My Story

Welcome to Three Hearts Therapy and Supervision Services. I provide therapy in English and in Spanish as well as clinical supervision in Maryland. My passion for the social service field began in high school, as I worked as an aid to children living with Autism. I also grew up seeing the stigma surrounding individuals seeking mental health services and wanted to do my part in bridging that gap. I enjoy knowing that I can use my empathy and compassion to offer individuals support in challenging times. 

My Education & Experience

I received my bachelors degree in Social Work from UMBC and my masters degree in Social Work from OLLU. Currently, i'm working toward my PhD in Social Work at OLLU and hope to expand the knowledge and research on first generation college students and their families.

Over the years, I have worked with children, adolescents and adults in a number of settings (schools, clinics, non profit agencies and tele-therapy). Many of the clients I’ve seen, have worked through trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief and loss as well as adjusting to other life transitions. My specialty is in adjustment disorders due to my passion in helping first and second generation Hispanic students navigate their college experiences/ life dilemmas due to engrained cultural norms.
