Hi there, I'm Benigna!

As a therapist, I strive to provide clients with an empathetic, compassionate, safe space. I have over fifteen years in the helping profession, supporting and assisting individuals in public health clinics and non-profit community-based organizations. I work collaboratively with clients to identify, explore and process their struggles and challenges. I help clients increase self-awareness and identify and implement safe solutions and coping skills. I work with adults struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, relational problems, grief, substance use, trauma, and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADS). I incorporate behavioral, humanistic, and psychodynamic approaches in my practice.
