Choosing the right therapist is an important decision and, in considering me, I would like you to know that I am committed to providing a level of care where I place priority in providing you with an experience where you may feel listened to, supported, and being in partnership with me towards your path to finding relief & wellness.
I have dedicated myself to providing services extensively to youth and families, especially in the area of trauma, which includes addressing issues, such as gang involvement, sexual exploitation, immigration trauma, and issues related oppression, racism, and acculturation issues. I am a bilingual Salvadoran-American practitioner who enjoys practicing mostly from a social justice, relational, and psychodynamic approach. In addition to my work in Private Practice, I am an adjunct faculty at a local mental health professional institute and provide trainings throughout the Bay Area on topics related to the LatinX population, trauma informed care, and cultural responsive services.

I am a bilingual, bicultural associate MFT/APCC who has worked with children and families and provided services to LatinX, multicultural and Spanish-speaking families. I work from a psychodynamic, trauma-informed, culturally responsive lens. My hope is that I will be able to provide therapeutic services that will provide opportunity for reflection, insight, and growth, in order to evolve and heal from current and/or past experiences. I am a Bay Area native who takes pride in giving back and supporting my clients in their own personal journeys.
Welcome! My name is Jasmine, and I know first-hand that finding the right therapist to work through life’s challenges can be hard; self-reflection and becoming vulnerable with a therapist can be even harder. I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (#92237). As a bicultural, bilingual cis woman of Mexican American descent who was also the first in my family to graduate from college and become a professional, my experiences inform my holistic approach to therapy. I use a client-centered and relational approach with an equity and social justice lens; I believe that we all have an innate capacity to change, grow, and build resiliency.
I hold many years of experience working with diverse East Bay communities throughout the lifespan. Issues that I am especially skilled with are: the first generation experience (in school or professional life), parentification (role reversal where a child must act as a caretaker of their parent or siblings), anxiety, depression, work and career exploration, intergenerational trauma, and non-violent communication. I look forward to working with you on your path towards healing.
Hi! My name is Monica and I am a bilingual therapist with many years of experience in creating partnerships with youth, adults and families in various settings in managing and coping with stress and many of life’s challenges and transitions (and all the many emotions that come with it!). My biggest role in the therapy process is to meet you where you are in your journey and accompany and support you as we set goals and strategies and work towards healing, health, and wellness together in a way that best suits your comfort-level and your specific needs. I am here to hold, contain, and offer a safe space to join and support you through your own process of personal growth and exploration. Throughout my career, I have always focused myself in working from a relational based, non-judgmental, trauma informed and culturally responsive frame. Each person is so unique that no single one approach is going to suit every healing and growth process. This is why I draw from a variety of different modalities, some including: psychodynamic, humanistic, holistic and cognitive-based approaches, to name a few. And I make sure to do this with compassion, understanding and care while incorporating your values and strengths. Therapy is an act of courage and I want you to know that I appreciate your willingness and strength to show up JUST as you are as we work towards your personal life goals. You’ve already made the first step!
