I am a Hispanic therapist, who speaks Spanish to help the Spanish community with accessing services. I have experience with immigration services, such as, political asylum letters. Hablo español, y tengo experiencia con servicios de inmigración, como cartas de asilo político.
For me, collaboration, communication, and honesty is key in the therapeutic process.
I draw from different therapy models in my client-centered psychotherapy approach, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I believe it is essential that the individuals I work with feel safe, respected, and heard in order to be able to engage in effective psychotherapy work. I am passionate in helping others create the positive changes they are looking for.
If you are reading this, you have taken the first and most difficult step in obtaining the help you have been looking for. Trusting someone new and making changes in your life can be difficult, but here you will find a safe space where you can be yourself in a judgment-free setting, where I can work to identify and process potential barriers in your life that are keeping you stuck.
My passion in life is in helping others learn how to live their life to its fullest potential, and to find their true selves and the happiness that lies within. Remember, “the fears we don’t face become our limits.” -Unknown.
