Individual & Relationship Psychotherapy with Adults
I am a student therapist and doctoral student in clinical psychology at Pacific University. I completed my Master’s degree as a part of my doctoral training in 2017. I currently work under the supervision of Megan Cormier Castañeda, PsyD and Camille Curry, PsyD. My training focus is in multicultural psychology with an emphasis on working with the Latinx Spanish-speaking population. I have worked in community and healthcare settings and have experience in cultural adaptation of evidence-based treatment. I work with individuals experiencing a variety of life issues, such as anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, trauma, identity development, and general life stressors.
I strive to approach therapy from a place of cultural humility and curiosity. I use an integrative and relational framework in therapy and see it as a collaborative process in which we work together to build understanding of your experience and our ways of relating to one another. I integrate a variety of approaches, including existential/humanistic, emotion-focused, acceptance and commitment (ACT), and narrative therapies. I believe that psychological wellbeing is shaped by the complex interaction between mind, body, relationships, culture, and environment. Through exploration and understanding each of these areas and the places where they overlap or interact, we can become personally empowered in our lives.
