    How I Help my Clients:

    I characterize myself as calm, sensitive, and thoughtful.  Outside of counseling, I enjoy living an active lifestyle, focusing on fitness and healthy eating. Family time and being with my dogs are my top priorities. I intend to take gentle “mindful” pauses throughout my day, appreciating moments in nature and maintaining a consistent self-care routine. In my downtime, I often read a book or catch up on Netflix.

    My ideal client might be someone who is seeking guidance and support in navigating their inner experiences. They are open to exploring mindfulness, self-compassion, and transpersonal techniques as avenues for cultivating acceptance. These individuals could be struggling with emotional pain or facing challenges, seeking healing and transformation. They are ready to connect with their pain within a therapeutic relationship, engaging in a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, and are willing to embrace their inner experiences with openness and curiosity.  As a bilingual mental health counselor specializing in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling, I provide a holistic approach that integrates body, mind, emotions and spirit. I prioritize creating a safe space for exploration and healing within the therapeutic relationship. Mindfulness, meditation, introspection, and mind/body awareness techniques are essential to my practice. Each session is tailored to individual needs, trusting the client’s process and promoting living life with awareness, kindness, and acceptance.
