Profile
“In my work as a mental health practitioner, I have been drawn to issues affecting professionals who identify as BIPOC and who are looking for help to better navigate personal and professional relationships.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker?
In my work as a mental health practitioner, I have been drawn to issues affecting professionals who identify as BIPOC and who are looking for help to better navigate personal and professional relationships. I have worked in a mental health setting for the majority of my social work career, providing comprehensive individual and group psychotherapy using a trauma-informed treatment model. I have also received advanced training in cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapies and have presented on my trauma-based work and research throughout my career.
What should someone know about working with you?
Every client comes with a unique life story, identity, and set of goals. Throughout our sessions, I focus on tailoring my approach to the individual needs each client brings. I use a comprehensive intake process to help me understand the presenting issues, explore the reasons you came to therapy, and discover the ways that I can support you in reaching your goals. From there, my goal is to work collaboratively to create achievable goals in therapy.

How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My psychotherapy approach is open, nonjudgmental, and supportive. I believe in using a holistic approach and looking at my clients’ lives in their entirety. As a first-generation Latinx professional, I have developed a personal interest in promoting culturally-informed healthcare services and I knew that becoming a clinical social worker would provide me with the opportunity to work toward solutions with my clients.
