ASSOCIATE MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST, #96567.

Office in the Bay Area - Alameda, CA.
Are you feeling “stuck” and unable to move forward in your life, work, or relationships? Do you find it difficult to create and sustain relationships? It is possible to learn skills that can increase/strengthen opportunities for social growth and intimacy. Tap into a sense of both perseverance & resiliency in order to make independent decisions with increased confidence. Learn to direct your actions & thinking mind to express your authentic self, adapt, and move out of that stuck feeling.
As an intuitive therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating! While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying culturally sensitive, strength-based therapeutic approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
I have years of experience working in healthcare, and know how important it is that you find a therapist who meets your unique needs. My style is warm, empathetic, and clear. I sometimes combine mentoring and coaching when problem-solving seems important, or when short-term help is desired. I'm certified to provide tele-health therapy services, which means I can work in-state over long-distances or with clients who have difficult scheduling issues or who are challenged by mobility.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. Today you are one step closer to a new you - one where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
I identify as a Latina, a Native American, a parent, and a holistic practitioner. I also identify as a member of the Family of the Disabled Community.
