I have experience in supporting queer and trans queer people of color with their mental health needs.
We all face many challenges, stressors, and difficulties within our lives. No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve joy, to have the best quality of life and to live authentically. My goal as a therapist is to provide you with a safe and welcoming space that encourages self-reflection and growth. I believe that therapy is about co-creating therapeutic relationships founded on respect, trust, and compassion.

As a black latinx multi-racial person who identifies as non-binary and trans -masculine, I have experience working with all types of people from many different backgrounds.
Our lives here on earth are a creative experience! At times, we need a place to rest and tend to our inner world. I view the therapeutic process as a brave space to access parts of ourselves that we want to grow and transform. My goal in working with you is to provide a supportive environment that will cultivate an increased awareness of your needs, self-compassion and understanding of who you are becoming.

Through EMERGE Center for Social and Emotional Learning I am working to expand the quality, range and accessibility of services for young people and other marginalized populations, such as people of color and LGBTQ individuals.
Life is full of challenges, but challenges give us the opportunity to look at things in new ways, connect with others and find our inner strengths. My goal as a therapist is to help you in this process. We will work on identifying what you are experiencing, how you got there, where you want to go and what you need to achieve your goals. I strive to be both a focused listener and active participant in sessions, and to create a safe space where clients feel understood and respected. Through the therapy process, we develop a relationship that has the potential to be transformative and healing.

We will work together to create a relationship that feels safe enough to address your concerns. In addition to my private psychotherapy practice I have provided trauma informed therapy to individuals and families in various community based, non-profit agencies, in addition to Clinical Supervision.

As a fat, queer , neurodivergent disruptor of societal norms and systems, I hold a strength-based attachment focused framework that values and celebrates all genders, sexualities, bodies, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, family structures, religions, and socio-economic locations. I see these intersectionalities as a beautiful tapestry of personal empowerments which can become the foundation from which we work collectively to identify, address and dismantle systems of oppression. I believe humans shouldn’t be pathologized in a society designed to keep people sick and stuck.

Areas of special interest include relational distress, self-esteem, trauma, body image, process and substance addiction, LGBTQIA , and multicultural issues.
Do past memories or the future distract you from the precious present? Are you unsatisfied in your relationships–with your partner, family, friends or yourself? I work with adult individuals, couples and families who are interested in moving towards a place of healing by way of exploration, insight, and self-compassion. While my approach to therapy is collaborative and person-centered, therapy is individualized based on the needs of my client, their strengths and limitations, and goals for therapy.

Frustrated? Unhappy? Want some insight and change? I offer an encouraging approach to help you explore your world in a therapeutic environment. I believe that everyone is the expert of their own experience; you have lived your life longer than I have known you. I often use the metaphor of being a flashlight in a dark cave, shedding light on different things, however, you, as the client are in the driver's seat; I am in the passenger seat, as a co-driver. Together, we will explore your personal meanings and experiences while making larger connections to your goals. I invite you to our journey together in creating new meaning.

I also offer specialized services for the LGBT community, including trans children, teens and adults.
Please note: My practice is almost always full, but if you are specifically interested in working with me, call and leave a detailed message. We live in a time of overwhelm and great uncertainty. A time of change, and resistance. Many folks are struggling personally, and we seem to have little power to change the course of the current health crisis, or our political realm. Therapy with an empathetic professional can help during these trying times. Clients find me a compassionate and inspiring change-agent. We must find hope where we can and continue to work for change both personally, in our communities, and in the world.
