My Approach to Therapy
As a bilingual Couple and Family Therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and families to improve relationships and personal well-being. I am here to support you in navigating the challenges you seek to overcome, so that you may live a more fulfilling life. Using your unique strengths and inner wisdom, I am honored to partner alongside you in your journey, and together, we can find the healing, growth and change that you desire and deserve. I believe positive change is possible through compassion, vulnerability and awareness.
My approach is holistic, collaborative and emotionally-focused. One size does not fit all; so therapy is tailored to your specific needs and focuses on helping you reach your personal goals. It is the way we respond to our life’s circumstances that ultimately determines our story. Through therapeutic exploration, we will discover what thoughts, feelings, behaviors and patterns may be holding you back, and which may be the secret to realizing your ideal story.
I have experience working with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting and life transitions. I am passionate about working with couples, relationship issues and sex & intimacy. I have experience working with infidelity, sexual dysfunction, separation, conflict and communication issues. I also enjoy working with teens and young adults, and working with diverse backgrounds, particularly LGBTQ+ and Latinos/Hispanics. I offer therapy services in Spanish.
I am married, from Southern California and half Colombian. I truly love what I do, and I strongly value work-life balance. I love biking, traveling, watching movies and eating cheese. Spending quality time with family and friends is my greatest joy. I believe humor and positivity are essential, not only in my work, but in everyday life.
