What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

Clients often share that our therapeutic space is one where authenticity and genuine connection thrive. In my approach, silence is replaced with engagement, active listening, and thoughtful reflections. I don't just sit in my chair; I am present, asking questions, and providing interpretations that foster understanding. Together, we delve into identifying limiting beliefs, working collaboratively to reframe habitual thought patterns. Occasionally, I may gently challenge thoughts that may be causing harm, always acknowledging that you are the expert of your own life. Getting to know you on a personal level is crucial to tailoring support where you need it most.

Education

San Jose State University, Master of Social Work, Health and Mental Health, 2010

As a bilingual Latina psychotherapist, I proudly hold licenses from the State of California Board of Behavioral Sciences and Florida’s Department of Health, serving as a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). My academic background includes a Master’s Degree in Social Work from San Jose State University (SJSU) with a focus on Health and Mental Health.

Work History

With over 15 years of experience, my professional journey has been devoted to collaborating with diverse communities, particularly the Black and Latinx populations in the Bay Area. I am genuinely passionate about connecting with individuals from all backgrounds and extend a warm and inclusive welcome to everyone seeking support in my practice. Specializing in a range of areas, including but not limited to assisting survivors of sexual abuse, supporting BIPOC professionals, engaging with the LGBTQ+ community, and collaborating with individuals exploring psychedelics for healing, I adopt an eclectic approach tailored to the unique needs of each client, spanning both teens and adults. My work is dedicated to addressing trauma through a cultural lens, and I've had the privilege of working with clients from a rich tapestry of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. I've provided services to youth and adults who have faced or witnessed family and community violence, with the overarching goal of empowering individuals to heal and regain control over their lives.
