YOLO! YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE, so make it the best life it can be!
I understand the chaos that we call life. I personally come from a multicultural/ethnic background, where Spanglish is common, laughter is important, and everyone is welcome. My career has been centered in support for victims of crimes, persons experiencing an emotional crisis, and families in crisis that want to restore healthy connection. I also have experience working with couples using Imago dialogue approaches, designed to help conflict within relationships become opportunities for healing and growth.
I use mission-focused tactics to develop your therapeutic goals and figure out how we can get you there. You’re driving the car, I’m merely the GPS system guiding you along whichever route you decide to take. My lived experiences as a mediator, coach, educator, and now therapist motivate my knowing that empathetic, safe, nonjudgmental collaboration makes for exceptional development of confidence and wellbeing. I work from a lighthearted approach that is grounded in acceptance, intersectionality, and I believe life tests us so we can discover our strengths.
