Not Accepting Clients

Partnering with individuals to grow our innate resilience and heal individual, collective, and generational traumas.

Clinical Social Worker in Washington


About My Clients

My approach to healing honors the role the mind, body, and heart, as well as the role of our individual, collective, and intergenerational experiences. My clients often seek support with trauma or stress, anxiety, depression, struggles with relationships, or feeling into their purpose.

My Background and Approach

Through compassion and respect, I partner with my clients to create a healing space where you are welcome to bring your whole self. I practice a resiliency-informed type of therapy that honors the role of the body, mind, and heart in healing, and I also offer EMDR therapy. My experience as a cis-gender, queer, first generation US-born Latina, and trauma survivor guides my path towards radical compassion, connection, integrity, and justice. I draw from learnings along my own healing journey to support the liberation of all.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

--Consent: Your voluntary decision to engage in therapy is the most important part of our relationship. You never have to talk about or do anything that you don’t want to. --Mind-Body Integration: honors the wisdom of the body, as well as the thoughts and feelings that come up in therapy, and can increase awareness of our stress response and of the internal and external resources that support wellbeing. --Non-Judgmental: My priority is the safety and wellbeing of you and the community, rather than what is “right” or “wrong”. --Sex Positive: Sexuality, sexual orientation, gender identity, non-monogamy, sexual trauma are welcomed topics. --Social Justice: Individual healing and the healing of communities who have experienced collective trauma are inextricably linked. --Strengths-Based/Resiliency-Based Healing: exploring “what’s working”, celebrating strengths, and growing our innate resilience, rather than diagnosing or treating “what’s wrong”.
