I provide psychoeducation and hands-on practice on coping skills with a variety of different symptoms and diagnoses. I specialize in Anxiety and Depression in youth (12+ years) through adulthood. Many clients already use coping skills without even knowing it! I want to guide and support you by educating and validating individualized coping skills in your everyday life. Hands-on practice and use of skills in the office are engaging, fun, and easy to learn no matter where you are in your therapeutic journey. I love using art and mindfulness activities during our walk therapy sessions, as well as in the office.
Sexual development and sexual identity are important topics that I like to support and validate clients on. The way parents, peers, and society educated us, may encourage negative feelings on our sexuality. Sexual development is a normal and healthy topic to process due to past trauma, body image, and lack of connection with our body, and sexual stigma.
Self-identity includes being part of the LGBTQIA community, race, and culture which may impact self-acceptance and self-awareness. I want to help guide you as we break down those societal and cultural pressures that have been put on you! You are not a label or characteristics society has given you. I am excited to work together on your therapeutic journey!
Brindo psicoeducación y práctica de técnicas para relajamiento con variedad de síntomas y diagnósis diferentes. Me especializo en ansiedad y depresión en jóvenes (12+ años) hasta la edad adulta. ¡Muchos clientes ya usan technicas de relajamiento sin saberlo! Quisiera guiar, apoyar, y educar en técnicas individualizadas que podrán usar en su vida diaria. Aprenderemos el uso de técnicas en la oficina de una manera divertida y fácil de aprender sin importar en qué parte de su viaje terapéutico se encuentre. Me encanta usar actividades de arte y atención plena durante nuestras sesiones de terapia de caminata, así como en la oficina.
El desarrollo sexual es un tema importante en el que me gusta apoyar y educar. La forma en que los padres, compañeros y la sociedad nos educaron puede fomentar sentimientos negativos sobre nuestra sexualidad. La sexualidad es un tema normal y saludable de procesar debido a s traumas pasados, imagen de tu cuerpo, y falta de conexión con nuestro cuerpo.
El auto-identidad incluye la cultura y raza, ser parte de la comunidad LGBTQIA, lo que puede afectar aceptarnos y la auto-conciencia. ¡Quiero ayudar a guiarlo a medida que derribamos esas presiones sociales y culturales que se le han impuesto! No eres una etiqueta o características que la sociedad te haya dado. ¡Estoy emocionada de trabajar juntos!
