More About Me

Do you feel like something from your past is holding you back? Like there’s something hanging over your shoulders preventing you from moving forward? Maybe you find that you overreact or act so differently in certain situations. Reaching out for help can be tough, but it’s the first step in addressing what may be preventing you from being most present and engaged in your life now and in the future. There is hope. I want you to know that no matter what you may be facing, I’m here to help.

I have worked with children and adults of all backgrounds and walks of life to address past hurts and adverse experiences. I am bilingual and can work with you to provide counseling in Spanish. I want to listen to your concerns and struggles, build a safe relationship, and help you overcome the challenges ahead. 

When we work together, we’ll focus on your goals and establish a plan to help you meet those goals. My preferred treatment modality is EMDR therapy, which is a strongly researched evidenced-based treatment for trauma and stressor-related concerns. However, I will work with you through an individualized approach and decide together the course of treatment that is best suited for you and your experience. We’ll take a holistic approach and focus on your body’s natural responses to things like trauma, anxiety, and grief. I believe families and other positive relationships are extremely beneficial to the healing process and will work on helping you build those relationships as you find healing. If you wish to incorporate spirituality into your journey, I am more than comfortable walking alongside you with that. 

Together, we’ll work through your challenges and help you overcome whatever obstacles you are facing. I want to help you lift that weight from your shoulders and find freedom. You deserve to be happy, confident, and free from trauma responses, anxiety, and worry. If you would like to schedule an appointment with me, click the button below to get started.
