My practice is always kink conscious, sex positive , LGBTQ friendly, and culturally humble.
My clients tend to be highly reflective individuals who have already begun a journey of self-discovery- either through therapy, spiritual / psychedelic practice, or self-study. They often have core wounds holding them back from cultivating the meaning and joy they are deeply seeking in their lives. As a therapist, my role is to cultivate a container of trust that allows the client to access their innate inner wisdom. Together, we utilize a range of therapeutic modalities to support the client's somatic healing and increase their capacity to sit in a state of radical acceptance. If this approach resonates, reach out!

I also work with members of the BDSM, kink , and poly communities and create a safe space for the development of new paradigms and beliefs.
Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

I believe therapy heals from the inside out, cultivates resilience and growth, builds a life of meaning and purpose, empowering one to fully engage with life as their authentic self. In a welcoming, sex-positive, affirming, judgement-free environment, together in partnership with you. I will mindfully customize my approach to meet your unique needs and comfort level, to bring about growth and change that goes beyond relieving distress. What I love about therapy is the journey, being able to help clients identify and enact value driven choices, accomplish goals that promote actualizing the meaningful life in which they envisioned.

I have a passion for working with individuals seeking support with depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, relationship changes, body image, cultural identity, gender expression, kink and mental health needs related to Black and LGBTQ+ mental health.
We are all trying to be the best version of ourselves and sometimes we need help learning who that person is. I believe that the purpose of therapy is to help you identify challenges that are preventing you from becoming the person you want to be and living a happy healthy life. Through the development of a collaborative therapeutic relationship; I can support you in identifying your strengths to empower you to overcome the challenges that are affecting your happiness and growth.

I provide relational somatic therapy for adults, kids & teens. Therapy with me is integrative, including woven layers of modalities designed with your specific needs in mind. Our work is a collaboration with your mind, body, and soul. Non-judgement. Warmth. Active conversations and appropriate humor. Integrative therapy works successfully to treat mental health issues, emotional distress, and trauma triggers, and is great for kids/teens through art-therapy, body-awareness, and non-directive play. Psychotherapy, to me, is personal, political, & social. It takes courage, strength, and hope to live into who you really are.

I am a Queer, Kink , Poly friendly therapist of color who truly understands the limitations and joys our world can bring.
Being a therapist not only involves the training we are provided nor the previous clients with whom we have worked with. In my opinion, it involves the humility to allow one's client to feel safe enough to share the most vulnerable parts of their experiences in order for both of us to feel connected and moving in the same direction. My style of treatment follows my beliefs above. While we take our time bonding, I will be working to put the pieces together that you may be unable to see. Once we have a pattern established, we will go at your speed, perhaps with a light nudge from me, in order to discover the origins of your issues.

I incorporate my intuition, creativity, sensitivities, & bubbly spirit to facilitate a space to connect to your inner knowing, & to heal what brought you to this search. Occasionally, you may protect yourself by going on autopilot & moving through the motions. Pain can manifest through avoidance, dissociation, depression, or anxiety to bury it until we have the space & tools to actively & intentionally heal. It is a learning process to remember how to truly connect to our intuition that can become entangled behind our masks, roles, responsibilities, & expectations.

Whether you are coming in experienced in therapy, no experience, with specific goals, or just checking in, I am glad you are here. Over my years of service I have emphasized the importance of representation in the mental health field. As a Queer Latinx therapist I incorporate my education in Women's Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and Chicanx Studies into my theoretical framework. It can be difficult asking for help but I am glad you are taking this first step. También ofrezco servicios en Español y creo en la importancia de recibir terapia en el idioma en el que se sienta más cómodo.

Money, vacations and good food can make us happy, but how long does this feeling last? Sustainable happiness comes from within, unobstructed by past injuries and external influences. When we operate disconnected from our inner wellbeing, we feel lost, unsatisfied, depressed, anxious...the list goes on. As your therapist, our purpose is to nurture and witness your journey back to your true essence and to facilitate a process that will lead you to a life of wellness and authenticity.

If you are sick of having the same fight on repeat, staying up all night, alternating between doom-scrolling, online shopping, and planning imaginary trips, and you've run out of people you can turn to (because your religious/conservative/disconnected family is not an option, and you're too shy to keep telling your friends the same sob story) - I'm your therapist! OK, but if you need a therapist who won't flinch, who will go at the pace of the slowest part of you, and will listen and actually believe you: I'm your therapist! AND, if it's important to you that I am a WOC and openly queer...I'm your therapist!

When deciding to see a therapist, it is important to find a fit that is right for you. This is why my practice aims to provide deep and safe sessions that ignite real insight, exploration, hope and change. You need a safe space, knowledgeable support and a collaborative effort. With over a decade of working in counseling psychology and extensive post graduate work in depth-psychology, dreams, and more, I am confident that our time together can help you discover the infections beneath difficult symptoms, the hidden treasure within our greatest obstacles and desired support at a pace that is right for you.

Does it feel like you are your own worst enemy? Maybe you came from a family situation where you always somehow ended up feeling like you were “not good enough.” And now it shows up in your relationships, with you feeling insecure and afraid of being abandoned. In your work life - putting immense pressure on yourself to be “perfect.” And now you’re looking for therapy (and probably putting pressure on yourself to find just the right therapist so you don’t fail horribly at personal growth and confirm all your self-doubts.)
