She has experience working individually with children, adolescents, and adults in outpatient settings. Mercedes's clinical background has consisted of treating individuals with anxiety disorders, depression, behavioral concerns, and peer relationships, as well as other diagnoses and life challenges.
Mercedes aligns with a person-centered and holistic approach with the integration of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and play and art therapy to provide individualized care to each client. Mercedes aims to create a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental environment, as these are essential for the therapeutic relationship and future growth. Mercedes will work with you and go at your own pace to identify and understand your experience in life and develop goals to learn and implement effective coping skills while honing in on your strengths.
In her free time, Mercedes enjoys spending time with her two dogs, Olive and Lenny, as well as painting and being outside hiking or enjoying time at the beach. When the weather is not in her favor, Mercedes takes joy in relaxing on the couch with a book or catching up on TV shows and movies.

Why Healthcare

Mercedes strives to provide mental health therapy to ensure that the options and opportunities are presented and utilized by people in need, as this was not talked about enough while Mercedes was growing up. The stigma, lack of education, and lack of options have led to many people not getting the services they need, which Mercedes has witnessed firsthand from friends, family members, and colleagues.
