I identify as a cis-gendered Latinx female. I’m passionate about working with Latinx and BIPOC individuals, first generation college students, the LGBTQ+ community, those struggling with suicidal thoughts or self-harm, and those in substance use recovery.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area. Prior to starting my practice, I primarily worked as a school-based therapist in Peninsula and South Bay neighborhoods.
I care so much about those who feel like “The Other” because that was me, too. For most of my teenage years, I was considered a shy, emo kid. No one understood my interests or hobbies, and my appearance also made me a target. As much as I wanted to be accepted, I also wanted to feel connected, and to choose a path and own it. I wanted to live an unapologetically authentic life. So that's what I help my clients do now.
