> Women, BIPoC and the Queer & Trans community are the heart of my practice < You are high achieving, reliable & responsible. Despite outward signs of success – ‘being the first in your family to ___' or 'having made it’ – you are suffering from imposter syndrome, self-worth, and acceptance (yours or your families). You are longing for relief from high stress levels & crushing anxiety, loneliness, or depression. Your relationships are strained & you have difficulty relating to others. You feel like nobody understands you. You don't feel truly seen. You rely on avoidance to escape feeling this way. Except that it's no longer working.
Ready to disrupt what no longer serves you? Interested in cultivating deeper self-awareness? Together we'll explore how significant life experiences shaped how you show up. This exploration will deepen understanding, self-compassion, & self-acceptance – all of which are needed to make better choices & practice new skills that can lead to more joyful living.
With nearly 30 years of experience working for social justice as an organizer, facilitator, and convener of diverse communities of color, in my practice I provide a unique perspective on the intersections of oppression (gender, race, class, sexuality, immigration) and the impact oppression (internalized, interpersonal, & institutional) has on mental health.
> Las mujeres, personas de color, y la comunidad Queer & Trans son el corazón de mi práctica < Eres confiable y responsable. A pesar de los signos externos de éxito, "ser el primero en tu familia en ____" o "haber logrado x cosa", sufres de pensamientos de impostor, bajo autoestima y falta de aceptación (tuya o de tu familia). Buscas alivio de altos niveles de estrés y ansiedad paralizante, soledad o depresión. Te sientes sol@, no vist@ y que nadie te puede entender. Tus relaciones son tensas y tienes dificultades relacionandote con los demás. Evades o escondes quién eres para evitar sentirte así. Excepto que ya no te funciona.
¿List@ para interrumpir lo que ya no te sirve? Juntos exploraremos cómo las experiencias importantes de tu vida moldearon quien eres hoy. Esta exploración profundizará tu comprensión, autocompasión y autoaceptación, todas cuales son necesarios para tomar mejores decisiones y practicar nuevas habilidades que pueden conducir a una vida más feliz y plena.
Con casi 30 años de experiencia trabajando por la justicia social como organizadora, facilitadora y convocante de diversas comunidades de color, en mi práctica brindo una perspectiva única sobre las intersecciones de la opresión (género, raza, clase, sexualidad, inmigración) y el impacto que la opresión tiene en la salud mental.
