Relationships are the number one element that affect our mental health, and we have the research to prove it. People who are better connected to family, friends, partners, and their community are happier, healthier, deal with fewer mental health issues, and live longer. With specialization in families and relationships, I can help you overcome relationship issues and bring back joy and connection into your relationships with loved ones.
Poly? Open? ENM? CNM? Triads? Quads? Hierarchical? Relationship anarchist? Prefer no label at all? No matter how your relationship is structured, I support you in feeling happier and more satisfied in your relationship(s) by helping you lay the groundwork for the foundation of any solid partnership: trust, open communication, and respect.
I'm here for the queers! As a member of the queer community, being able to provide high-quality mental healthcare to other members of the community is a dream come true for me. Contributing to the health and well-being of LGBTQIA+ individuals, partners, and families is my way of giving back to the community I call home.
I take a somatic, trauma-informed approach to help clients overcome the past at a pace that is comfortable and productive for them. I use trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), emotion focused therapy (EFT), and dialectic behavior therapy (DBT) tools when they are helpful for the client.
Ethical counseling is necessarily multicultural and culturally sensitive. I tailor sessions to your unique cultural background, including your race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and language of origin. I have lived and worked in several countries, having spent most of my career in Latin America. I provide fully bilingual services in English and Spanish, and also speak French and Italian.
Partners often find themselves trapped in a loop of the same arguments that never get resolved. Those recurring arguments, even if they're just about dirty dishes, always point to something bigger. This something bigger is the "thing behind the thing." Whether through individual, couples, or family therapy, we can work together to find the "thing behind the thing" and finally put an end to disagreements.
