About My Clients

We are all moving at an accelerated pace these days at work and home which can lead us to lose our sense of self -- connection with ourself and others. Relationships suffer due to the inability to set limits and boundaries, or express needs and feelings in a way that can be heard. Many of my clients of all ages seek support with navigating life transitions, relationship issues, daily stress and anxiety, and releasing shame, self-doubt and negative beliefs like "I'm not good enough."

My Background and Approach

For many years, I saw clients and taught Reiki and breathwork before I went to graduate school to earn my Masters in Counseling Psychology at JFK University. I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist currently practicing in Pleasant Hill. I speak Spanish fluently and enjoy working with the Latino community. My approach is holistic including somatic and transpersonal techniques to help my clients increase their self-awareness on all levels of their being – emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. I utilize breath, visualization, body sensations, mindfulness, art therapy and intuitive counseling to guide sessions and support clients with gently increasing self-awareness and creating positive change within themselves.
