Welcome to my private practice! In my current practice, I work with adults in individual therapy although I have many years working with various populations and settings. My career history also includes many years of management and clinical supervision in Community Mental Health settings. I am a client centered therapist, meaning I adjust to my clients needs, with a flexible and compassionate approach. I have training in various evidence based approaches. I also have a 2 year certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. My education includes a BA and MA in Clinical Psychology and a minor in Women’s Studies which was a study of women in various areas such as History, Literature, Psychology, and Sociology, the study of Gender, LGBTQ,and feminist theory.
My practice is LGBTQ affirmative. I am bicultural Latina/Hispanic and am open to working with various cultural groups. I enjoy providing Attachment Focused EMDR and have been fortunate to witness my clients healing with this therapy. It has been extremely rewarding to assist my clients to heal utilizing EMDR therapy. I attended Parts 1, 2, and 3 of Parnell EMDR trainings. My office is in Pasadena and I provide telehealth as well, including virtual EMDR. Check me out on PsychologyToday.com as well.
