Evenings, Weekends

I find that the central issue to work on in life is to develop better self-care and self-awareness to address your needs in a healthy and happy manner. This means developing an understanding that self-care and coping skills are more than just taking time out of your day to take a hot bath or drinking a cup of tea. Self-care is about taking time away from your daily life to provide yourself with a safe space to address your individual needs in a healthy and effective manner. I also find that it is important to develop new ways to meet your needs for long-term care. I find it important to develop healthy and stable relationships with the people we are close to in our lives.

I have worked on developing new ways to engage with people in the community so that we can work to develop and expand self-care skills. I am working on developing an understanding of our individual needs to improve the quality of our relationships and support systems.

I am an English and Spanish-speaking therapist and work especially well with adults, people with chronic illness, and chronic mental health issues, and developing support and self-care skills to improve coping skills to address ongoing mental health issues.

If you’re ready to get started, I always offer a 15-minute consult to see if we are a good fit. I’d love to help you or a member of your family get the help they need to live better.
