I would like to welcome you to taking your first step in self work and healing. It is a difficult step but you have accomplished it.
I myself am bilingual English/Spanish. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist. I am specialized in trauma, anxiety, depression, couples therapy, and family therapy. Primary approaches that I utilize are EMDR, Gottman Couples Therapy, Family Systems, and CBT. I am also skilled in other approaches such as SFBT, and mindfullness.
With EMDR I am trained in a few advanced protocols such as ASSYST, PRECI, IGTP (Dr. Ignacio Jarero). These approaches are utilized with individuals and group settings for recent and ongoing traumatic stress. Some examples may be recent traumatic experience of a mass shooting, car accident, death of a loved one, diagnosis of a terminal illness, recent divorce, natural disaster, etc. Examples of ongoing traumatic stress may be getting diagnosed with terminal illness and having to deal with the traumatic experiences that come with such a diagnosis. I offer traditional weekly individual treatment of these approaches, I am also able to offer video EMDR intensives, If you are interested in this approach please call our office and we will set you up with an appointment. If your experience is not listed above please don't hesitate to call and inquire about it.
I am licensed in the state of CA and WA, and able to offer telehealth/online therapy for those seeking therapy and live/reside in these two states. Due to COVID-19 I am only providing online/video sessions. I provide online EMDR online as well.
I am a clinical supervisor in both CA and WA for unlicensed therapists. If interested please email or call our office to get further information.
