Introduction

My approach to therapy is rooted in trust, relatability, and connection. These are qualities I hold in high regard, as I am honored to witness and be of support, while you navigate the path towards your personal goals. I value authenticity and vulnerability, in myself and others, and strive to provide this experience from the beginning of our time together. I believe in intuition and the importance of having a sense of humor. 

 

My experience and scope of practice are broad, while I worked in community mental health for several years with high-risk populations in both, Denver and Chicago. I have in-depth training and experience with treating substance use disorders and addictive behaviors, as well as trauma, anxiety, and mood and psychotic disorders. I am skilled in working with individuals across the lifespan and am particularly passionate about adolescents and young adults working through the many challenges that can arise. My education and early experiences were based in school-social work, therefore I am well versed in navigation and collaboration within education systems, and providing parental support. I bring an additional sense of understanding to the room, from having my own life experiences that brought me to seek therapy as a teenager.

 

I can help support and guide clients in navigating through life transitions, obstacles that have arisen, and any other encountered stressors, as well as provide a safe, nonjudgmental space to process core belief systems, values, and experiences that have brought you to where you are today. I pride myself in my multi-cultural lens of treatment, understanding of cultural impact (present and historical) on overall mental health and wellness, and have experience with immigrant populations. I am fluent in Spanish and I am happy to use this skill in therapy sessions, as it applies to your needs.
