About me

I am a bilingual (Spanish) therapist who is passionate about helping couples and families thrive in healthy relationships and helping individuals cope with trauma/PTSD, adjustment issues related to disabilities/medical conditions, and anxiety.

Do you feel as if your life has a “before” and “after?” Do you feel stuck, like you can’t shake what has happened to you or your relationships? I would love the opportunity to help you make sense of your story and build your path forward.

I am a Licensed Associate Counselor and Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I graduated from John Brown University with degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy. I have experience working with teenagers, adults, and couples with trauma/PTSD, couples, relationship issues, adjustment issues related to disabilities/medical conditions, and anxiety. I am Latina and can provide sessions in both Spanish and English – I want you to share your story in the language you feel understood in. In order to best help you walk through your journey I like to incorporate CBT, person-centered therapy, EMDR, and level 2 training of Gottman method couples’ therapy to provide you or you and your partner with research-based interventions tailored to your needs.

My goal is to provide a warm and nonjudgmental environment where you feel safe and feel supported to begin healing. I look forward to the privilege of working with you.
¿Sientes como si tu vida tuviera un "antes" y un "después"? ¿Te sientes atascado, como si no pudieras deshacerte de lo que te ha pasado a ti o a tus relaciones? Me encantaría tener la oportunidad de ayudarte a dar sentido a tu historia y construir tu camino hacia adelante.

Soy consejera licenciada y terapeuta matrimonial y familiar licenciada. Me gradué de John Brown University con títulos en Consejería Clínica de Salud Mental y Terapia Matrimonial y Familiar. Tengo experiencia trabajando con adolescentes, adultos y parejas con trauma / trastorno de estrés postraumático, parejas, problemas de relación, problemas de adaptación relacionados con discapacidades / condiciones médicas, y la ansiedad. Soy latina y puedo ofrecer sesiones tanto en español como en inglés - quiero que compartas tu historia en el idioma en el que te sientas comprendido. 

Con el fin de ayudarle mejor a caminar a través de su viaje me gusta incorporar la TCC, la terapia centrada en la persona, EMDR, y el nivel 2 de la terapia de parejas método Gottman para darle a usted o usted y su pareja con las intervenciones basadas en la investigación adaptada a sus necesidades.

Mi objetivo es darle un ambiente cálido y sin prejuicios donde se sienta seguro y se sienta apoyado para comenzar a sanar. Espero tener el privilegio de trabajar con usted.
