We have created a Latinx Mental Health Practitioner directory that is nationwide who are licensed, culturally conscious of the Latinx community, and provide quality service to their patients. We do not have a list of every single Latinx mental health practitioner nationwide since we are based on submissions. Please know that just because a therapist is listed in the directory does not mean that the therapist is endorsed by Therapy for Latinx. We are happy to be a starting point for mental wellness but encourage you to visit their website, call to ask questions and do some homework to find a therapist that will be the right fit for you.

Starting psychotherapy takes a tremendous amount of courage and strength. You're here; you took that first step, and that's amazing. In my practice, I strive to create an environment where people can feel safe, empowered, seen, and supported. In this space, we can discuss what is on your mind in the present, as well as ways in which your past may have impacted current patterns of emotions and behaviors.
In addition to graduate school training, I received post-grad certification in Relational Psychoanalytic Approaches to Working with Children/Adolescents. This influences my work with adults; particularly, those who experienced difficult or traumatic childhoods. As a bilingual Latina psychotherapist, I also specialize in working with Hispanic/Latinx clients whose dominant language is English, though may want to occasionally express themselves in Spanish.
Every person is unique. As such, I tailor my approach to the individual needs, interests, strengths, and goals of the people with whom I work. Together, we can talk through complex feelings, emotional blocks, and pursue your own unique path to progress. I look forward to meeting you.

She is the daughter of immigrant parents from Mexico and was born and raised in Boyle Heights, CA.

Together, developing greater insight into strengths and unresolved conflicts. She also believes, everything we need to live the life we want is already within us and we are the experts on ourselves. The benefit of therapy is to provide the support, education, techniques, and coping strategies that can enhance our life circumstances and empower us to attain our personal goals.

I acknowledge there is a range of gender expressions, consensual sexual behaviors and sexualities that should be celebrated. Everybody deserves to have a vibrant, joyful and unafraid life. In relationships, we tend to have the same arguments over and over, with little insight into how to change our patterns. I work with individuals and couples to break out of repetitive arguments by helping the couple gain insight, improve communication, thus enhancing intimacy and improving sexual desire discrepancies.
