Los Angeles Team
I am a bilingual (Spanish/English) speaking therapist. I am an alumni from Mount St. Mary's University. I have a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapist. I have experience in community mental health with high risk populations and in Educational Related Mental Health in the school setting. I am trained in EMDR, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Trauma. I have worked in the past in a community based setting as a school base therapist and a MAT assessor. I have experience working with young adults, adults and couples.
My approach is eclectic, I like to meet with you and discuss your needs and together we can work on an appropriate treatment plan.
Please note that at the moment I am only offering Virtual Sessions .
