I am excited to support you on your individual counseling journey toward healing, health, wellness, and personal growth.
I received my bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of Florida and received my master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Central Florida. I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, licensed in both Florida and New Jersey, with over 10 years of clinical experience.

I am a highly experienced therapist specializing in working with Latino and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) adult therapy seekers. With over 17 years of dedicated practice, I have developed expertise in supporting individuals who are navigating life changes, managing anxiety, addressing perfectionism, and confronting challenging beliefs that hinder personal growth.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in providing personalized care and recognizing and honoring the unique experiences and perspectives of each individual. I create a safe and inclusive space where clients from diverse backgrounds feel seen, valued, and empowered. By tailoring my approach to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual, I enable my clients to develop and strengthen the skills necessary to make meaningful and lasting changes in their lives.
I also offer Leadership Coaching, Consultation, and Speaking Engagement services. Here is where you can learn more about my professional development opportunities.
