Often the way we talk to ourselves informs how we feel and what we do. I am here to guide you through the process of harnessing your internal power to help free you from suffering and lead you towards self-acceptance, compassion, and relief.
I can help you develop skills and strategies to reach your goals and cultivate meaning and purpose in life. I am committed to offering a space where you are seen and heard, a space where you feel comfortable to explore challenges and struggles, and a space that contains your fears, worries, goals, and dreams. You are your agent of change and I can help you create the life you want to live.
I view the therapeutic space and relationship between therapist and client as a microcosm of how you interact with yourself and others. Therapy sessions can then become a working space to gain insight and create a bridge between where you are and where you would like to be.
Growing up in London and New York in a Hispanic-American household, I came to recognize the power in acknowledging and exploring our intersecting identities and various life roles we inhabit. My therapeutic style integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance Commit Therapy (ACT), two evidence based practices that are effective in treating anxiety and depression by focusing on how our thoughts impact our feelings and behaviors.
I have a dual Master’s degree from Columbia University in Clinical and Counseling Psychology. I specialize in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, codependency, family conflict, self-esteem, family conflict, and life transitions.
In my free time, I enjoy walking my rescue pup, Daisy, playing cards, and exploring different neighborhoods in NYC.
