In 2016, I completed a 3 year training in trauma healing called Somatic Experiencing™, which is a treatment model using physical sensation and touch in order to help a person renegotiate shock trauma, multiple traumas or accumulated stress that have become stuck in the nervous system & have caused physical or emotional symptoms.  If you would like more information regarding SE, please send me a message. 


I provide individual and couple psychotherapy for adults. I use a combination of interventions, drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Experiencing and solution focused therapy. 


Individual sessions are 50 minutes

Couples sessions are 60 minutes.

​Please inquire regarding fees. 


ALL SESSIONS ARE VIRTUAL DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC, QUARANTINE AND DELTA VARIANT SPREAD.

WELCOME!

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read through my website. I was born in El Salvador and raised in San Francisco, CA. Spanish is my first language and English is my second language, however, I dominate both languages well in my daily life. I started my career in the helping profession in the early 1990s in reproductive health, then in HIV testing and counseling. In 2001, I began working as a psychiatric crisis counselor with children and youth. I graduated with a Master's degree in Social Work (MSW) from San Francisco State University in 2008 and became licensed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 2014.
