Sorry! Irene is not accepting new clients at this time.

I have faith in people’s ability to change, heal, and make decisions that lead to balance and well-being. In the midst of difficult times, we have the opportunity to change and discover our inner strength, courage, and resiliency. I am passionate about working with you as you navigate life transitions, relationship dynamics, premarital counseling, improving the quality of your relationships with family, friends, coworkers, partners, or marriage, issues with anxiety and depression, caregiving, grief, and loss. When you can commit to your journey towards healing, transformation, and self-discovery, therapy can give you a clear sense of autonomy and self-confidence to lead a life with healthy boundaries and positive balanced relationships. I am currently in my second year of continuing studies at the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family in Washington, D.C., and have been working with a Bowen Family Systems Theory coach doing my own therapeutic work for two years. Through Bowen family systems theory, clients explore the dynamics of their past and present relationships, shedding light on healthier and more authentic ways of being, empowering them to enjoy more meaningful, fulfilling, and enjoyable relationships grounded in shared responsibility. I am prepared to support your growth and transformation through the counseling process.


In my free time, I enjoy making art, gardening, cooking, and working out. I also love learning about different cultures, languages, and foods. If you are interested in working together, you can reach out to me at 512/201-4501, ext. 271.

Yo tengo fé en la habilidad de las personas para cambiar y sanar, para tomar decisiones que los lleven a una vida plena y armoniosa. En los momentos difíciles de la vida surge la oportunidad de cambiar y de descubrir dentro de nosotros mismos nuestra fuerza interior, nuestra valentía y firmeza de carácter. Mi pasión es trabajar con usted en estos momentos de procesos de cambio, dinámicas de relaciones, terapia prematrimonial, problemas de matrimonio, ansiedad y depresión, perdida/luto, cuidado de padres o pareja. Si usted desea mejorar su salud, transformar sus relaciones y aprender de sí mismo, la terapia le ayudará a tener más control de su vida, más confianza en sí mismo, relaciones más sanas y satisfactorias. Actualmente, estoy en el segundo año de estudios para especialización en el Bowen Center for the Study of the Family in Washington, D.C. y he estado trabajando con una terapista de la teoría de sistemas de familias Bowen por dos años. A través de la teoría sistémica de Bowen, usted puede explorar las dinámicas de sus relaciones pasadas y presentes, descubrir formas más sanas y auténticas de relacionarse y de disfrutar de relaciones más plenas, felices y significativas, basadas en responsabilidad compartida. Estoy preparada para apoyar su crecimiento y transformación a través del proceso de asesoría terapéutica.

En mi tiempo libre, yo me dedico a pintar, tender mi huerto, cocinar y hacer ejercicio. También disfruto aprendiendo acerca de diferentes culturas, lenguajes, y comidas. Si está interesado en trabajar conmigo, me puede contactar a través de mi teléfono 512/201-4501, ext. 271.
