Professional Experience:

I have a Master’s degree in clinical counseling and am a Bilingual Licensed Professional Counselor. Since 2001, I have been a therapist working with children, adolescents, couples, families, and adults in various settings; mental health centers, medical clinics, and schools. These experiences have been invaluable in preparing me for my work in private practice.

My Message:

My personal journey is not that different than many of my clients. As I became more aware and empowered through my own healing path, I began to heal and rise from difficult circumstances. Through the process of my awakening, emotional healing and often treacherous personal growth and development work, I embraced my life purpose. Today, I am committed to giving back in service what I myself have received. As a therapist my greatest joy is seeing my clients overcome pain and rise. I believe we are more powerful than we know and I am grateful for your work. I honor your story.
