About me

I was born and raised in South America to a family consisting of my parents and my two brothers. I had a memorable and active childhood as a vivacious and curious child. As I matured, my interest in people facilitated an interest in social issues, particularly the ability to help others lead productive, happy lives. Over time, and in combination with a desire to set meaningful objectives for myself, these characteristics inspired me to move to the U.S. to pursue a degree in clinical psychology at the University of Mississippi. My journey since that time has been remarkable, and it has involved new cultural, professional, and personal experiences almost every day. I moved to the Atlanta area to complete my pre-doctoral internship and fellowship at Emory University School of Medicine's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences working at Grady Health System. During my career, I have been particularly interested in the research and treatment of substance use disorders, unhealthy behaviors, emotional difficulties, suicidality, trauma and positive psychology.

About my practice

I specialize in the treatment of mood disorders (e.g., depression, anxiety, and bipolar), suicidality, trauma, substance misuse and adjustment issues. I also work with adolescents and adults who need help regulating their emotions and overcoming maladaptive behavioral patterns. I provide services in English and Spanish and in individual, group, couples, and family format. My approach to therapy is based on the integration of psychological techniques supported by scientific evidence to address a broad range of psychological difficulties. Particularly, I practice cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical and behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy. Using techniques from these evidence-based approaches, I collaborate with members to: set therapy goals aligned with their values, build the skills needed to overcome psychological and behavioral problems that hinder valued goals, and engage in daily practices that sustain a meaningful life. I am grateful for the opportunity to work at Kaiser Permanente and help our members lead meaningful lives.

How I thrive

I thrive when I have a balance of productivity, leisure time, self-care, and quality time with family and friends. In my free time, I like to explore new places, food, cultural experiences and relax at home.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select providers and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.
