"Above the clouds the sky is always blue."
Therese of Lisieux
I am passionate about healing others from the inside out. The resiliency of people never ceases to amaze me. The most rewarding part about my job is helping clients attain clarity of mind by freeing their body of anxiety and negative thoughts, allowing them to be their true self.
I am a bilingual Spanish speaking therapist that primarily uses Internal Family Systems and EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) as the vehicle for healing, while incorporating mindfulness and other therapeutic interventions.
My goal is for you to be clear of afflictions and gain insight on what you have experienced, so you can become more aware and make changes to improve your well-being.
Outside of my private practice, I enjoy meeting new people and trying new things. I am a promoter of self-care and I partake in many activities throughout the week such as Yoga, Barre, Pilates, and mindfulness meditation.
