What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am a strengths-centered therapist that focuses on a person as a whole. I enjoy working with people via Telehealth with the ease of technology. I have worked with the use of Telehealth since July 2020. I am passionate about serving people in my community who identify as Latinx being I am bilingual and bicultural. I understand the importance of maintaining a healthy mind and body to better function in life; I began my journey with a therapist as a teen and saw the benefits. My present goal is to provide mental health services to people in my community. Mi primer idioma es el Español y me gusta apoyar a gente monolingua en mi comunidad en necesidad de consejería. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
