I identify as a queer person of color and hope to best serve those communities who feel underrepresented in professional fields. Common areas that I work with are trauma, gender identity and expression, career related difficulties, couples/interpersonal relationship issues, and mood/anxiety disorders. I work heavily with the linguistic ways we approach "problems" and through a narrative and solutions focused approach we would work on restoring your sense freedom as you navigate life's difficulties.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) specializing in Complex Trauma, Athletics-Focused Counseling, and Alcohol and Drug use. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and athletic populations using a collaborative approach that fosters a safe and supportive therapeutic environment. My goal is to work together with you to help navigate your life’s journey. If you have ever felt blocked or unreasonably triggered, have had flashbacks to unpleasant moments in your life, or are unreasonably afraid of the future, we can work towards more adaptive responses to otherwise detrimental, "freezing" moments.

Sometimes the way you relate to yourself and others no longer aligns with who you truly are, your values or how you envisioned your life. You may feel disconnected from yourself and others. You may feel anxious or misunderstood, and start to question your worth or love. To cope, you wear a mask to hide parts of yourself, which creates feelings of tension within yourself and with others. What if you lived your life according to your values while accepting and expressing your genuine self? I create a judgement free, safe therapeutic space where you can explore, understand and find your authentic self.

I approach counseling with empathy and acceptance through an intersectional lens. I support clients through short-term goals, long-term processing of trauma/past experiences, and the impact on the present using their existing strengths and interests. The therapeutic relationship itself is an effective avenue of healing and as such I value open communication.

There are times when everyone needs support, advice and new ways of coping. Whether you are struggling with a particular issue or just feel "stuck", I can help. As a licensed clinician and the founder of PRP, I have spent the last 17 years studying evidence and science based approaches to psychotherapy and the treatment of emotional/psychological issues in some of the country's best universities, including Northwestern University and UW-Madison. These experiences have allowed me to develop a holistic therapeutic approach where I integrate complementary researched-informed modalities to offer personalized and effective treatments.

Each life transition or stage can bring a combination of uncertainty and hope. Impactful life transitions include moments of processing loss and dealing with grief. Oftentimes, these moments bring on feelings of hopelessness, sadness, and loneliness. My job is to offer a secure space to help you through these powerful feelings and difficult times. In practicing from a strengths-based or client-centered lens, some of the most profound moments have been guiding clients to discover their resilience, strengths, and abilities to cope with presenting challenges. Clients of all backgrounds and identities are welcome in my practice.

Throughout my experience of practicing, a common need I have recognized is 'space'. Often individuals are seeking a safe space to be. To be themselves. To be seen. To be heard. If you are looking for a cozy or virtual space to release, re-fuel, and/or heal I am happy to facilitate the space you may be looking for.

I work from a "empathy above all" perspective and am extremely individualized in my approach with regards to client needs. Therapy is not "one size fits all," and neither is recovery; recovery from trauma, substance use disorder, alcohol use disorder, toxic relationships, disordered eating, and more. These are only a few examples of the issues I am qualified to work with.

The thought of starting therapy can be overwhelming, but I appreciate you for making the effort to figure out what's best for you! It's never late to start watering the wilted parts of yourself you've forgotten about. Sometimes you may need more guidance, a fresh perspective, or a chisme break. Whatever it is, we can sort through life's uncertainties together. As a multicultural queer Latina, I believe access and representation in therapy for the Latine community is crucial in eliminating mental health stigma.
