A passionate and dedicated Latina (fluent Spanish and English) therapist, born in New York and raised in Connecticut. With years of personal, educational, and work experience serving others. I can provide a compassionate, safe, confidential, and judgment free-zone to discuss life stressors that become barriers towards an enhanced quality of life.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, seniors, LGBTQ+, individuals overcoming substance use and mental health concerns, ex- cons, victims of domestic violence, homelessness, and immigration concerns. Together, we will use different methodologies focusing on conflict resolution with a Trauma informed approach to overcome obstacles and increase self-awareness. My goal is to meet the client where they are, create a customized plan, and encourage an enhanced lifestyle using empowerment, mindfulness, and motivational theories. With consistency, resilience, and support, I believe we can live to be the best version of ourselves. 


Areas of focus include: Trauma/PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Domestic Violence, Relational issues, life skills, socioemotional and behavior concerns.
