While my methods are grounded in evidence-based practices, my style is unique, down-to-earth and non-traditional. I'm also realistic, charismatic and compassionate. I apply humor when necessary and take great pride in challenging you to rise to your own occasion. Being able to step back and take an observational view of your life and consider a different perspective is integrated into my practice and a large part of what excites me about this work. I'll collaborate with you to get where you want to be in a way that makes the most sense to you.

I want to help you realign your head and heart in order to trust your intuition. Doing this allows you to live your life from a strength-based deep understanding of yourself, propelling you toward achieving self-actualization! You already have the characteristics, tools, and passion you need for everything you want, we may just need to make a few adjustments to rejuvenate those qualities or go even deeper to heal pain from past trauma.

Wether you're here to heal primarily or using our time to catapult you to your greatest heights, I'm looking forward to taking that journey with you.

Our emotions are tied to our native language. When starting therapy, it is helpful to have someone who can understand your native language so you can express yourself. I can provide a space where you can switch between both English and Spanish if needed. It is helpful to find someone you are comfortable with that will understand you even when the Spanglish comes out.

Finding a therapist and beginning therapy are two steps that take an immense amount of courage and energy. I know this because I've been on the client-side of therapy many times and value not only the growth, but also the understanding it gives me when working with new clients. The reality of the situation is that most often you've been wondering about this for a while and/or are feeling quite in need of support.

My hope for you is to find a therapist who you feel you could become vulnerable around, with time, and I believe this is an innate-knowing, not something you can convince yourself of. I do my best to support folks by offering a complimentary consultation to potential clients so you can get an idea of what my therapeutic approach and personality are.

I strive to walk alongside people as they navigate the difficult times of life and encourage them to seek new ways of understanding their own stories. I utilize mindfulness-based approaches in all the work I do. Please reach out if you'd like to see what working with me is like; I'd be honored to get your email.

It can be healing to share your story with someone who truly listens with compassion, someone who can relate objectively and non-judgmentally, someone who can hold space for and be with all emotions, even those that seem intense, overwhelming, and scary. It can be life-changing simply to have a space and time once a week that is just for and about you, a space that is safe and welcomes all aspects of who you are, even those that you feel you can’t show to anyone else, a space that honors imperfection and encourages humanity, a space in which you aren’t alone.

In our work together, I help you develop and grow your senses of awareness and compassion. You will have the space to explore hidden, hurting, or suppressed parts of yourself, which can help to heal and shed feelings and perspectives of judgment and shame within. Through this work, I guide and challenge you to practice different ways of self-love and human-kindness, so that you can experience, enjoy, and trust the most confident version of yourself.

SWPA is a group of seasoned and experienced specialized clinicians, each of us at the top of our respective specialities. We have come together with one shared truth - for us, our work is a calling. This isn't just a job. This isn't just a paycheck. We truly love our work and the care we provide our clients. Every decision we make in our practice is based on helping our clients achieve their goals.

We believe our clients are "whole" just as you are. You are not broken, you are not bad, but you may be struggling or hurting, like so many of us are. That struggle may be internal in how you think about yourself or others, or the struggle may be external in your relationships. Regardless of the source of your pain, there is hope that things can be different. The first step in creating change is reaching out and finding a place you feel comfortable in being yourself - your whole self.

When you are in pain or confused, it's not always easy to know where to go or with whom to talk. Therapy offers you a safe and confidential space to tell your story and explore that story's effect on your life right now. With support and feedback, I offer my clients an opportunity to feel more at peace with who they are and to make new decisions about themselves. You may even feel ready to try new behaviors and change the story of your life.

I tend to be informal and interactive and am focused on your goals for therapy. The most important aspect of the therapeutic experience is developing a relationship with someone you can trust. As a result, I try to keep it simple and work with the concerns that you want to address.

I am available to meet in person or via Tele-health video as well as secure electronic registration and payment. Our office follows Covid-19 protocols that allow for social distancing, hand washing and mask wearing.

Relationships are hard. When clients come to me they typically feel frustrated, lost, and that life has not turned out the way they wanted it to. Typically clients wonder what they did wrong to be so unhappy in relationships and think they have bad luck at love. These clients have tried everything and just don't know what else to do. They are ready and motivated to make changes but need someone to help them.

I understand how frustrating and isolating this can be. My clients often find that after working with me, they develop tools to use in the times they are outside of our sessions. They are more aware of patterns that are holding them back and they know when they are engaging in them with more clarity. Many of my clients go on to have more fulfilling relationships and feel more satisfied with their lives.

Married women who see me often feel that they are able to identify where the problems are in their relationship with greater ease. They focus on themselves and find that their marriage automatically flourishes as a result or it becomes more clear the direction they need to take.
