I center my clients´ backgrounds, values, and knowledges as the guide to support them in answering any questions they might have. I speak both English and Spanish and like to think that, because of my cultural background (born and raised in Mexico), we can bring a special warmth and levity to sessions making our spaces feel comfortable and safe. Our sessions would involve both exploration and discovery as well as lightness and humour. I am passionate at supporting people who are minorities. I usually work with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, neurodiversity, self-worth, cultural shock, among other things.

I take an existential-phenomenological view when working with clients-which means that I seek to be open to whatever issues you bring to our sessions, without judgement or applying my interpretation. Together we enter into a conversation that examines your experiences, emotions, and thoughts, from which you can make decisions that enable you to respond and react to life and its challenges. Issues are treated according to your experiences of them using a variety of techniques. How we go about things is always personalized and always within your control. Consider me a guide, rather than a guru.

I approach my work from a feminist lens that acknowledges the structural barriers and societal expectations that often influence our experiences. I will seek to empower you and depathologize your experience Through both my work as a therapist and my theological studies prior to this work, I have found myself curious about the innate human capacity to heal, something that I find often begins with undoing aloneness.

If you are searching for a respectful and non-judgmental couples therapist, chances are you've been struggling for a while, just hoping things will get better on their own. My work is focused on couples conflict, relational trauma, and sexuality concerns. Whether the problem is infidelity or another traumatic event, lack of interest in sex, drifting apart in your relationship, or constant bickering and rehashing old arguments, the problems facing you as a couple can be overwhelming. It's natural to feel vulnerable and at the same time yearn for a safe place to talk it out with someone who can help.

My practice is tailored to work with individuals that have experienced and continue to experience trauma in their lives and want to have a safe place to process it and heal from it. My practice focuses on supporting individuals that are survivors of trauma, complex trauma, intergenerational trauma, and somatic responses to trauma—which can include anxiety and low mood. We will explore together how your body, your mind, and your spirit have adapted to cope with past and present traumas and challenges, and how these coping mechanisms have helped you survive. We will also learn new healthy ways to cope and create safety around you.

I use an intuitive client centred approach following the clients emotional, cognitive, and somatic cues. I will join you wherever you are in your journey and provide a safe judgement free space for you to explore and share who you are. I work with individuals that experience a disconnect with themselves or others. Maybe the way that this disconnect shows up for you is through stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, feeling stuck, anger, fear, shame or maybe you need support in giving attention to grief, life transitions or trauma recovery.
