Profile
“Due to my personal growth and work experience, I am able to provide therapy with understanding, empathy, and compassion.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
For several years, I worked in child protection services and witnessed firsthand the lack of services available for bilingual families. Being a first-generation Latina professional and working with families who were as well motivated me to further my educational training to help individuals with stressful situations. I was exposed to many cultures and socio-economic backgrounds while working in various organizations throughout New York City; this has shaped my practice today. Due to my personal growth and work experience, I am able to provide therapy with understanding, empathy, and compassion.
What should someone know about working with you?
Starting treatment and finding the right therapist can be a very scary and daunting task. Therapy for me consists of a nonjudgmental and safe space for clients who are provided patience, open-mindedness, and tools to empower them with skills to manage stressful situations throughout their lives. As a psychotherapist, I use person-centered, strengths-based approaches and talk therapy. The process to start includes an intake that is an in-depth look into the client's life and an assessment of appropriate treatment. I like to meet the client where they are and process with them their challenges and goals for treatment.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
To continue to build on my skills, I attend various workshops and seminars, staying up-to-date with new psychotherapy treatments. I have also incorporated a peer supervision group to help me with self-awareness, self-monitoring, and review of hard cases.
