You Can Break Free From Childhood And Generational Traumas And Unhealthy Relationship Patterns.

You work hard, are doing well in your career or schooling, and others look to you for help, support, and guidance.

But you also realize that something is holding you back. You may already have an idea of what’s contributing to your current struggles. You may even have tried therapy in the past.

My Trauma-Informed And Mindfulness Therapy Approach Goes Beyond Talk Therapy To Help You Heal.

Talk therapy can help you work through struggles and issues you face. But therapy is not a one-size-fits-all, and no one approach fits every situation or session.

So, in addition to traditional talk therapy, I incorporate other approaches and strategies, like mindfulness, Inner Child Work, and EMDR. So you can heal your whole self — mind, body, and inner self.

Sessions are tailored to fit your unique needs, so you can move forward and achieve your therapy goals at your pace

As a culturally competent therapist, I’m here to help you reconnect with all aspects of who you are.

As a Latina therapist and first-generation American, I understand how culture, race, generational expectations, and environment can impact you.

I can relate to the experiences and struggles experienced by people of color — which helps me create a safe, judgment-free space for you to freely express what you’re going through.

So you can reconnect with yourself — your dreams and goals — and strengthen your connection with family, loved ones, friends, and your roots.
