In Person

As a therapist, I’ve had the privilege of helping diverse teens, adults, couples, and marginalized communities reconnect with their strengths, resilience, and authenticity. Every person has their own story and deserves to be truly seen, heard, known, and cared for, whether they experienced loss, pain, invisibility, trauma, or any other challenge that comes with being human. I appreciate our abilities to heal and value genuine connection. I am deeply committed to supporting people on their path toward growth, healing, and living a meaningful life aligned with their values.

My approach to therapy is empathic, open-hearted, and collaborative. My intention is to create a safe, secure, and compassionate space with you where you can feel validated, supported, and understood in our therapeutic relationship. Together, we’ll unpack the root causes of your struggles, untangle and process emotions, build insight, and access your strengths to help you create lasting change in your life. I use a trauma-informed lens and an integrative approach to meet your unique goals.

Personally touched by loss and vulnerability in my life, I find it humbling to support people through their journeys of uncertainty, hope, and empowerment. I am passionate about working with individuals and couples navigating grief and loss, fertility treatment, people living with chronic pain and illness, and dealing with relational distress and cultural issues. As a second-
generation Latina American, I intimately understand the struggles of cultural and generational differences and am committed to honoring your cultural identities, values, and beliefs.

I am currently pre-licensed and receive clinical supervision from Autumn Schuster, LCSW. I earned my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology from Santa Clara University, including a Bachelor of Science in Human Development with a minor in Psychology from UC Davis.
