I believe collaboration and compassion are at the root of a successful therapeutic relationship. I offer an open, non-judgmental space where you can speak honestly about your thoughts and experiences while working towards your personal goals. I use a client-centered and trauma-informed approach and enjoy incorporating mindfulness and somatic exercises to aid in regulating emotions and releasing the stress held in the body. Some areas I am especially passionate about working with are anxiety, life-transitions, gender, sexuality, identity, relationship dynamics, self-esteem, depression, sexual assault, trauma and chronic pain.

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!

My approach is holistic and integrative, drawing primarily from insight-oriented, relational, cognitive, somatic , and trauma-informed perspectives.
You’re feeling worried, stressed, and overwhelmed with the day-to-day hustle of life, and you feel like you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. You look like you've got it all together on the outside, but you’re struggling to feel like you’re enough on the inside. You're trying your best to hold it together, but you’re exhausted. It feels like no matter what you do, life still feels all over the place. You're ready to press the pause button and tend to yourself - to get to know how you feel, to think about what you want, and to make choices that serve your well-being. You're ready to make some changes but not sure how.

While I have broad experience working with persons from diverse backgrounds and experiences, my areas of specialty are: * Trauma-informed therapy * Individual/couples/poly with relationship difficulties * Sexuality and sexual dysfunction * LGBTQ+ struggles * Discrimination at work or in personal life * Use of mindfulness and somatic therapy for anxiety, anger, and pain.
I wholeheartedly believe that you are your own expert on your life. Through therapy, my goal is to help you identify and work through the challenges and obstacles that may be standing in the way of gratifying relationships, a satisfying work life, and living the life you wish to lead. Your problems are not what define you as a person. I am interested in helping you clearly express your strengths, hopes, and values, which may have become lost amidst life's struggles. I do my best to create a safe and supportive environment with warmth, respect, kindness, curiosity, and a little humor.

My connection to the mental health field comes from a deeply personal place — as a first generation female-Latinx born in the USA to Ecuadorian parents and the first person in my family to attend college, I grew up with many of the common challenges that female-Latinx folks face, especially regarding the taboo around mental health.

My clients come to therapy seeking some form of healing in their lives and we get to work together to make that a reality.

I enjoy intuitively finding the strengths in each of my clients and supporting their healing journeys from a place of collaboration and compassion.

I use EMDR, narrative exposure therapy (story telling), CBT, and somatic techniques that are proven to help diverse people heal from traumatic or overwhelming life experiences.
You are a complex being. You've had painful life experiences that continue to impact you even though you don't want them to. You may find yourself feeling stuck, reacting in ways that don't make sense, and reliving past experiences over and over in your thoughts or even in your dreams. Fear comes out of nowhere, and it is exhausting being on guard all the time. It may feel like you can't trust anyone, sometimes not even yourself. But healing is possible. You deserve joy, peace, and deep healing. When you heal, you heal the generations before and after you.

Personal discovery and growth is one of life's greatest challenges but also provides one of life's greatest rewards. Through my own healing journey to address childhood trauma, I did many years traditional talk therapy. While I found this to be helpful, it wasn’t until I discovered somatic experiencing (SE) therapy that I began to experience a deep settling in my body and mind in a relatively short period of time. This settling of the nervous system can lead to a newfound sense of feeling present and engaged in life. One gains more capacity to experience positive emotions, tolerate negative emotions without becoming overwhelmed.

I utilize a somatic psychotherapeutic approach which incorporates the wisdom of mind and body.
I understand the importance of needing to feel understood and seen. When therapy is successful, we often will experience a greater sense of spaciousness inside ourselves, freedom from our own judgments, and are reminded that confronting our pain won’t destroy us. The goal is not a short-term fix but instead a long-term shift that brings forth feelings of empowerment, resiliency, and a confidence that our brains and our lives can change. As a consequence of shifting our relationship to ourselves and to our pain, the uncomfortable symptoms often associated with anxiety, trauma, and depression begin to dissolve and loosen their grip.

Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud." -Thich Nhat Hanh. We all have moments of feeling stuck and scared. Life brings us countless challenges and obstacles and sometimes we need support from others to help us get through difficult times. Seeking therapy is the beginning of you blooming into a lotus flower and rising from the ashes. You have the answers within you and the capacity to heal.
