Accepting Clients

I'm a first generation Latinx psychologist providing decolonized, anti-racist, anti-oppressive therapy to fellow BIPOC folx.

Psychologist in San Pedro, CA

About My Clients

I specialize in working with Latinos and other people of color (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) who are working hard, often living and working in White-dominated spaces. Each of my clients has unique struggles and histories that they want to address and finally get past, on their way to the life they're working so hard to create.

My Background and Approach

You’ve worked hard to get as far as you’ve gotten in life, but it’s exhausting. All around you, people with more privilege and opportunities seem to be having a far easier time achieving the external success you strive for. Like me, you’ve always known that as a person of color, you’ll have to work twice as hard to get half as far as your white counterparts. It sucks. It’s fucking maddening. Here you are, a perfectionistic overachiever trying to thrive in a world that isn’t set up for your success. So, you keep your head down and work hard again, knowing that it’s what you need to do. But holding in the frustration gets to you when you stop. You find yourself ruminating on negative thoughts and resentments. And that affects your mood, self-confidence, and relationships. Believe me, I’ve been there. And, it was therapy that changed it all for me. Therapy was always my best investment, and I'm passionate about making sure it'll be your best investment as well.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

At the heart of my personal and professional life are my passions for anti-oppression, social justice, and how we heal from the pain of our past and present. I believe that my purpose in life is to have the strong shoulders that others can stand on so that we can reach greater heights together. I bring my whole self to every session. My journey of upward-mobility has come with a lot of racial trauma, heartache, and the existential questions of who I am and why I'm here. And, while I'm more trained than most therapists I know, much of what I bring to my clients isn’t from my academic training. My path in life may have started out with feelings of worthlessness, but it has also led me to living a life I truly love - a life that feels free and joyful. What I love about becoming free is that I want that for you as well. It's my life's passion, and I hope to share it with you.
