As St. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, at times you might find yourself going through a period of trials and suffering. These can be through conflicting emotions, relationships, past or present loses, external stressors, or simply feeling something is missing in your life. Therapy provides a way out by integrating a mind/body/spirit connection within you to help you return to wellness.
It requires great strength and courage when taking the first step to reach out. I would be honored if you allow me to walk alongside you on that road to find a way to unlock your full potential as God intended it to be. I strive to follow your lead and adapt to your personal style and needs, and together, create a supportive, safe and nurturing environment. Feeling empowered to express yourself without fear of judgement or misunderstanding, especially when you place God at the center of your life.
I have over 7 years of experience working with children, teens, adolescent, adults, couples and families. I believe Christian Counseling and Therapy is what I been called to do to fulfill God’s will in my life. Therefore, I can incorporate the spiritual component in therapy with emphasis in Christianity only to the extent you are most comfortable.
I love working with pre-teens, adolescents, adults of all ages, couples and minorities. I am bilingual in Spanish and English and have experience in depressive, anxiety and other mood disorders, anger management, physical, sexual and psychological trauma, spiritual difficulties, cultural adjustments and life transition issues, self-esteem/ self-image, self- harm, social skills, relationship problems, men and women’s issues, behavioral/conduct problems and parenting difficulties.
I utilize a variety of approaches, such as Client-Centered, Strengths Based, Emotionally Focused, Narrative, Experiential, Psychodynamic, CBT and Mindfulness-based. I also use EFT and the Gottman Method for couples therapy and a contemplative approach for Cristian counseling.
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and received my Master’s degree from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Social Psychology at the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana in México City, MX.
