Your story deeply matters to me. I provide relational, integrative, and sex-positive therapy to queer and BIPOC clients. My clients are looking to make their minds and bodies a safe home and are often the first in their families to have the courage to disrupt limiting beliefs and cycles. They seek to challenge expectations as they dare to redefine themselves wholeheartedly. Together, we will make space to explore the impact of generational and personal traumas, navigate the complexities and beauty of intersecting identities, and create meaningful, lasting, and accessible healing practices. Let's connect!
As a queer, Mexican-American psychotherapist, my foundation is deeply rooted in compassion and solidarity. I will be a fierce advocate for you and reflect back the person I see in front of me - one that is resilient and capable. I seek to create a space that is consistently inclusive, affirming, safe, and embraces intentional healing and long-lasting shifts.
I am honored to provide reparative experiences to those who have been negatively affected by therapy and seek to provide a truly transformational experience for first-time and veteran therapy goers. This will be your sanctuary for support and understanding where healing, self-acceptance, and empowerment can occur. I can't wait to hold space for you.
