My expertise includes working with LGBTQIA+, & BIPOC (particularly Latinx), youth (5-18 y.
Welcome! As a Bilingual (Spanish & English), Queer Bisexual Xicana, & Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I understand that most of us want to feel seen, heard, & accepted. And although outward validation & affirmation helps, the deep work & healing lies in being able to validate & affirm ourselves, all of our identities, & lived experiences. In our lives, as we continue evolving & changing as individuals, we reach points where the coping strategies we have previously used, & that have helped us survive at one point, may no longer serve us, & can actually interfere with our ability to connect to ourselves & others.

Being one of the few Spanish-speaking psychologists, I have had the opportunity to treat many Latino males and learned to adapt and adjust to each patient's personality.
I specialize in the psychology of men. I treat men experiencing sadness, control issues, stress, worry, and anger management. During my postdoctoral fellowship, I treated active military diagnosed with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and PTSD by conducting both individual and group therapy. Working with active military, I learned how to gain the individual's trust and confidence to let me into their lives, providing a nonjudgmental space to process life's events. My research has concentrated on men's issues. My doctoral dissertation focused on professional boxers and how they adjusted to retirement once the fame and fortune was gone.
