Interests

I was born and raised in Mexico City. I am a fluent Spanish-speaking therapist. I grew in a small family of 4, my parents and my younger sister have been part of my life supporting me every single step in becoming myself. I am married to a wonderful man; we have 2 beautiful daughters who like to spend time together as a family. I enjoy music, dancing, interior design and traveling. If I am not busy attending my family and work, I am busy creating things, so I like to put my creative energy into making home décor projects. I have a tremendous love for exploring different places, cultures, and diversity. I love to embrace connections with people and be a part of the process towards making healthy and positive lifelong changes.

Comments on DRA

I am honored to be part of the team at DRA. In therapy, I use individual and family strengths-based approaches to facilitate growth and healing in relationships, and support change for all the diverse and unique experiences of my clients. I have worked with children, youth and families on post-traumatic growth, risky relationships and life transitions.
