“Compassion is, by definition, relational. Compassion literally means 'to suffer with,' which implies a basic mutuality in the experience of suffering."
― Kristin Neff, PhD

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Anchorage, Alaska - here to offer my expertise, genuineness, guidance, acceptance through life’s most complex and difficult matters. I care deeply about my clients’ well-being and offer personalized care to each client's particular needs. As a professional psychotherapist, I would be understanding, compassionate, and kind. 

My theoretical orientation is 'eclectic' which means that I draw from many theories depending on what best fit for you. I have provided therapeutic services to those dealing with challenging life experiences. I am a nationally certified EMDR psychotherapist, and I also specialize in treating pre-teens, adolescents, and adults who might be in distress trying to cope with symptoms of complex psychological trauma, depression, anxiety, stress management. I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and I utilize a variety of techniques from Mindfulness, Expressive Art Therapy, Trauma-Informed Care, Solution Focused Therapy, Psycho-dynamic and Attachment theories, Somatic Experiencing, and Cognitive and/or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy techniques; it all depends on what works best for you, your current situation, and your goals. I am bilingual and can provide services in Spanish. I am cognizant of cultural differences and I consider them while providing services.

Clients' well-being is my number one priority, and I go above and beyond to help them through all their obstacles. I provide free phone consultations, please get in touch with me today if you have questions.
