DSC09898-Edit

I am a Bilingual Clinical Therapist specializing in servicing children, adolescents, adults of different cultural backgrounds. My practice has placed particular attention to working with young women and first generation Latinx dealing with depression, anxiety, and trauma.

Whether you’re seeking guidance to process stress throughout the week or address more specific challenges, I hold a safe, welcoming space for you in which we will practice acceptance and empowerment using a strength-based approach.

Education

I graduated from California Polytechnic University, Pomona with my Bachelor’s in Sociology. I received my Masters in Social Work from California State University, San Bernardino with a specialization in Mental Health.

Treatment Methods and Philosophy

I prioritize the client’s level of comfort to reassure we create a trusting foundation to our therapeutic relationship. I am your co-pilot to your journey and help you navigate life and while teaching you skills to help manage everyday challenges.

I use the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM). To teach, you how to “restore” your nervous system into a state of natural balance while increasing awareness of your internal responses to high stress situations. I have used this model on individuals that live with symptoms of trauma, anger, anxiety, and depression.

I believe in a mind-body approach and incorporate a holistic perspective into treatment. I have training in Nutritional Psychology which allows me to provide psychoeducation the relationship between food and mental health. I have completed a training with UCLA’s Mindfulness Awareness Practices which focuses on mindfulness exercises and techniques.

Other treatment methods in my background include, garden-oriented activities, play, art, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing.
