I am a bilingual Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who received a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University and Bachelors in Psychology from Loyola University Chicago. I have over four years of clinical experience working with adults, adolescents, children, families and couples from diverse backgrounds in both, English and Spanish.
I have experience working with individuals who have struggled with a variety of mental health issues such as Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Personality Disorders, Mood Disorders, Self-Injury Behaviors, Family & Marital Issues, Self-Esteem Issues, Grief & Loss, Intimate Partner Violence ( Perpetrators and victims) and Sexual Abuse. I specialized in Trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
I utilize a combination of therapeutic interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Center Therapy, Play Therapy, Crisis Intervention, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy and Mindfulness Therapy Techniques. Also, I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
“My ultimate goal is to make a positive and powerful impact in people’s lives with compassion and commitment. It is my strong belief that with appropriate support, delivered with respect and empathy, people in distress can define their issues, ensure their safety, empower their abilities, and recognize their available resources… all in an effort to heal.”
