I am a native Spanish speaker born in Colombia and raised in New Jersey.  My father passed away tragically when I was nine years old and from that point on it was my mother and I facing the world.  Seeing her determination to make a better life for us in a new country, her resiliency to face unfathomable grief, and unwavering work ethic definitively shaped the woman and mother that I am today.  

I earned a bachelor’s in psychology from the University of La Verne in La Verne, CA and a master’s in social work from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND.  I am licensed in Florida (FL# SW19588), Georgia (GA #CSW008996) and in Texas (TX #112410) as an independent clinical social worker.  My previous professional experience includes working in child welfare, community mental health, schools, long term care, and in medical settings.  I’ve been working in the mental health field for over a decade and feel honored to support others in their journey to find a better version of themselves which led me to founding Empezar Wellness.  I strive to be warm and open with my clients while maintaining a solution-building approach. My goal is to create a partnership with my clients to help them explore their strengths and develop goals that will get them one step closer to living the life they want.

I provide in-person individual psychotherapy in Jacksonville, FL and virtual services to adults throughout FL, GA, and TX.  As a therapist, I use a collaborative and integrative approach that is centered on solution-building rather than problem-solving.  I specialize in stress, burnout, and anxiety to help improve personal and professional resilience.  I also have extensive experience working with grief & loss, chronic illnesses, life transitions, caregiver burnout, and anxiety/depressive symptoms associated with receiving a difficult diagnosis for the patients or a loved one. 


Initial Diagnostic Evaluation (60 min session)                           $160.00 

Psychotherapy (60 min session)                                               $140.00 

Psychotherapy (45 min session)                                               $125.00 

I am currently an in-network provider for Aetna, United Healthcare, Oscar Health, and Oxford Health Plans. If you're using insurance, your provider will determine your out-of-pocket cost based on your plan.   If I am out-of-network with your insurance provider, I can offer a superbill for you to seek reimbursement directly from you insurance -not all policies offer this option, so verify with your insurance company first.    

If you’re having a financial hardship, let’s discuss it as I might be able to offer a sliding scale based on circumstances and my availability.
