I lived in 3 different countries throughout my formative years which has inspired in me a love for multiculturalism, open-heartedness, resilience, and a passion for helping people heal. I am an LGBTQ + affirming therapist. Additionally, I am genuinely respectful and considerate of all different sexual and gender identities, cultures, ethnicities, and faiths. I draw from my interest, knowledge, and experience with depth psychotherapy, mythology, and eco-therapy to assist my clients.

Maybe you've been in therapy in the past but the changes you were looking for never really happened. You haven't been able to think your way out of your past traumatic experiences and now life seems to be adding new problems to the old ones. I am Katy (she/her) an LMFT and a somatic therapist working in mental health for more than a decade. Somatic Experiencing therapy is a gentle method of working with and resolving chronic stress and trauma that may have resulted in problems with relationships, anxiety, depression, and problematic substance use.

I provide them with a empathetic and supportive environment to explore these challenges, and develop goals and interventions to grow and heal.

Through telehealth-, home-, and school-based services, I meet my clients where they are. Usually families come to me because they feel stuck. Their child has difficult emotions, acts out, and cannot seem to listen. Teachers and parents struggle to feel effective and worry about the child’s future. Everything feels complicated and out of control.

As a Latina/mother/daughter/wife, I understand the difficulty of making time to prioritize my wellness. As people of color we often hear " we have gone through worse and didn't need therapy" "our people don't need therapy, thats a white thing" "tu no estas loca." These expressions are meant to celebrate the resiliency of our people but beneath the surface they are damaging. By denying our humanity, we downplay the effects mental illness can have on us, our family and our community. We ignore our own pain and suffering, in an effort to show our "strength."

My work has ignited my passion to work with people who live life through the lens of multiple cultures: the culture you might be born into and your ever evolving one. If you find yourself in a different country or environment, whether its creating a better opportunity for your family, education, or professionally based. Experiencing confusion and feelings of not belonging, isn’t uncommon.Being in an interracial or intercultural relationship adds its own layer of obstacles and difficulties. You might notice that your experiences through the world differ, and even your life expectations.

I also have an expertise in the areas of relationship issues, addiction recovery and LGBTQ affirmative therapy.
I believe creating safety within a non-judgmental environment is crucial to begin the journey of self-exploration, recovery and healing. Each person has their own unique set of beliefs, experiences and needs. Working together, we identify the goals and direction of therapy. In my work with individuals and couples I use a feminist, empowerment-focused and collaborative approach. As a guide in my clients' journeys, I help clients face their challenges and find ways to move through them. I know the path can be difficult at times, and I look forward to working with those ready to explore those next steps.

My areas of specialty include the LGBTQIA + experience, cultural stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationships.
Healing is a deeply personal journey, and integral to this process is having a nonjudgmental space where you can feel safe and heard. Therapy can be that safe place to explore aspects of your identity you may never have addressed, reconnect with wounded parts of yourself, and foster a greater sense of acceptance to help you to handle the many stresses of life. Whether your concerns involve childhood trauma, life transitions, or relationship issues, I will meet you where you currently are with empathy and patience.

I hold a Master's degree in Social Work from Hunter College in New York City where I advocated for transgender women of color engaged in survival sex work.
Therapy can be a transformative experience of acknowledging Self and finding a higher level of functioning. The relationship between therapist and client facilitates gentle and foundational changes aiming to discard dysfunctional coping skills and to acquire healthier tools for living. I intend to create an accepting and nonjudgmental space and connect with my clients through compassion, empathy and unconditional positive regard. I understand and cherish the intimacy and honor that is my role in my clients' lives.

I am invested in helping you recognize thinking and (in)action patterns that hold you back or help you flourish. You may gain clarity about attitudes and beliefs informing everyday behaviors. Building motivation and tapping into innate resilience is a major part of the healing journey. The focus can be on lowering stress, increasing safety and security in relationships, and developing healthy self-esteem. This involves exploring current coping and refining skills for various situations and settings. Over time and with practice, you may become more flexible and responsive. You may feel more readiness for new and harder challenges.
