Description of Counselor/Practice
I strive to build a renewed sense of agency and understanding in clients by offering opportunities to get them living the life or relationship they will love/enjoy/make them truly happy. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate, I offer couples therapy and counseling as well as individual therapy services. I approach therapy in a way that takes into account systemic, cultural, relational, attachment needs, and influences. I align with the couple or client to try to get into the muddy, less glamorous dynamics of life to uncover what is really at the heart things for them. Together with you, I work as an attentive and empathetic process consultant: identifying perceptions and damaging cycles to reorient you and/or your partner in order to create opportunities for vulnerability and understanding. The goal is for you to see yourself and to see the person(s) you are in relationship with once again with renewed insight and possibilities. By doing so, we put into practice new approaches and help you apply skills that will enable success in your everyday life independent of therapy. Ultimately, I venture to make therapy a safe space where individuals can be seen, heard, and can grow in a direction that aligns with their unique values and goals. I am fluent in both English and Spanish (native Spanish speaker).
