I use an anti-oppressive, person-centered and trauma-informed framework and I strive to be culturally sensitive and queer/LGBTQIA+ affirming.
There are multiple approaches we can take to therapy together, whether that is dealing with stressors in the present or processing difficult or traumatic events from the past. We can work to develop better insight and self-compassion, set boundaries and develop healthier relationships, learn coping skills, or unpack privilege and learn to be a better ally. I am comfortable and knowledgeable about topics relating to sex and sexuality, sex positivity, poly/non-monogamy, and intersections of identity. I have working knowledge in domestic violence, sexual abuse, sexual offending, and addiction issues.

As a queer counselor, I also have a passion for supporting other people within the LGBTQ community to address the unique ways that wounding can happen as we move through the world around us.
It’s hard to remember when you didn’t feel so overwhelmed that you’re barely holding it together. You’re stuck and it seems like one more challenge and you’ll be in chaos-mode, scrambling to find a way back to just keeping your head above water. Sometimes the rush of anxiety or fear is so uncomfortable that it affects your concentration and ability to follow through on plans or work. Shame has haunted you through the different parts of your life and it is hard to believe that you could feel seen or that you belong, especially when you've been hurt in the past. You want relief so that you can get your life back.

I utilize my identities as an Indigenous Latinx gay therapist to holistically understand your story and meet you at your current point in life.
You've come to the realization that there is a circumstance (or area of your life) that for whatever reason is not changing at the pace that you want, or worse staying stagnant. While your current situation might feel suffocating at times, and as cheesy as it might sound, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. But getting to that point might require the support from an outsiders perspective. This is where I come into the picture. By providing an array of experience, both lived and professionally, my relational approach to therapy can help you understand the tools (skills/coping strategies/insight) you have for your own growth.

I also provide services to transgender youth and their families on matters related to gender identity and exploration.
My approach to therapy is primarily based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). A core idea in ACT is that trying too hard to get rid of or control our emotions tends to backfire. Instead of trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts and feelings, I will help you learn to react differently to them so that you can keep your focus on living a meaningful and fulfilling life based on what’s important to you. We will work together to set meaningful goals to address your concerns–whether they relate to life transitions, depression, anxiety, body image, grief/loss, job or academic stress, or gender and sexuality.

I am a member of the LGBTQ community.
My belief is that we enter life with an inherent idea of who we are and what we want to accomplish. As we strive for acceptance, we cover ourselves in layers of others' expectations, eventually losing our ‘selves’ in the process. My desire is to help you strip away these layers to discover who you are at your core. We do this together by using feedback, intuitive healing, trauma informed therapy, dream work and active imagination. We do this by sitting with and listening to your stories of pain and unmet needs. We exchange heavier emotional layers with lighter ones until you can then stand in your own original brilliance.
