Hello and Welcome! I go by Dr. J and I am part of the clinical team at the Aguirre Center for Inclusive Psychotherapy. I seek to empower my clients by exploring how dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression have shaped their lives and/or resulted in marginalization, discrimination, and trauma. I greatly enjoy working with individuals who hold minoritized identities, particularly individuals and couples/polycules from the Q+BIPOC and Neurodivergent communities. Additionally, I enjoy working with athletes, and as a former collegiate athlete, I understand the unique internal and external pressures that athletes often face.

I work individuals and couples to help build better relationships and coping strategies for times of conflict and change. Having worked for several years with substance abuse groups along with anger management and family violence intervention, I have helped people of all ages to move beyond the negative self talk and low self esteem in order to be successful and thriving in their personal lives and relationships with others. I also offer EMDR to address trauma. Because I believe there is not a single way to deal with life, I like to meet my clients where they are in their own lives and help them to accomplish their personal goals.

Waitlist for new clients
Sometimes life is just hard, you are going along, and everything is fine, when, suddenly, wham!...everything changes, and leaves you asking, "now what?" You were taught how to do Algebra, but not how to deal with the situation you find yourself in. For me, therapy is about finding the right tools for you so that you can, in the healthiest way possible, thrive in the hardest times. I want you to know that you are amazing, and infinitely capable, and that sometimes you just need a little bit of help learning how to deal with life's curve balls.

More specifically - ADHD, autism spectrum disorder/Asperger's syndrome, and OCD; relationships, social skills, codependency, and narcissistic abuse; chronic illness, chronic pain, and holistic health and wellness.
My approach is to provide holistic care that focuses on three components of good health—the mind, body, and spirit. Instead of only addressing symptoms and teaching clients how to tolerate and manage illness, my purpose is to promote healing by treating the root causes. Through education, skills, connection, and lifestyle changes, I believe people can reclaim their health and regain control over their own wellbeing, and my goal is for you to leave therapy feeling self-empowered and resilient.

Together we’ll try to understand the issue that brought you to therapy, and other issues that may come to the surface along the way. With insight often comes the knowledge of what you would like to be different, or how to best manage the circumstances you’re facing.
