My inclination is to invite a spirit of radical acceptance and fierce self-compassion, both as a therapist and in my personal life. As a transgender queer Mexican-American and ethically monogamous person, I strive to bring an inclusive and multicultural spirit to my work. I'm also a former sex worker/dominatrix, which makes me especially skilled at working with sex workers and kink/BDSM practitioners.
As all of us have a tendency to get lost in a narrative or storyline, I invite clients to slow down with me and get intimate with their direct experience—the raging emotions in the body, the coming and going of thoughts, the feeling of shaky vulnerability, shame, disappointment, rage, loneliness—honoring it all and creating a safe and nourishing holding space for these lost emotions, perhaps for the first time ever.
I offer individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, coaching, and death doula services.
