About me

I specialize in working with teens and young adults typically between the ages of 13-25 who are trying to navigate the unique challenges that come during these critical years of life. Click on the link for my website to book a session!

Hola! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to see if we could be a good team. I currently offer virtual services in English and Spanish.

Adulting. What does that even mean and what is it supposed to look like? Do you find yourself thinking things like “what am I even doing with my life?” “Is this how things are supposed to be?” For teens or parents of teens, the transition from childhood to young adulthood can feel very similar to this adulting process as teens are figuring out what growing up is supposed to be like. As a parent, you may be asking yourself “Where did I go wrong?” “How could my son/daughter [fill in the blank]?” as you notice their mood and behaviors changing. You may notice yourself or your child spending more time alone, angry and/or irritable for “no reason”, engaging in risky behaviors, feeling lost or stuck, or unable to function at school/work or with peers the same as in the past. Truth is, the world today has made it more challenging to navigate and understand these times in our lives than ever before, which has led to higher rates of people struggling with managing and maintaining their mental health.

For many of us, these times in our lives can make some days feel like things are pretty all right and manageable. While other days, you might feel mentally, physically and/or emotionally exhausted, and wondering how you’ll ever be able to get yourself back on track and get this thing we call life right. These feelings and behaviors can significantly impact daily life, and serve as warning signs in telling you it’s time to do something about it. It’s time for you (or your child) to recognize that you are strong and capable of learning, growing and becoming the version of yourself that makes you feel confident and secure in who you are.

As a clinician who recognizes that therapy is not a one size fits all, I bring researched backed skills, techniques and lifestyle modifications offered through different therapeutic approaches to meet you where you are and create a unique, personalized experience that will work for you. You are ready to take that next step, and deserve to begin working on the most important person in your life, you. With my background in guiding teens, young adults and families working through things like life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma or relationships, I am ready to support you through your journey in building a sustainable life you can manage and are proud to call yours. I believe that the relationship and understanding we develop with and of ourselves is the most crucial and influential in shaping how we experience our day to day. Allow me to help you get to know yourself in ways that will allow things like positivity, hope and self-efficacy be a part of your daily life.
