Introduction

When dealing with children and family issues, I believe compassion, experience, and individual attention lead to positive outcomes and growth. My passion for working with children, adolescents and families has been molded by over ten years of experience in an array of community outreach settings serving both children and adults. I share a dedicated interest in multi-cultural issues and use an individual's cultural background to inform treatment.  As a bilingual Spanish-speaking therapist, I aim to provide all my clients with the quality mental health services they deserve
Cuando se trata de asuntos de familia y de  la infancia, yo creo que la compasión, la experiencia, y atención individual brindan resultados positivos y motivan el crecimiento personal. Mi pasión de tratar a niños, adolescentes, y familias se ha dado a cabo por más de diez años de experiencia colaborando con agencias comunitarias cuales brindan servicios a niños y familias. Uno de mis intereses es tratar con individuos y comunidades de distintos antecedentes culturales y utilizar la cultura para individualizar el tipo de tratamiento que uso. Como terapeuta bilingüe en Español, mi objetiva es proveer servicios de salud mental de alta calidad a todos mis pacientes.
