I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) licensed psychologist and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional who provides individual telehealth mental health services for older adolescents (16+) and adults across the state of California. I am dedicated to helping my clients find meaning, strength, and build resiliency.

Colores Therapy and Wellness provides telehealth individual mental health services for older adolescents (16+), young adults, and adults experiencing depression, stress, and anxiety due to past history of trauma, chronic health conditions, relationship issues, work stress/ burnout, current events, family/generational issues, and racism. Colores Therapy and Wellness offers humanistic, holistic, integrative, and evidence based therapy. We will work on building introspection into your thoughts, your body, and the world around you, as well as focusing on empowerment and managing your symptoms.
