I am a bilingual (in Spanish) psychotherapist and a clinical social worker. I am located in Winston Salem, North Carolina, however, my clients are located throughout the state. I completed my Master of Social Work degree at UNC Chapel Hill. For the first five years of my career as a therapist I worked as a school-based therapist, providing individual and group psychotherapy for students, and also in a community mental health clinic where I specialized in serving the Hispanic/ Latinx community. My clients have ranged in age from 6- to 75-years old.
I am also certified through the EMDR International Association in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and have received extensive training in Internal Family Systems and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I attained fluency in Spanish while living and working in Spain, studying in Guatemala, and working with the diverse Hispanic/Latinx communities in central North Carolina.
Outside of work, I enjoy time alone and with my friends and family by staying active outside, experimenting with new recipes, reading fiction, watching comedy shows, traveling, and trying new things. Long before becoming a therapist I wanted to be an environmental scientist and obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Conservation Biology from Warren Wilson College.
