About

Intersection Therapy is a group private practice focusing on the mental health and wellbeing of individuals from marginalized identities. We focus on ensuring that we provide the LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and Spanish speaking communities with effective mental health services to support their success. Providing therapy in the forms of Art Therapy, EMDR, and verbal counseling while incorporating sensitive humor helps to understand what your mind, body, and spirit have been holding onto for so long.
Art therapy can be an integral part in supporting individuals seeking an alternative form of processing through their past and present emotional needs. As culturally informed and inclusive therapists from different backgrounds, we each recognize that peoples’ experiences are unique and impact them differently.
We welcome individuals into a safe space to understand their experiences. With this understanding we can tap into the root of where you have felt pain and difference which has impacted your core belief system. We look forward to witnessing your journey in discovering a new sense of self!
Terapia psicológica es una experiencia donde uno puede buscar el cambio de vida que necesita. La alianza terapéutica entre terapista y paciente es importante en su trayecto de cambio cuando estás buscando tu autorrealización. La experiencia creada con mis pacientes en la oficina es una que trae comodidad para expresarse y confrontar factores que han limitado su progreso anterior. Utilizando terapia de arte, EMDR, y apoyándote donde estás en tu vida, podré ayudarte lograr y continuar esos cambios de vidas, emociones, y pensamientos que en el pasado te han contenido. Estoy aquí para apoyarte en realizar tu progreso.
Soy un terapista de arte bilingüe con certificaciones de terapia para individuos que han tenido problemas de sustancias y ofensas sexuales. Incorporo terapia de arte, EMDR, y consejería tradicional, para ayudarte procesar por los estresores del pasando y presente. Buscando las palabras para describir tus experiencias es posible por expresiones alternativas.
La ambivalencia se convierte a obstáculo cuando no sabes que esperar de un proceso nuevo como terapia. Dándote el espacio para animarte y expresar tu humor puedes utilizar terapia para encontrar tus necesidades y deseos. Me encuentro animando individuos para confrontar sus ambivalencias por parte de introspección artística. No esperes y contactanos hoy.
