As a social worker, I see each person as the expert of their own experience while also empowering them to grow and heal. I see myself as walking alongside you in your journey. My hope is to support you in identifying your strengths and building on those together while also identifying support in the community around you.
I enjoy bringing humor and creativity into my relationships with my clients and I believe that building trust together will be the cornerstone of your healing process. We all bring our own stories into the therapy room and supporting you in telling yours is something that I look forward to!
Who I Serve
I have more than 10 years of experience in social work and have been working as a licensed provider for two years. I began my career working with college aged women as a peer mentor for mindfulness and spiritual growth. For the past several years, I have been serving women and children in community mental health and have provided a range of support for families including attachment based therapies, parenting groups, as well as therapy for children, teens, women, and families.
I am a bilingual therapist and provide services in both English and Spanish. I enjoy working with women, children, and teens, as well as families.
