About My Clients

Do you feel as though you are seen and understood in relationships? Maybe you struggle to find affirmation in your needs and desires. Or perhaps, you feel the pressure to be something you are not. You are not alone. Many of us struggle to feel "normal" in a world that pathologizes who we are and how we function. The therapeutic relationship can offer you a place to explore the parts of yourself that feel unknown or marginalized.

My Background and Approach

I am deeply rooted in the relationship and operate from feminist, attachment-focused and existential perspectives. As we often experience harm within relationships, I also believe that relationships create the pathways for healing. This begins with the Therapeutic Relationship. It is here where you can explore feelings, ask questions, share experiences, process intense emotions, grieve losses, and celebrate successes. It is a great honor to support those navigating transitions, challenges and conflicts related to identity & relationship. I’m also passionate about working with young people as they transition into “adulthood”.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a Queer, Latinx + white person, I have experience living in the intersections. As a therapist, I work to understand the unique identities and experiences of each of you. I'm committed to supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, including those who are non-binary, gender diverse, and individuals exploring their sexuality and/or identities. I have experience working with folks in non-traditional relationships and take an affirming stance on sex work. I recognize all forms of oppression to be inseparable from experiences of mental health. You are the expert on your own life, and our relationship is built on trust and collaboration. Let us unearth the wisdom you already hold and plant new seeds for growth and change. Together, we can build the skills you need to better inhabit your body, experience pleasure and joy, and take up space in your life and your relationships.
