WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT GATHER AND GROW OC?
I’m grateful to be a therapist with Gather and Grow, a nurturing community for therapists and clients alike, normalizing mental health conditions and creating hope in an individuals ability to grow. I am a Bilingual Spanish/English speaking Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and will be working with children, youth, couples and families. I was drawn to therapy by my innate interest in how our experiences effect our sense of self and passion in helping people grow and step out of their pain and into their light, understand their value, believe their life is worth living and deserve to be loved in spite of what they have been told.
SCHOOL AND TRAINING HISTORY
I completed my BA in Communicative Disorders at California State University Fullerton and my MS in Clinical Psychology at Vanguard University. As a therapist I have been drawn to working with underserved communities (Spanish speaking, POC, at risk youth, LGBTQIA+, individuals with Autism and other Neurocognitive conditions) and providing therapy in both English and Spanish to help children, youth and their families find their voice, heal, repair relationships and eliminate the stigma of mental health treatment in Spanish speaking communities.
Working with both marginalized and underserved communities I have found myself being drawn to and working with individuals in active crisis and complex trauma. My specialty is working with those struggling in their darkest moments and helping them find their light as they discover their inherent ability to heal.
I utilize Psychodynamic, Family Systems, Solution, Focused, CBT and DBT informed care. I enjoy incorporating holistic approaches to my practice such as mindfulness, meditation and essential oils (aromatherapy) as well as in my own life. I’ve learned how important it is to create life balance and practice what I teach clients which is why I believe developing self-love and actively practicing self-care is essential for healing and growth. I look forward to supporting you in finding your voice, strengthening your self-love and healing!
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT BEING PART OF THE GATHER AND GROW OC COMMUNITY?
I absolutely love being a therapist and believe it is an honor and a privilege to support and witness your story, growth and healing. With Gather and Grow OC, I am part of a larger community of openminded, creative, intelligent, good-hearted therapists and individuals who wholeheartedly believe in creating a purposeful and open, safe space for all to gather and grow together in their journey to self-empowerment and healing.
