Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or disconnected from yourself or others? Are you hard on yourself and want to learn to stop avoiding? My passion and specialty is helping individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression, unresolved trauma, shame, guilt, and/or self-doubt. I also enjoy helping my clients explore identity, relationship or career issues.
My Background and Approach
It’s tough navigating thoughts and feelings on your own, I’m here to support you. Therapy can help you learn to ground yourself, learn skills to navigate feelings and situations in more compassionate ways, and challenge self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. I am certified in CBT and CPT. However, I integrate a range of therapeutic models to support the diverse unique strengths and needs of my clients. My therapy approach is trauma-informed, LGBTQ+ affirming, anti-racist and social-justice informed. I seek to honor all identities and experiences as I strongly believe in the importance of being seen and heard. I am a bilingual therapist providing video telehealth. If any of this resonates with you and you’re ready to begin your journey to self-growth, I invite you to reach me via email or call me to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, you and I will briefly discuss your needs and figure out if we’re a good fit for each other. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I was raised in a predominantly Latino community and as a child of immigrants, I have insight into the intersection of individual, generational, and collective trauma. I have extensive training in trauma-informed care and it's important that my clients feel safe to express their true selves in my sessions. I celebrate diversity and enjoy working with people from all walks of life. I also strongly believe in the process of psychotherapy but I have first-hand knowledge in the challenges that come with reaching out for help. Let's face it, in many communities there's still so much stigma surrounding mental health and reaching out for help . Sometimes we're taught to keep our problems to ourselves rather than seeking appropriate support to lighten our load. I commend you for being here and I’m here to support your empowerment journey.
