About

When telling your story, what are the parts that you leave out? Is it that you’ve been partnered for years and suspect that, at the heart of your low-grade dissatisfaction, is a yearning to live and love as your authentic self but you don’t know how to broach it with your significant other? Or that you believe that your chronic illness has made sexual intimacy unattainable? How about that you came out later in life and no longer know where or how to belong? Or even that you’re a healer whose whole life was built around becoming this Mega- Helper and now your cape feels more like a weighted mantle?
What if it looked like this instead? You and your partner lovingly discussing how to expand your relationship. You feeling more at peace with your body and exploring new ways to spark desire. You comfortably navigating the dating scene and finding community. You feeling energized by your work, aligned with your purpose, and more present with your loved ones.
I can help you get closer to the life you envision. I am a queer Latina therapist and provide inclusive and affirming care for all gender and sexual identities, ethnicities, and lifestyles. I have worked in healthcare for 12 years and am also trained in sex and relationship therapy. Please reach out. I would be honored to be the Virgil to your Dante.
