Dr. Ortiz

I’ve learned and grown as a therapist through my professional experiences
serving my community working with adults, couples, and families. I’ve provided clinical support and guidance to patients of different walks of life, experiences, cultures and traditions, including monolingual Spanish speakers. As a therapist, I’ve helped people faced with overwhelming life stressors, trauma, anxiety, and depression. I’ve provided therapeutic support to individuals feeling troubled by recent life transitions, grief and loss, difficulties with employment, or relationship issues involving intimacy and communication. In the years serving as a clinical psychologist. I have come to appreciate and value our desire and need to relate to others in healthy ways, while maintaining our sense of autonomy. I strive to help clients create healthy boundaries for themselves, while taking great care in exploring, identifying and preserving cultural and traditional value systems within their relationships.

I work with teens and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, and stress. I have expertise in supporting individuals with the diagnosis or features of ADHD (Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder). Additionally, I help couples and families adjust to changing circumstances and improve communication. Along with my professional experience, I have the personal experience of sitting in the client chair. Coming from a multicultural, blended family, I understand the complexities and nuances in diverse family systems. And it’s these perspectives I bring to my work with clients- considering each whole person in my approach to treatment. I use an eclectic theoretical approach, incorporating theories such as Psychodynamic, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Person Centered, Narrative Therapy, Systemic and Structural Family Therapy along with Mindfulness and Somatic techniques. In addition to talk therapy, I offer Art Therapy as an expressive modality that can be incorporated to support your goals. It allows for processing through creative expression, engaging our senses, and meaning-making.

I help those who may struggle with roller coaster moods, big emotions, and high levels of stress or anxiety that drive day-to-day habits and interactions. We all find ways to deal with our inner and outer worlds, but sometimes those familiar ways of coping aren’t helpful long term or we outgrow what once worked for us. I believe building the mind-body connection through Mindfulness is key to deepening awareness and understanding. Learning to tune into the messages our body sends and working through the thoughts, feelings, behaviors and beliefs that keep us stuck or repeating damaging patterns helps pave the way for long lasting change. We’ll work together to develop practical strategies for coping, behavior activation, stress reduction, assertive and interpersonal communication. I look forward to developing a therapeutic relationship with you and supporting your growth.
