Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

Are you overwhelmed? Do everyday tasks feel unachievable and difficult? Are you avoiding friends and family? You’re not alone. Depression and anxiety can paralyze, make one feel desolate, unattached to the meaningful things in life. The good news? There's hope. We can work through this, together.

My Approach

I offer compassion and listen to understand. I bring my whole being and imagination into the work to offer an authentic connection to create a working relationship based on trust, openness, and possibility. I incorporate tools garnered from Jungian Psychology, Psychodynamic approaches, Humanistic/Existential Psychology, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and CBT. I believe reflecting on life’s past and present relationships offers insight to help us navigate our current and future relationships, experiences, and self. Together we can help you achieve your goals, make new choices to create new experiences that ultimately forge new understanding and a more satisfying, fulfilling life.

My Background

I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and a registered intern with the State of Oregon. I hold a Master in Counseling from Portland State University. I also offer counseling to bilingual/bicultural clients in both Spanish and English; this work is rooted in my Mexican American cultural heritage and experience. I have experience working with artists and focus on helping people work through their anxiety, depression, and finding meaning in life.
