Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy is helpful for those who want to work through issues at a pace that allows for an in-depth exploration.

As a therapist, I offer personalized counseling sessions to adults seeking growth and development in their personal and interpersonal lives. My education and experiences center around offering assistance to the BIPOC community, with a specialty in Latinx/e mental health concerns and adult children of immigrants.

Modalities Offered

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy primarily aims to identify and address how our thoughts can lead us into unproductive patterns. The therapy involves learning to shift our thinking towards a more adaptable and empathetic outlook, as well as acquiring coping mechanisms for challenging situations in life.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and commitment therapy is all about identifying what truly matters to you in life and figuring out how to align your actions with that vision. Through this therapy, you can explore ways to embrace your values, build your emotional resilience, and connect with your genuine self.

Culturally Sustaining Lens

I chose this profession because I am passionate about providing better access to those who are often overlooked. My focus has been on ensuring that people from marginalized communities can receive high-quality care that uplifts their identities and doesn't view them through a negative lens. You deserve to work with someone who will see and support every aspect of you.

EMDR Therapy

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a type of therapy that aids in the reprocessing of traumatic memories and other distressing life events. Unlike traditional therapies, EMDR does not require clients to talk extensively about the distressing situation. The therapy method uses an eight-phase model that concentrates on the images, beliefs, emotions, and bodily experiences associated with the event. The ultimate goal is to alleviate distress and symptoms related to the event.

Common Mental Health Challenges

Anxiety

Anxiety disorder manifests in feelings of fear, dread, and uneasiness, accompanied by physical reactions. While anxiety is a normal stress reaction, people who suffer from anxiety disorder may find the physical and mental symptoms overwhelming to the extent that they can't manage their life day-to-day.

Depression

Depressive disorders can show up in our lives as persistent sadness and a decrease in pleasure hormones which can lead to numbness, fatigue, and lack of interest in things. People who experience depression may experience a sense of hopelessness, and guilt, and may struggle to concentrate or make decisions.
