The decision to seek help can be difficult or scary. However, there are times in life when the guidance of a therapist that makes you feel heard and understood can be one of the more powerful experiences.
I develop strong connections with my clients, provide tools, in order to help in their journey to healing, recovery, and repairing relationships with themselves and others. I strongly believe in having authentic difficult genuine conversations in which I will get real and challenge you in a supportive way.
My clinical background and experience include working for more than five years with individuals, partners, couples, and family members from different populations and cultures, including the LGBTTQQIAAP community. I’m a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and treat issues related to sex, sexual compulsions, sex/pornography addiction, betrayal trauma, healing and recovery. My clients include both Christians and non-Christians. I understand and help Christian clients that are experiencing the positive and negative impact faith has in them. I have extensive training in Structural and Bowenian Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches.
I also focus in treating trauma in a non-profit agency working with children, adolescents, and families dealing with multiple layers of symptoms and impairments. As well as, mentoring other clinicians there. In addition, I am an adjunct faculty professor currently teaching future therapists in a master’s degree program.
I am a bilingual therapist that provide therapy in English, Spanish or both depending on the need of the client or family.
I enjoy traveling and enriching myself with new places and cultures. As a family guy, I love to spend time with family and loved ones creating new experiences together.
One of my biggest passions is to be part of and to be witness to my clients’ transformation and evolution. I know that making the decision to start therapy is not an easy one. My goal is to work with you from a strength base approach in a non-judgmental safe environment where you can be your authentic self in your journey to restoring and healing.
