"The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination." Carl Rogers


Being content, comfortable, and at peace with oneself is something many, if not all, wish to feel and experience. As a therapist that has walked alongside the journeys of individuals from diverse walks of life, I seek to empower young adults and adults to be curious about oneself in order to live a life that brings you closer to understanding your past and fears of the future in order to live a present self-life. 


For many years I have worked with diverse populations, spanning many different cultures and ethnicities. With Spanish being my native language, I have had the privilege of working with many individuals from Spanish speaking countries as well.


My approach is trauma-informed, strength-based, culturally sensitive, and person centered. I use several different approaches to best fit your individual needs and to empower you in knowing yourself as complete, whole, and safe.



Ages: Children, Teens, Adults
