What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

When I was a little girl, I went through a very difficult traumatic experience that marked my life forever. I was seen as the “different” child. I didn’t have any friends, I was laughed at, bullied, called names, amongst many other things. I was so vulnerable and broken. I started going to therapy and would play and color all the time with my therapist. I didn’t understand the purpose but I loved going because of how it made me feel. My therapist made me smile and laugh. As I grew up, I learned the value and the impact therapy had in my life. From a very young age, I knew I wanted to become a therapist. I have made it my life goal to help others overcome any challenging situations they may be facing. I want children to smile again. I want women to feel empowered and confident. I want families to be united and connected. I overcame so much in my life. So can you! Cuando era una niña, pasé por una experiencia traumática muy difícil que marcó mi vida para siempre. Fui vista como una niña "diferente". No tenía amistades, se burlaban de mí, me intimidaban, me insultaban, entre muchas otras cosas. Yo era vulnerable y estaba sentía destrozada. Empecé a ir a terapia y jugaba y coloreaba todo el tiempo con mi terapeuta. No entendía el propósito, pero me encantaba ir por cómo me hacía sentir. Mi terapeuta me hizo reír y sonreír. A medida que crecí, aprendí el valor y el impacto que está terapia tuvo en mi vida. Desde muy joven supe que quería convertirme en terapeuta. Mi objetivo en la vida es ayudar a otros a superar cualquier situación desafiante que puedan enfrentar. Quiero que los niños vuelvan a sonreír. Quiero que las mujeres se sientan empoderadas y seguras. Quiero que las familias estén unidas y conectadas. Yo superé tanto en mi vida. ¡Tu también puedes!

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I’m very personable. I always wear a smile on my face. I’m fun, energetic, and love to laugh. I quickly empathize with my clients. In sessions, I want my clients to feel they are in a safe place where they can be completely themselves. I make my clients feel welcome, warm, joyful, enthusiastic. My clients look forward to sessions because they know it’ll be fun, healing, and full of hope. Soy una persona muy agradable. Siempre llevo una sonrisa en mi rostro. Soy divertida, energética y me encanta reírme. Rápidamente me identifico con mis clientes. En mis sesiones yo quiero que mis clientes se sientan que están en un lugar seguro donde pueden ser completamente ellos mismos. Yo hago que mis clientes se sientan bienvenidos, cálidos, alegres, entusiastas. Mis clientes esperan con ansias tener sus sesiones conmigo porque saben que serán divertidas, curativas y llenas de esperanza.

Work History

My career initiated in 2014 doing my school practicum. I worked at a small non-profit organization working with undocumented women, especially domestic violence survivors. I provided individual therapy for these women and I also did group therapy for women. From here, I transitioned to work with children and families in 2015 and have been doing this work ever since. I work with children/teenagers in the foster care system, helping kids and teens process their trauma and work with the caregivers/parents on how to provide the proper emotional support for the child along with parenting skills. I also work with pre- and post-adoptive children/teenagers and adoptive families. I help kids and teens with the transition of becoming adopted and help the parents have a healthy bond with the adoptive child/teen. My work is mostly trauma focused and provide emotional support to the entire to the entire family. I do individual work with children and teenagers to work through their trauma or any emotional distress they may be experiencing. I work with the parents in teaching them how to be a supportive parent and work with them in gaining confidence in themselves.
