As a fluent Spanish speaker, I provide bilingual psychotherapy — including individual, family and group therapy — for people of all ages who are struggling with depression, anxiety, behavioral concerns such as ADHD, and trauma-based symptoms. I also provide therapeutic services to help people function at their best in their roles at home, school and work.
I believe that paying attention to both physical and emotional health is essential to the well-being of individuals and families. I use evidence-based approaches while being sensitive to the unique strengths, cultural values, spiritual beliefs and other differences that may affect a person’s relationships and health behaviors. I am excited to practice at The Portland Clinic as part of a team that provides comprehensive care and is dedicated to building trusting and collaborative relationships with patients.
I grew up in North Carolina and moved to Oregon to attend the School of Professional Psychology at Pacific University, where I received my doctorate. Before joining The Portland Clinic, I provided bilingual psychological services in community mental health clinics and adolescent day treatment centers, and as a member of a home-based family therapy team. I was fortunate to receive specialty training in working with individuals and families within a multicultural framework in my predoctoral internship at the Center for Multicultural Training in Psychology at CMTP-Boston Medical Center, and in my postdoctoral residency at the Pacific Psychology Clinic of Oregon. I am a member of the American Psychological Association and the Oregon Psychological Association.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing and watching soccer, spending time with my family and friends, and exploring the hiking trails and beaches of the Northwest with my dog.
