Navigating the mental health world and finding a good therapist can be challenging, especially when you are trying to find someone that gets you and acknowledges your culture and background. I commend you for taking the first step in your healing journey. Do some of these sound familiar? You recognize the importance of healing generational trauma; you want to enjoy the present-moment however, your mind gets stuck in the past or the future; you want to create meaningful connections, but you end up sabotaging your relationships; you want to embrace your culture and traditions while recognizing unhealthy generational patterns.
Sometimes we don't realize that trauma and emotional pain keep us stuck. We feel unable to move on, enjoy the present, and connect with the people we love. Therapy can help us process and understand past experiences; manage fears and worries about the future; and create headspace to enjoy the here-and-now.
My therapeutic approach is client-centered, culturally-humble, and trauma informed. That means that I will acknowledge and respect your past experiences, your culture, your background, and your wisdom as an expert of your life, while helping you understand your patterns and find more effective ways to face challenges. I am currently taking new Clients!
Navegar el universo de la salud emocional puede ser complicado y agotador. Estar aquí es el primer paso en tu proceso para sanar. Se requiere valentía para reconocer que necesitamos ayuda. Mi estilo terapéutico es centrado en las necesidades de mis clientes, consciente y respetuosa de su cultura, su historia y vivencias. Reconozco la sabiduría de cada persona como experta en su propia vida. Al mismo tiempo ayudo a entender patrones de comportamiento y a encontrar herramientas más eficientes para enfrentar las difucultades.
Tengo extenso entrenamiento en manejo de trauma emocional, incluyendo terapia cognitivo-conductual centrada en trauma (TF-CBT), manejo de trauma en fases y terapia de procesamiento cognitivo (CPT). Tambien incorporo elementos de justicia social, trauma racial, mindfulness/atención plena, así como otras técnicas que integran el trabajo de mente-cuerpo-alma.
Ofrezco servicios terapéuticos en inglés y español. Conozco las necesidades particulares que las personas bilingües presentan y las ventajas que trae el poder expresar emociones y recuerdos en el idioma en que estos fueron experimentados y almacenados en la memoria.
