Bilingual Therapist in Washington DC
I’m passionate about helping clients that come to therapy seeking relief for a wide range of concerns.
My therapy style is trauma-informed and I intentionally try to offer to my clients an environment where they (and their nervous systems) feel supported so that they can safely explore and transform aspects of their lives that no longer serves them.
As a Latina therapist, my bicultural background and bilingual skills, are are a great fit for individuals who are seeking to work with therapists that are comfortable and competent to work with clients from diverse backgrounds.
I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology from the Chicago School for Professional Psychology and a Bachelors in International Relations. I have training in Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy.
Prior to working here at CEPS, I worked at Unity Health Care and Catholic Charities providing psychotherapy services for wide range of clinical diagnosis.
During my professional career I have enjoyed opportunities to work and help communities around the world. In 2011, I trained local teachers, orphanage workers, and other childcare professionals on trauma in Kigali, Rwanda. In 2008, I participated in a business development project where I created and managed a series of public seminars on basic business principles with a team of students in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
