My Approaches to Therapy
My approach to counseling is influenced by systems theory. This approach holds that family members influence each other in both positive and negative ways. Therefore, each family member plays an important role in solving problems. My approach is gentle and empowering to bring about healing for the client and improve family connections. I am an EMDRIA Trained Eye movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist and Certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I integrate trauma-informed, culturally-sensitive, attachment and strength-based approaches. I am bilingual with advanced proficiency in Spanish, which has allowed me to serve the Latinx community more extensively. Additionally I can integrate faith-based therapy for those who desire a Christian approach.
