within. I am dedicated to helping people slow down, notice and honor all positive changes whether small or large. I believe by taking the time to get to know ourselves better, we chip away at blocks and rebuild inner strength. Each step helps us believe in ourselves, take care of our own needs and bring ease to saying no without guilt. Through working directly with people in politics for over 10 years, followed by my role as a therapist in community mental health, I truly understand the power of building strong, solid relationships with patience and understanding. As a bi-lingual therapist I strive to help empower Latinx people to find balance between cultures.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about inspiring people to generate ideas, adapt new habits and let go of what's holding them back. I understand how uncomfortable it can be to ask for the help that you need. You can have happiness and peace of mind. You don’t have to do it alone, I can support you in your journey of building inner strength through self-discovery and self-growth towards a better version of yourself. Now is the time to connect.
