Hola! I am a Bilingual Latina Mental Health Professional with almost 19 years of clinical experience working with a variety of populations including teenagers, families, individuals, groups, and couples. I help people who are struggling with life transitions like divorce, co-parenting, changes in the family, anxiety, stress, and increasing overall wellness.

I taught self-defense and fitness for almost twenty years, and I’m very passionate about improving mental and physical health simultaneously. As a licensed clinician since 2008, I have learned from many different experiences over the years. I have provided services in a variety of mental health settings, including a hospital, schools, and in community based mental health agencies. Throughout my career, I have helped others improve their coping strategies, relationships, and lifestyle choices, and I’ve assisted them in overcoming challenges and pushing through dire circumstances. For me, it is through the combination of positive mental and physical health developments where I see my clients improve most and maintain those gains long after we stop working together. In early 2020, I became certified as a Mental Health Integrative Medicine Practitioner in order to further support my clients' health improvements. I believe in having balance in our lives, and that means looking at our psychological, physical, social, and spiritual health. Many of my clients are willing to make changes to improve their mental health through our clinical work AND their lifestyle choices as an alternative to medication. I am also very passionate about helping underserved populations, and I provide various types of services to these populations through my Community Health Project. I specialize in helping clients who are motivated to make changes in order to improve their lives.

I can help you with Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Life Transitions, Relationship challenges, and support you through stressful events that might seem overwhelming right now.
