My approach in treatment is to help women identify and use their strengths as a catalyst to get unstuck, move forward, and find balance, meaning, and purpose in work, family, friendships, faith, and all other areas of their lives. I believe in first establishing a safe space and a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients so they can feel understood and valued in our collaborative work. I come along their side with practical and effective tools they can learn and practice to cope in healthy ways with their challenges and pain.
I am trained in several evidence-based treatments approved by the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health that focus on the healing of trauma, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relational, and behavioral problems. I specialize in the treatment of women’s issues, premarital, marriage enrichment, and parenting support. I help clients learn and practice positive skills such as communication, positive parenting, healthy boundaries, problem-solving, conflict-solving, stress management, self-care, and more.
Moreover, I am fluent in Spanish and have experience working in the Hispanic community assisting children, families, and individuals gain harmony in their lives and increase their functioning at work, home, or at school. I am also, culturally competent on working with Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), and Asian American and Pacific Islander AAPI.

Asking for help can be difficult. Realizing you need to make a change or “unlearn” some habits and ideas that are not serving you well can be a bold brave move. I teach individual and couples skills to help them through overwhelming feelings and make lifestyle changes to interrupt those destructive cycles. Whether you need to process traumatic thoughts or knock down those mental barriers that have been holding you back from your own personal goals and relationships I would like to help you explore those needs.
I believe the therapeutic process involves coming along your side and supporting your experience as you learn more about yourself and gain more power over your thoughts and your actions.
My specialties include working with Women’s issues, young adults, teen girls, couples counseling, family planning, premarital counseling, prenatal support, post partum, parenting strategies, juvenile delinquency, social anxiety, self esteem issues, communication/ relationships issues, family related changes and conflict, transitions in life, suicidal thoughts/ crisis planning.
My primary orientation is psychodynamic and I use a variety of evidence based approaches (CBT, Solution focused , TF CBT, positive parenting strategies, mind body techniques). I ultimately believe that our physical needs (sensory, nutrition, sleep, exercise) also have to be met in order to manage emotional and psychological needs. It’s often the small habits we are less aware of that effect our overall discomfort on a regular basis eventually leading to a spectrum of symptoms related to depression and anxiety.
