I am a Bilingual Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist and Certified School Social Worker. After being diagnosed with not just one but two brain aneurysms and undergoing brain surgery eight years ago, I embarked on a path of self-discovery. Along the way, I experienced a profound emotional and spiritual transformation, cultivated the deep courage to make a full recovery, and ultimately reconnected me with my passion to LIVE ON PURPOSE.
Today, I am a multi-passionate Latina Mompreneur on a mission – to support and mentor young girls, teenagers, and adult women on their own journeys of self-awakening, empowerment, and transformation.
While helping females transform their negative life experiences, depression, anxiety, and self-worth issues I assist them in the process of being able to THRIVE in their every day lives. I believe that every woman is born with a purpose and in order to fully live their lives, they must be passionate about what they do every day to impact their world in a big way.
With over 20 years of experience in the field of psychology, social service and psychotherapy I have serviced children, adolescents, adults, and families in the state of Connecticut.
I have been providing therapeutic services in a variety of settings including school, in-home, outpatient, and crisis intervention. Currently, I am a Certified School Social Worker in the Waterbury Public System.
As CEO of SM-Psychotherapy & Counseling Services, LLC and Founder of The Empowered Woman of Today, I serve as a psychotherapist, speaker, coach, and mentor, for women and groups, empowering them to create more success, fulfillment, and freedom in their lives.
