I help my LGBT clients to feel empowered, secure, and motivated. As a trauma-informed therapist, I'm interested in integrating the connection between the mind, body, and environment, to facilitate a transition from survival to flourishing, from coping to thriving. I'm passionate about working with a diverse array of individuals and couples to facilitate wellness in the mental, physical, sexual, and spiritual sides of life. Wellness is not merely qualified by high functioning or low functioning, but is a much more nuanced peace in your self and surroundings. I'm looking forward to learning more about you and how I can help.

I strive to support my clients in feeling understood and accepted. I believe that growth and healing happen in a safe, non-judgmental space where you can share honestly and openly.

Do you feel stuck and worried you may not be able to find help? Maybe you have a habit or behavior you want to stop or change but can't seem to make more progress. Perhaps you're unhappy, anxious, or feel crazy sometimes. By the time many folks seek therapy for themselves or their child they have been hurting for a long time. Finding someone you can work well with is often very difficult. Love working with toddlers, kids, & teens. Am especially passionate about work with LGBTQ + folx.

Welcome! As a therapist I am passionate about providing gender-affirming care to individual adults who are transgender , non-binary, gender-expansive, or gender-questioning. I also support individuals with experiences of queer sexualities and have specialized training in grief and loss. My priority is to create a supportive and safe space to help you discover the path toward living your authentic life in a safe way.

I have served women, men, the LGBTQ community and families with substance abuse problems to have healthier lives.
Do you feel unsatisfied and unhappy with where you are? Does your substance use stop you from realizing the life you deserve? Have you hit a point in your life where it’s getting harder and harder to hold it all together? Do you say “everything is fine” just to keep people away? Do you minimize or ignore the harm alcohol or other drugs do to you? Can you imagine what it would be like if the weight was lifted? It will take courage for you to decide that you need help. By doing so you will create a life that you feel is worth living. A life where you are confident, fulfill your needs, and gain control over your life.

I am drawn to work with people of Latino decent at different levels of acculturation, adults, couples, families, and the LGBTQ + community.
Working with clients has taught me each client, couple, and/or family is unique and deserves a treatment plan that is formulated to their needs. I have discovered that my job is to meet the client where they are at and to utilize a modality or set of modalities that best serves my clients. I have learned a successful therapist is able to hold a mirror up to the client and peel back the layers so the client can address what brought them to therapy. However, the issue that brings clients to therapy is not always the presenting problem, but a symptom of a deeper issue.

My practice is an LGBTQ + safe space.
You may be feeling not good enough, stuck in a toxic relationship, uncomfortable asking for help, scared of conflict, intimidated, taken advantage of. You can achieve, tough it out, and make other people happy, but aren’t really happy yourself. You seem FINE on the outside, but anxiety lingers underneath. You want enjoyment, connection, and to be respected.

I am a proud ally of the LGBTQIA + community.
Asking for help isn't always easy, but we aren't meant to endure life's challenges alone. Reaching out for help is itself a brave and beautiful act of self love, and in doing so you will prove to yourself the depth of your abilities and the unlimited potential for growth which you possess. I believe you are capable of so much, and my goal is to work collaboratively with you to help you achieve what you want to get out of your one, incredible life.

I work with adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, LGBTQ + concerns, disassociation and trauma, and with couples and families facing conflicted relationships.
Our experiences form an unconscious ‘blueprint’, which shapes our beliefs and aspirations, but also the fears and challenges we face. Gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and the patterns that run your life allows you the freedom to make new choices and respond differently, transforming your relationships with yourself and others. In our work together, I will support you on your journey towards self-awareness that can lead to a profound change. My therapeutic approach is warm, direct and authentic. I believe feeling safe, accepted and heard are all critical elements for therapy to succeed.

Low desire or pleasure, lacking sexual confidence or tools to communicate regarding needs in long term or dating relationships. Wanting to reclaim fun, intimate sex life following transitions such as children, work changes, medical issues or trauma. Self-critical, worried all the time. If these words (or others) describe you, let's talk. Do you say hurtful things to yourself you would never say to someone else? I can help provide the safe space and direction including evidenced based practice of ACT as well as self compassion. I also work with folx on the LGBTQ + spectrum to support your wellness as well as identity exploration.

I am LGBTQ affirming, sex positive, and gender expansive.
As life hands us stressors and obstacles, there are times when we just don’t have the tools to get out on top. We may have learned unhealthy habits that are too difficult to break out of on our own. That’s where therapy comes in. I believe that with some guidance, everyone can break those unhealthy habits, learn those coping skills, make the changes needed to have a happy and fulfilling life. We cannot predict or control what happens around us. We can only react the best way we know how. Everybody deserves to be seen and heard, and, with the support of therapy, discover their own goals, strengths, and healthy habits.

What type of Los Gatos mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Los Gatos?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
