My Background and Approach

You are the own expert in your own body and experience. Even if the wisdom is buried under fear and doubt, it's there. My goal is to work collaboratively with you to learn skills and uncover the wisdom you already carry to reconnect with the creative, curious, playful and hopeful parts of yourself. The goal is not to drag you through therapy, but to go alongside you as you get to discover more about yourself and what healing looks like for you. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Washington State (LW 611972). I identify as Latinx, immigrant, cisgender female and use she/her/ella pronouns. I have worked in the field of mental health since 2015 and I obtained my Master of Social Work in 2017 from the University of Washington. I work with individuals, couples / partners in the areas of anxiety, trauma, and relationships. EMDR and Emotionally Focused Therapy primarily used in therapy, but I include CBT, DBT Skills, and Mindfulness as well. I tailor therapy to you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We currently live in a society with systems that perpetuates trauma and white supremacy on bodies of all shapes, genders, sizes, locations, and colors. No person is unaffected by trauma of these systems and disconnection within themselves and to their fellow humans due to them. Therefore healing is both internal and external in nature and process. Individual and collective healing is therefore part of the journey of healing. When you feel like nothing you do is good enough, that things won't change, and worry about every decision you make, these internal messages have history--in ourselves, in our family, and our society. I want to hold a space for us to journey into these thoughts and feelings together, understand where they come from, what systems they belong to, and start the process of healing trauma and anxiety. Doing so you'll notice a change in yourself, in your relationships, and the way you engage in the world. We can do it together.
