Work History

Ever wanted to break the cycle of trauma? Now is the time. As a daughter of immigrant parents, a working mother, and a wife, I can see your resiliency and grit. Getting to this point has been challenging, but guess what? You're doing it. With almost 15 years of working in this field, I have the skills to provide high-quality individual therapy sessions and develop comprehensive goals tailored to each client's unique needs. I have dedicated myself to improving the lives of individuals struggling with an array of mental health problems (i.e., depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, low self-esteem, etc.) and with a diverse set of backgrounds (i.e., undocumented Latinx individuals, military veterans, and families within the child welfare system). To assist you in overcoming challenges and achieving personal growth, I will use evidence-based therapeutic interventions (i.e., client-centered therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused brief therapy, trauma-informed approaches, etc.). Let's increase your confidence in your ability to conquer your problems. I will provide you with compassionate support, a collaborative relationship, and a safe space that can often lend itself to moments of humor. We will build upon your strengths to assist you in taking the steps toward becoming a healthy and happier version of YOU. Don't be afraid. Let's begin this journey together. 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.
