I am a Latina therapist who specializes in working with clients who have a history of trauma such as survivors of crimes, immigrant trauma, and those experiencing grief. As a child of Mexican immigrant parents, I firmly believe there is beauty in incorporating our values and culture into our healing, so I’m here to aid you in identifying what parts of your culture serve you. I strive to create a comforting space for individuals who are starting or continuing their journey into self-exploration in therapy.


My focus is to work with individuals and incorporate their life experiences into our work, to understand the uncertainty, change, and challenges of life. One of the most important aspects of therapy is the client-clinician relationship. Therefore, my goal is to work collaboratively with you to empower you through those challenges.

I am trained in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. In addition, I have worked with individuals struggling with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I am capable of providing services to adolescents, adults, couples, and families. If you believe that together we can begin working on your goals, I invite you to reach out.
