My Areas of Practice

I am a Masters Psychotherapist/ Behavioral Sleep Therapist for the Park Nicollet Behavioral Health Department in the Maple Grove Specialty Center and in the Park Nicollet Pulmonary/Sleep Clinic in Meadowbrook. I am a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist working with patients from as young as 8 years-old to 99 years-old, who are experiencing Mood Disorders (i.e. Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar); and Trauma which are causing them distress. My experience enables me to educate and assist patients to develop the skills and the confidence to manage these problems affecting their lives. I also practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy –I[nsomnia]: which treats insomnia and its underlying causes – thoughts (cognitions), emotions and behaviors (habits) that may co-occur with other sleep disorders, as well as mental health condition, medical condition(s). Utilizing CBT-I can assist adults and adolescents to redevelop their confidence in their sleep as well as help the patients who wish to taper off sleep medications. I also see children as young as 8 years who struggle with Mood Disorders and problems related to sleep (i.e. Night Terrors, Nightmares and general anxiety about sleeping).

Since 1999, I have worked as a Bilingual (Spanish/English) psychotherapist in many specialties including, Eating Disorders, LGBT individuals and families, MI/CD, Multi-ethnic Acculturation, Pain Disorders, and Women’s Issues.

I have worked in diverse settings:  including working bilingually in a Latino Mental Health clinic, in St. Paul, working in a Community Mental Health clinic in South Minneapolis, working in a HealthPartners clinic, working in a Community Mental Health clinic in Southwestern Minnesota, working in Park Nicollet/Melrose Institute; and working in the ER at Regions Hospital in downtown St. Paul.

Personal

I am grateful to be a clinical mental health practitioner at Park Nicollet working to enhance the lives by helping them to understand themselves, their challenges and reinforcing their strengths. Truly I have been enriched in knowledge and experience, by listening to patients tell their personal stories. I enjoy biking, photography, walking in the outdoors, gardening, watching Viking and Gopher football, taking my niece to the Children's Museum, attending my nephew's choir concerts, and listening to MPR.
