About

I'm all about empowering members to make decisions motivated by their values, not their intrusive thoughts. It’s important for me to know your concerns and questions before I invite you to commit to therapeutic work. I will take time to listen before I give any recommendations or information. I'm pretty animated most of the time and don’t hesitate to cheer members on and celebrate wins!

My research background provides scientific rigor to my work. I am committed to understanding members while honoring their individuality. I identify as a Latina with a unique cultural and historical background, which impacts the ways in which I approach my work.

I have 26 years of therapy experience and Lourdes is the best therapist I ever had. She sees and treats me holistically and not only my OCD, which is an eye opening and extremely helpful experience. I can really feel, that we are getting somewhere and I'm even excited about the journey ahead.

Lourdes has the ability to give me hope, that my mental state can get better and that she makes me feel welcome, no matter how my mood is. I always feel better after talking to her.

Lourdes is a great therapist. Starting the session, I had been in a very bad state, after the session I felt so much better. I felt understood, encouraged and supported.

Lourdes is outstanding. Although I felt uncertain about the treatment before starting because I thought my subtype (existential) was too tough for most people to tackle, she has been doing it incredibly well while also helping me greatly with agoraphobia - I went from feeling unable to leave my own room to going where I want (mostly). ERP even allowed me to be patient when having dissociation and other weird anxious states, which greatly decreases suffering. For that reason, I have also been panic-free for a while, even though some exposures began with accepting that a panic attack might happen. If you are in doubt about ERP, please go and try it - I spent too much time and money with ineffective therapy, while Lourdes was able to help me out of it in a few months.

I have been struggling with this mental obsession for 15 years that completely deprived me from enjoying anything I used to like in life. I thought I am cursed and almost completely gave up having fun in life. Until I registered in NOCD where I finally found Lourdes who completely and perfectly grasped my obsession. I finally felt some hope again.
