About me

I was born in Mexico and came to the US when I was 11 years old. I grew up in Los Angeles California. After I completed my undergraduate studies, I decided to teach elementary school for 8 wonderful years for Los Angeles Unified Schools. As a teacher, I came to see the important role mental health plays in families and student success so I decided to become a psychotherapist. I came to Colorado in 2005 to complete my graduate studies in Contemplative Psychotherapy at Naropa University in Boulder. The accomplishment I am most proud of is going through the process of adopting my son who is now 11 years old and learning how to be the best parent I can be day by day. The most rewarding part of being a psychotherapist is being able to hold the space for my patients to experience the most sane and compassionate aspects of themselves.

About my practice

My previous work as a school teacher allowed me to see how parenting and various environmental factors (trauma, poverty, violence) can impact a child’s mental health and their ability to learn and thrive. For this reason, I became interested in working with families, couples, children, teens and LGBT. My work with the people I serve is primarily informed by attachment theory. When children experience their parents as a “secure base” from which they venture out to explore and experience the world, they are more likely to expand their interests and inquisitiveness and make healthier choices. At the same time, when children experience their parents as a “safe haven” to return to for support and protection, children become even more emboldened to meet life’s challenges. Attachment theory also informs the way I communicate with my patients by being the “secure base” that allows for safe exploration of the challenges they face. If my patients become overwhelmed I am able to meet them where they are by being the “safe haven” that allows them to reconnect with their inner strengths. Our team is composed of therapists who have a wide range of areas of expertise allowing for deeper understanding and conceptualization of challenging cases. I am constantly learning from our team of experts.

I believe people deserve to live an authentic and fulfilling life. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe environment in which clients can explore their life struggles and figure out how they can reconnect with their authentic self. I also value the importance of establishing a genuine, non-judgmental relationship as the basis for change and to provide people with skills to be able to find their own solutions to new problems. People I have worked with often tell me that the practice of learning to pay close attention to their thoughts purposefully and non-judgmentally, allowed them to see life experiences as being more workable.

How I thrive

My work as a therapist is very fulfilling and emotionally demanding. For that reason, my daily meditation practice provides me with the self-care I need to continue to be available, responsive, and engaged with my patients. I also stay connected to the rejuvenating effects of the outdoors by hiking, camping, skiing, and mountain biking. Recently, my son and I decided to take some fly-fishing lessons. I enjoy all kinds of ethnic foods; especially Indian. In terms of my cooking skills, I like to cook traditional Mexican food but I continue to learn the fine art of seasoning from my sisters who are experts at it.
