It is through congruence, and a genuine ability to empathize and to be compassionate, that I believe is how an organic developing therapeutic relationship manifests. My style’s core foundation revolves around a collaboration between Rogerian therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT). Furthermore, I also incorporate mindfulness and aroma therapy to my practice. My humanistic, person-centered, psychotherapeutic approach aims to provide unconditional positive regard by means of allocating a warm, comfortable, judgment free, and safe environment for you to freely engage in focused, in-depth self-exploration, and ultimately facilitate self-actualization (i.e., self-healing, personal growth, and reaching your full potential). While in the room, the time is yours, and I follow your lead all the while focusing on the here-and-now. It is through a supportive, and collaborative process, that I express my enthusiasm to validate and also cater to your specific needs. I am respectful, accepting, and welcoming to all ages, disabilities (developmental and/or acquired), religions and/or spiritual identities, ethnicities and racial identities, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic status.
I obtained my Bachelors degree at San Francisco State University and majored in Psychology and minored in Counseling. I am currently finishing up my Masters degree at New York University for Counseling in Mental Health and Wellness. I gained clinical experience working in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), as a bilingual (fluent in both Spanish and English) behavioral interventionist/therapist, and also School-Based Mental Health. I have direct experience with children, adolescents, teens, adults, and the elderly of all ethnic backgrounds. It is with an open heart that I invite you to give yourself an opportunity at enhancing your quality of life through the process of self-discovery.
