Philosophy

I use a collaborative, person-centered, supportive style of therapy, which seeks to improve your overall emotional, mental, psychological, and behavioral functioning. You will tell your own story, identifying your hopes and dreams as we start our journey together to work toward your own healing.

Personal Statement

Are you tired of suffering with depression, anxiety, undue stress, and unhealthy relationships? The time to transform your life is now! I use a compassionate, empathetic, non-judgmental manner to help you process and cope with whatever stress, immediate crisis, or challenge you may face. Throughout my sixteen years of experience as a therapist, I have had the pleasure to collaborate with individuals with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, and other challenges- both individually and in groups. My aim is to identify strengths that you may not be aware of so that you are able to focus on and thrive in your daily life. Using an evidence-based, integrative approach, my goal is to help you develop insight, healthy coping skills, and hope so that your therapy experience is empowering, productive, and results-oriented. Also, living and working in Mexico for over four years has provided me with a unique cultural context as a clinician that emphasizes social justice, family unity, and harmony over division.
