It is such an honor to sit across from clients as they do the important and powerful work of healing from past trauma and attachment wounds. It is both my personal and professional experience with therapy that allows me to understand my client’s journeys, and I believe it takes courage to show up and be vulnerable in healing spaces. 

 

As a therapist, I strive to provide a safe space for clients and whole-heartedly believe you are the expert in your experience. My work is to guide and create the safety you need to seek the clarity, insight, healing, or catharsis you need to be your full authentic self. I love supporting clients as they create new connections, strengthen old connections, and release the connections that no longer serve them.

Trained in:

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), EMDR, & Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Treatment

My Mission:
My hope is that in your counseling process you feel encouraged, empowered, and safe to process through any difficult moments you may be going through. I will meet you where you are in a non-judgmental, open, and warm space to support you along the way.
My Journey:
I am a New-York born, Puerto Rican who found my way to Texas in pursuit of my graduate degree in Counseling Psychology. Having studied a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Puerto Rico, I knew my passion and personal qualities were calling me to further my education in this field.

I found that completing my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at Texas Woman’s University aligned with my multicultural-feminist values. And in more ways than one, I have seen how providing mental health services in Texas from a multicultural perspective and being able to work with the Spanish speaking population has been very meaningful to me.

Self-Care Rituals:

Outside of my work as a therapist, I enjoy connecting with nature and moving my body through hiking, biking, and exercising. During my down time I also enjoy binge watching reality TV and finding some light-hearted comedies or stand-ups to connect with laughter.
