As a Queer Latino from East Los Angeles, valuing diversity and intersectionality was not a common practice in both my cultural upbringing or communal environment. I struggled with navigating my identity and being accepted in a community that otherized me for being queer and Latinx. As a member of the LGBTQ + community, I have witnessed first-hand the limited resources and disproportionate discrimination associated with identifying as LGBTQ +. These lived experiences shape my work as a queer therapist of color.

I primarily work with and provide psychotherapy to adults who have experienced trauma(s), including depression and anxiety, acculturation, first-gen college students, gender and sexuality, stressful life changes, and the LGBTQ + community.
Let's be honest; life is complicated. At some point in our lives, we need help from others who can understand our lived experiences, including myself. I imagine what brought you here is that you are looking to improve your emotional and psychological well-being and relationships with others or with yourself. You probably would welcome practical tools to alleviate the additional stress these layers add to an already difficult situation(s). I understand. I've been there too. For most, short-term cognitive behavioral therapy and a solution-focused approach are effective but require active participation in your healing process.

I am sex-positive, kink-aware, LGBTQIA + affirmative, and welcoming to all non-traditional relationships and lifestyles—I consider it an honor to serve my community in this capacity.
Seeking therapy is a brave step. Whether you are presently in crisis or simply feeling a bit stuck in life, I honor the effort & courage that it took you to get here. It suggests that—regardless of how you might feel in this moment—some small (or large) part of you believes in the possibility of a more peaceful, fulfilling life. As a therapist, I am here to not only affirm and amplify that belief, but more importantly, to help you discover and define its reality for yourself.

I use EMDR to help creative people manage anxiety and heal from trauma. We can begin by addressing the worry, the over-thinking, and the tension. You can learn tools to calm the body and quiet the mind. Then we can address the hurtful memories and internal messages that weigh you down. That’s where we’ll use EMDR - a powerful approach to healing old wounds. If you’re ready to go deep in order to heal, let’s talk. My experience includes working with difficult childhoods/difficult pasts, multicultural, LGBTQ +, and spiritual issues.

I specialize in working with members of the LGBTQIA community.
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 work with individuals and couples, artistic minds, ADHD folk, and the LGBTQ community.
Does anxiety make it difficult for you to navigate through your day, leaving you unsure as to what to do with yourself? Or, are you feeling sad or even depressed? Are uncomfortable with loosening restrictions and feeling a bit socially awkward right now? Are you having difficulty focusing and you're wondering what's going on there? Is there a big life decision that you would like to make and you need to talk through? Do you need some time and space to figure out what you'd like to do with your life and how to find your way there. We can work together to determine what feels right for you, and create the change you're looking for.

You are an individual with a unique story. Perhaps you’re a parent who wants to expand what it means to raise a child, maybe you’re processing trauma and working on re-parenting yourself, or you’re exploring questions of gender and sexuality. I come to this work because of stories. Stories of the human condition, stories we tell ourselves, the story that culture tells us, and stories that need repair. Sometimes we need help understanding, processing, or reimagining our stories.

You sat down at your computer to find help, but you’ve been sitting there, immobile. Your body and emotions feel numb, almost paralyzed. Even though you’re stuck, you know it’s time to do something different. You’ve tried finding resilience in the things that used to help…but food, music, even relationships leave you feeling unfulfilled. At work, your inner critic shouts, “You’re a fraud!” Living in Los Angeles takes every ounce of energy you’ve got. And what’s the point if you can’t connect to your own inner strength? Is it even possible to have a genuine and joyful relationship with yourself?

There are times in our lives when we may feel overwhelmed or lost, leaving us feeling stuck or unsure of how to progress. Therapy often sounds daunting as it can carry stigma and judgement, and for that reason I strive to build a solid foundation built on trust and connections with clients.

Many people get to a point in their lives when they feel stuck. Friends and family who used to be able to help are no longer able to, or don’t know how. During these times, it can be beneficial to have a relationship that is different, one in which you can share honestly without feeling judged or misunderstood and, in turn, be asked questions that can enhance insight and spur positive change. Welcome to therapy! As a therapist, I am welcoming, compassionate and curious. Therapy can be hard, so my goal is to help you to feel safe and accepted while engaged in a journey that will naturally involve some discomfort.

Life is about feeling connected, sharing in the joys and sorrows, and striving for something better, a better you. Therapy is a place where you can share and explore the challenges and achievements that make each of us an individual. I believe that forming a safe, non-judgmental relationship is fundamental to therapy and what guides the healing process. We work together in order to gain insight and learn healthy coping skills in managing challenges faced and the feelings associated with them. I believe that the most difficult job is working on ourselves but it is also the most rewarding.

My approach is gentle yet direct; emphasizing authenticity, empathy and humor (when appropriate) within a safe and relaxed environment . I incorporate the principles of mindfulness and self-compassion in confronting issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and patterns of negative thinking. I believe that you enter therapy already equipped for personal transformation. My role is to nurture the emergence of your highest self, and provide support as you begin to trust your innate ability to heal old wounds and discover deep fulfillment. We will work towards embracing imperfection as part of the human experience, and acceptance as the antidote to suffering.
